About This Event

Event Description:

1000 species of bacteria live in our intestines with which we live in symbiosis. The brain and gut are closely connected, and changes in the composition of the gut microbiota are associated with many autoimmune diseases and mental disorders. The profile of our bacteria affects how our brain will function. Food, antibiotics can change our microbiota – positive or negative.
