Abstract

The gut microbiota play a crucial role in human health and disease, having profound influence on our metabolism and multiple effects on the innate and adaptive immune systems. Almost every organ in the body is affected by the quality, diversity and metabolic output of this microbiota. Diversity of the microbiota is a surrogate for health and loss of diversity is characteristic of many human diseases.
