Antibiotics and Its Effect on the Microbiome
In this episode, Gregory discusses an article from The Atlantic magazine detailing whether antibiotics, administered to our livestock and to our children, is contributing to the obesity epidemic. He also discusses how antibiotics are disrupting the microbiome of livestock and that effect on our own microbiome. Lastly he comments on the shocking revelation that obese donors of fecal transplants are causing the recipients to become obese. (Great primers for this podcast are NPE Radio #2: Probiotics & NPE Radio #3: Prebiotics.)
