Dr. Robert Martindale is the chief of surgery and a professor at the Oregon Health Sciences University. In this podcast, he presents an overview of the human microbiome and kicks off the discussions of gut health and the microbiome at ASPEN 2015.
The microbiome is becoming a very “hot” topic in healthcare, influencing care and therapeutics at every level. It has become steeped in science and increased clinical relevance. The microbiome plays a major role in supporting the GI tract and preventing infection. The cells of the microbiome outnumber our human cells almost 10:1! We are exposed to prebiotics from very early in life – breast milk has oligosaccharides that support a healthy microbiome.
Dr. Martindale’s talk and the other presentations from ASPEN shed light on the microbiome and its role in gastroenterology. For more detail, listen to the full podcast.
