Description

Gut Microbiota: Interactive Effects on Nutrition and Health focuses on the fascinating intestinal microbiome as it relates to nutrition. The book covers the core science in the microbiome field and draws links between the microbiome and nutrition in medicine. Reflecting the most current state of evidence available in the field, the early chapters introduce key concepts about the microbiome, and the latter focus on the application of the gut microbiome and nutrition science. Both human studies and animal studies (where appropriate) are discussed throughout the work.

Addressing topics such as gut microbiota throughout the lifespan, gut microbiota in health and disease, and genetic and environmental influences on gut microbiota, this book will provide scientists and clinicians who have an interest in the microbiome with an understanding of the future potential and limitations of this tool as they strive to make use of evidence-based diet information for the maintenance of good health.

About the Authors

Edward Ishiguro

Edward Ishiguro is a microbial biochemist. His 35-year research career is notable for the discovery of how bacteria in nongrowing or slow growing states develop temporary tolerance to antibiotics, a condition known as persistence, which is an important consideration in chemotherapy of infections involving biofilms. A recipient of the UVic Faculty of Science Teaching Excellence Award (2005) and the UVic Alumni Association Harry Hickman Teaching Excellence Award (2006), he currently dedicates much of his time as a science communicator to local schools and various lay audiences.
