In this module we discuss nutrition and metabolism. Interestingly, our gut bacteria (and, hence, gut health) may not only be influenced from birth, but the mechanism by which we are born. Please review this recent article (Links to an external site.) and develop a Critical Thinking post on the benefits of this strategy. Do you think that this evidence (along with other cites (Links to an external site.) you may come across) supports the need for on-going probiotic therapy in our diets as adults. Another angle could be: can we change our gut bacteria and, ultimately, our overall health (this 10-minute talk (Links to an external site.) is interesting and should help build your thoughts)?
Each student will be expected to make one original post (minimum of 250 words), which includes a minimum of one professional reference (that means no blogs, and no Wikipedia).
