Missing Microbes

Martin Blaser MD

In this book, Dr. Blaser reviews his 30-year career as an infectious disease specialist and how his research at Vanderbilt and now NYU have shown a link between overuse of antibiotics and multiple modern diseases ranging from Celiac Disease and Crohn’s Disease to Autism and MRSA infections. This book is research heavy and is a little dense but it a good primer on the risks of modern antibiotic overuse.
