The Gut Balance Revolution

Gerald Mullen, MD

It seems like every year a new connection is made between the gastrointestinal tract and human health. Dr. Mullen, associate professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins, learned early in his career about the close association between gut health and personal health. His research at the University of Maryland and now Hopkins has shed light onto the association between the bacteria in the gut and obesity, metabolic syndrome and systemic inflammation. This book would be a good read for anyone wanting to know more about the human microbiome, from one of its top researchers in the country.
