Genetics and lifestyle are thought to be the two most important determinants of good health. But that is not the whole story. We have a second genome, our gut bacteria, that sets the dial on our bodies. Unlike our DNA, we can influence the gut bacteria, or microbiota, to optimize all aspects of our health.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Good Gut to be better than the print version?

Often I use library books or listen to an audio book before purchasing print and I have already gone and purchased this hardcopy to use as a reference.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Good Gut?

The link between your gut and mood.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes I found the scientific data and information very useful and wanted to continue to learn more.

Any additional comments?

I chose this book looking for answers to many media topics regarding health and your "gut". This book balanced scientific data and insightful, helpful information in correlation with your health. I enjoyed the book and knowledge I gained from it.
