This is the first study to relate severity of behavior symptoms to gut microbiome composition within individuals over time and suggests a dynamic relationship between ASD-associated symptoms and gut microbes.


Sugar not so nice for your child's brain development

Date: 31/03/2021

New research has shown in a rodent model that daily consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages during adolescence impairs performance on a learning and memory task during adulthood.


How the gut microbiota develops in the first five years of life

Date: 31/03/2021

A new study has found that the human gut microbiota largely reaches an adult-like composition by five years of age, but important differences remain. Several bacterial taxa that have been associated with human health are acquired late in childhood and have not reached their adult abundance by five years of age.


Scientists Investigate the Role of Gut Microbiota in Risk for ‘Severe Mental Disorders’

Date: 20/03/2021

The authors suggest "the analysis of microbiota should be included in the comprehensive assessment generally performed in populations at high risk for SMD as it can inform predictive models and ultimately preventative strategies.”

The gut mycobiome influences the metabolism of processed foods

Date: 05/03/2021

Researchers found that exposure to a processed diet, which is representative of a typical Western diet, led to persistent differences in fungal communities that significantly associated with differential deposition of body mass in male mice, as compared to mice fed a standardized diet.


Gut microbiome implicated in healthy aging and longevity

Date: 18/02/2021

Researchers have identified distinct signatures in the gut microbiome that are associated with either healthy or unhealthy aging trajectories, which in turn predict survival in a population of older individuals.


What happens in the mouth ... doesn't stay in the mouth

Study: Fructose syrup disrupts gut microbiome but fruit can undo negative effects

Date: 11/11/2020

A high-fructose syrup diet negatively disrupts the gut microbiome but a diet high in fruit modulates it favourably, supporting digestive health and counteracting harmful effects of excessive fructose, according to a pilot intervention study.


Diet and lifestyle during pregnancy linked to modifications in infants' DNA

Date: 06/11/2020
