Speaker: Dr. Emma Allen-Vercoe, Professor, Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, University of Guelph

Did you know that your gut harbours a vast super-city of microbes that is responsible for a good deal of your health? These invisible critters make up an entire virtual organ that until recently we have for the most part ignored to our great detriment. Only in the last few years has science finally started to scrutinize the world of this ‘gut microbiota’ and to unlock its secrets.

In this lecture, Dr. Allen-Vercoe will explain the importance of your gut microbes, debunk some myths, and provide some tips for keeping healthy.

This event is hosted by Lifelong Learning Niagara.
