"Mikrobiom – Schlüssel zur Gesundheit?"

Planet Wissen

08.12.2023 In the Media

CMFI Board Members Lisa Maier und Christoph Stein-Thöringer were guests on the SWR program "Planet Wissen".


The microbiome plays an important role in our health and well-being. It helps with digestion, defending against disease and regulating the immune system. It also influences brain development and affects our mental state. Planet Wissen shows how we keep our microbial co-inhabitants in balance, why overabundant bacteria make people sick, and what thousands of years of fecal samples reveal about the human microbiome.
