Bacteria and other microbes have long been sources of fear, but new research into the #microbiome at #NIH and elsewhere is showing just how important they are to keeping people healthy. https://irp.nih.gov/blog/post/2018/06/microbes-within-us-a-chat-with-science-writer-ed-yong

Nearly 1 in 4 American adults is obese, but many of these individuals do not suffer from the conditions like #diabetes and #insulin resistance generally associated with #obesity. New research from #NIH NHGRI researchers might help explain why. https://irp.nih.gov/blog/post/2018/06/molecular-marker-may-curb-obesity-related-inflammation

#obesity often leads to severe health problems, but a team of #NIH IRP researchers has identified a molecule that might grant an innate resistance to those conditions in some obese individuals. #TestTubeTuesday #IRPscience https://irp.nih.gov/blog/post/2018/06/molecular-marker-may-curb-obesity-related-inflammation

Research into the collection of microorganisms that live in and on our bodies — known as the #microbiome — has dramatically expanded in recent years and is a top priority at the #NIH. https://irp.nih.gov/blog/post/2018/06/microbes-within-us-a-chat-with-science-writer-ed-yong
