Eating for 100 Trillion: Symbiotic Metabolism and the Microbiome Revolution

April 13, 2014 | State of the Market Report

Multiple revolutions together make for a mega-revolution. Accelerating advances in our understanding of the role that microbes that live on and in the human body play in human health, coupled with advances in genomics, sequencing, and consumer electronics create novel diagnostics to measure nutritional well-being. Together, these promise a fundamental rethinking of our understanding of health and wellness, metabolism and disease, and food and nutrition. Within the microbiome revolution lies the potential to explain and respond to the global epidemic in obesity and diabetes, why certain diets work better than others, how inflammatory diseases can occur, and finally, how we can rationally design new food products to optimize personalized health and wellness. This report lays out the foundation of microbiome science, its implications and impact, and how it is creating opportunities in personal nutrition.
