Thanks to Bonnie Jones for sending THIS ACKNOWLEDGEMENT of what appears to be a clear role between the gut and our brains, along with the reminder that we still don't understand what it all means! Thank you, Mrs. Jones!
Most recognize the name Michael J. Fox as the actor from the Back to the Future movies and a number of other successful comedy programs. Many are also aware that he was diagnosed with early-onset Parkinson's Disease back in 1991 at the age of 29, a fact he disclosed to the public seven years later. He has devoted much of his life since to the foundation he started to promote research toward finding a cure for the disease. My grandfather sent me THIS ARTICLE on the Michael J Fox Foundation website, which gives a broad overview of the work being done in the microbiome. Thanks, Poppy!
Note: While the author 's source for the article is here at the Center for Microbiome Innovation at UC San Diego, I was NOT their expert (ha ha)!
