The Human Microbiome is Our Other Genome

Obese individuals have a gut microbiome very different from nonobese individuals, which alters lipid metabolism. Do you think it might be possible to treat conditions such as obesity by manipulating the microbiome? How would you get living microorganisms into the gut for treatment?

Summary Introduction

To determine: The possibility to treat health conditions such as obesity by manipulating the microbiome.

Introduction: Microbiome consists of microbes that live on or in the human body. These microbes are essential for the survival of human beings. The genetic and metabolic activities of these microbes contribute a lot in maintaining the proper health conditions in humans.

Explanation of Solution

The human body acts as a living place for a large number of microbes. These microbes include bacteria, fungi, and protozoans. The alterations in the function and specific composition of gut microbiome cause obesity and obesity-related metabolic disorders...
