Schwitalla, Sarah: The Toxic Microbiome

Gut microbiomes are dynamic communities varying from population to population and throughout life. In western societies, a toxic metabolic shift of gut microbiomes is a driver and underestimated risk factor for the development of many non-communicable chronic pathologies. This book identifies the root cause of these deleterious microbial changes. During the last several decades, increased consumption of animal products, coincident and correlated with global climate change, has been a contributing cause of undesirable gut microbiome changes.

Key Features

  • Establishes a connection between poor gut microbiome health and chronic disease and cancer development
  • Demonstrates how animal products and low-fiber diet patterns induce a detrimental metabolic transition of the gut microbiome from a human health maintaining towards a disease promoting state.
  • Discusses the opportunity of a toxic microbial metabolic signature as a powerful clinical and diagnostic tool to effectively predict chronic disease and cancer development
  • Provides the latest evidence on different strategies to rebuild a healthy microbiome metabolism and effectively prevent non-communicable diseases and colorectal cancer
  • Documents the gut microbiome benefits of a plant-based diet.
