In modern healthcare and research we are only beginning to appreciate the vital role that this vast number of microbes and their products, collectively known as gut microbiome, plays as the master regulator of our overall health. In this documentary I had the chance to showcase our research on gut microbiomes of Nepali populations and discuss how different factors linked to our lifestyle may affect our gut health.”
