Human microbiome

As promised, here is the link to the Human Food Project, also known as the Anthropology of Microbes.  This is exciting new work to start deciphering the complex connections between our gut flora, our diets, and our overall health.  You can subscribe to the website to get alerts when there are new posts , always an interesting read when it arrives in my IN box.  Jeff Leach, the lead on this project, is the author of a new book called Rewild that may also be of interest (I have already had one conversation with a student about this book this term!)  check out the “About” section in the website to learn about the key objectives of the project, this is a GREAT example of applying anthropology.
