We celebrated World Microbiome Day 2020 over the weekend by hosting a webinar "Gut feeling is real science: Know your gut microbiome!" with our expert speakers from Malaysia and Singapore who provided insights on the connection of gut microbiome to our health and mental state. During the live session, we received many questions from viewers but did not have time to get to everyone. So as promised, here are answers to some of the questions we did not get a chance to answer.
Did you know that more than half of your body is not human? The human cells make up roughly less than half of the body’s total cell count, while the rest are microbes. To understand the other half of ourselves, the Science Media Centre (SMC) Malaysia organised a webinar “Gut feeling is real science: Know your microbiome!” in conjunction with World Microbiome Day 2020 which was celebrated worldwide on Saturday, June 27.
