This edition of our newsletter begins with a new article about how perinatal and environmental factors may shape the overlooked fungi present in breast milk.
Next up, we have a new randomized controlled trial that shows dietary sodium reduction is good for both the gut microbiome and blood pressure. You will also come across a systematic review that addresses the challenges and limitations of establishing causality in microbiome research, based on human microbiota-associated or humanized gnotobiotic rodents.
Finally, you will encounter new research that reveals that children born to mothers with inflammatory bowel disease present an altered gut microbiota composition and lower diversity, transferring abnormalities in the adaptive immune system to germ-free mice.
