Science Cabaret by Dr. Rodney Dietert "How to train your super organism..via your microbiome"

8 199 vues

Publié le

Attendees (and their microbes) at this event enjoyed a lively discussion on how we might better interact with our environment to support a healthier life for ourselves and our children. Think with your microbes about why we have to suffer from ever-increasing numbers of debilitating chronic diseases (asthma, food allergies, diabetes, autoimmune conditions, obesity, heart disease and cancer).

with Dr. Rodney Dietert, Cornell University Professor, Department of Microbiology and Immunology

Dr. Rodney Dietert is an internationally-known author, lecturer, scientist, book series editor, and educator. He is the author of Strategies for Protecting Your Child’s Immune System, and Science Sifting: Tools for Innovation in Science and Technology.

  13. 13. The Complete Human: Three Domains of Life Eukaryota Archaea Bacteria Majority- Microbial Humans (based on cell and gene numbers) Domains of Life Genomes First ~ 25,000 genes Approximately 90% microbial by cell number Second ~ 10 million genes Superorganism Mammalian Microbial Eukaryotes
  14. 14. Archaea – also in your gut
  15. 15. Earlier Microbial Partners Lynn Marguluis, famed biologist (former spouse of Carl Sagan), published her endosymbiosis theory in 1967concerning the bacterial origins of both mitochondria and chloroplasts. Crisp et al. Genome Biology 2015, 16:50 New examples of horizontally transferred genes were recently identified in humans. Apparently, our second genome can become part of our first genome.
  16. 16. Our Microbiome Produces a “Fingerprint” of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) Arasaradnam et al. PLoS One. 2014 Oct 16;9(10):e107312. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in urine can be used to differentiate celiac disease from irritable bowel syndrome based on distinctive microbiome-produced metabolites. Bezerra de Araujo Filho et al. Archaea. 2014 Oct 13;2014:576249. Children living near a sanitary landfill had elevated breath methane correlated with elevated methane producing Archaea in the gut microbiome (unrelated to socio economic status).

  19. 19. Microbiota are seen as an “Integral Organ” If they are missing, it analogous to a form of birth defect. Ramifications of Self Incompleteness e.g., Clarke et el., Minireview: Gut microbiota: the neglected endocrine organ. Mol Endocrinol. 2014 Aug;28(8):1221-38. Brown JM, Hazen SL.

  26. 26. Environmental chemicals and drugs reported to affect the gut microbiome (Note added: In contrast with antibiotics, Vitamin D is on the list because it affects, but does not necessarily “harm,” the microbiome. Many people are, in fact, deficient in Vitamin D. In the Ooi et al. paper listed below, it shifts the microbiome to increase protection AGAINST colitis) • Heavy metals (e.g., cadmium, lead, arsenic) • Other metals (iron, selenium, zinc) • PCBs (Choi et al., EHP 2013) • Particulate matter (PM10) (Kish et al. PloS One 2013) • Chlopyrifos (Joly et al, ESPRI, 2013) • High fat diet (Myles et al. Plos One 2014) • Valproate (de Theije et al. Brain Behav Immun 2013) • Antibiotics (Ng et al., Nature 2013) • Vitamin D (Ooi et al., J.Nutr 2013)

Best year for my health in at least 30 years. Qualifications: I am not a MD. This is my personal story and it is not intended to be nor is it medical advice.

  33. 33. Three Take-Home Points • Failure to self-complete in the newborn may be the single greatest health risk across a lifetime. We need microbiome seeding on every birth plan and active management of our “second genome” (i.e., seed, feed, protect). • The immune system and the microbiome need to co-mature in a narrow window of development or persistent immune dysfunction and elevated risk of NCDs are likely. • Safety needs to be based on the whole human. It is the superorganism that needs protection.
