Missing Microbes

book cover: missing microbes

Dr. Martin J. Blaser's new book Missing microbes: how the overuse of antibiotics is fueling our modern plagues will take you into the wilds of human microbiome where bacterial and human cells have always existed together and been responsible for the health and equilibrium of our body. 

Learn how this symbiotic relationship is being irrevocably damaged by the overuse of antibiotics and how this threatens the extinction of irreplaceable microbes leading to terrible health consequences. 

Learn how you can avoid even more catastrophic health problems. 

This trail-blazing research reveals how antibiotic  overuse can contribute to obesity, asthma, diabetes and even certain forms of cancer. 

Blaser's Missing Microbes is an amazing research work (did you know 70% of antibiotics in use are actually used to fatten livestock) and it is a must read for the future of your health.
