Another great webcast from SciShow. In this webcast Hank Green discusses how we have used plants to treat us and improve our health.
In the webcast, Hank also does a good job touching a bit on the scientific inquiry process (which is something I find interesting and I think is very important for people living in society today to understand).
Gut Bacteria Explored as Medical Treatment – even for Cancer
Posted on March 14, 2016 Comments (0)
The interaction between gut bacteria and human health continues to be a fertile area of medical research. It appears to be in the very early days of such research. Of course, as I have said before, headline making news often doesn’t result in medical breakthrough, and even when it does a decade isn’t a long wait for it to happen.
The complex interactions involved in human health is another area that has huge room for research going forward.
