The microbial cells in the human gut form an ecosystem that regulates and maintains human health. IAFNS has joined the American Society for Nutrition in an effort to harmonize approaches to studying the gut microbiome to better explore these connections. The scientific session summarized how improving the accuracy, precision and comparability of microbiome research will build understanding of the associations between the microbiome, health and disease prevention.
This research aids the FDA Action Plan by estimating the American population’s Cadmium exposures in food, by age group and consumption patterns of certain high-risk foods; and by determining circumstances in which exposures exceed tolerable daily intakes.
