When discussing research about components of the diet that affect the gut microbiota and possibly affect disease risk:
"...we have to look at how we eat and what we eat, and take care of it. Not that people eat what they want to eat, and then put drugs on top of it."
- Emeran Mayer, UCLA
Mayer said this in an interview at the 2014 Harvard Probiotics Symposium. Read more of this interview here.
Later this year, Mayer will release a book on the mind-gut connection.
