Schizophrenia and the Mycobiome: A Pilot Study

I don’t often find articles of interest about organisms of the human biome other than bacteria, but yesterday, I came across one looking at the mycobiome in schizophrenia that is definitely worth writing about.  I’ve actually covered research by this research team in the past. Several  years ago, they looked at people with schizophrenia and … More Schizophrenia and the Mycobiome: A Pilot Study

And yet MORE on the Yeast/IBD Connection

Back in September, I wrote about a summary I’d stumbled across describing the current state of research into the connection between the mycobiome and inflammatory bowel disease.  Then, just a few days ago, I put up a link [i]on my Biome Buzz Facebook page about the connection between alterations in the mycobiome and obesity.  (Briefly: … More And yet MORE on the Yeast/IBD Connection

The Mycobiome, the Bacterial Microbiome and Inflammatory Bowel Disease

An interesting piece of research[i] was present last week at a conference in Chicago.  Firstly, as I’ve talked about before on this blog, it’s important to remember that humans’ incredibly complex natural ecosystems have a mycobiome (native yeast population), just as we have a bacterial microbiome and should have a macrobiome, and without a doubt, … More The Mycobiome, the Bacterial Microbiome and Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Interesting Bits and Pieces about the Mycobiome

I found a new article[i] yesterday on the mycobiome (yeast).  To sum it up – we know next-to-nothing about what comprises a healthy one.  🙂 There were a few very interesting items in it that deserve mention: I already knew that there were differences in the bacterial microbiome between babies fed formula versus breast-fed, in … More Interesting Bits and Pieces about the Mycobiome
