Microbiome: Gut Bugs and You | Warren Peters | TEDxLaSierraUniversity
Can gut bugs change the world? Join Warren Peters on a journey into understanding your microbiome and the new discoveries changing the way we understand diabetes, obesity, Alzheimer's disease, autism, and our everyday health and wellness. If asked, he will tell you that the first part of his medical career was in general surgery, where “if something is wrong with you, I will cut it out." The next was dedicated to lifestyle and natural medicines, where “if something is wrong with you, just try harder." And finally, the last part is dedicated to the molecular and genetic basis of obesity, where "if something is wrong with you, it is the fault of your parents and the changing environment." Within these three perspectives, reside the virtues of common sense and wisdom. He obtained his medical degree from Loma Linda University, his surgical training at the Mason Clinic in Seattle Washington, and, his Master’s degree in biostatistics and epidemiology from Loma Linda University. He is privileged to travel and lecture nationally and internationally on topics of nutrition, wholeness, and wellness. He has practiced surgical care, wholistic care, and, primary care in Washington, Maryland, Virginia, and California. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Antibiotic Exposure, The Microbiome and Obesity
A number of variables can cause signficant changes in the human microbiome early in life including birth method and antibiotic exposure. Understanding these shifts is important because new research suggests that shifts in the microbiome of infants could make them more prone to gain weight as adults. Participants will discuss variables involved in the development of the infant microbiome and how it affects adult metabolism and body composition in mouse models.

The GUT BIOME: artificial sweeteners;Yo-Yo diets; regaining weight?
Prevmedheartrisk.com In 2015, researchers at the Weisman Institute in Israel demonstrated that saccharin, sucralose and aspartame created insulin resistance in lab mice. Antibiotic treatment and repopulation with normal bacteria cured the glucose intolerance. Other studies have shown that faecal transplants from obese humans made lab mice gain weight. In fact, gut biome or bacteria have been demonstrated to cause "yoyo" dieting effects, going back to pre-diet weights. One researcher decided to make mouse chow pellets out of breakfast cereal and pizza. Obese rats given this pizza/cereal chow did not lose weight after faecal transplant. Obese rats given regular diet did lose weight after faecal transplant. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor.

Utilizing Gnotobiotic Mice to Understand the Role of the Microbiome in Murine Disease Models
The environmentally exposed surfaces of mammals, such as the skin, mouth, gut, and vagina, are colonized by a diverse ecosystem of microbes. Though many of these bacteria - particularly those of the distal gut - are considered symbiotic, the microbiome has the capacity to induce both pro- and anti- inflammatory responses. Accumulating evidence suggests that a properly balanced gut microbiome is crucial for a correctly functioning immune system, and that imbalances in the microbial community of the intestine are linked to a multitude of auto-inflammatory and auto-immune diseases. This symposium will discuss the roles of the microbiome in murine models of various inflammatory disease states, and the advantages to utilizing germ-free/gnotobiotic mice when probing disease models with a microbiome component.

Special microbes make anti-obesity molecule in the gut
Microbes may just be the next diet craze. Researchers have programmed bacteria to generate a molecule that, through normal metabolism, becomes a hunger-suppressing lipid. Mice that drank water laced with the programmed bacteria ate less, had lower body fat and staved off diabetes — even when fed a high-fat diet — offering a potential weight-loss strategy for humans.

Lora Hooper (UT Southwestern) 1: Mammalian gut microbiota: Mammals and their symbiotic gut microbes
https://www.ibiology.org/immunology/gut-microbiota/ Overview: Dr. Hooper studies how the gut microbiota changes during illness or disease and how it influences our ability to fight infections. In part 2, Hooper explains how a healthy gut microbes induce a host protein called RegIIIγ which helps to protect the host from infection by pathogenic gram-positive bacteria. Detailed description: In this lecture, Dr. Hooper introduces us to the fascinating world of human microbiota; the microorganisms that live within our bodies. Although we may think that most bacteria are harmful, Hooper provides ample evidence that symbiotic gut microbes are important to good human health. Her lab is interested in understanding how the microbiota changes during illness or disease and how it influences our ability to fight infections. Using germ-free mice, they were able to demonstrate that a healthy microbiota can shape development of the host immune system and provide protection against dangerous infections like salmonella. In the second part of her talk, Hooper explains how the balance of organisms in the microbiota is maintained. By comparing DNA microarray data from normal mice and germ-free mice, Hooper’s lab was able to look for genes induced by the microbiota. They identified RegIIIγ, an important protein involved in the protection against pathogenic bacteria. They showed that RegIIIγ forms pore complexes in the membranes of gram-positive bacteria and kills them. In mice and humans, the intestinal epithelium is coated with a layer of mucus. Typically, there is a gap between gut bacteria, which are found in the outer part of the mucus layer, and the epithelial cells. Hooper’s lab showed that RegIIIγ helps to maintain this gap by preventing gram-positive bacteria from colonizing the intestinal epithelial surface. This, in turn, prevents infection of the host. Speaker Biography: Although she always was interested in science, Lora Hooper’s love for biology started after taking an introductory class at Rhodes College in Memphis, TN where she was an undergraduate. Hooper continued her graduate education in the Molecular Cell Biology and Biochemistry Program at Washington University in St. Louis where she joined Dr. Jacques Baenziger's lab. For postdoctoral training, she stayed at Washington University, in the lab of Jeffrey Gordon, where she began her studies of the interaction between gut bacteria and host cells and discovered that bacteria have the capacity to modify carbohydrates important for cell signaling. Currently, Hooper is a Professor at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator. She has established one of the handful of mouse facilities that have the capacity to breed germ-free mice. Using these mice, her lab explores the symbiotic relationship between a host and its microbiota with the aim of providing insight into human health. Hooper was a recipient of the Edith and Peter O’Donnell Awards in 2013 and in 2015 she was elected to the National Academy of Sciences.

Bacteria From Obese People Make Mice Fatter
According to data from a recent study by researchers at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, germs transplanted from obese people made mice gain weight. According to data from a recent study by researchers at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, germs transplanted from obese people made mice gain weight. For the study, researchers took fecal samples from pairs of twins that had one skinny twin and one obese twin, to see how they would affect the mice who are identical and were raised to have no bacteria produced in their stomachs. When researchers fed the fecal samples from the digestive tract of the obese twin to the lab mice, it made them fatter. The researchers also fed fecal samples from the stomachs of the skinny twin to mice and found that the bacteria in it actually prevented them from gaining weight. It is common for mice to eat each other's feces and exchange bacterial microbes but the germs from the skinny twin out-competed the germs from the obese twin. Jeffrey Gordon, the senior investigator of the study said: "Eating a healthy diet encourages microbes associated with leanness to quickly become incorporated into the gut. But a diet high in saturated fat and low in fruits and vegetables thwarts the invasion of microbes associated with leanness." The results of the study might be used to come up with a probiotic bacteria that can be taken to manage weight loss.

Widely used food additive promotes colitis, obesity and metabolic syndrome
* Please pass on to those with digestion concerns - Widely used food additive promotes colitis, obesity and metabolic syndrome, research shows The team fed mice two very commonly used emulsifiers, polysorbate 80 and carboxymethylcellulose, at doses seeking to model the broad consumption of the numerous emulsifiers that are incorporated into almost all processed foods. Such changes in bacteria triggered chronic colitis in mice genetically prone to this disorder, due to abnormal immune systems. In contrast, in mice with normal immune systems, emulsifiers induced low-grade or mild intestinal inflammation and metabolic syndrome, characterized by increased levels of food consumption, obesity, hyperglycemia and insulin resistance. Dietary emulsifiers impact the mouse gut microbiota promoting colitis and metabolic syndrome Nature 519, 92–96 (05 March 2015) http://healthresearchreport.me/2015/02/26/widely-used-food-additive-promotes-colitis-obesity-and-metabolic-syndrome-research-shows/

Common Medication Sabotages Metabolism, Causes Obesity
TrutherGirls T-Shirts: http://thetruthergirls.spreadshirt.com Studies show antibiotics alter metabolism and cause weight gain! Some people have the hardest time with their weight and claim they have a slow metabolism. As it turns out, this may actually be true and may have been caused by antibiotics. Fortunately, it looks like there IS a solution which lies in restoring the colonic microbiome, i.e. the healthy bacteria that live in your gut.

Human Derived Gut Microbiota Modulates Colonic Secretion in Mice …  – Bhattarai et al. (2017)
Serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT), an important neurotransmitter and a paracrine messenger in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, regulates intestinal secretion by its action primarily on 5-HT3 and 5-HT4 receptors. Recent studies highlight the role of gut microbiota in 5-HT biosynthesis. In this study we determine if human-derived gut microbiota affect host secretory response to 5-HT and 5-HT receptor expression. We used proximal colonic mucosa-submucosa preparation from age matched Swiss Webster germ free (GF) and humanized (HM; ex-GF colonized with human gut microbiota) mice. 5-HT evoked a significantly greater increase in short circuit current (ΔIsc) in GF compared to HM mice.

Leptin and the neural circuit regulation food intake and glucose metabolism
Leptin and the neural circuit regulation food intake and glucose metabolism Air date: Wednesday, January 11, 2017, 3:00:00 PM Category: WALS - Wednesday Afternoon Lectures Runtime: 00:57:39 Description: NIH Director’s Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series The discovery of leptin has led to the elucidation of a robust physiologic system that maintains fat stores at a relatively constant level. Leptin is a peptide hormone secreted by adipose tissue in proportion to its mass. This hormone circulates in blood and acts on the hypothalamus to regulate food intake and energy expenditure. When fat mass falls, plasma leptin levels fall stimulating appetite and suppressing energy expenditure until fat mass is restored. When fat mass increases, leptin levels increase, suppressing appetite until weight is lost. By such a mechanism, total energy stores are stably maintained within a relatively narrow range. Recessive mutations in the leptin gene are associated with massive obesity in mice and some humans. Treatment with recombinant leptin markedly reduces food intake and body weight. The low leptin levels in patients with leptin mutations are also associated with multiple abnormalities including infertility, diabetes, and immune abnormalities all of which are corrected by leptin treatment. These findings have established important links between energy stores and many other physiologic systems and led to the use of leptin as a treatment for an increasing number of other human conditions including a subset of obesity, some forms of diabetes including lipodystrophy and hypothalamic amenorrhea, the cessation of menstruation seen in extremely thin women. Identification of a physiologic system that controls energy balance establishes a biologic basis for obesity. Recent studies have explored the relationship between leptin and the reward value of food. In addition, new methods for identifying neurons activated by leptin and other stimuli have been developed as have methods for noninvasively activating cells using radio waves. These new approaches are being applied to studies of the neural processes that control feeding, a complex motivational behavior.

Microbiome – How Your Microbiome Impacts Weight Loss

We have 3 key questions regarding weight loss. Have you struggled with your weight? Have you tried numerous diets where you've lost weight, but then ended up regaining those pounds and more? Have you given up? If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, then the answer resides in the makeup of your gut microbiome. While an unhealthy diet, a sedentary lifestyle, and perhaps your genetic makeup can contribute to your battle of the bulge, more and more research is showing that this is not a human genetic issue but rather a microbiome issue. Many times, the foods you crave, have very little to do with want you want. Rather it's your microbiome that's influencing your food choices. How to we know this to be true? Well, the most famous study in this area is the one done on identical human twins. Each twin has the same genetic makeup. However one twin was overweight and the other twin was lean. The researchers then took their human microbiome and injected it into the gut flora of mice so that the microbiome of the mice took on the nature of the human twin. Each recipient mice was given the same diet and daily activities. The results were that the mice with the microbiome from the lean human twin stayed lean. And, the mice with the mircobiome from the overweight human twin gained weight and stored fat. For the overweight twins, their microbial community was dominated by Firmicutes. Whereas, the microbial community of the lean twins were dominated by Bacteroidetes. Unfortunately, there are several common triggers that increase firmicutes over bacterioidetes: Trigger 1 – High intake of omega-6 fatty acids from vegetable oils. Most processed foods use some form of vegetable oil for shelf stability. The problem is these types of omega-6 oils trigger inflammation, which favors the Firmicutes. Trigger 2 – Animal protein creates less diversity in the microbial community, which then allows the Firmicutes to dominate. Trigger 3 – Sugar and processed carbohydrates, like modern-day wheat, are fuel for Firmicutes, which again allows them to dominate your abdominal microbiome. Trigger 4 – Stress triggers the releases of adrenal hormones like cortisol and adrenaline, which lower the Bacterioidetes in your abdominal cavity. To help you started on the right path, Judy and I would like to offer you a 4 step program. Step #1 – Eliminate omega-6 vegetable oils from your diet. Ones like Soybean Oil Canola Oil Vegetable Oil While the food industry, and our government, have tried to convince us that these omega-6 vegetable oils are safe and heart-healthy, they are not. These oils are inflammatory, and help create an environment that allow Firmicutes to flourish, which then creates toxins that your body has to address. Step #2 – Replace the omega-6 vegetable oils with omega 3 healthy fats like Coconut Oil Avocados Grass-fed Butter Fish Rich in Omega 3s Grass-fed Beef Extra-virgin Olive Oil When used in weight management studies, these healthy, anti-inflammatory omega 3 fats create an environment where healthy gut flora can dominate, which lowers inflammation levels, produces significantly less toxins, and increases the probability of weight loss. Step #3 – Eliminate Wheat from your diet. Why are we targeting wheat. Because modern-day wheat has been genetically engineered so that it now has a higher glycemic index that table sugar. It's fuel for firmicutes and a toxin producer. Step #4 – Limit Your Sugar Intake Most of the foods you eat come packaged. With a section on the label for Nutrition Facts. Find it and locate the line that says “Total Carbohydrate” Under this you will see a line that says “Total Sugars” This is the line that you want to pay attention to. Here's what you need to remember: 1 teaspoon of sugar is equal to 4 grams. If you divided the number of grams of sugar by 4 you will determine the number of teaspoons of sugar per serving. Ideally you only want to consume foods that are less than 1 teaspoon or 4 grams of sugar per serving. If you have any questions about this material, then please either email me at [email protected] or call me directly at 630-936-8079.

Fat Mice Linked to Gut Microbes
Science News reports new research in rodents suggests gut microbes cause obesity by sending messages via the vagus nerve to pack on pounds. In the June 9th issue of Nature magazine, researchers report bacteria in the intestines produce a molecule called acetate, which works through the brain and nervous system to make rats and mice fat. Yale University endocrinologist Gerald Shulman led the study. He said acetate also increases levels of a hunger hormone called ghrelin, which could lead animals and people to eat even more. Biochemist Jonathan Schertzer of McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada, called the paper a “tour-de-force." https://www.sciencenews.org/article/obesity%E2%80%99s-weight-gain-message-starts-gut http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Being Human | Rob Knight
Whether we’re fat or thin depends on the bacteria in our gut, says biochemist Rob Knight in this video for the World Economic Forum. It’s our microbes, more than our DNA, that makes us who we are: “I can tell you with over 90% accuracy whether you're lean or obese based solely on sequencing your microbial genes,” he says. Knight’s lab at the University of California, San Diego is pioneering global research on microbes, and how they may be linked to a range of conditions from anxiety to autism. Click on the link to watch the full presentation, or read key quotes below. On exploring our inner ecosystem “Each of us consists of about 10 trillion cells that carry our genome that we think of as human, but we have inside us as many as 100 trillion microbial cells - tiny organisms too small to see with the naked eye. And our whole human genome consists of about 20,000 genes, depending on what you count exactly. But our microbial gene catalog ranges from two to 20 million microbial genes, and so by that measure we might think of ourselves as less than one percent human.” “The human microbiome project, which was a huge hundred seventy-three million dollar initiative funded by National Institutes of Health (NIH) to jump-start research on the microbiome, together with a consortium of about 400 other researchers. We mapped the healthy human microbiome and 250 healthy volunteers working at many sites in the body, and the speed with which this escaped the pages of a scientific journals to the cover of Scientific American and then to the cover of The Economist was really dramatic.” On our unique microbial fingerprint “We can prove cause-and-effect by using mice. We can raise mice without any microbes of their own, and then transmit to them the microbes of someone who’s fat versus someone who’s thin; what you see is the amount of weight they gain depends on the microbes they got. Additionally we can do this for behavior: you can make a mouse more anxious by giving it the microbes of a more anxious mouse, or less anxious by giving it the microbes of the less anxious mouse. This is really remarkable in the case of obesity which a lot of people attribute to willpower or to our human genes; or in the case of anxiety because what this shows is that microbes can affect these traits that affect how we think of who we are.” On the potentials of microbial research “One my colleagues at Caltech has done work on a mouse model that resembles some features of autism, where you give pregnant female mice a chemical that simulates a virus, and then their pups have many dysfunctional features that resemble autism. So they have cognitive deficits, they have social deficits, they have got gut barrier dysfunction, and they have compulsive behavior. Part of the reason for this, is that they have a dysfunctional microbial community that is different from the microbial community of a normal mouse.” “You can induce the same symptoms by injecting normal mice with one chemical that this altered microbial community produces, and then you can rescue them by giving them a probiotic, a kind of beneficial bacteria isolated from the human gut. This is model work and we do not yet know how it will apply to humans, but the potential for this kind of research to affect a wide range of diseases that you might not have thought were linked to your gut is tremendous. One remarkable fact about the gut microbiome, is (if you think of it as being like an organ) that is the only organ you can transplant without doing surgery.”

Study: Skin patch that dissolves fat in mice could help treat human obesity
Scientists have made a skin patch that dissolves fat in targeted areas on lab mice. It could be used to treat humans, if further testing reveals it's effective. The study's co-author called it a "noninvasive alternative to liposuction." The patch deploys drugs contained in nanoparticles too small to see. These particles enter the skin through painless microscopic needles. The particles dissolve fat near the patch (and not throughout the body).

A key function of commensal microbes is to contribute to the adaptive immune repertoire and to diverse lymphocyte effector functions. T cell responses against non-invasive commensals contribute to shaping the repertoire of effector/memory and regulatory T cells. How T cells elicited by commensal bacteria can influence autoimmunity is a central question that remains unsolved. The Littman Lab studies the antigenic specificity of microbiota-induced T cells and the mechanisms by which their functions are acquired upon interaction with distinct commensal species. His lab finds that Th17 cells, which are central to mucosal barrier defense but also participate in autoimmune disease, are induced by specific constituents of the microbiota, and acquire effector function only after additional exposure to endogenous adjuvants, such as the serum amyloid A proteins. The lab's studies in mice are not only relevant for human autoimmune diseases, many of which have Th17 cell involvement, but may also provide insights into how commensal microbe-specific T cell responses could be harnessed for mucosal vaccination and cancer immunotherapy.

By making lab mice more closely mirror real-world mice, the approach may improve the odds of success as research moves from mouse to man. The method could also help advance studies in metabolism, behavior, and endocrinology. The results published in Cell: www.cell.com/cell/fulltext/S0092-8674(17)31065-6
Save the Microbes
NYU Langone Medical Center, Lab of Martin Blaser. Humans have co-evolved with the resident microbes that call us "home", known as the microbiota, consisting of trillions of cells that colonize our bodies. The microbiota carry out many beneficial functions, such as producing vitamins, aiding in digestion, and protecting against invading microbes, but disruption from antibiotics or delivery by Caesarian section may have consequences for human health. Recently, antibiotic use has been linked with obesity and asthma. Using both human studies and experimentally observed mice, we are beginning to understand how antibiotics may lead to the disappearance of microbes and to identify key microbes that impact our health.

English/Nat It may be too early for the average couch potato to start cheering, but mice looking to lose weight have something new to celebrate. Scientists have created genetically-altered strains of mice that can eat a high-fat diet without gaining weight, which might lead to a new obesity treatment for people. It might look like the big mouse has been overindulging while the little guy has been counting calories. But these two mice have been fed the exact same high-fat diet - the only difference is that the smaller mouse is missing a single gene. According to scientists at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, the missing gene means the mouse cannot store fat. This keeps him looking trim while the genetically normal mouse gets chubby. Professor of Biochemistry, Kiran Chada, says this represents a breakthrough in a new approach to curing obesity. SOUNDBITE: (English) "This mouse, which is normal except for the absence of one gene, the gene that we've been studying, H-M-G-I-C, is resistant to the high fat diet. In other words, it stays at 25 grams. Therefore, the absence of H-M-G-I-C makes mice resistant to diet induced obesity." SUPER CAPTION: Kiran Chada, Department of Biochemistry, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey The gene in question, H-M-G-I-C, is said to enable the body to store fat. Professor Chada said the question of where the fat goes in the mice without the H-M-G-I-C gene remains a mystery. Chada says while the research on mice is now quite conclusive, it will be quite some time before people can buy an H-M-G-I-C gene inhibitor drug. He estimates it will take up to two years to identify candidates which could block or inhibit the H-M-G-I-C gene in humans - and only then will human trials start. If a promising drug is identified, it will take five to ten years of human tests to achieve the approval of the U-S Food and Drug Administration. But in the end, Chada cautions, there is no simple cure for obesity. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Obesity is a multi-factorial problem. So there's not going to be one magic cure. At the end of the day, I'm afraid that exercise and controlling one's diet will still play a intrinsically important role in controlling obesity."
