Gut Microbiome Affected by Toxic Chemicals in Products, Environment, Food

The microbes that inhabit our bodies are influenced by what we eat, drink, breathe and absorb through our skin, and most of us are chronically exposed to natural and human-made environmental contaminants.  In this study, scientists reviewed the research linking dozens of chemicals present in our personal care products, home care products, general environment and our food to changes in the gut microbiome and associated health challenges.

Tooth Decay Linked to Toxic Chemical PFAS: New Study
