On this episode - we discuss how certain metabolites produced in the gut are associated with cardiovascular disease.  Your gut microbiome is made up of trillions of microorganisms, including at least 1000 different species of known bacteria with more than 3 MILLION genes! (150 x more than humans!) Could what we eat change the diversity and species of bacteria that reside in our gut? Could this change our risk for cardiovascular disease?  And what IS TMAO? It is one piece of a massive, complicated puzzle. We have barely scratched the surface as to what is yet to come in gut microbiome research, but the work from Dr. Tang, and Dr. Hazen, and their colleagues at Cleveland Clinic is a fascinating beginning. About Dr. Tang W. H. Wilson Tang, MD, is Director of Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Clinical Genomics; Research Director, and staff cardiologist in the Section of Heart Failure and Cardiac Transplantation Medicine in the Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute at the Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Tang is Professor of Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University.
