A person is first exposed to microorganisms as an infant, and later on, environmental exposures and diet can change one’s microbiome to be either beneficial to health or place one at greater risk for disease. New research demonstrates that changes to our gut microbiome can be linked to Alzheimer’s-like behavior.
