This week I have read over the introductory paper on the Human Microbiome which links individual’s microbiome to their wellbeing. I only have a few ideas of non-infectious diseases that are influenced by microorganisms. These were also pointed out as the top causes of death on Tuesday’s lecture.
Human non-infectious diseases that might be influenced by microbes:
- Cardiovascular Diseases (heart disease, high blood pressure, etc.)
- Asthma or other Respiratory chronic conditions
