The Nature Explorers Chiricahua Part 4 of 12

submitted by: thenatureexplorers

Chiricahua is a "Sky Island" region that supports a variety of wildlife, some of which are more commonly thought of as denizens of subtropical habitats in Mexico or Central America. Even in February with snow and temperatures as low as -10°F we still found a cornucopia of nature, turkeys, woodpeckers, centipedes, pines, yuccas, agaves, and more.

Diet, microbiota, and microbial metabolites in colon cancer risk in rural Africans and African Americans

submitted by: sjokeefe
Background: Epidemiologic studies have suggested that most cases of sporadic colon cancer can be attributed to diet. The recognition that colonic microbiota have a major influence on colonic health suggests that they might mediate colonic carcinogenesis. Objective: To examine the hypothesis that the influence of diet on colon cancer risk is mediated by the microbiota through their metabolites, we measured differences in colonic microbes and their metabolites in African Americans with a...
