Integrating science, history, and personal experience, Biklé will share insights and discoveries about microbiomes, the communities of bacteria and other microbes that are part of the green bodies of plants as well as our own and our animals.  The soils in which we grow our crops and the mammalian gut have more in common than meets the eye.  Though different in composition, soil and gut microbiomes carry on a form of biological intelligence with their hosts that profoundly influence the health and well-being of crops, livestock, and people.  And whether human or ruminant, what we feed these respective microbiomes, it turns out, determines whether or not they and their host can properly function.  This means it’s time to re-examine how we produce food and practice medicine.
