Human oral microbiome

* I was wondering if testing same group of athletes participating in 2 different sports could not be confounded with seasonal effects of maybe different study loads during the different year. But no access to the paper, so can not see details. Elevated salivary IgA, decreased anxiety, and an altered oral microbiota are associated with active participation on an undergraduate athletic team – Ashley L.
