Have a great International Workers’ Day! Today, in this Digest: a review article about the role of butyrate (a product of microbiome activity) in the early development of microbiota. We have also: probiotics and COVID19, microbiota toxins and cardiovascular disease, microbiome studies from Indonesia, a US cohort study investigating links between the microbiome, diet, and TMAO levels; several articles about connections between the diet and the microbiome, shrimp microbiota, and more!
