The human gut #microbiome never ceases to amaze me. Now a discovery of a bacterium that coverts Type A or B blood to type O, with big implications for blood transfusion.

Our gut #microbiome is a treasure for discovery. More coming out on this later this week that is mind-blowing.
BTW, another example of a striking finding that has not garnered coverage by any media. Surprising, in light of the public's interest in science.
Just like yesterday with the report of the 1st drug to delay autoimmune #diabetes
Who covered these?
NYTimes @nytimescience No
WashPost @PostHealthSci No
LA Times @latimesscience No
WSJ @WSJscience No
USA Today @USATODAYhealth No
And I could go on....
The next chapter on what's lurking in our #microbiome for discovery: a bacterium that blocks the primary drug for #Parkinson's

(potentially having an effect in ~10 million people)
