Diet and food choice play a crucial role in 'feeding' our microbiome- and the trillions of micro-organisms that make up this complex system. To raise awareness of this crucial topic, this year's World Microbiome Day, which takes place once again on June 27th, and is organised by APC Microbiome Ireland and the European Food Information Council (EUFIC), will focus on celebrating the microbiome's remarkable role in our lives.
