Let Them Eat Dirt: The Hunt for Our Kids’ Missing MIcrobes
March 15 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Allergies, obesity, asthma, diabetes, auto-immune and intestinal disorders are all on the rise. New research points to changes in the ecosystem of microbes that live on and inside every one of us — our microbiomes — as a major cause. The film explores the role microbes play in the development, physical and mental health of our children, and argues that good health may begin with kids playing in the dirt.
Q&A discussion after the film with local experts.
