Polio, Legionnaires’, and Leptin

September 10, 2015

On this podcast, we discuss current events in science, including recent outbreaks of polio in the Ukraine and Legionnaire’s disease in California and Illinois. We also cover recent research linking high-fat diets with a change in the gut microbiome and obesity-linked inflammation, as well as the role that leptin plays in the rewarding effects of exercise. Tune in to hear our discussion on the release of an open-access journal that will publish ideas as well as data and results, and other exciting research on influenza infection.

Keywords: polio, Legionnaire’s disease, outbreaks, virus, bacteria, saturated fats, obesity, microbiome, mice, inflammation, leptin, neurons, brain, exercise, neutrophils, T cells, infection, lungs, influenza, open-access, journal, the wall of polio, science, podcast, virology, immunology
