The Gut: Our Second Brain

For years, scientists have known about the existence of another brain within our bodies. Our stomach functions totally independently and does far more than just digestion. It reigns over a spectacular colony of one hundred thousand billion bacteria that have a strong impact on our personalities. Some diseases of the brain, like Parkinson’s, could stem from the degeneration of intestinal neurons.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mmm It’s difficult to rate this program because scientifically speaking I liked it but I think is disturbing the way people appear without clothes.
