  • Learn the secret to a truly healthy body and mind: the teeming world of microbes inside and all around us

    Science has made huge leaps in prolonging life through disease prevention and treatment, but biochemist Brett Finlay and gerontology expert Jessica Finlay offer a different—and truly revolutionary—solution to the quest for the fountain of youth. Through their research into the human microbiome, they’ve discovered that microbes play a crucial role in how we age. In The Whole-Body Microbiome, this father-daughter pair:
    • Explores the unique composition of all the microbiomes in the human body (not just in the gut!), and explains the health risks and benefits associated with each
    • Presents current and emerging research on microbial interventions for the full spectrum of age-related conditions, from sun spots to Alzheimer’s, cancer, and more
    • Provides simple, at-home tips to improve your microbiotic health, at any age.

    In this eye-opening update on the significance of the microbiome, the Finlays advance what might be the scientific breakthrough of our age—and explain why “dirty” might be the new clean.
  • B. Brett Finlay, PhD, is professor of microbiology at the University of British Columbia and a world leader in how bacterial infections work. He has been studying microbes for over 30 years and has published over 450 articles. A founder of the biotech companies Inimex, Vedanta, and Microbiome Insights, Brett is Officer of the Order of Canada, the highest Canadian civilian recognition. He lives in Vancouver, BC, with his wife, a pediatrician, and they have two adult children, including his co-author, Jessica.

    Jessica Finlay, PhD, specializes in geographical and environmental gerontology, a field she is pursuing at the University of Minnesota. With degrees from Queen’s University and the University of Minnesota in geography, education, and environment and society, she has won awards and fellowships for her work, most recently the President’s Student Leadership and Service Award for collaborations with the City of Minneapolis Department of Health and Neighborhood Health Source organization. Her primary professional goals are to help diverse people attain a higher quality of life through community-engaged research, and advance strategies for healthy and inclusive lifelong communities.
