Remco Kort - Professor Microbiology and Planetary Health Advocate
In this fourth episode of Planetary Health Talks we talk with Remco Kort, professor microbiology and planetary health advocate at the VU in Amsterdam. We talk about the relationship between humans and bacteria, vaginal health, about Micropia and exposing microbes to the public. Remco explains how everything has evolved in a planet full of microbes and in order to be successful we need to work together with these micro-organisms. Microbes form a layer of defence in humans, animals and plants. Remco also explains the long-term effects of the lack of exposure to microbes and the link between microbes and chronic disease. How can we ‘use’ planetary health to find common ground, so we can act together?
