Colon Cancer’s Newest Culprit: Gut Bacteria

Since research on this invisible world of microorganisms that live within us — called the microbiome — emerged over the past decade, scientists have known that patients with colon cancer harbor different microbial communities in their digestive tract than those without the disease.
