"Gut: The Inside Story of Our Body's Most Underrated Organ", an exhibition presented at the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie (Paris)
From December 2018 to July 2019, the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie in Paris will present a 600-square-meter exhibition designed to explain the role of the gut and the gut microbiota (also known as the intestinal flora) to the general public in a cheeky and fun way.

Because of its educational aspects and broad accessibility, the Roquette Foundation for Health supports this exhibition concerning the intestine, a frequently unfamiliar organ. In a simple, fun way, the exhibition explains to visitors the role of the intestine and the intestinal microbiota with respect to individual health.

In just one decade, science has discovered the incredible powers of the microbiota, a collection of bacteria, fungi and viruses that are found in the digestive system, opening the way to a new type of medicine.

This exhibition was created in collaboration with the Enders sisters: Giulia, a medical student, and Jill, an illustrator. They are the authors of "Gut: The Inside Story of Our Body’s Most Underrated Organ," a best-seller in more than 39 countries. Visitors will plunge deep into the world of the gut and can learn tips to apply daily to keep their microbiota healthy and improve their food habits.
