Emelie Viennois from the Institute of Biomedical Sciences at Georgia State University, a lead author of the research, showed in her earlier work that these chemicals changed good bacteria in the guts of mice. In this study, the researcher found that animals who consumed emulsifiers had changes in their gut microbiomes that were associated with promoting tumor growth.

Emelie Viennois advises: “I would tell people to try to cook instead of using food industry products. In meals, mix processed foods with some homemade food so you don’t have huge exposure to emulsifiers in one meal.”
