US Study: Human Gut Bacteria Can Generate Electricity
New research from the University of California, Berkeley, discovered that hundreds of different human gut bacteria are electrogenic (they can generate electricity).
These types of bacteria include Listeria monocytogenes (causing of diarrhea), Clostridium perfringens (causing gangrene), and Enterococcus faecalis (acquired during hospital stays), as well as benign bacteria in the gut such as probiotics. The researchers observe, while others, such as the Lactobacilli strains, play a role in fermentation.
Prof. Dan Portnoy explains: “The fact that so many bugs that interact with humans, either as pathogens or in probiotics or in our microbiota or involved in the fermentation of human products, are electrogenic — that had been missed before.”
