The link in the tweet is to this paper.
Nutrimetabonomics: Applications for Nutritional Sciences, with Specific Reference to Gut Microbial Interactions – Annual Review of Food Science and Technology, 4(1):
Wow. Nutrimetabonomics. In a paper. And amazingly they had a conference on this too. 11th-13th April 2012- First Nutrimetabonomics Workshop to consider … I do not even know what to say.
