Saliva microbiota in Finnish children

The human intestinal microbiota may play a role in the development of overweight and obesity. However, associations between saliva microbiota and body mass index (BMI) have been sparsely studied, although the oral cavity is the major gateway for microbes into the body. The aim of this study was to identify associations between the saliva microbiota and BMI categories in Finnish children aged 9-14 years.
