Dr. Joseph Murray takes the adage “You are what you to eat” to a whole new level — a lower level. As a gastroenterologist at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Murray studies “anything that ails you from your mouth to the Star Tribune newspaper logoother end.” In addition to being an expert in Celiac disease and swallowing disorders, he has a “keen interest in what we feed ourselves and the bugs inside us.” We talked to Murray about the increasing interest in the gut, good bugs vs. bad bugs, food vs. supplements, the possible dangers of elimination diets and how “brugs” may be the next frontier in treating autoimmune diseases.’

Reach: The Star Tribune Sunday circulation is 518,745 copies and weekday circulation is 300,277. The Star Tribune is the state’s largest newspaper and ranks 16th nationally in circulation.

Context: Joseph Murray, M.D, is a Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist and hepatologist. Dr. Murray's research is in two distinct areas:  celiac disease or gluten sensitivity and enteropathy; and esophageal disorders.
