Your Microbiome

About 100 trillion good bacteria live on or in your body.  Each person’s collection of microbes is called their microbiome.  And each person’s microbiome is different.  Bad bacteria often live peacefully among the good.

Half of your stool is not leftover food – it is microbial biomass which has reproduced in your stomach.  Scientists are still trying to locate the idiot savant who counted them.

    A wonderful topic. A terrific link. I have requested all of my bacteria to wear white or black hats so I can tell them apart.
