Each person is an amazingly diverse colony of organisms and we cannot live without the bacterial part of that community! Our systems are host to perhaps 100 times more bacterial cells than the number of our own innate cells and just the ones in our intestinal tracts weigh 3-4 pounds! More shockingly these thousands of types of microbes might have 1,000 times as much DNA helping control our system. For the full story, please read my book The Probiotic Cure.
