Abstract

It is by now well-known that humans have more bacterial cells in the body than human cells. Bacteria live on the skin, in the nose and ears, and, most of all, in the gut. The gut is host to over 100 trillion bacteria from 500 different species of microbes, most of which are non-pathogenic and help to protect the body against disease and maintain well-being.
