What’s in the Human Microbiome


Since I write about the human microbiome, I found this information on what’s been discovered – so far – about its interactions with the rest of the body quite fascinating and think you will too. The information is mostly from an article charmingly entitled Friends with social benefits – subtitled Host-microbe interactions as a driver of brain evolution and development?  (Stilling et al, 2014)

Our long evolutionary history has resulted in the modern human body’s being  home to trillions of colonizing microbes.
