This short video is a great summary of the importance of the friendly bacteria that reside within all of us. We all have a unique and personal bacterial fingerprint; a unique microbiome, which is our own melting pot of friendly (and not so friendly) bacteria.
The video explains what the microbiome is, how it came about and how scientific knowledge of our interaction with our microbiome is emerging. This is a fascinating area of human biology and one which I believe is going to become a fundamental field of human healthcare in response to the increasing incidence of chronic conditions associated with inflammation.
Look out for a future blog post of fascinating facts and emerging science related to friendly bacteria and the incredible and numerous roles these passengers play in maintaining our health.
