The human body teems with so many microbes that they outnumber our own cells ten to one. Vast schools of bacteria are in us and around us, like fish nuzzling a coral reef. “They are not simply along for the ride,” says Stanford University microbiologist David Relman. “They are interacting with us.”
Another reason to not use so many antibiotics. I wonder if the high diabetes incidence in Kuwait is at all related to this. I am certain that antibiotics are too available and too over-prescribed.
