10,000 germ species live in and on healthy people

They live on your skin, up your nose, in your gut — enough bacteria, fungi and other microbes that collected together could weigh, amazingly, a few pounds.

It turns out that nearly everybody harbors low levels of some harmful types of bacteria, pathogens that are known for causing specific infections. But when a person is healthy — like the 242 U.S. adults who volunteered to be tested for the project — those bugs simply quietly coexist with benign or helpful microbes, perhaps kept in check by them.

And like environmental ecosystems, your microbial makeup varies widely by body part. Your skin could be like a rainforest, your intestines teeming with different species like an ocean.

So where is my grant money for the housing and carrying of these natural ecosystems. 10k species, I think 1.8mil per year should cover it.

@Ray:   I agree.  If you want to eliminate something, just tell us Cajuns that it's good to eat and that they are out of season!  Problem solved.
