The Invisible Universe Of The Human Microbiome
\\I'm time you look in the mirror think about this in many ways you're more microbe than human there are 10 times more cells from my core organisms bacteria viruses fungi then human cells in and on our bodies our genes are outnumbered 100 to one by microbial genes scientists even have a name for all these microbial genes the human microbiome nter in during now this might make a lot of people rush for the hand sanitizer but it turns out most of these micro organisms aren't bad germs that will make you sick most are good and without these good microbes our bodies don't seem to do as well we don't seem to be as healthy and we actually might get sick more often uhhuh so one question is where do our microbiome come from in the first place well like a lot of things he starts with our mothers as the infant passes through the birth canal it gets coated with microbes from the mom these microbes they kind of see the baby with just the right mix combined with bacteria breastmilk another Michael between character early on they seem to slowly take shape in our first 2 years of life the overall mix of our microbes to close very personal sort of like a fingerprint or maybe a blood type what are my copes tend to resemble those of our parents and siblings and may stay with us for much of our lives I uhhuh they may also be doing all sorts of things such as educating our immune cells like this one teaching them the difference watching things he should fight off bad stuff that might make a 6 something different to threaten like our good microbes uhhuh ntelos my clothes for come our first line of defense fighting off germs that try to invade our bodies protecting their turf while protecting our help scientists have discovered they can even spew out their own about X. the types of microbes in your body very depending on the exact he where they live the nature they're wet places like our malval's noses and armpits boy do places like our scalps and backs and dry places like our forums different species of microbes have adapted to each of these habitats the biggest most important microbial habitat seems to be in the gut it's the most complex the most diverse and everything microbes are doing everywhere else in our bodies fighting off infections revving up and getting down on meat systems signaling cells that's all happening in that got in space they even seem to help regulate our metabolisms how much energy we burn and how much fat we store so if it's not functioning properly for some reason because of what we eat antibiotics we take that may actually lead to all kinds of diseases diseases like colon cancer colitis maybe even diabetes and obesity some scientists think one reason a lot of diseases are increasing is because through frost's key gut microbes Carmichael biomes looked far less diverse compared to those of people in less developed countries and earlier generations and remember how we get a microbiologist the first place from our mothers were born in from breast milk well some scientists think that too many babies aren't getting that because of all the C. sections and not enough breast feeding plus all the antibiotics kids get these days and our obsession with cleanliness all this may help explain why problems like asthma and allergies have been soaring maybe because our microbiome is never cut our immune systems how to work the right way NBI swallowing could microbes problematic could prevent and treat some diseases so could taking pre products essentially food that could microbes love n't NBI and our story with a reminder this research is really new we still have a lot to learn about what many of our microbes are really doing but scientists say that it's getting clearer and clearer all over are essential to our health happiness I I ... //
