Turns out you are mostly bacteria

Fascinating article about the role of bacteria in the human body.

I remember reading about how the absense of certain bacteria in the body is associated with allergies. Apparently, the reactions of bacteria to the environment clue the body in that the immune system does not need to react to a substance.

I've also blogged before about how fermented foods are actually good for the health of your bacteria.
