You may not realize it, but your body is home to a lot of microbes — way more than you might think. In healthy humans, “microbial cells outnumber human cells by about ten to one,” according to the Human Microbiome Project of the National Institutes of Health. Most of them, called gut flora, live in your digestive system, especially in the colon. Others live in distinct communities in and on your body, in different types of environments — hot or cold, moist or dry.
