Bacteria Helps You Stay Healthy

Dr. Mercola had a great article today about the microflora in your gut. In the article he says that:

Probiotics, along with a host of other microorganisms, are so crucial to your health that researchers have compared them to “a newly recognized organ.”

To give you an idea of how much microflora you have, your body contains about 100 trillion cells. They say that only 1 in 10 is a human cell. The rest are bacteria and microorganisms.

I think it is fairly common knowledge by now that without the bacteria in your digestive tract you wouldn’t be able to digest food properly.
