With helpful bacteria to a healthy body
The human body is one of the most densely populated places on earth. And nowhere else in the body more microbes are found than in our intestine. Only recently scientists discovered that helping digestion is one of the easiest duties for bacteria to fulfil. But in our growingly hygienic world variety and quantity of bacteria, our invisible helpers, are dwindling. The result: overweight, depression, allergies and other autoimmune diseases.
Using advanced methods scientists are in the process of raising the curtain on a performance that is not so much about sickness, but more about health, cooperation and the division of labour. Bernhard Kegels describes knowledgeably and visibly how living together of human being and microbe is working, which other bacterial hot spots there are in our body and how we can use the new knowledge for our health.
