The Secret World Inside You
The Secret World Inside You explores the rapidly evolving science that is revealing the complexities of the human microbiome and reshaping our ideas about human health, offering new perspectives on common health problems including allergies, asthma, and obesity.
Your body's largest organ hosts a huge diversity of microorganisms that is constantly changing as it comes into contact with new microbes.
You get your DNA from both parents. But your microbiome is acquired from your mother on the way out of the womb.
Your stomach and intestines are home to countless microbes that help you digest food and perform other essential functions.
