But what are germs anyway?
It is difficult to imagine that our bodies have ten to a hundred times more bacteria than human cells. Most of them, the equivalent of two kilograms, live in a shelter in the large intestine, the colon, where billions of billions of bacteria make up the intestinal microflora that today is called “intestinal microbiota”. It is a true extrahuman organ of great complexity, neglected for a long time, but nonetheless controlling our health. Scientific data accumulates every week to prove the involvement of gut bacteria in the majority of emerging chronic diseases. Developments that form the basis of preventive medicine: the medicine of tomorrow.
