Sebastian  Jutzi - The Inhabited Human


Small beings, large effects

Some 100 trillion microorganisms live on and in each of us – and this is a good thing. Without bacteria, fungi, and viruses, the human body could not survive. They protect us against diseases, train the immune system, and support digestion. But these tiny helpers can even do much more: they influence our psyche, create our body aroma, and in effect make us what we actually are.

•Fascinating, entertaining, and well worth knowing – an absorbing journey of discovery to the smallest beings we are inhabited by

•From the scalp to the gut – exciting findings and fascinating stories of research

•With many astounding tips and facts: How do microbes strengthen our immune system? What helps against bad breath? How can the gastro-intestinal tract stay healthy?
