The Ecosystem Inside: Your Body and its Tiny Citizens - Cardiff University Series

Hay Festival 2016, 

Most people think they are human; this is only partly correct. You have within you more cells that are not human than those that are: from bacteria that help you digest your food, to fungi that help keep your skin healthy and mites that live in your eyebrows. You are in fact a whole world. What are the latest ideas on how interactions between you and your tiny citizens affect your health? How do bacteria affect allergies? Is there any point in eating live yogurt? Cuff is based at the Institute of Molecular and Experimental Medicine.
