About this book

Meet Your Bacteria introduces you to all of your tiny tenants, and reveals the fascinating inner workings of your body, and the importance of these usually helpful (but sometimes harmful) microbes.

Highly topical and accessible, Meet Your Bacteria:
- Explores the different bacteria that live on and in various parts of your body (not just in the gut)
- Explains what they do, and why some are beneficial and some harmful
- Offers practical advice for promoting the good and inhibiting the bad bacteria
- Examines the latest thinking on good and bad dirt, and the links between bacteria and disease

Including in-depth profiles on each of the most important families of bacteria living in the human body, and helpful advice on how you can look after your own health through greater knowledge of your microbial friends, this is a wide-ranging introduction to the secret world inside your own body.
