All organisms (bacteria, viruses, and fungi) that live in or on our body compose our microbiome. We each carry approximately 100 trillion microbes.  They reflect lifestyle, diet, hygiene, medications, emotions and other health issues.  A top health research priority, microbiome-based therapies, including those based on diet and lifestyle modifications, show great promise for future health breakthroughs.
