    Yes, the human body cannot function without bacteria.  In fact people have ten times more bacteria in their body than they do human cells.  We rely on bacteria to perform numerous functions in our body.  Perhaps the most important is digestion: if the bacteria powering a person’s digestive system begins to fail, the body can’t nourish itself or flush out toxins and becomes fertile ground for further disease and disorder.  Most often the first sign that a person is moving towards death is decline in the digestive system.

    Absolutely!  There are more than ten times the amount of bacteria in your body than human cells according to Carolyn Bohach, a microbiologist at the University of Idaho.  Bacteria helps to keep our digestive healthy as well as getting nutrients and energy from food.  It can even help fight away disease-causing bacteria.

    Yes! Microorganisms perform vital functions within the human body. My biology professor at UC Davis strongly recommended that people who have taken antibiotics for whatever reason should eat yogurt other probiotic foods to restore the body’s natural balance. If you kill of certain bacteria in your digestive system, you may wind up with a lot of very unpleasant side-effects.
