Even further, there are ten times more bacterial cells on and in you than your personal cells. While we each have from 10 trillion to 100 trillion (yes, science is guessing) cells, that means we could have up to a quadrillion bacterial organisms with each of us. Let's see now, if it is true that there are ten times more viruses than bacteria, the mind boggles. Here is a photo of the Pelagibacter unique to the left.
Remember, the medical profession once thought ulcers were caused by stress and what you ate. People drank milk to ameliorate the effect. Now, we learn it is a bacterium, Helicobacter pylori, that causes ulcers. Simple solution: an antibiotic.
Well, the very latest medical news is that high blood pressure is probably caused by your gut bacteria through an enzyme called renin (left). Some people have the right mix of microorganisms that their biosystem creates more propionic acid (PA--right). Renin raises the pressure, PA lowers it. All this is not controlled by your brain but your kidney. How interesting. Do you see future pills of propionic acid? Or, better yet, a natural biocure. Your blood test will now be complemented with a bio-test. You will be fed the right bacteria, and the cheapest way, hate to say, is through cultured feces.
