Revised estimates for the number of human and bacteria cells in the body

After a new analysis, these researchers concluded that the ratio of bacteria cells to human cells is closer to 1:1 versus the commonly cited 10:1.


An interesting fact from the researchers, the amount is close enough that there’s potentially more human cells than bacteria cells in and on your body after you take a dump.
