The Human Terrain

Your body hosts whole colonies of microorganisms, and scientists are exploring
the beneficial roles many of them play in human health.

By Claire Sykes

June 2009

Your body teems with a world of microorganisms. Trillions of bacteria, viruses and fungi munch away at your skin, crank out enzymes in your mouth and breed like crazy—all while you eat, work and play. The thought of all these critters might be a little discomforting. For the most part, though, you wouldn’t be alive without them.

Though microorganisms have been wriggling under scientists’ microscopes for centuries, little is known about how they affect human health. However, recent technological advancements now allow scientists to explore how colonies of microbes interact with the human body in something called the Human Microbiome Project (HMP).

Launched in 2007 as part of the National Institutes of Health’s Roadmap for Medical Research, this five-year, $100 million project involves dozens of scientists around the country. It’s also part of the International Human Microbiome Consortium (IHMC), which involves experts from Australia, Canada, Europe, China, Japan and Korea.

In 2002, American Nobel Prize-winning molecular biologist Joshua Lederberg came up with the term microbiome, defined as the totality of genomes—made up of DNA, the molecule that encodes genetic information—of all the microorganisms in any given environment, from a spot of saliva to a soil sample. Your body carries ten times as many microbial cells as human ones, which represents a hundred times the number of genes.

Home Sweet Homes

Most of this vast, though individually tiny, swarm lives in the gastrointestinal tract. “The second most populated area is the mouth, because bacteria are introduced by food coming into the body and through contact with our hands and other surfaces,” says Joe Petrosino, PhD, an assistant professor in the molecular virology and microbiology department at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

Flex Your Immunity's Muscles

Keeping the friendly microbes in your body happy and healthy is a good first step to keeping your immune system in fighting trim. But in a world awash in fears about the next big epidemic—swine flu? bird flu?—it helps to know what other natural weapons are out there for stocking an immunity arsenal.

Though not as famous as the oil pressed from the tree’s fruit, olive leaf has been equally prized throughout the centuries for its fever-fighting abilities. Today we know that olive leaf acts against a number of harmful microbes, including cold and flu viruses.

Long valued in Ayurveda, India’s traditional healing system, andrographis (A. paniculata) has been found to boost the production of the immune system’s white blood cells. It also promotes the release of interferons, substances that help keep viruses from multiplying.
