A fascinating examination of the three pounds of bacteria living in a typical human being.

We are a society obsessed with cleanliness -- but is this a healthy obsession? Do we use antibacterial products correctly? Should my child wash her hands after playing in the park? Why does my doctor insist that I finish the bottle of antibiotics even though I feel better? What is Lactobacillus? And superbugs?

The human body plays host to trillions of bugs -- living microorganisms too tiny to see -- including our own personal, unique set of bacteria. We're only just beginning to understand the important role these bacteria play in human health.

Advertisers insist that bacteria are bad. Are they? Meet Your Bacteria has the answers.
