Looking for Clues About How Colorectal Cancer Develops

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

Our bodies are home to around 100 trillion microbes, mostly bacteria, inside and out. Within the human body, microbial genes outnumber human genes 100 to 1. This is the microbiome — and we couldn’t live without it. There are diverse, complex communities of microbes in the intestines, in the mouth, on the skin and elsewhere, living […]
