    Your body is also made up of healthy  micro organisms . they are not harmful. Bacteria is harmful

    Your body needs bacteria to survive. It is considered "healthy bacteria". Viruses are foreign to the body which your body fights with anti-bodies.

    It probably depends upon what culture you live in.  There are many where sanitation is not nearly as good as other areas, thus we can guess that there would be more microbes in and on those people...

    My body is mostly an organic hodgepodge of strange weirdness held loosely together in a bag of skin. That it functions somewhat normally is quite odd. However there are the rare red areas indicating a brooding war going on there and other calamities from time to time reminding me that somethings maybe trying to take it all away and kick me out completely.

    I don't know the percentage but I saw somewhere that bacteria have a greater percentage than any other cell
