“Biologists estimate that 380 trillion viruses are living on and inside your body right now — 10 times the number of bacteria . . . Scientists’ rapidly expanding knowledge makes it clear that we are not made up primarily of “human” cells that are occasionally invaded by microbes; our body is really a superorganism of cohabitating cells, bacteria, fungi and most numerous of all: viruses. The latest counts indicate that as much as half of all the biological matter in your body is not human.” *-(👽)-*
