The mouth may be responsible for over 80% of all the disease processes that affect our body and mind.

The MICROBIOME —- The collective title of the bacteria, fungi, and viruses that live in and on us all.

We are made of approximately 10 trillion cells. However we also host 100 trillion [YES ONE HUNDRED TRILLION] microbes.
The question is – who hosts who?
