Summary:Presents the human body as a complex ecosystem of bacteria, then examines each portion of the body, which bacteria live there, and why. The three major bacterial groups, sphere-shaped cocci, rods, and helical spirochetes and spirilla, are examined. Their behavior when interacting with the body is explored. A discussion of factors that encourage bacterial growth leads to specific information on which bacteria cause certain conditions, and how infection can be avoided.
