Fascinating and disgusting in equal measures. Each one of us is a walking ecosystem teeming with a wide variety of life forms in their trillions.
Now, using new camera technology, these creatures can be revealed: Microscopic organisms that ooze from the pores on our face, worms that are now being purposefully inserted into our intestines, and microbes that can even change the way that we behave.
From cancer to allergies, depression to flesh eating diseases these creatures could influence us in ways we are only now beginning to understand. We are not simply human, we are a unique and diverse collection of life forms.
This is the untold story of Life on us.
