Gas X

From the BBC News – “The human gut holds microbes containing millions of genes, say scientists. In fact, there are more genes in the flora in the intestinal system than the rest of our bodies.”

According to Professor Jeroen Raes, “Basically, we are a walking bacterial colony.”

And, as some have posited, Homo erectus asphaltus may, in fact, have evolved simply to help gut gas find a bigger field of expression. “We have about 100 times more microbial genes than human genes in the body. We also have 10 times more bacterial cells in our body than human cells,” said the erudite professor Raes.

Flatulence or bust!
