Human body is a planet for microorganisms; they survive in million numbers and die every second in the same ratio. They reside on the upper layer of the skin as well as inside the body in different parts such as saliva, conjunctiva, and oral mucosa and majorly in the gastro-intestinal tracts. Micro animals are not considered to benefit from human body. However do you know how many and what sorts of microorganisms live on the human body? Let’s find out:

  • Bacteria
  • Fungi
  • Achaea

Researchers study

  • Firstly, experts indicated that the number of human cells present in the body is less than the bacteria numbers. They count in a ratio like 1:10.
  • Secondly, these clusters of microorganisms are useful for fighting back with some highly fatal diseases.
  • Thirdly, millions of bacteria and fungi microorganisms cover the human body’s skin, mouth and the intestinal parts which are good for the human survival and do not harm ever. Moreover, they fight from harmful microbes in order to protect the human cells and organs.

So if you are wondering as to how many and what sorts of microorganisms live on the human body, find it out here:

  • Foot fungus– this is widely known as athlete’s foot. This is a kind of parasitic microbes that make a web on the bare foot in different sections. They creep over under the nails of the toe and could reach to the other close by area of the foot skin. Primarily you experience ringworm and jock itch problem. This is all done by the foot fungus which maximizes in number and lives on the human body, but eventually they are harmful and one should get rid of them as often as possible.
  • Vagina flora– this is the kind of a beneficial microorganism that prevents harmful bacteria to enter the vagina lining and cause deadly infections. They secrete a lactic acid formula which threatens the hostile invaders such as Candida albicans.
  • Bacteroides and firmicutes– these are at least 500 species in number which weighs around 3.3 pounds. This kind of bacteria specie lives inside the gut of the human body.  They are responsible for breaking down the carbohydrates and convert them in to the essential vitamin like B12 and K. However, they are very much responsible for eliminating the harmful bacteria form the human body.
  • Lice (pediculus humanus capitis)- they have been known since many centuries for living on the human head. They generally make the scalp and hair strands their home and do not leave until someone takes them out by using fingers or a specially designed comb. They are one to two millimeters long and suck the human blood which eventually results into the loss of memory causing various deficiencies.
  • Demodex mites– these are 0.3 millimeter long arthropods which lives in the follicles of the human eyelashes. They eat, mate and breed also on the lashes and occasionally visit the face skin while you are asleep. They do not leave your skin easily. The stumpy cigar shaped parasites are present in 20% amount on the human body. They usually affect the elderly people than adults. So take care of your facial skin and eyelashes before it is too late.
  • Varicella zoster– they stay inside the human body forever if you are have ever been infected by the chicken pox. They live freely in a dormant state in the nerves as well as the spinal cord. When a person is in stress, has week immunity system or falling into ageing level in life, then this kind of virus may activate again. They are popularly known as shingles. Thus, microorganisms are unlimited in our planet and 40% attack and live on the human body each day.
