    False. It's not 10% "you" VS 90% microbiome. It's like 40% "you" and 60% microbiome.

  • Winnie Ma
    Winnie Ma Year ago +2

    The issue with saying it's 10 to 100 trillion is
    1. It's actually 9.09 percent, but I mean who cares the numbers aren't exactly 10 and 100 but more importantly,
    2. By saying that the body is 10 percent cell and 90 percent microorganisms, that's like saying the place humans live is .0000001 percent earth and 99.9999999 percent humans. This is wrong because earth is much bigger than one human. So, although it isn't for every microorganism, bacteria cells are only about a tenth of the size of an animal cell, so it's more half and half really. Again, there could be exceptions, but bacteria cells are smaller, therefore accounting for less of your mass and volume

    The bacteria to cell ratio is not 10/1 as debunked in the book "I contain multitudes" It's actually around 39/30. You gotta fact check your stuff. That 10/1 ratio was made from sloppy science and then for some reason hailed as fact because it was eyecatching.

    It should be noted that even though your microbiome has 10 times the number of cells than the rest of you, your red blood cells(the smallest type) are are 8 times the size and your bone marrow cells(the largest) are around 30,000 times the size. So no matter how many microbes you have they only make up about 2-6 pounds of "you".

    • chronozon937

      Here, have a graph, the average bacteria floats around 1-2 nanometers.
