Bacteria as Sybiotes

“Actually bacteria are our symbiotic partners in both health and disease. They serve a useful role.

“As scavengers, they make harmless or remove undesirable substances within our bodies. They also elaborate certain of our body needs.

“That is, they help build complex organic compounds from simple ingredients. A notable example of this is the production of vitamin B-12 in our intestines.”

– T. C. Fry
