Your very own constant companion: Your microbiome

The human microbiome is the epitome of 'Numquam solus vades' - you'll never walk alone.

Your very own constant companion: Your microbiome

One study notes that it takes less than 24 hours for a hotel guest to colonize a room with their personal microbes, erasing all traces of previous guests and making the space microbially identical to their home!

"Hotel rooms aren’t yucky – you colonize them with your own personal bacteria within hours." - this article of The Washington Post aggregates fascinating findings on how your family's microbiome (or your eco-system of inner and outer bacteria) lays claim to hotel rooms within hours, how unique and persistent our bacterial signatures are and furthermore how exposure to a better bacterial eco-system during childhood could set us up for happier, healthier lives.
