We're Only 10% Human!

Are we fully human or hybrids? Does this have something to do with our bodies' internal vibration?

Scientists are beginning a large-scale effort to identify and analyze the vast majority of cells in or on your body that aren't of human origin. It turns out that only about 10% of the trillions of cells that make up a person are truly human (the other 90% per cent are bacteria, viruses and other microbes that live mostly in your intestines and on your skin).

In the Winnipeg Press, Robert S. Boyd quotes microbiologist Brett Finlay as saying, "We really are a superorganism. From the moment we are born until we die, we live in a symbiotic relationship with our microbes."
