Summary Trillions and trillions of microbial cells live on and inside your body. A small number of these microbes are unhealthy germs. But most of these tiny tenants don't make you sick. They belong in your body and perform essential jobs. Microbes help digest your food, protect you from dangerous germs, and help your body fight disease.
