Writing Exercise #1

The human Microbiome, genetic material of all the microbes that live on and inside the human body.

This week I have read over the introductory paper on the Human Microbiome which links individual’s microbiome to their wellbeing. I only have a few ideas of non-infectious diseases that are influenced by microorganisms. These were also pointed out as the top causes of death on Tuesday’s lecture.

Human non-infectious diseases that might be influenced by microbes:

  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular Diseases (heart disease, high blood pressure, etc.)
  • Allergies
  • Asthma or other Respiratory chronic conditions
