A non-infectious disease that could potentially be influenced by microbials is cancer. Cancer is a tricky disease especially since there are many different types, location in the body and gene mutations that cause the disease in an individual. Microbes may influence those mutations and affect how cell’s respond and edit those mutations when copying DNA. This could also be the case in cardiovascular, kidney, digestive and neural diseases. Microbes could be the cause of the body’s inability to process material properly. This could involve processing toxic material out of the body, absorbing proper nutrients or even making conscious, reasonable decisions mentally. Microbes, although tiny, have the potential of doing damage and throwing off the body’s natural tendency to remain in homeostasis.
