Ed Yong: The Philosophy of Bacteria

Ed Yong

Ed Yong explores the physical and philosophical implications of being host to billions of microbes. He reports the latest science showing how the bacteria we come into contact with can profoundly affect our lives – from the ability to digest different foodstuffs to our susceptibility to asthma, diabetes and even stress and anxiety. And, he asks whether he should be seen as a human, or a universe of bacteria in a “human shaped sack”?
