From the Ted Talk by Giulia Enders: The surprisingly charming science of your gut

Unscramble the Blue Letters

It turns out, real cleanliness is not about killing off bacteria right away. Real cleanliness is a bit different. When we look at the ftacs, 95 prnceet of all bacteria on this planet don't harm us — they can't, they don't have the genes to do so. Many, actually, help us a lot, and scientists at the meomnt are looking into things like: Do some bertacia help us clean the gut? Do they help us digest? Do they make us put on weight or have a lean figure although we're eating lots? Are others making us feel more courageous or even more riseeinlt to stress? So you see, there are more questions when it comes to cleanliness. And, actually, the thing is, it's about a heatlhy balance, I think. You can't aoivd the bad all the time. This is simply not possible; there's always something bad around. So what really the whole deal is when you look at a clean gut, it's about having good bacteria, enough of them, and then some bad. Our imnmue system needs the bad, too, so it knows what it's looking out for.

Original Text

It turns out, real cleanliness is not about killing off bacteria right away. Real cleanliness is a bit different. When we look at the facts, 95 percent of all bacteria on this planet don't harm us — they can't, they don't have the genes to do so. Many, actually, help us a lot, and scientists at the moment are looking into things like: Do some bacteria help us clean the gut? Do they help us digest? Do they make us put on weight or have a lean figure although we're eating lots? Are others making us feel more courageous or even more resilient to stress? So you see, there are more questions when it comes to cleanliness. And, actually, the thing is, it's about a healthy balance, I think. You can't avoid the bad all the time. This is simply not possible; there's always something bad around. So what really the whole deal is when you look at a clean gut, it's about having good bacteria, enough of them, and then some bad. Our immune system needs the bad, too, so it knows what it's looking out for.
