Of this group, the researchers chose 495 participants, who in three years there were disturbances in thinking and memory problems. In the second group there were 587 people who did not detect any health problems. It has been found that the group forgetful 6% had blood group AB.

Microbes of human body
Microbes of human body – The first results of the Project on Human microbiome (Human Microbiome Project – HMP) are amazing. The genome of microbes more than 8 million protein-coding genes. In the human and just 22,000. In human bodies inhabited by about 10,000 species of bacteria. Each person „carries a„ approx. A thousand species. It is not known until the end of what’s going on in these differences between individual „loads” of microbes, but it seems that the more species we have in ourselves, that we are healthier.
