Your Body's Wilderness

"Wilderness" is not just an administratively designated roadless piece of country, it is also in your belly button.

"Each person's microbial jungle is so rich, colorful, and dynamic that in all likelihood your body hosts species that no scientist has ever studied."

(Via Breda, who is not amused.)
