“What lives in your Belly Button!?”

“Eeeeeeeewwwww!” thats how I reacted when I read the above headline in the National Geographic’s news.Apparently, our belly button has an ‘amazon’ of species living(they found more than 2000 types of bacterial species)……an ecosystem!(yeah I rolled my eyes too..and all this info..I got from this article)…..so much for all those soaps and scrubs we use everyday………(still rolling my eyes)….I know most of  the readers of this blog or the ones who have already read the news on national geographic website would know which part to scrub next morning in shower;)……………… Jokes apart its an interesting research undertaken by scientists to understand the relation between these microbes living on our bodies and our health:)

here is the link to the news articles:
