Less than 1 percent of the genes in your body are even mammalian

Comment by Dr. Grimes in a Video June 2011

  • 10% of the cells in our body are human = 10 trillion
  • 90% of the cells in our body are microbial = 90 trillion
  • 25,000 human genes
  • 1,300,000 genes just in our intestine
    There are far more genes in our body which might be influenced by vitamin D than we have been aware of.

Apparently there has been no investigation of bacteria genes and vitamin D bioavailability

Even though non-human genes make up 99% of the genes in the human body

Another way to state it. The human body probably shares less than 1% of the genes with a banana

Observation: Inuits have greatly reduced uptake of vitamin D from foods - some of their local food has toxic level of vitamin D

Wonder if that reduced intake is due to changes in human genes or bacterial genes
