Bacteria in the human body, particularly those found in the gut, play a vital role in training and modulating the immune system. Exposure to diverse microbial communities early in life helps educate the immune system, teaching it to distinguish between harmless substances and potential threats. This education is essential for preventing autoimmune diseases and allergies later in life. Disruptions to the gut microbiota, such as through antibiotic use or a lack of microbial diversity, have been linked to an increased risk of immune-related disorders.
