    • Microbes or micro-organisms are tiny living things that you can only see using a microscope. They are all around us and include viruses, bacteria and fungi.

      Your digestive system has its very own community of microbes – its microbiome. This microbiome helps you digest your food, rid yourself of disease-causing pathogens and stay healthy.

      Learn how to increase the number of good microbes in your body and get rid of any nasty pathogens by downloading Gutsy The Card Game from the American Museum of Natural History.

      The first player to collect six kinds of microbes is the winner!

      For more micro-organism fun read mean microbes and try defending your body against bacteria and viruses.
