Can Live Bacteria reduce Candida infections? Peter Cartwright MSc MA
At least one-third of healthy individuals carry the Candida fungus; in the mouth, the intestine or the vagina.
This prevalence, without symptoms, means that Candida can be considered a member of the normal microflora of human beings. The microflora are communities of microscopic organisms that live with us for the whole of our lives, and are beneficial to our health.
Under certain circumstances, however, Candida fungus can cause infectious disease, which occasionally can take a very serious form. How can a microorganism be a member of our microflora and also cause disease?
