Nishant Choksi in October’s New Yorker
Did you know that you’re currently concealing around ten thousand bacterial species about your person? And what’s more they weigh three pounds? Yes, you heard us - THREE POUNDS !!!! They’re the villans causing your skinny jeans to get stuck at your cankles. In fact these pesky germs exist over our bodies affecting our immune systems and even altering our brain chemistry. Blimey, they’re not even paying rent - takes the Michael don’t it?
Speaking of which Nishant Choksi was asked to illustrate Michael Specter’s fascinating piece on this topic for October’s New Yorker, Specter reports on the future of ‘designer bacteria’, a time when Parents may be able to purchase ballet lessons and probiotics for their kids, thus ensuring their offspring have grace, flexibility and a healthy gut. Lovely.
