It might surprise you to know that if you’re a healthy human, you have yeast living in your body (and if you’ve had a delicious slice of bread or mouthwatering glass of wine, you also have fungi to thank for that). But what DOES yeast do for human health–and at what point does yeast become a problem? How much yeast is too much? And what treatments are appropriate for things like yeast infections? In today’s episode, Dr. Jen takes a look at the science to answer these questions and more, and gives us guidance on how to approach the fungus in –and among– us. https://go.ted.com/BSTscript12
