The Premier League averages 687,430 people through the gates every week, and considering the average person carries around enough bacteria to fill a big soup can- around three to five pounds in weight. according to Lita Proctor, the program coordinator of the National Institutes of Health’s Human Microbiome Project, which studies the communities of bacteria living on and in us, that’s a serious amount of bacteria wandering the terraces!
The bacteria cells in our body outnumber human cells 10 to 1, she says, but because they are much smaller than human cells, they account for only about 1 to 2 percent of our body mass—though they do make up about half of our body’s waste.
