That's true: in average, between 100-100000 bacteria are ALWAYS present in your stomach, and this is the case when you are healthy
@Jelanen
I would be intrested if you could tell me more about those yogurt cultures.

I read the labels on my yogurt and they always advertise that there are "active cultures" of acidophilus bifidicus or something like that. I guess it helps in digestion of milk.

I gave some wrong information: That is 100-100000 bacteria per every mililiter of substance in your stomach, not the whole stomach. Sorry for that.

My yogurt has Lactobacillus casei imunitas :D

so........because poison is not digested in the stomach, it spreads to different organs and causes trouble. :)

More like it spreads everywhere and causes trouble where it can. Some tissues may be severely effected while others not at all. Depends on the poison.

Most things affect your liver since that is where blood is "purified". Alcohol is a good example here
