Big question. Have you done any research of your own? Do you mean humans? Yeast? Bacteria? Come now, be specific...

If you did do research you'll find that your question is broader than the side of a texas barn. Be more specific!

Hmm. Well I suppose if we all give a couple of factors off the top of our heads then we'll start getting somewhere:
