Dr. Charles Gerba, microbiology professor at the Arizona University at Tucson, has been on a tirade for decades about the hazards of germs in our environment. He’s done study after study to expose where germs are and how best to protect ourselves from them.
It’s important to note that some germs are beneficial to our health. In fact, billions of bacterial “germs” live inside our digestive system and are referred to as our gut flora. If you get an imbalance of these germs, you feel sick or get infected. An imbalance can be caused by antibiotics, poor diet or external organisms that we ingest and attack the beneficial germs.
