All Germs are Not Created Equal

Health

All germs are not created equal but what are germs anyway? 

Germs, also known as microbes pretty much live everywhere. They are in the air, on food (I know, grosss!), plants and animals.  They live in soil, water and  just about every other surface including your body!

Most germs won’t harm you. That’s what your immune system is for.  It protects you against infectious agents liek germs. However, some germs are more problematic  because they’re constantly mutating to breach your immune system’s defenses.

Knowing more about germs can increase your chances of avoiding infection.

The Terrain Theory, proposed by Antoine Béchamp, on the other hand, argues that if the body is well and balanced then germs are a natural part of life.
