The Germ Code
How to Stop Worrying and Learn to Love the MicrobesBook - 2013
Since the dawn of the human race, germs have been making us sick. "The Germ Code" is a wise, witty, and wonderfully readable guide to our relationship with these infinitesimal but infinitely powerful creatures. Microbiologist Jason Tetro takes us outside the lab and shows the enormous influence of germs upon humanity's past, present, and future. From his own research and personal experience, Tetro relates how the most recent flu pandemic happened, explains that not every germ is our foe, and offers advice on harnessing the power of good germs to stay healthy and make our planet a better place.
