Did You Know: You Have A Colony In Your Hands!

Bacteria can be found everywhere... EVERYWHERE! Some are good and helpful, others are bad and harmful. Did you know that you can find as many as 3,000 (if not more) bacteria on your hands solely? Did you know that you can find as many as 150 different types of bacteria on one person't hand? Did you also know that every one of us has a unique bacterial "fingerprint"? [source: colorado.edu]

Now that winter infections and flu cases are on the increase, it's good to stay safe and not miss out on thorough hand washing. I know you may love those tiny fellows keeping you company on the cold days of winter, but I think you could live without some of them.

Yes, even here on Steemit! I'm good and helpful!

You seem like a nice bacterium! :D

for reasons of completeness of info: not everywhere. Your surface and your guts, yes. In your blood there should be very little bacteria, and in your central nervous system - including the brain - none at all. Hopefully.^^

Well, I was referring to the human body as a whole so, everywhere generalizes it. But thanks for clarifying it! :)

Oooh, I wonder what my bacterial fingerprint is?

Hehe! Me too :P
