9780857832924: The Life of Poo: Or Why You Should Think Twice about Shaking Hands (especially with Men)

Poo! Most of us don't really like to talk about it. In fact, many of us would probably rather it didn't exist at all, or at least if it must exist could it not be more pleasantly fragranced? In The Life of Poo, Adam Hart explores this most unmentionable of subjects and the hidden world of bacteria-a microscopic horde that has profound, unexpected, sometimes unpleasant, but often beneficial effects on our health, wealth and well-being-taking the reader on a humorous, inspiring and myth-busting journey from the poo in your toilet to the cutting-edge of scientific understanding. Whether you are brushing your teeth, having sex, suffering from an irritable bowel, battling with Crohn's disease, worrying about too little or too much hygiene, coping with asthma, cleaning your bathroom,following the 2-second rule, debating the 5-second rule, guzzling probiotics or just sitting on the toilet, this book is for you.
