The micro world
You can't see microbes, but they are there. They are there when you eat, when you breathe and when you kiss. They are everywhere, on your hands and in your stomach, interfering with everything. They determine what the world looks like. Microbes are the smallest and most powerful organisms on our planet. We know little about them, but we can learn a lot from them. If you look at the world very closely, a new one opens up for you.
