"Jason Tetro has provided an owner's manual for the trillions of personal organisms that we cannot live without. It's an easy read guide to how they participate in health, food, beauty and even sex. It will change the way you look at your entire being." —Bob McDonald, host, CBC Radio’s Quirks & Quarks
"Reading this book is like going on safari with a smart and experienced adventure guide. Sit back as Tetro brings into focus a world of magnificent microscopic creatures, and reveals what their fascination behaviour means for human well-being." —Ziya Tong, Host, Daily Planet, Discovery Channel.
"When you flush the toilet, keep the lid down. If you want fresh breath, chew a stick of gum for two minutes. The Germ File is filled with incredibly practical advice like that, backed by the latest scientific evidence. Jason Tetro curates a breezy take on the bacteria, viruses, fungi and other little beasties among us. But behind the easy read is an important message. Some germs are our best friends. Others are our worst enemies. Knowing which is which makes your life better and might one day even save it." —Brian Goldman, host, CBC Radio's White Coat, Black Art
