Invisible Allies: Microbes That Shape Our Lives

Out of stock
Microbes have a bad reputation as disease-causers and teeth-rotters, but in truth the positive effects of the tiny creatures far outweigh the negative. Microscopic forms of life live around, on, and inside us. Without them, chocolate wouldn’t exist, bread wouldn’t rise, and we would never be able to digest food. Glossary. Notes and bibliography. Index.
