Guess how many pounds of bacteria are in your body right now.

That’s right – we said POUNDS OF BACTERIA.

Bacteria: The Benign, the Bad, and the Beautiful
Bacteria:
The Benign, the Bad, and the Beautiful

That’s right – just washing your hands isn’t good enough to get rid of all the germs and bacteria that you’re carrying around every day.

So how many pounds are there?  Would you believe that the average person carries THREE TO FIVE POUNDS OF BACTERIA inside them?

Reading the linked article above, they’ve even found a huge amount of UNDOCUMENTED BELLY BUTTON GERMS in people’s navels.  Not three pounds worth – that would be crazy.

Of course, considering WHERE BELLY BUTTON LINT COMES FROM, we wouldn’t really be surprised if some people really do have pounds of lint in their belly button.

Let’s face it – people are gross.
