There are over a hundred worms in any given body; The air, water and food we eat all contain these critters! Even sexual intercourse brings these monsters into our being. They can creep through the nose and skin, reside and set up shop in our intestines and wreak havoc on our digestive system and overall health.
Often, we focus on the fear of human terrorists invading the borders of our nation. Which is all good but there is another kind of "terrorist" that we need to be mindful of that is microscopic and can do just as much damage to us individually as any human interloper.
