When you hear hoofbeats, look for horses, not zebras, which means look for the simplest, most common explanation first..
It is estimated for every cell in the body, there are 10-13 microorganism we generally called bacteria. It is estimated in the body there lives 500-1000 type of bacteria.
How many type of bacteria on the planet?
“10,000,000,000,000,000,000 (1019) or a ten quintillion bacterial species.”
I drink the water, I have drunk the water in over 100 countries, and I am still alive and kicking. But why? It is my proposition that in reality, we go out and about getting small vaccinations of bacteria, which enter our body from water, food, air, skin, we are inundated with bacteria. On just our tongue there a few billion, by the time it makes is the gut, the flora inside is trillions. It is trendy to have pro-biotics, which is adding bacteria to the body.
So what is a travel? It s a probiotic, travel is the introduction of 1000’s of new bacteria into our bodies, and allowing the body to adapt. In reality, that which does not kill does indeed make us stronger.
Travel is the best probiotic on the planet.
Therefore go forth and drink the water, travel.
How to lose the fight against bacteria?
Poor hygiene, poor sanitation, poor nutrition, and a body that is so fat, unfit, and eating so many sugars, and carbohydrate poisons it cannot fight back. Generally the best way to fight bacteria is to stop eating, giving the body a break from fighting off new ones, so it can recoup, and destroy all the ones already on its plate.
It is not the bacteria, is the number of bacteria that enter the battle, too many and our body fails to adapt.
This is one of them fun Travel Blog post, food for thought, possible posing more questions than answer, we all will find our own paths, and none of us will get out this alive, go forth and live, drink the water.
