A book about the smallest of all creatures on earth. Micropia professor Remco Kort makes it clear to us that a negative approach to bacteria is not always the right approach. In fact, every day of our existence we owe to the billions of minuscule benefactors that surround us.
Microbes are just like people: they search for food, have sex and switch lifestyles. We act as their host. We read where they are in our body, how we feed them and what they offer us. We don't seem to be more than employed by our microbes. We need to control our appetite and free ourselves from our invisible chains.
As a true microbe master, in this modern age we should not focus too unilaterally and unfocused on destroying the microbes - with emerging immune diseases and antibiotic resistance as a result. Microbe missionary Remco Kort brings healthy bacteria to the African continent, where healthy drinking yogurt is made. We travel with him.
Finally, after more than three centuries of darkness, microbes are gaining the recognition they deserve. From now on they are fully in the spotlight. We will never overlook them again.
