Health Inspector's Notebook Comic Strip - If Germs Can Talk, What Would They Say?


Health Inspector's Notebook Comic Strip - If Germs can talk

What are germs and what happens when they can talk?


Germs are microscopic organisms including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa. Germs can be found just about everywhere,while it is common to believe that all germs are bad, most germs do not harm us at all and some are even good for us. 
Good Germs: They are helpful germs that help us digest food and produce vitamins that keep us healthy. There are on skin that keep skin healthy and help keep bad germs from getting in our body. Some germs such as Penicillin mold are actually grown to be used as medicine to kills many harmful types of bacteria.Also, there are germs that can make foods like yogurt, cheese, pickles, beer, wine, meat products such as Salami and other cured meats, soy sauce and more. 
Bad Germs: They can cause disease such as food poisoning and can really make us sick. After eating food like meat, poultry, eggs, dairy products, and seafood, even fruits, vegetables, and other raw foods also can get contaminated, we can develop sudden and severe symptoms like vomiting, diarrhea, fever and dehydration. Food poisoning can be more dangerous to people with health conditions like chronic kidney disease or weakened immune systems as well as the very old and very young.
After my retirement as a Toronto public health inspector in 2013, I drew on my 36-year career for inspiration to start an online comic strip Health Inspector's Notebook with my son Christopher, a digital artist, helps in art design, layout and animation in the creation of the comic strip, as well as handling web development and posting using his website to promote the comic strip (chanchris.com).
