Germs or bacteria is one thing, worms, flukes and protists is another.

I was quite surprised by the heavy load and variety.

Basically in humans the organisms are different but the equivalent of, malaria, sleeping sickness, entamoeba, giardia, cryptosporidium, hookworm, tapeworm, pinworm, liverflukes.

I'm not sure I'd want to be shopping in that mall

... and I certainly wouldn't be eating amazonian sushi.
