Whenever we hear the word “germ”, we immediately link it to something unhygienic. Billions and trillions of germs live in and on your body and only a few of them are malignant. Yet, you still need to guard against them lest they do their mischief with your health. Germs can cause mild to serious health concerns, from common cold to heart diseases. You need to avoid germs throughout the year, and not just in the winter season. Being conscious of the public places which are most infected would help you ward off the threat of infections.
