Disgusting Microorganisms That Are on You Right Now

What's worse than a scary, creepy bug crawling across your wall late at night? How about trillions of tiny bugs you can't see calling your flesh home?

How many is "trillions," exactly? Well, there are roughly the same number of microorganisms living on your body as the number of cells in your body. In other words, your body is about half bug.

Creepy microorganisms scare the living daylights out of us, and for good reason: most of them are flat-out disgusting. On your face right now are a ton of tiny spider-like creatures just waiting to die so they can explode waste all over you. That's their whole life cycle and no matter what you do, you can never get rid of them. Doesn't that put your other problems into perspective?

Below is a list of some of the most disgusting microorganisms and tiny bugs that live on people. Be warned, once you see this list of bacteria and microorganism facts, you might never be the same. You might scrub yourself a little harder in the shower, or wash your hands just a little bit more aggressively, but remember - nothing you do matters. These bad boys are here to stay.
