A World Without Microbes


What would happen if, by waving a magic wand, all the germs disappeared from our planet? It would of course be the end of many health problems: no more Ebola, malaria or tuberculosis, no more AIDS, no more septicemia or fungal infections…But beyond these benefits, is a world without bacteria, viruses or microscopic mushrooms really desirable?

Would the disappearance of this invisible world have other consequences for our organisms and our environment? Would life still be possible? 

A World Without Microbes dives into the fascinating world of the infinitesimally small. Thanks to a rigorous investigation with the help of specialists, beautiful CGI and astonishing microscopic images, we discover to what extent the minute beings surrounding us and living inside us are the masters of life on earth.
