Curiosity: World’s Dirtiest Man

We shower, we bathe, we apply perfumes and deodorants. We’re cleaner and healthier than at any other point in human history.

So it may be surprising to learn there are 10 times more things living on you than cells in your body.

From the flora of our guts to the fauna on our skin and hair, this episode explores the wildlife park that is the human body in stunning, microscopic detail – combining the creativity of natural history filmmaking with the charisma of Discovery’s very own Mike Rowe.

    A very cute and amusing host finds out he’s teeming with microbes of bacteria. It made ME want to run and scrub off in the shower. A fun little show that teaches a lot about our bodies and the things we can’t see all around us.
