    Hello!

    Scientists realized that flies have bacteriophage germs on the surface of their bodies (they even extract it from flies to create antibiotics:
    http://abc.gov.au/science/articles/2.../01/689400.htm ),

    but when flies eat excrement and then land on one's food,
    why can't their anti-bacteria germs prevent us from being infected?
