Maybe I should only shower once a week???

No sense in washing away those naturally protective substances.

interesting. i can see why eating garlic is helpful in sweat too. the allicin may actually be in the sweat as well as the rest of the body.

Times of India, eh. They trying to encourage people to not get air conditioning?

All I know is that when I sweat, the microbes on my body love it. So do creatures like mosquitoes . . .

I always thought sweat brought the toxins out of you, and you then shower/bathe them off.

There are microbes that love sweat, but dermcidin is real and powerful. The down side of this discovery is huge though. When we use it in a sloppy manner (and we will), the result will be dermcidin-resistant bacteria. That’s not a disaster if they are dermcidin-resistant body odor, but what about dermcidin-resistant TB? I hope they fail in developing this antibiotic commercially, although it is likely that they will be able to move quickly.

Americans with brains have been sweating profusely over these past four years and will sweat even more over the next four.

This excessive sweating hasn’t protected us from the bug that has infested the White Hut and our once great nation.

So what happens when they market these drugs and bacteria develop resistance? We will all end up with tribulation like boils.
