The print itself represents several days of growth as different yeasts, fungi, and bacteria are allowed to incubate.
It’s safe to say almost everything you see growing in this specimen is harmless and in many cases even beneficial to a person’s immunity, but it just goes to show why we sometimes it’s good to wash our hands. More
