Although hygiene and antibiotics have overall improved our health, we might have taken our war against germs too far. B Brett Finlay talks about why a little dirt and our microbes might be good for all of us, as he discusses his new book, Let Them Eat Dirt, co-authored with Marie-Claire Arrieta.

B Brett Finlay is co-director of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research’s Humans & the Microbiome program, and a microbiologist at the University of British Columbia.
