There are nearly 332,000 genetically distinct bacteria on the human hand. You may not think of it like this, but your mouthguard is a bacteria ambassador to your body.

2007 was the first year that I captained a team for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. I know it's a different organization, but bare with me. When I showed up for my first team captain meeting, they asked all the captains "Why do you relay?"
People stepped up to share their stories of victory or grief. I was a little bit of a unique case - you see, no one in my family or among my friends had been affected by cancer. I relayed, I said, because I wanted to keep cancer at bay. I wanted to turn the tides and start winning the fight.
