‘Germ clouds’ containing millions of bugs surround EVERY human – and they show where you have been

Cloudy day: The millions of bugs surround us at all times
Every human on earth has a cloud of germs surrounding them at all times – and it is almost as distinct to that person as a fingerprint.
The “microbial cloud” contains millions of bugs that are put out from various pores and points in our bodies.
According to experts, the cloud hangs around a person’s body at all times and each individual cloud has a signature that could be read by carrying out genetic analysis of the bacteria.
Scientists were able to identify individuals from a group of volunteers just by sampling germs from the air around them.
The noxious nimbus consists of combinations of microbes emitted from our bodies that vary from person to person.
Scientists who tested 11 volunteers identified thousands of different types of bacteria in 312 samples of air and dust taken from a chamber in which each participant was asked to sit alone.
Most of the chamber occupants could be identified within four hours by matching them to their bugs.
