Is a human bite toxic?
« on: 05/11/2010 11:30:03 »
Silfa Zoidberg via Facebook asked the Naked Scientists:
   
My flatmate always claims that the worst 'thing' that can bite you is a human being. He has all sorts of stories of horribly infected wounds caused by one person biting another, so I was wondering if there is any truth in it. are we really so toxic? And isn't the saliva somehow antibacterial?

What do you think?
