I have the petri dish and agar. I think I can just swab each mouth and then see which one grows more germs. I have not been able to find any research to tell me how many germs I should expect to grow in either mouth. I can find the definition of germs and have done so. I was wondering if there is more research out there that I have not found. I've been searching. That's how I found you!
