Yeast is an interesting microorganism. Those of us who aren’t brewers or bakers tend not to have a lot to do with it.

As I grew up, I was the one telling the other girls to go bare-bottomed at sleepovers to prevent yeast infections, an issue I didn’t fully understand at the time, and that thongs dragged bacteria from your anus to your vagina.
