Bacteria and viruses may gain entry to your body through what is known as a “Trojan Horse.” The term grew from Greek mythology and was first recorded in Homer’s 8th century B.C. epic poem, The Iliad. The Trojan horse was a diversion used to sneak an army into the fortified city of Troy.
As the myth is told, the Trojan War was started by the Greek god Zeus to reduce the human population and reclaim Helen. Unable to achieve their goal in a straightforward attack, the Greeks left an enormous wooden horse outside the city as a “present” for the Trojans.
