It is said that boiling water kills the germs present in it. But what happens to the dead bodies of the germs?

The germs have to be living for it to attack us or produce toxins

And since your boiling the water kills them, they  have no power to cause disease in us

A bacteria Clostridium botulinum, which causes Botulism, performs differently, Its toxins are not secreted into the water but is kept inside their bodies.

So, killing this botulinum bacteria can release toxin from their “dead bodies” to infect us.
