Good & Bad
How are viruses or bacteria good or bad?
Viruses - The BAD
Viruses itself can make on and the people around you very sick
Cause many of the worst diseases such as:
They are very dangerous that they are capable of spreading in the air by sneezing, coughs, and surfaces such as door handles and cell/telephones.
There a few antibiotics and medicines for viruses, but they won't work either way on viruses so there is no point taking them in the long run.
Bacteria - The GOOD
Bacteria are good for our bodies to help keep things in balance
Antibiotics: limits the growth of other bacteria
Saprophytes: organisms that use dead organisms as food
Nitrogen-fixing Bacteria-plants: bacteria that changes the nitrogen in the air into forms that plants and animals can use
Methane gas: released as waste by certain bacteria can be used as fuels for heating, cooking, and industry
Food: bacteria can be used to make foods such as cheese, sauerkraut, and buttermilk
Bacteria - The BAD
Acne: skin cells, hair, and sebum clump together in a plug and the plug gets infected by bacteria and makes pimples
Strep Throat: strep throat is a bacteria infection that takes place in the throat and tonsils
Flatulence: flatulence is caused by swallowing air, and the breakdown of certain foods in the large intestine by bacteria
Body Odor: the smell after one works out is the odor of bacteria metabolizing the sweat, not the sweat itself
Lyme Disease: you can get Lyme disease by getting bit by an infected tick, as the tick carries bacteria
Tetanus: bacteria from rusted metal leads to tetanus, clostridium tetani, are found in soil, animal waste, and even dust
