How are bacteria produced?
This occurrence only happens when the conditions are right, but if they have enough nutrients and it's in the right weather conditions (such as temperature, light, etc.), they multiply to even further better protect whatever it is they're protecting, in this case the human body.
What are the parts of a bacteria cell?
• Cytoplasm to rest the organelles in.
• DNA to hold the information for the bacteria.
• A cell wall to keep and sustain its structure.
• A flagellum to allow it to move around.
• The plasma membrane is for transporting things in and out of the bacterium.
• Ribosomes for protein synthesis
A bacterium is also prokaryotic.
This is what the bacteria that is all over your body and almost all living things looks like up-close.

How are antibiotics made to harm bacteria?
There are three different types of antibiotic 'families' that can annihilate bacteria and those include Beta-Lactam, Macrolides, and Quinolones. All three of these have different ways of taking out the bacteria, and those ways can be by the ways of blocking cell walls (as mentioned previously), destroying the ribosomes that produce the proteins for the cell, and corrupting the DNA permanently.
Bacteria's bad effects on your body
- Bacteria can kill the human body through food.
- Very few people get seriously ill through food bacteria, however.
- E. coli can be found in your food of animals you eat, which can interfere with the E. coli already living inside of your intestines, and cause issues there.
- E. coli can even lead to diarrhea, severe illness, salmonella, placing you into the hospital, and as mentioned above, death.
- Pathogenic bacteria can cause disease in humans, animals, and even plants.
- Food spoiling can also create harmful effects to your body.
- A disease caused from canned food poisons is Clostridium botulinum and can cause death.
