Are bacteria good or bad?
Bacteria are often known as the causes of human
and animal disease. However, not all bacteria are pathogen.
Bacteria put the tang in yogurt and the sour in
sourdough bread; bacteria help to break down dead organic matter; bacteria make
up the base of the food web in many environments.
Do bacteria also live in our body? Does every
part of our body has it's own type of bacteria? The fact is that millions of
these microscopic organisms live everywhere around us and inside our bodies as
well. This fact alone should be enough to want to make us all experts in
bacteria. However, there are so many different types, sizes, and varieties in
general that even experienced scientists don't know everything there is to know.
A good starting point to learning about bacteria is a field study designed by
scienceproject.com involving types of bacteria found in the body.
Off course whenever dealing with bacteria, at
the very least you will need a good microscope. Miniscience.com offers
quality microscopes. A cheaper alternative can also be found at
toys2000.com. Both websites offer other lab supplies as well.
