World of bacteria - the science behind microorganisms

  • Published 1 year ago

For a long time, microorganisms, and bacteria specifically, have been associated with plagues and epidemics.

Bacteria are everywhere around us. They live in the ground, in the water, and in the air. Simply put, there is no creature on Earth that is not populated by bacteria. And there is no area that is not populated by bacteria.

But as we know, there are good and bad bacteria. For example, if you’ve ever read an article about weight loss and healthy eating, you know that probiotics (the good bacteria), help with that.

Now, scientists are trying to discover the healing and invisible power of bacteria. As it turns out, bacteria are more complex than we thought.

The documentary explores the complex life of bacteria and microorganisms living in the bodies of living things. Without bacteria, our digestive, reproductive, and immune system would not work. So, how do bacteria help us?

Just think of this fact for a moment: our body contains 10 times more bacteria than it contains cells. Scientists are beginning to understand why are bacteria so important to us.
