Bacteria are small, simple, single-celled organisms that live in virtually all environments on Earth, including your body. Bacteria can sometimes cause diseases when the immune system is weakened or they get into body tissues.
Benefits of Bacteria
- Bacteria help prevent disease by fighting off harmful germs and producing antibodies that protect you from illness.
- Bacteria help plants grow by fixing nitrogen from the air into a form that can be used by plants to make food through a process called nitrogen fixation.
- Bacteria help us digest our food so we don’t get sick from eating too much fat or sugar (which could lead to obesity).
- Bacteria help break down dead plants and animals into nutrients for other living things to use in their own growth process.
- Bacteria are used to make medicines and vaccines, such as penicillin, streptomycin and sulfa drugs, as well as insulin for diabetics.
