Is it Possible to Keep Off the Bad Bacteria Types

By: Wangeci Kinyanjui

The greatest puzzle for many people has always been how to differentiate good bacteria types from bad bacteria types. This situation usually occurs when you want to either use bacteria for beneficial purposes like yogurt production or just wanting to know more of the bad bacteria so that you can be able to keep off from them. Although both types of bacteria are important to learn about, many a times, keen interest is given to the harmful types of bacteria.The reason behind this is that, people want to prevent themselves from suffering the enormous torture brought along with it.

Well, have trouble no more as you try to differentiate these two sets of bacteria because i will show you categories of the bad bacteria types.

We begin with one particular rod-shaped bacterium known as the Yersinia pestis alias bubonic plague. This type of bacterium is transmitted by bacteria-carrying fleas and is said to be a very harmful bacterium.It was even branded the name "Black death" due to the fact that it causes a dark discoloration in the victim's face after the victim has died. Yersinia pestis killed millions of people in Europe almost half of its population during the 14th century. It was being transmitted by flea bites and the effects were able to spread widely in a fast mode due to the fact that the bacteria could be carried and passed from one individual to the other by flea-carrying animals such as rats and mice. The deadly disease that this micro-organism brought was known as plague which was little known back in the 14th century hence doctors? were not able to save people due to the fact that they were not knowledgeable about the disease.

Today,the minute occurrences of this disease still take place but due to the evolving medical researches, it can be treated before it has caused much harm.

Anthrax is another deadly bad bacteria type of its own kind.The bacteria infects animals, especially cattle and sheep by destroying or damaging the animal's body cells and making them not to function properly. Most of the times the animal would be seen to have bad sours on the skin before it finally dies.

To add to the list of bad bacteria types are the pathogenic bacteria.They are termed to be some of the most harmful bacteria that can ever exist in a human body.This group of bacteria is believed to cause infections such as syphilis, cholera, tetanus tuberculosis, food borne illnesses and fever.Pathogens are formed whenever the bacteria get to form parasitic associations with other living organisms surrounding them hence being able to feed from the host and at the same time causing sickness to the same host.

The salmonella and E. coli are bacteria known to cause food poisoning in people therefore they are also seen as being part of the bad bacteria types.They enter the body through the mouth because they attach themselves to the food that we eat. After we have ingested the contaminated food, the bacteria become active in the digestive system and makes improper reactions to occur during the digestion process.The victim usually undergoes a lot of pain as a result of these bacteria tampering with the digestive system in the body.

Stay safe and avoid as much as possible not to be exposed to the bad bacteria types now that you know them.
