Bacteria Vs. Viruses
Though many people may believe that there are other major factors that are a threat to mankind and viruses are not even a major issue, they actually are. I totally agree that they are one of the biggest threats to mankind as they can be extremely harmful based on the type and they are the cause for hundreds of deaths nowadays. The following are worldwide statistics on this issue. “Worldwide, these annual epidemics are estimated to result in about 3 to 5 million cases of severe illness, and about 290 000 to 650 000 respiratory deaths.”
Back in those days, viruses like the black death have wiped out over 75 million people in the year 1350. We can see from these alarming statistics how much of an effect a virus can have on the whole community if spread. Though it is known that some viruses may be useful to our body in helping it to get rid of invading microbes, not all are as friendly and are mostly dangerous for humans.
The problem with viruses is that it has very few remedies to cure and when it gets severe and unnoticed by you, it can cause serious damage and may even result in your death. Another main issue is that it can easily spread through the smallest contact with another person and then it will start infecting them as well until a group of people are all affected and suffering by it. You will not be able to live a normal life with certain viruses impacting your daily life. Certain viruses can even be spread through the air when infected people cough or sneeze around you and it won’t be noticed by you as deadly but it can turn out that way if you somehow catch it. The world had a bad experience at certain time periods in history with some deadly viruses that killed millions of people like Ebola, Influenza, Black death and others. The things people back then did to prevent getting the viruses was shocking like separating family members and letting them die by themselves so the rest of the family doesn’t catch the virus and isolating anyone who had the virus were all quite heart-wrenching though due to those barbaric methods, the deadly viruses ended.
Though we can all predict how the world would have been if some of the viruses had no cure to end and was still continuing today. Though, we can argue that humans are partly responsible and the cause for the rise in viral infections. The lifestyle in which we got adapted has partially been to blame for. Though the virus may start off as small for us like a general cold, it can become worse if we don’t react and try some remedies to get rid of it. Our immune system is known to get rid of mostly all sorts of bacterial infections as well as viral though there are a few viruses like HIV which weakens the immune system that then will be quite hard to be able to fight off. Overall, based on the past experiences from history and the current effects of viruses happening at the moment based on the statistics and research clearly shows that viruses are a big threat for all living things and have a chance of becoming even more dangerous if everyone doesn’t have an awareness of it and try to stay safe and hygienic.
While researching for this paper, I’ve learned a little bit more about the history of dental carries and its effects on us even in the early days. I found a few authors who took time to really study the behaviours of oral bacteria that lives in our mouth. This paper also tells the importance of being well educated regarding our oral health. As we all know that bacteria were the first living things on Earth way back a few hundred...
Streptococci species are commonly isolated on Blood agar, a commonly used media in microbiology laboratories. Blood agar is composed of Tryptic Soy mixed with 5% of sheep red blood cells. This media is not only used to isolate streptococci, but also staphylococci species of bacteria via hemolysis which refers to the breakdown of red blood cells in enriched agar base surrounding bacterial colonies (Gera and McIver 2013). The haemolytic properties of blood agar detect Streptococci bacteria. The process is mediated...
Since the invention of mobile cell phones, people have been carrying them wherever they go and using them for long periods of time throughout the day. Today’s cell phones can do everything from making a phone call across the world, to searching the internet and taking high definition photographs of anything in sight. Cell phones also have applications that people do want to close out of, like video games and social media. On average, an American spends four hours on...
INTRODUCTION The main goal of this experiment was to separate strain from a natural and the existence of living microbes which are present in the environment. The natural environment has a lot of bacteria suspended in the air. The surfaces around the lab can have capability of contamination too. In this experiment, microorganisms were taken from different sources to determine how growth of bacteria can grow from the surrounding environment. This method is important because it enables recombination of DNA...
Bacteria – these are single cell microorganism that come in many shapes and forms these can be ball, rod or spiral shaped. most bacteria’s are not harmful and some can be helpful less than 1 percent of these are infectious which can multiply in the body leading to disease. They can produce toxins that can make someone very ill. bacteria can be spread by coughing, sneezing, surfaces and skin contact, bodily fluids e.g. blood and saliva or even sexual intercourse....
Bacterium is any domain called bacteria with predominantly circular, curved or rod-shaped; prokaryotic microorganisms that norms are soil, water, organic material, or plant or animal organs, that make their very own meals from the light of the sun or are saprophytic or parasitic is often motivated by flagella. Bacteria do not have a cellular membrane or fiber tied bodies and when there is a tissue wall, they are categorized as being gram-positive or gram-negative. Although many bacteria are oxygen-based, many...
How to prevent and what effects does E. coli produce on the body? The main origin of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli outbreaks are raw or undercooked meat products, raw milk and faecal-contaminated vegetables. Considering that the E. Coli bacteria we all have in our body. We can cite the most important themes that should be known about this bacterium as: panoramic about E. coli, symptoms and sources of transmission, and prevention. E. coli that is a member of the enterobacteria...
Introduction Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is used medically to treat patients and especially children who suffer from pituitary deficiency. This hormone considered to be a protein which contains a specific molecular weight of 22,000 which is extracted or taken from the human pituitary glands (Dr. David Goeddel, 1979) . It was produced using molecular biological techniques derived from a specific bacteria and it was announced by the formal communication of Genentech’s results to a specific community at Miles’s Symposium. In...
Abstract The purpose of this experiment was to determine the optimal temperature for both bacterial enzyme amylase, known as Bacillus licheniformis (B. licheniformis), and fungal enzyme amylase, known as Aspergillus oryzae (A. oryzae). During this experiment, both enzymes were exposed to 4 different temperatures (0 ᵒC, 25 ᵒC, 55 ᵒC, and 85 ᵒC) for specific time intervals. The time intervals were 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 minutes each. Because we are conduction an experiment, the 0 ᵒC was...
