(NaturalNews) The word "bacteria" certainly doesn't have a pleasant ring to it. It calls to mind pictures of uncleanliness and disease. And if something called E. coli can cause outbreaks every now and then, we may never get beyond our initial perception of bacteria being harmful.
Nevertheless, despite our childhood prejudices brought about by our parents' instruction of always having to wash our hands before eating, not all bacteria are harmful to humans. Although it is true that many diseases can be attributed to bacterial infections, there are bacteria that are completely harmless. Some perform beneficial functions like converting milk to cheese and others live in our stomach and see to it that we stay healthy.
