Bacteria, the Good & the Bad

Two articles were brought to my attention today, both concrning those little creatures ith whom we must learn to co-exist, or perish. Too much of them in the wrong place, and we die. Too few of them in the right place, and we get really sick... Yep, I am referring to our prokariotic friends, those single-celled ubiquitous critters called bacteria.

First, one on bacteria and newborns. Yes, they need them too. [This article gives yet another reason to pursue natural childbirth rather than medically "controlled" (usually = meddled-in) births.]

Second, one on bacteria and reusable grocery bags. No, they do not need them.

Check 'em out!

Thanks for posting the article on the reusable bags. I just heard a little blip on the radio yesterday about that, so it was nice to read the information in the article.
