Bacteria are truly on the rampage again. They've become immune to the best of our antibiotics, rendering once-treatable infections deadly. However, bacteria do more than make us cringe: Learn how they can be helpful, aiding in meal digestion, air and water pollution control, and even in the treatment of muscle disorders. Segments include the following:
  • Understanding: Bacteria: Explore our uneasy relationship with these wily microbes, and come away with insights that will give your life science lesson plans a healthy shot in the arm.
  • Restricted Waters: Learn how scientists are working on ways to reduce the dangers of water pollution.
