A microbe (from the Greek: mikrós,
"small" is an organism that is
microscopic (usually too small to be
seen by the naked human eye).
The study of microorganisms is
Microorganisms are very diverse;
they include bacteria, fungi,
archaea, and protists; microscopic
plants (called green algae); and
animals such as plankton and the
planarian. Some microbiologists
also include viruses, but others
consider these as non-living.
What follows are mostly excerpts
from the site:
They are for academic discussion
and have no medical or scientific
In medicine, only eukaryotic
organisms are considered
parasites, with the exclusion of
bacteria and viruses.
Some branches of biology,
however, regard members of
these groups as parasitic.
In the vocabulary of Dr Clark,
"parasite" sense is very close to
the wide definition of the
dictionary, and includes microbes,
viruses, dust mites, bacteria,
The bacteria are a large group of unicellular microorganisms. Bacteria are ubiquitous in every habitat on Earth,
growing in soil, acidic hot springs, radioactive waste, water, and deep in the Earth's crust, as well as in organic
matter and the live bodies of plants and animals.
There are typically 40 million bacterial cells in a gram of soil and a million bacterial cells in a milliliter of fresh water.
In all, there are approximately five nonillion (5×10^30) bacteria on Earth, forming much of the world's biomass.
There are approximately ten times as many bacterial cells in the human flora of bacteria as there are human cells
in the body, with large numbers of bacteria on the skin and as gut flora.
The vast majority of the bacteria in the body are rendered harmless by the protective effects of the immune
system, and a few are beneficial.
However, a few species of bacteria are pathogenic and cause infectious diseases, including cholera, syphilis,
anthrax, leprosy and bubonic plague.
The most common fatal bacterial diseases are respiratory infections, with tuberculosis alone killing about 2 million
people a year, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa.
In developed countries, antibiotics are used to treat bacterial infections and in agriculture, so antibiotic resistance
is becoming common.
In industry, bacteria are important in sewage treatment, the production of cheese and yogurt through
fermentation, as well as in biotechnology, and the manufacture of antibiotics and other chemicals.
Under optimal conditions, bacteria can grow and divide extremely rapidly, and bacterial populations can double as
quickly as every 9.8 minutes.
A virus (from the Latin virus meaning toxin or poison) is an infectious agent defined as a DNA or RNA bundle with a
protein coat that replicates through the infection of host cells (viroids do not have a protein coat; prions are infectious and
self-replicating but do not have DNA or RNA).
Viruses are too small to be seen directly with a light microscope.
They are not made of cells and can only replicate inside the cells of another organism (the viruses' host).
Viruses infect all types of organisms, from animals and plants to bacteria and archaea. Viruses are found in almost every
ecosystem on Earth and these minute structures are the most abundant type of biological entity.
Viral infections in animals provoke an immune response that usually eliminates the infecting virus. These immune responses
can also be produced by vaccines, which give immunity to specific viral infections. However, some viruses including HIV
and those causing viral hepatitis evade these immune responses and cause chronic infections.
Examples of common human diseases caused by viruses include :
= the common cold,
= cold sores.
Many serious diseases such as ebola, AIDS, avian influenza and SARS are caused by viruses.
Other diseases are under investigation as to whether they too have a virus as the causative agent, such as the possible
connection between human herpes virus six (HHV6) and neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis and chronic
Some viruses can cause life-long or chronic infections, where the viruses continue to replicate in the body despite the host's
defense mechanisms. This is common in hepatitis B virus and hepatitis C virus infections.
Viruses are an established cause of cancer in humans and other species.
Mycosis is a condition in which fungi pass the resistance barriers of the human or animal body and establish
An example of a fungal infection is Tinea versicolor:
Tinea versicolor is caused by a fungus that lives in the skin of almost all adults. It doesn't usually affect the face.
This fungus produces spots that are either lighter than the skin or a reddish-brown.
Cutaneous mycoses - extend deeper into the epidermis, as well as invasive hair and nail diseases.
The organisms that cause these diseases are called dermatophytes. The resulting diseases are often called
ringworm (even though there is no worm involved) or tinea.
Subcutaneous mycoses - involve the dermis, subcutaneous tissues, muscle, and fascia. These infections are
chronic and can be initiated by piercing trauma to the skin, which allows the fungi to enter. These infections are
difficult to treat and may require surgical interventions such as debridement.
Systemic mycoses due to primary pathogens - originate primarily in the lungs and may spread to many organ
systems. Organisms that cause systemic mycoses are inherently virulent. Generally, primary pathogens that cause
systemic mycoses are dimorphic.
Systemic mycoses due to opportunistic pathogens - infections of patients with immune deficiencies who would
otherwise not be infected.
Examples of immunocompromised conditions include AIDS, alteration of normal flora by antibiotics,
immunosuppressive therapy, and metastatic cancer.
Examples of opportunistic mycoses include Candidiasis, Cryptococcosis and Aspergillosis.
Worms living in humans are also parasites that can cause serious problems.
The most famous are intestinal worms (Taenia worm, roundworms, ...), but other worms (liver fluke, pancreas)
"walk" within us.
Parasitic worms are divided into roundworms and flatworms.
Roundworms are round like earthworms even though they may be as thin as hairs (threadworms, filaria) or
small (like Trichinella). Flatworms are more like leeches. They have a way to attach themselves sometimes with the
head (scolex) like tapeworms, sometimes with a special sucker like flukes.
Four common flukes are: human intestinal fluke, human liver fluke, sheep liver fluke, pancreatic fluke of
cattle. Don't let the terms sheep and cattle mislead you. They are all found in humans.
The Worst Parasite
Fasciolopsis buskii is the fluke (flatworm) that I find in every case of cancer, HIV infection, Alzheimer's, Crohn's disease,
Kaposi's, endometriosis, and in many people without these diseases. Its life cycle involves six different stages.
Note that the adult is the only stage that “normally” lives in the human (and then only in the intestine). Fasciolopsis
depends on a snail, called a secondary host, for part of its life cycle.
But when your body has solvents in it, the other five stages can develop in you!
Certain Internet sites associate zapper and serious illness.
It is not our role to make such assertions.
Illness does not interest us.
We leave it to the experts of the unhealthy states.
We are only interested to feel better, which is highly subjective, and to get rid of as much “invaders” who drain our resources, as possible.
These invaders, who live at our expense, we name them under the generic name of “parasites”.
We experience the influence of the zapper effect
on these parasites, on a hypothetical and empirical basis, which have nothing to do with medical or scientific rules.
