Grows on Stuff


Has your doctor ever taken a swab of the back of your throat to check for "strept throat"? About 200 species of bacteria can cause diseases in humans, including these streptococcus (coccus means round-shaped). There are several kinds of streptococcus, including the ones that cause strept throat, ones that cause a type of pneumonia, and the ones now known as "flesh-eating bacteria".
