Structure of Bacteria | Cells | Biology | FuseSchool

At about 3.5 billion years old, bacteria are one of the oldest living organisms on earth. They are responsible for a range of diseases including cholera, tuberculosis and the plague amongst many others. But they aren’t all bad; there are trillions of good bacteria living in your gut that are essential to your health. They can produce vitamins, prevent tumour formation, help the immune system fight pathogens and protect against carcinogens, amongst other benefits.
