"Good guys" and "bad guys"
by Angeline Booher / June 5, 2006 7:48 AM PDT

I know we don't generally think of bacteria as being "good guys", and necessary for our lives.

I had no idea there were so many different ones "working for us".

Sort of related, but several years ago a caution was given about us being "too clean". For instance, the overuse of anti-microbial products to wash our hands killed the good ones that live on our skin and fight the bad ones, thus making the bad ones stronger over time.

I know of one patient we saw, a teen age boy, who developed a small infection at the base of each hair on his legs. He was taking so many showers, and was "too clean". Cutting down on the showers solved the problem.

Sure makes us look more closely at our diet.

Now that I'm old, I do take much more notice. Fortunately, I've always liked whole grains and other foods that have more "nondigestible" material.

Still, it is amazing how we have such loyal protectors "built in". Perhaps the research will discover how we can best help our "little friends" do their job.

Sure does give me more respect for them! Happy

Made me wonder
by Dragon / June 6, 2006 6:44 AM PDT

if maybe a little cocktail, occassionally, as a booster, might be a good idea.

BTW, I was really surprised about the Archaea part. I thought they just lived hundreds to thousands of feet underground where nothing else lived.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
