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.

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?
