Some germs actually are good for you but that doesn`t mean they`re all good for you. The four main types of germs are bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa. In the article Can Germs Be Good For You? They focused on bacteria. Your body contains over 100 trillion bacterial cells. You have ten times the number of bacterial cells than human cells. One of your bacterial cells is one-thousandth the size of one of your human cells. Sometimes some of your bacterial cells can cause you to get sick every once in a while. But most of your bacterial cells keep your body balanced and healthy though. The good bacteria lives in your intestines and they help make the best use of the nutrients you eat in your food. Then whats leftover that your body doesnt need, you put it into the toilet. Some researchers think that good bacteria may help prevent diabestes and asthma. The good bacteria help make the immune system function correctly and may even hold off cancer, even bacteria living on your skin helps prevent infections. Scientists also found out that medicines and vaccines are made from bacteria.

My name is Emily. I have two dogs. One is a shitzu named Zoey she is a four year old female. And the other is a Cairn Terrior named Max he is a two year old male. I also have one male betta fish. We are also going to get some chickens soon. The last and final animal I have is my little brother named Nolan he is a eight year old male. When I grow up I would like to be a domestic veternarian not a farm one. The reason why I want to be a DOMESTIC veternarian is becuase I love dogs. So hopefully I won`t have to deal with the cats a lot. Not that I don`t like cats it`s just that I have never had one before so I don`t know how to care of them. Also, when I grow up I`m gonna have two dogs, I`m not sure what kind yet, and two to three kids. If I have three I want two girls and one boy. If I have two kids I want one boy and one girl. I love the sport soccer and I also do tae kwon do, and teach these cute 6 year old kids. That is ME and what i am going to do when I grow up!
