MY OWN READING


HUMAN NORMAL FLORA


REFLECTION ON THIS TOPIC There are thousand of microbes that live in our body. The difference is; whether they are pathogenic or just normal flora. Microbes can enter our body in early birth, for example Bifidobacteria that is found in breast fed babies. Thus, in this chapter we learn how the infection of microbes takes place in human body, the pathogenicity and the normal flora in different part of our body.


Cont.’ ďƒ’

This topic is interesting, since it involve the study relating to our body. We need to be extra careful when our body injured because microbes causing disease can enter our body through wound. In this chapter, I also learn on the germ free animals. It is interesting ! This animal has no microorganism living in or on it!
