Bacteria Questions and Answers (Q&A)

Pneumonia simply means a chronic or acute inflammation of the lungs caused by a virus, bacteria, and other types of micro-organisms. Pneumonia is in three stages, mild, moderate, and severe pneumonia. Mild pneumonia occurs at the early stage of the condition. At this point, you don't feel too much pain. You can only be seeing symptoms like cough, general body pain, fever, expectoration, weakness, and others. The second level is moderate pneumonia.

This occurs when pneumonia at the mild level is left unattended to. The condition becomes a little bit complex, and different kinds of symptoms that are more severe than what mild pneumonia produces. Oxygen content in the body is reduced during moderate pneumonia. Pneumonia is not life-threatening at this stage. Severe pneumonia, on the other hand, is when the condition has deteriorated to something that cannot be controlled very easily. The patient experiences more severe pain compared to what moderate pneumonia produces.

Let's see how far my knowledge stretches

Bacteria are the largest of all the microorganism’s kingdom. Eubacteria are also referred to as true bacteria. They are unicellular prokaryotic organisms, which are microscopic in nature. They do not possess a nucleus, or cellular organelles such as ribosomes, mitochondria and etc. Cyanobacteria are bacteria which are blue-green in color. They have a nucleus, and also slightly different in modification due to their functioning. One of the subgroups of Eubacteria is the Cyanobacteria. The Cyanobacteria are bacteria that obtain energy from photosynthesis and produce oxygen as a byproduct.

These organisms convert the nitrogen obtained from the atmosphere into ammonia and nitrates and make these substances present in the soil for the utilization of plants. The Eubacteria kingdom, which happens to be the largest of the microorganisms, is divided into five phyla, which are the chlamydia, cyanobacteria, spirochetes, proteobacteria, and gram-positive bacteria. The cell wall of Eubacteria is rigid and made of proteoglycans, and they lack chloroplasts and mitochondria.

The outermost layer of a bacteria cell is called a capsule. The capsule majorly consists of polysaccharides, and the nature of polysaccharides are they are not easily washed away with water. Thus, bacteria has its power to cause diseases and sickness.

The capsule plays a big role in causing diseases of a bacteria as it strongly protects the bacteria cells from being engulfed by eukaryotic cells. One maybe immune to one type of capsule but it does not mean that he or she is immune to all other types. That is why it is important to wash our hands with soap and water in order to avoid getting ill from disease-causing bacteria.

The correct answer to this question is B, bed rest. This treatment involves a voluntary time of lying in bed. As of 1999, a review found no benefits of bed rest, but still today, there are many cases where this treatment is used.

20% of women in the United States have bed rest to delay or stop early labor, complications in the cervix, and vaginal bleeding. It has also been used to help those suffering from back pain, Sydenham chorea, deep vein thrombosis, and ulcers. Modern research has found bed rest ineffective and in some cases, making the condition worse.

No, germs cannot rule out each other however, they could delay the onset of the effect of other germs. This is due to the carrier of the germs thus the more effective germ will make you notice its effect first and this does not mean that the other germ will go unnoticed and it will also do its respective damage.
