Answering Essential Question Number 2 By Vrishti (J Period)

How do viruses, bacteria and protists impact our lives in both positive and negative ways?

How do viruses, bacteria and protists impact our lives in both positive and negative ways?

Viruses, bacteria, and protists can be considered harmful or harmless. Some of them may even be helpful to some organisms.

Viruses, bacteria, and protists can be considered harmful or harmless. Some of them may even be helpful to some organisms.

Viruses are mostly harmful! If a virus enters a host cell, it begins to reproduce inside the host. Then in it will burst out of the host and infect other cells. Since cells are the basic unit of all organisms, a virus can affect the organism’s health just by entering one of the organism’s cell. Some just enter the cell and reproduce, causing no harm.

Some just enter the cell and reproduce, causing no harm.

But now…scientists are figuring out a way to use the viruses to cure people with diseases by using “Gene Therapy”. Since scientists know what they do well- entering a cell and injecting it’s genetic material- , they’ll take advantage of it. We hope this will be successful in the future!

Bacteria…on the other hand, are mostly helpful! They help us and our environment. For example: -Help humans digest food - Protects us against other harmful bacteria -Clean up oil spills - Help make medicines - Produce some of the vitamins our body needs.

-Help humans digest food

- Protects us against other harmful bacteria

-Clean up oil spills

- Help make medicines

- Produce some of the vitamins our body needs.

Unfortunately, there are bacteria that cause harm to our body. Strep throat, Food Poisoning, Tuberculosis, and other types of illnesses and diseases are caused by bacteria. Anyone can get it through physical contact (person to person) or inhaling infected droplets from the air.

Protists are unicellular or multicellular organisms that live in moist or wet surroundings such as, oceans, swamps, and ponds. Examples of protists are. . . algae, amoeba, slime molds, and paramecium They can be animal- like, plant-like, or fungus-like

algae, amoeba, slime molds, and paramecium

They can be animal- like, plant-like, or fungus-like

There are certain ways that a protist can be helpful. Algae might seem very plant-like, but they do not have stems, roots, or leaves like real plants. They’re also green because they contain chloroplasts that help them photosynthesize. And we all know that when they photosynthesize…they produce OXYGEN! Just what we need. In some Asian countries, they cook seaweed as food. They are considered healthy and delicious to them.

Protists that are animal-like can be helpful and harmful at the same time. There are some parasitic protists can cause harm to some organisms. For example…Malaria is a disease caused by a protist called Plasmodium. People who got Malaria might have been bitten by a mosquito containing plasmodium.

Viruses, bacteria, and protists can make a huge impact in our lives in many different ways… whether its negative or positive.
