Is staying home harming your child’s immune system by making them more susceptible to other diseases?
A theory known as the “old friends” hypothesis suggests that exposure to harmless microbes that have co-evolved with humans help to train the developing immune system.

Our ancestor's microbes made it possible to digest, detoxify the foods they were eating in the new areas they went too.
It might be possible for bacteria to feed on electricity and carbon dioxide to produce value-added compounds like biofuels.
Microbes react very quickly — within five to seven years — to even slight changes in the climate.
The bacteria were found to grow in temperatures up to 60 degrees and in areas with high salt content.
