|aBacteria truly are on a rampage again. They've become immune to the best of our antibiotics, rendering once treatable infections deadly. And new strains have evolved, such as E. coli and the bizarre, flesh-eating group A strep. But bacteria do more than make us cringe: They can be helpful, aiding in meal digestion, air- and water-pollution control, and even the treatment of muscle disorders and wrinkles. Explore our uneasy relationship with these wily microbes, and come away with insights that will give your life sciences lesson plans a healthy shot in the arm.
|aIntended audience: junior and senior high students.
