Definition of Beneficial Bacteria
Beneficial Bacteria are tiny organisms that grow by fission or by forming spores. This means they can practically live anywhere and in all kinds of environments such as soil, hot springs, radioactive waste, and even in the bodies of other organisms. While some bacteria are bad and cause illness and disease, there are far more good strains of bacteria that are harmless and have positive effects. In fact, the world needs beneficial bacteria to fight against all the threatening and bad strains out there! Consequently, plants, animals and humans couldn’t survive without beneficial bacteria!
