Micro Monster Mayhem

Stand to Win Attractive Prizes

It is easy to get confused between bacteria and viruses because they are both microorganisms that can make us fall sick. While antibiotics are effective against bacterial infections, they are totally helpless against viruses. And, in fact, using antibiotics to combat the wrong type of microorganism can lead to unpleasant side effects and added discomfort.
