What Are Germs?

The term "germs" refers to the microscopic bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa that can cause disease.

Washing hands well and often is the most important thing your family can do to prevent germs from leading to infections and sickness.  
Types of Germs

Bacteria  are tiny, single-celled organisms that get nutrients from their environments. In some cases, that environment is your child or some other living being.

Some bacteria are good for our bodies - they help keep the digestive system in working order and keep harmful bacteria from moving in. Some bacteria are used to produce medicines and vaccines.

But bacteria can cause trouble, too, as with  cavities , urinary tract infections , ear infections, or strep throat . Antibiotics are used to treat bacterial infections.

Viruses can not survive, grow, and reproduce unless a person or an animal puts up rental space. Viruses can only live for a very short time outside other living cells. For example, viruses in infected body fluids left on surfaces like a countertop or toilet seat can live there for a short time, but quickly die unless a live host comes along.

Once they have moved into someone's body, though, viruses spread easily and can make a person sick. Viruses are responsible for some minor sicknesses like colds , common illnesses like the flu, and extremely serious diseases like smallpox or HIV/AIDS .

Antibiotics are not effective against viruses. Antiviral agents have been developed against a small, select group of viruses.

From the Editor
As I recover from shoulder surgery, submissions will continue to be due by FRIDAYS at 5pm. It's very important that you get your submissions in on time, or I won't be able to get them in until the following week. Please keep sending in your submissions, though! I accept submissions from teachers, staff, and parents. If you know of something interesting going on in our community, or want to give a shout out to someone at the school, I'd love to add it to the Buzz. I especially enjoy pictures. Please contact Mrs. Rowley to make sure that we have permission to publish pictures of every student in the picture. Pictures need to be less than 5MB. Thanks so much!
