What Are Germs? Germs are tiny living things that can make us sick. They can make plants and animals sick too. But some of them are good and useful. We need to use a microscope to see them. Germ Under A Microscope Germs do not make their own food. They get their food from their environment. Environment means the surrounding or where we live. Bad germs produce toxins which is something like poison. The toxin can make us sick. So when bad germs get into our body; they eat our nutrients, reproduce and make us sick. Influenza A(H1N1) and AIDS are caused by germs. There are 4 types of germs: 1)Fungi (fun-guy) 0 Mushrooms are fungi 2)Bacteria (back-teer-ee-uh) 0 Bacteria That Look Like Capsules 3)Protozoa (pro-toh-zoh-uh) Protozoa That Look Like Capsules With Green Leaves Inside 4)Viruses (vy-rus-iz) A Virus That Looks Like A Spider With Jewel Head Fungi are the biggest and viruses are the smallest. Germs love to grow in dirty places and spreads very fast after a big flood, tsunami, earthquake and wars. After natural disasters there will be cholera outbreak and other diseases from bacteria infections. To fight germs we have to keep ourselves and our environment clean. Always wash our hands using anti-bacteria soap and clean water, eat healthy food and drink a lot of water, juices, tea, herb tea and other healthy drinks.

Under a microscope germs can look very beautiful.
There are millions of germs on our skin, mouth, and digestive tract. They are good in their original sites, but when they are moved from their original site, they can become very harmful. An example is the skin bacteria…when they get into our blood, they can cause septicemia…
Dear Uncle Azahar,
I know that there are millions of germs inside and outside our body. But I have not learn that good germs can be harmful when they move from their original site. Thanks Uncle Azahar. Uncle Azahar had taught me so many important things.
