Too much of a good thing is always bad for you, whether the you in question is a human being (haven't we all suffered ill effects of over indulgence at some time or another?) or a near-invisible microbe. Both salt and sugar are good...
How salt and sugar prevent microbial spoilage
By: Effie Moore Salem
The method of sugar and salt preservation of food is basically done in the same way, chemically speaking, in that water withdrawal is the main result, although the way this comes about is different. The type of food preserved is usually of a different variety...

The studying of parasites, bacteria, and viruses, plus their tolls on the human system, is known as microbiology. The many divisions of the microbiology study branch out, some lead into deeper study of parasites, parasitology, and others go forward in a field of viruses, called...

Salt and sugar both kill microbes by causing water to exit through their cell membrane, causing dehydration. This phenomenon is a quintessential example of the intersection of physics, chemistry, biology, and "everyday life". Notice how nature likes to remain "in balance". For example, balloons deflate...
The relationship between microbiology and disease
By: Effie Moore Salem
Microbiology is the study of microorganisms, the smallest living creatures. There are many different varieties of these and some are beneficial in that they do good works for humanity and others are bad and cause disease. Among the many different groups are protozoa, algae, fungi...

Microbiology: The study of microorganismsMicrobiology is the scientific study of microorganisms, which are unicellular or cell-cluster microscopic organisms. These microorganisms include eukaryotes, which have a nucleus, and prokaryotes which do not have a nucleus. Eukaryotes are known as fungi and protists, and prokaryotes are bacteria...

We study microbiology because bacteria, viruses and fungi are the leading cause of death in the history of mankind.Tiny and virtually invisible microbes studied by microbiologists have had a tremendous impact on society since the earliest days of recorded history. Bacteria, viruses and fungi...
