what is the most nightmarish bacteria or virus you nrver want?

Of all movies made about virus and bacteria
What is the most nightmarish virus and bacteria you would never?
In 1movie showed a clumsy research worker
Dropped a microscope slide of deady bacteria and
everyone died.
Besides HIV or AIDS I say it be the flesh eating bacteria
Good grief you just literary rout while still alive.

I guess in my opinion it would have to be any strain of Ebola... Terrifying..

Anything from this list will kill a person more quickly and badly than HIV or MRSA: http://www.selectagents.gov/SelectAgent ... sList.html

But one has to go through lots of training, background security check, and dress up like an astronaut to get aceess to those agents. Research sites have vaccines or antibiotics on site to treat accidental exposures too.

I know a highly trained PhD microbiologist who was denied of access to those select agents (by US DOJ), simply because of his religion and birth country.

So the government tries its best to control those agents from getting out to the wrong hands or to public. Chances of a person getting killed by those select agents are not high.

Personally, I worry more about MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, which can cause Necrotising fasciitis) or flu. It is not difficult to find MRSA in hospitals. Hand washing is key.

You would think to upgrade antibodies and white blood cells to kill any viruses and bacteria
And destroy cancer any one can do that would be rich forever..

Try multant strain.
With people think a zombie season in the future ofva virus killing people and reanimated body.
If you have seen they will kill you on YouTube under bacteria
Yeah I can see why .

There have been two discoveries in the bacterial world , one old one and one new, that completely change the picture regarding the virulence or potential virulence of almost any bacterial species. Any list compiled , is already outdated the moment it is compiled.
In the 19th century , C.W.D. or cell wall deficient bacteria , sometimes called L-form bacteria were discovered. Treated as laboratory curiosities for almost 100 years, the advent and overuse of penicillin has encouraged any species who has come in contact with it's various forms to mutate to evermore dependency on the C.W.D. lifestyle. The bacteria, essentially morph into uncharacteristic forms, that can invade tissues, spread rapidly throughout the host, and completely evade detection by conventional methods. Syphilis and Lyme are two, that are having great fun right now, proliferating undetected because their typical morphology is rarer and rarer and they can avoid detection by relying on the c.w.d. form.
Add to this the recent discovery that bacteria can share genetic material laterally and thus transfer their capabilities across species and the list of potentially harmful species expands dramatically.

The work on atypical L-form bacteria was mostly done by the now retired and much awarded, emeritus professor of microbiology,immunology and experimental urology at Tulane U. , Gerald Domingue. Some of his papers and research work are just plain scary and the stuff of science fiction. Staph. Aureus strains, that took 2 years to culture out of the L-form, from tumour sites ; that were synthesizing human trophoblastic hormone, is one example that is almost unbelievable. The implication of this , is that the mutated staph. aureus strain caused the tumour, by forcing random cell division.
It will be many years until mainstream bacteriologists catch up with his 40 years of research. The future is very bright for bacteria.

True
Fact there might be virus or bacteria that deform you and mess you up.
Yet 1 time ago I came down with stetophonic flu.
What is it , you get hit at both ends you the stomach flu and intestine fku at the same
time. Oh yeah you barf and have craps, what can you do
Sit on the john and and have bucket with you.
When it is done with you you feel totally drained and you craw on the floor.
You feel like you got hit byba Mack truck and mugged at the same time


(Stereophonic Flu)
Effects total drain and very weak
In. Slang barfing out in both place stomach and intestine flu at the same time
Recovery lots of rest and juices
