Welcome to the Bacteria Channel
Bacteria can cause conditions such as scarlet fever, strep throat, gonorrhea, and bacterial meningitis. If you've ever had a bacterial infection, you've already witnessed how a certain type of bacteria can affect your health. You may also have questions about how the bacteria made you sick in the first place. For example, how are bacteria transmitted? How do they cause infections in the body? And how do antibiotics work to treat bacterial illnesses?
Welcome to the Bacteria Health Channel by eMedTV. On this channel, you will find a collection of articles discussing the different types of bacteria, the diseases they can cause, and much more. Whether you would like to know more about how bacterial infections are treated -- or are about to travel to a country that where there is an increased risk of bacterial infection, this channel can provide you with the knowledge you need. We hope that you will find this health channel to be a valuable resource.
