Bacteria, Virus, Fungus

fungiDo you know the difference between a bacteria and a virus? How about a virus and a fungus? Do you throw all of these words around interchangably, or maybe just call them all “germs?”

Well, germs they certainly all are. Mayo Clinic has a great article talking about what all these infectious little critters are, and it is good information for anyone to know, and important for those of us who have dealt with infectious diseases in our lives. The terminology is important if for no other reason than effective communication with your doctors and caregiving staff. The best part is that this article is easy to read and understand and is chock full of great information and examples, so if you are confused as to what a “germ” actually is, don’t miss this.
