"Biofilm" . . . what do we know?


So today we ask the question . . . what is "Biofilm" . . . and is it "good" or "bad"???

Well . . . "biofilm" in "nature" can be "harmful" or "beneficial" . . . but to humans . . . it's "not" a good thing.

So with that being said . . . what is "biofilm"???

Well . . . the U.S. National Library of Medicine says . . . "biofilm" is a toxic, slimy filmy "plaque" that is "secreted" by microorganisms such as most commonly . . . Enterococcus faecalis, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Streptococcus viridans, E. coli, Klebsiela pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Meaning . . . a "biofilm" forms when certain microorganisms like a bacteria or fungi . . . need to "adhere" to the surface of an object, like say your lungs, which is a moist environment. And with this . . . the slimy, glue-like "biofilm" is secreted to stick the microorganism (bacterial or fungus) to the object . . . like the lungs . . . and it then begins to "reproduce" and grow.

Okay . . . so once this happens . . . this glue-like "plaque", now turns cement-like . . . which creates a "solid" permanent foundation for new "colonies" of the microorganism to grow and build other new colonies.

You see . . . "biofilm" is like a "shell" or "protective coat of armor" for the bad microorganism's survival.

And guess what . . . "cancer" contains "bacterial DNA" and can also secrete "biofilm" around the cancer cells to protect them from "elimination".

Now . . . "biofilm" forms in virtually every imaginable environment on Earth . . . even in our home.

And some examples would be . . . toilet bowls, shower areas, gym restrooms, damp floors, drains and basically any area that stays moist.

But today, we're talking about the human body.

You see . . . "biofilm" can harbor and protect human "infectious" agents in a moist environment of the body. And this protection is like a shell or suit of armor . . .

And that's why some bacteria, fungi, other microorganisms and "yes" even "CANCER" are so "hard" to kill and eliminate.

This protective shell can keep out potential treatments and they are the most dangerous when they invade human cells . . . and with this . . . thousands of deaths are attributed to "biofilm-related" infections and UTIs.

And one of the first places we "see" this "biofilm" . . . is in the mouth.

So tomorrow, we'll talk about that . . .
