This is in contrast to anaerobic bacteria which do not require oxygen. More on those later.
This is a broad search for Aerobic Bacteria, we attempted to find any and all bacteria that could be present in our oil.
Unsurprisingly the test came up negative.
That said, some tests will show amounts of bacteria living in the plants or extracts.
Bacteria can cause infections that could lead to the formation of pus, or spread into your bloodstream.
Getting sick would be the least of your worries though, as bacterial infections can range from dangerous to fatal.
In the case of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis, bacteria will proliferate in your system, causing the disease Tuberculosis. Or the Pseudomonas Aeruginosa bacterium, which normally targets people with weak immune systems. Found virtually everywhere in the world, infections of Pseudomonas Aeruginosa are characterized by inflammation. Should this inflammation happen in the lungs or vitals, it can prove fatal.
Finally, some bacteria don’t actually cause infections! Rather, they produce poisonous chemicals.
If you find a microorganism isn’t harmful because it attacks, it may be because it produces poison as a byproduct of living.
