Microbiology: Interesting Facts

So, I was going to post my notes from lecture today but someone else already did that. Instead, I decided to post two interesting facts that I learned today.

1. The Dead sea is indeed not really dead.
Archaea: prokaryotes that are thought to have not changed much for billions of years live there.

2. Archaea probably can't make humans sick because our bodies maintain homeostasis. We have a certain temperature and pH level. Archaea would most likely stay away from us because they like to live in extreme environments. They like it either really really hot or reallly really cold, and living human bodies are neither of those.
