From Ancient Greek Î¼Î¹ÎºÏÏŒÏ‚ (mikros, “small") and Î²Î¯Î¿Ï‚ (bios, “life").
- The soils in which the berries were grown were also healthier, showing greater microbe growth.
- The danger from this source is remote, as the microbe does not form spores within the animal body.
- In the majority of instances, however, no local indication could be found marking the point at which the microbe was implanted."
- In process of time it became clear, however, that the worse the condition of a filter bed, in the then general acceptation of the term, the better it was as a microbe filter; that is to say, it was not until a fine film of mud and microbes had formed upon the surface of the sand that the best results were obtained.
- The high temperature characteristic of this condition is no doubt injurious to the body itself, but it is frequently more so to the microbe which has invaded the organism; and thus fever, instead of now being regarded as a morbid condition to be suppressed by every means in our power, is considered to be a reaction of the organism tending to protect it by destroying the infection.
