Rethinking bugs (part 2)

Thinking Outside the Box bugs“Last month, I wrote about my observation that bacteria seem to be ‘trending’ at the moment, and explained my hope that their current popularity might have a part to play in improving care for women and babies. In that article, I questioned how bacteria are portrayed, both in everyday life and in theories of health and disease, and asked whether there may be potential benefit in understanding that our relationship with bacteria is not simple or easily summed up. In this article, I am going to look at some specific examples of how, if we were open to rethinking and embracing our complex relationship with bacteria, we might be able to move our knowledge forward.”

Thanks as usual to The Practising Midwife, I have just uploaded this article, Rethinking Bugs (part 2).
