Scientists discover bacteria go into 'ZOMBIE mode' to survive hostile environments, in breakthrough that could help to fight antibiotic-resi
Some bacteria appear to go into a zombie-like state in order to survive extreme conditions.

A new study has identified a previously unknown survival strategy in the single-celled organisms that could help to explain why infections re-emerge after treatment.

In this mode, the bacteria are not asleep, but instead demonstrate processes that have been slowed down to the extreme while still remaining somewhat active

In a study published to Nature Communications, researchers investigated the survival strategies of the non-pathogenic bacterium, Bacillus subtilis.

The bacteria were starved for long periods of time, and the team observed their response.

While bacteria are known to form what are known as endospores under stressful conditions, which allow them to ‘sleep’ within a protective coating, the specimens in the study represented a variant that could not do this as the result of a mutation.

They don't really care whether the truth gets out, because the public no longer knows what's meant by "the truth."

Well, I mean, no one can tell the difference anymore between what's real and what's fake.

Anyway, the point is, I can tell you all of this, right out in the open, because it doesn't matter who knows about it. They won't know whether to believe it or not.-

A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.
