A bacteriophage is a virus that infects and replicates within bacteria. Bacteriophages are among the most common and diverse entities in the biosphere.
Each bacteriophage evolved to kill just a specific set of bacteria. Because bacteriophage kills with a narrow scope, it could be used to cure an infection without disturbing the community of beneficial bacteria in our body.
One of the densest natural sources for phages is sea water, where up to 9×108 virions per milliliter have been found in microbial mats at the surface.
Bacteriophages were discovered over a decade before penicillin, the most well-known antibiotic, and they have been used for over 90 years as an alternative in the Soviet Union, France, and Central Europe.
Bacteriophages inject DNA into bacteria which then copies itself, makes more of it’s shell with the newly made DNA. Once done the Bacteriophages produces toxic chemicals that rupture the bacterial host from the inside out.C
Since phages consist mostly of nucleic acids and proteins, they are inherently nontoxic.
In an era where antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections are on the rise, you need to know that there is an alternative out there for you and your family if all else fails.
