Microbes like bacteria can grow in any condition and place in the world, either it can be Antarctic or deep in the see. In humans microbes can enter by food, water or air we inhale for breathing. They can also be transfer by some vectors, which, when bite us the microbes get enter in our body in blood. e.g. plassmodium which cause malaria ( a most...

They then use the molecule duplicate themselves and spread around the body. They have no life processes like other microbes, such as bacteria or fungi. They are the 'zombies' of the microscopic world. ...
