Bacteria from a coin. Colored scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of bacteria cultured from a english one pound coin. A study that tested a random selection of coins and notes of all denominations discovered the presence of 19 kinds of bacteria, including two life threatening bacteria associated with antibiotic resistant superbugs - Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Enterococcus faecium (VRE). Bacteria associated with MRSA was discovered on the 2p, 5p, 10p, �1 and �2 coins, as well as the �10, �20 and �50 notes. MRSA can lead to boils, skin infections, food poisoning and toxic shock syndrome. The bacteria Enterococcus faecium was found on the 2p, 5p and 10p coins as well as the �10 note. This bacteria can cause blood, abdomen, skin and urinary tract infections. Magnification: x2600 when printed at 10cm wide.Bacteria from a coin.

Bacteria from a human beard. Colored scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of bacteria cultured from a human beard. A European study has found that the average man's beard is more replete with human-pathogenic bacteria than the dirtiest part of a dog's fur. There are around 1000 species of bacteria from 19 phyla found on human skin. Skin flora is usually non-pathogenic, and either commensal (not harmful to their host) or mutualistic (offer a benefit).

Anthrax bacteria, computer illustration. Anthrax bacteria (Bacillus anthracis) are the cause of the disease anthrax in humans and livestock. They are Gram-positive spore producing bacteria arranged in chains (streptobacilli). Many cells have a central spore. Anthrax spores, created by the bacteria, occur in soil in most parts of the world and are dormant until they infect a host.Anthrax bacteria, computer illustration.

Illustration of Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) coccoid bacteria. Staphylococcus aureus is a Gram-positive bacterium that causes food poisoning, toxic shock syndrome and skin and wound infections such as scalded skin syndrome, scarlet fever, erysipelas and impetigo. Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections that are acquired by persons who have not been recently hospitalized or had a medical procedure are known as CA-MRSA (Community associated-MRSA) infections. CA-MRSA infections in the community are usually manifested as skin infections, such as pimples and boils, and occur in otherwise healthy people.Illustration of Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) coccoid bacteria.

Illustration of Spirochaete Borrelia bacteria, the cause of Lyme disease. These spirochaete (spiral-shaped) bacteria are passed to humans through the bites of infected Ixodes sp. ticks. Symptoms of Lyme disease include skin lesions, muscle pain, neurological and cardiac abnormalities, and arthritis. Treatments include antibiotic and corticosteroid drugs.Illustration of Spirochaete Borrelia bacteria, the cause of Lyme disease.

Illustration of Treponema pallidum bacteria, which causees syphilis. Syphilis is usually sexually transmitted, but may also pass from an infected pregnant woman to her unborn child (congenital syphilis). The last of three stages of syphilis is the most severe and can cause damage to the heart, blood vessels, brain and spinal cord. Treatment with penicillin drugs is effective if administered during the early stages.Illustration of Treponema pallidum bacteria, which causees syphilis.

Illustration of Staphylococcus epidermidis bacteria. Staphylococcus epidermidis is part of normal human skin flora (commensal). It can also be found in the mucous membranes and in animals. Although S. epidermidis is not usually pathogenic, patients with compromised immune systems are at risk of developing infection. These infections are generally hospital-acquired.Illustration of Staphylococcus epidermidis bacteria. Staphylococcus epidermidis is part of normal human skin flora (commensal).
