Non Pathogenic Microorganisms?


Non pathogenic (non-pathogenic) microorganisms are those that are incapable of causing diseases. An example of a non-pathogenic microorganism is non-pathogenic E. coli that naturally lives in the large intestine and does not cause disease. The opposite of non-pathogenic microorganisms is, of course, pathogenic bacteria which are those that cause bacterial infections. An example of a pathogenic microorganism is mycobacterium tuberculosis which causes the disease tuberculosis. Another example is streptococcus, salmonella, shigella, campylobacter, and pseudomonas. Pathogenic bacteria are responsible for infections such as typhoid fever and syphilis.
