Hello - In our biology class we experimented with bacteria to make cheese curds and yogurt. Both tasted gross but we did it to learn about different bacteria. My teacher said that streptococcus is important for making the milk curdle, but I also heard once that streptococcus is the one that can make your skin fall off and kill you. So why can we eat cheese and yogurt and not get sick? Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. You guys are great! :) Lis
Re: Why doesn't streptococcus kill you when you eat it?
