Cause of all disease

Proximal cause of disease

Bacteria is typically the proximal cause of all animal disease. Plants are typically infected with fungus. Fungus can be a cause of disease in animals but it is rare.

Root cause of disease

Bacteria is often the root cause of disease as well however things like deficiencies or overloads of minerals or toxins can be a root cause that causes bacteria to overgrow.

Beneficial bacteria

There are no beneficial bacteria, just bacteria that are less harmful than others. Sometimes these less harmful bacteria can out compete harmful ones leading to a checks and balance system that can be helpful if you do not have access to medicine (herbs). Otherwise with a handful of herbs you would be much better off than infecting yourself with bacteria, and all bacteria cause side effets. Some side effects of probiotics include weight gain, moodiness, depression, and lowered sex hormones. Some bacteria produce things that the host can use, but these things can all be produced by the body already or can easily be found elsewhere in nature. All bacteria produce toxins that will negatively effect the host.

Connection to Virus

Viruses work by causing bacteria to overgrow or die off.

Connection to genetics

Genetics and genetic mutations work by either bacteria causing the mutations with things like DNAse or the body mutates it's own genes in an effort to fight the invader.
