  • Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

    You like our art and want to put it on your wall? Look no further:

  • The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

  • I can see the headlines now, "BACTERIOPHAGES GAVE MY SON AUTISM!"

  • So basically, the deadliest entity on our planet teams up with the second deadliest being on our planet.

  • Spare a thought for those unfortunate good bacteria who lost their lives in the war

  • Hopefully the world will nerf this in the next update


  • I laugh when i see people taking antibiotics to fight viral infections

  • 1:54

  • It's crazy how youtube has evolved over the past years. This content is better than content we see in movies and TV shows lol, and this is totally free content. I think youtube is going to overtake traditional media, it really is changing the entire way people consume content. I think your channel could a pioneer of the future, at least in the animation circle. You are the Casey Neistat of animations.

  • Would you rather:

  • Ok so it’s likE

  • Eukaryotes. That's the type of cells humans have of the 3 that exist, along with bacteria (prokaryotes) and virus. The bigger the difference between our cells, the easier it is for medicine to identify and kill. Cancer cells are also eukaryotic which is why it's so difficult for us to kill it without killing our healthy cells. Also, antibiotics are literal in name: They only kill bacteria, not viruses or eukaryotes. This is why you go to the doctor to identify what you have, esp if the same kind of illness can be caused by both germs, to know when to use antibiotics or not. Biology class can also be a great Health class.

  • The Bacteriophage is the powerhouse of destruction.

  • I can already see people protesting anti bacteriophages

  • Everyone gangsta until the bacteriophage start targeting them.
