The Good Bacteria When people talk about bacteria—they’re usually thinking about how to get rid of it. But not all bacteria is bad and in fact there are lots of good bacteria. They’re called probiotics and it’s a hot area of research. Probiotics help us digest food, some say they’ll help you kick that stubborn cold, and could they really help colicky babies? Scientists are still trying to figure out how bacteria might be helpful--find out what’s what in this growing health trend. Join host Anne Glausser Monday at 9 on the Sound of Ideas.
