Weird fact: As I was studying yesterday this type of phage for a test, I kept thinking: “why we couldn’t use them to kill bacterial infections.” And then I see that is already a thing

Imagine in the far future when using phages have gone mainstream and they evolve to convert human cells and people just started bursting and releasing more of those phages that spread and bursted more people

Wait so we use the deadliest virus (Phage) to keep the deadliest parasite (human) alive. Somehow nature fucked up with us, killing everything that could harm us. Hopes up for something like the dinosaurs had...

Call me stupid but what would happen with the bacteriophages after they killed the bacteria in a person would they just stand there until another comes around or start attacking the good bacteria?

Hi ich bin deutscher und habe gehört ihr eigentlich ein deutscher Kanal Seit, was euren deutschen Namen erklärt. Ich liebe eure Videos und finde es schade, dass die deutschen eure Videos nicht würdigen. Ihr könnt wunderbar animieren und wirklich geil Dinge erklären. Macht weiter so und ich finde jedes euerer Themen unglaublich interessant. Daumen hoch

So if these were injected into your body would there be a possibility for them to attack other bacteria in your body? Also would you only need one injection or will your body target the virus and kill it off?

Won't phages evolve to infect our cells? That will be better for them. You said that they are evolving, so why wont they evolve to kill us?
