I'm M. avium.
I'm an acid fast bacteria with a waxy coat.
I'm part of the
Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare complex.

I cause a lung infection that's like tuberculosis.
I like people with weak immune systems, because I can spread better.
I'm found in alot of people with HIV and AIDS.
In little kids, I get into the lymph glands and swell them up.

Jaja, your blog is so funny and very interesting, all bacterias are very well characterized and the information that you present is very easy for understanding, especially, for people that don't know anything about microbiology.

Good luck and greetings from PerĂº.

Interesting that TB only scored one comment. People don't know how bad it is and how unprepared we are. Even in London. Scary!
