Historically, bacteria have been the cause of some of the most deadly diseases and widespread epidemics of human civilization.
Smallpox and malaria, diseases caused by other microbes, have killed more humans than bacterial diseases, but diseases such as tuberculosis, typhus, plague, diphtheria, typhoid, cholera, dysentery and pneumonia have taken a large toll of humanity.
