	The public perception is that germs are bad and to be 
avoided. Most-about 1% of microorganisms-are not pathogenic. Most 
examples of beneficial or benign microorganisms are bacteria. What 
about viruses? Are there examples of viruses having a positive 
effect? Benign might be difficult to document.

Cheers,

Martin
