Dead bacteria bodies?

What happens when bacteria dies in the body? They cant live forever right? So how does that effect us when they decompose?

    Depends where they are in the body. If they're in the gut lumen, they just come out when you take a dump (a lot of live ones go out the same way).  If they're actually inside your body, they get gobbled up by macrophages, cells of the innate immune system, which under normal conditions act as the body's "garbage collectors."

    People in Haiti have no septic or drain lines. In fact most have no bathroom. One time a week a company called SOILS comes and empties your waste bucket for $1.  They dump it in a tank truck that dumps it in a tank. They put in compost, small sticks and leaves and dead grass. The bacteria is so active the temperature can get up to 180 F so they have to water it down. One year later all the bacteria is dead. They bag it and sell it for fertilizer. It looks like bags of used coffee grounds. People used to get raped and robbed using the bathroom outside.  now they have a nice toilet inside with a bucket inside it. --very sanitary

    Your body's immune system will detect the debris and send in troops to clean up the garbage.

    bacteria doesn't die unless it is killed. it spreads outward.

    They are generally included in our excrement.

    They are so tiny it doesn’t decompose with toxins. They are not made of tissue
