"If you like yogurt, you don’t have to worry about eating ‘too much.’ Women
who have yeast overgrowth/infections in the vagina will also put the yogurt
into their vaginas. It’s very soothing and often cuts the yeast growth
directly." — www.fwhc.org/qa/wh-yeast2.htm

ed, whenthey form poisonous substances, as in the infection of grain by clavicepspurpurea (ergot poisoning), they are distinctly dangerous. The relation of the moulds to the bacteria is shown on p. 458. Likethe higher bacteria, these organisms grow in filaments, but the majority 472 PATHOGENIC MOULDS AND YEASTS. 473 of them show more complicated structure in possessing a more dis-tinct wall and a definite nucleus and in their reproductive organs.Each filament is termed a hypha. The hyphse branch and grow intoa dense network called mycelium. In the lower forms each hypha isa single cell, septa only occurring when fructification begins, while inthe higher forms the filaments are composed of rows of cells. Mostof the varieties form endospores in special spore sacks or sporangia,produced by the end swelling of a hypha (Fig. 153). In certain va-rieties a primitive sexual process has been observed, a conjugation oftwo cells with the formation of a zygospore, from which a sporangium Fig. 154

Sporesmay also be produced in so-called gummse (chlamydospores), whichare swollen portions, segmented in the course of a hypha. (Fig. 153).Finally spores may be formed as conidia (Fig. 154). The common moulds grow easily, especially in an acid medium,hence they are often found on fruit. The more pathogenic varietiesgrow with more difficulty. Among the common moulds, variousspecies of mucor and of aspergillus have been reported pathogenic-for man. Paltauf reported the case of a man who died after enteriti.swith secondary peritonitis. The autopsy showed multiple abscesses inl)rain and lungs, besides the lesions in the intestines and peritoneum,in all of which a species of mucor was found. Two other cases ofprimary mucor infection in humans were re})orted by Furbringer.A number of species of mucor have been found in ear and
