    So Bacteriophages are similar to Toxoplasma, in which they reproduce inside of living beings as kind of parasites, but hunt down an enemy that is as well ours. The only fear I have is that, like stated in the video (Which was AWESOME!), Bacteriophages can evolve over time, and they need something to feast and continue living, otherwise they would succumb to self-genocide. It could end up destroying us from the inside, and there is, as far as this video has (or thus hasn't) told us, no natural superior enemy. But another worst case scenario would be that we have to inject a ton of bacterias inside of our body to sustain the Bacteriophages hunger and need for Evolving, thus we could live a life without any of the bacterias caused diseases in exchange of intravenous or even simple pills containing bacterias. That would be straight-up sci-fi horror stuff.

    But what if the phages out evolved us? Do we need to evolve too?

    Don’t worry, if it it has the word “VIRUS” or “DEADLY” or if it’s in a needle there will be some people who will be against it.

    Might be a silly question but; in the video it stated that phages cannot harm humans but what if continually injecting them inside us to fight bacteria eventually induces evolution in the phages allowing them to harm us? if that's possible of course

    When I was a kid I used to imagine that bacteriophages were created by some extra terrestrial intelligence as a way to encourage evolution of intelligent life on earth.

    My brain might have been damaged by an overdose of StarTrek and Arthur C Clarke novels.

    So what happenes when we've been using phages for so long that they develope ways to attack human cells and we get an even worse enemy. Remember that the enemy of our enemy can still be our potential enemy.

    So, we're also getting better at reading and writing genetic data. Is it possible to program Bacteriophages to infect cancer cells?

    Is there a possibility that the phages kill other bacteria than making superbugs immune to antibiotics?
