   &lt;p class="Indent00" id="xpp-2014582732321794086-1"&gt;The
diseases and many kinds of environmental problems caused by bacteria
are actually population control problems. Small numbers of bacteria
cause little harm. However, when the population increases, their
negative effects are multiplied. Despite large investments of time and
money, scientists have found it difficult to control bacterial
*populations*. Three factors operate in favor of the bacteria: their
reproductive rate, their ability to form resistant stages, and their
ability to mutate and produce strains that resist antibiotics and
other control agents.&lt;/p&gt;
   &lt;p class="Indent01" id="xpp-2014582732321794086-2"&gt;Under
ideal conditions, some bacteria can grow and divide every 20 minutes.
If one bacterial cell and all its offspring were to reproduce at this
ideal rate, in 48 hours there would be 2.2 &amp;times; 10 43 cells. In
reality, bacteria cannot achieve such incredibly large *populations*,
