Sleeper cells

I’ve recently been enjoying a podcast on microbiology.

They recently mentioned that some bacterial infections include a tiny fraction of hibernating cells.   The sleepers are unaffected if somebody tries to murder with an antibiotic.  Later when they awaken the antibiotic is gone and the infection returns.

Bad faddish ideas are like this too.
