Very intriguing article, PR. I related to part of it since a few years ago I bought an ionic toothbrush. It works at lifting plaque off the teeth. I was not that familiar with biofilms. Recently Epictetus linked an article about these bacteria and vitamin D receptors. The little I understand is that these bacteria are exceedingly powerful and now that the blood brain barrier can break down, they are a menace.

In some ways, not that surprising. An awful lot of the things that higher organisms do are done in some form by lower organisms. Good old repurposing!

And still interesting! :-)
