Hmmm... I probably shouldn't.
If you want to look at it another way, by applying "whatever" you are selecting for certain strains of microbes. It is a strategy that can be used to your advantage
Find the guys that are most prevelant at a toxic spill and chances are they like the toxin as food.
microbes wear a lot of different hats depending on the trigger, food or environment, they produce enzymes, motabolites, slime, etc. If we can select for certain ones get good to great populations and use known triggers to our advantage............well...... it is often to our advantage
