It affects short-term memory because it is stored as transient neural excitations in the hippocampus or amygdala (for emotional memory).

From wikipedia: Based on the growth profiles under different O2 concentrations, the Bifidobacterium species were classified into four classes: O2-hypersensitive, O2-sensitive, O2-tolerant, and microaerophilic. The primary factor responsible for aerobic growth inhibition is proposed to be the product...
1. An overproduction of a particular product means that the cell is allocating energy and resources to produce what is not necessary, or what might even be toxic in higher quantities, at the cost of producing other substances that may be more vital for the cell's survival. 2. Most likely this is the...
