Default When is two graduate degrees worthwhile?



I know I want to get my PhD in microbiology, but I was wondering how useful it would be to get a second degree like a masters in biochemistry?

Of course getting a PhD in the first place is not a simple task, but let's say you already have a BS in biochemistry in addition to your PhD in microbiology. Would getting a masters in biochemistry be a worthwhile endeavor or a waste of time?
How about a BS in biochemistry with a PhD in microbiology...minor in biochemistry?

I plan to be a microbiologist, but I would like to understand microbiology down to the molecular and chemical level.
