That Fulminating MRSA
What's MRSA? Why Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus of course. It's that gram positive bacteria in the news lately because there's so many infections in the population, many caught in the community setting and many in the hospital. When someone dies from it the newspapers find it good fodder for running a health story. They'll generally say the best prevention is good and frequent handwashing. What they don't report is it's advisable to markedly limit refined sugar intake (an immune suppressant) and to be reminded that stress and vaccines also weaken your cell-mediated immunity.
