Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water
First there was west nile and sars and mad cow and swine flu. Now when you thought you could sneak around and avoid sudden death, another nasty has come back to rear its' ugly head. Scientists have checked the beaches and waters on the coast of Washington state and found MRSA. You remember that from a few years back as the flesh eating bacteria that can kill you in a few short days if it's not treated. My guess is that with all the antibiotics that are used by a population in the millions that this is working its' way into the water supply and the result is super resistant bugs.
