MRSA Bacteria

Previously, I told you about rapper T.I.'s niece, Kamaya, who was sickened with a serious skin infection. According to Kamaya's social media accounts, she was hospitalized for a week with a boil inside her nose. The infection started out as an innocuous pimple inside her nostril. The pimple developed into a boil, then into an abscess. Thankfully, Ms. Harris has recovered from her ordeal.

But others weren't as fortunate. Three patients died of pneumonia caused by a Staph infection within days of each other at a hospital in London, Ky., USA Today reports. One man, Eric Allen, 39, was admitted with a serious form of pneumonia caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA. Allen was described as "coughing up bits of lung tissue" before his organs failed and he died.

Days later, another patient, a 54-year-old man, was admitted to the hospital with similar symptoms. He died within 72 hours. A 28-year-old woman was dead on arrival. She, too, was diagnosed with "necrotizing" pneumonia, caused by MRSA. The patient's lung tissue had decayed within hours, a condition known as necrosis.

Doctors were alarmed at the number of new cases of MRSA pneumonia killing healthy people within hours or days.

"What really bothered me was the rapidity of their deterioration, a matter of hours," says Muhammad Iqbal, a pulmonologist who chairs the infection control committee at Saint Joseph-London hospital. "We were worried that something was spreading across the community."

MRSA bacteria was initially the scourge of hospitals and clinics. But since the 1980s, the bacteria have emerged into the community.

MRSA lives naturally on the skin and in the nostrils of about 30% of the population. The infection usually doesn't cause problems until the bacteria gets inside cuts, insect bites or abrasions.

Newly diagnosed cases of MRSA infections, ranging from minor skin boils to deadly pneumonia, claims upwards of 20,000 lives per year.

"It's not about winning or losing the battle (against MRSA), it's that the battle is shifting," says Ramanan Laxminarayan, a Princeton University scholar who heads the Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy. "You're seeing people who are young and healthy getting this (in the community), and it's very serious. ... And it's not picked up in the statistics."

    Unless, the FDA finds that antibacterial soaps aren't preventing us from being exposed to germs. Hopefully they don't find that triclosan and triclocarban, may be aiding the growth of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, as well as disrupting hormone levels :bite:

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Gee funny you say that. There was an article TODAY on it. Bye Ashy.

    Manufacturers of antibacterial hand soap and body wash will be required to prove their products are more effective than plain soap and water in preventing illness and the spread of infection, under a proposed rule announced Monday by the Food and Drug Administration.

    Those manufacturers also will be required to prove their products are safe for long-term use, the agency said.

    "Millions of Americans use antibacterial hand soap and body wash products," the agency said in a statement. "Although consumers generally view these products as effective tools to help prevent the spread of germs, there is currently no evidence that they are any more effective at preventing illness than washing with plain soap and water.

    "Further, some data suggest that long-term exposure to certain active ingredients used in antibacterial products -- for example, triclosan (liquid soaps) and triclocarban (bar soaps) -- could pose health risks, such as bacterial resistance or hormonal effects."

    Who really knows. Most probably using the investigation for a reason to leave him off. Some probably don't think a Freshman should even be considered. Could be because he's black.

    Past winners.

    Winston - 115 voters left him off their ballots (~12%)
    Manziel - 99 voters left him off their ballots (~11%)
    Griffin - 218 voters left him off their ballots (~23%)
    Newton - 144 voters left him off their ballots (~16%)
    Ingram - 311 voters left him off their ballots (~34%)
    Tebow - 121 voters left him off their ballots (~13%)

    Trash talking boxer Adrien Broner got his ass beat and his welterweight title stripped in a stunning loss to Marcos Maidana this Saturday ... but TMZ Sports has learned, there's now a full-blown investigation into allegations of cheating.

    Sources close to "the Problem" tell us ... the Texas Boxing Commission is now analyzing video of the fight which some say shows Maidana taking what looks like a pill during the WBA welterweight championship fight last Saturday.

    This happened to my neighbor about a month and a half ago. He was young and healthy and just one day got sick and died. He was MRSA and pneumonia and no one could figure out how he got it. So sad.
