MRSA

Do yourself a favor and educate yourself on this "bug": MRSA

After the Wikipedia brief, search the news for the latest outbreaks. "One case of MRSA a day for several months now." Wow. And that's just one doctor speaking!

I recall the warnings about overuse of antibiotics back in my college days in the 1970's. The warnings about creating superbugs were quite clear but went unheeded. It's not that the public ignored the warnings. Certain corporations chose profit over protecting the public. The government failed to inform and regulate because the ever-present lobbyists were on hand to whisper in their corrupt ears that....really....no harm would come of this massive overuse of antibiotics. In fact, we even have antibiotic soaps still in abundance with the public largely uninformed on how their use contributes to the problem.

What are you going to do to help end the corporate stranglehold on our corrupt government here in the United States? Kucinich for President is one solution I'm going to support because I believe Kucinich has a clear understanding of health issues and a compassionate heart to go with that understanding.

Scary stuff - I've been on way to many antibiotics in my life and I've always worried about harboring resistant bacteria.

Glad you like the photo!
