    it's a real common bacteria, it's just a crapshoot if it gets in you or not. if so, you effectively win the bacterial jackpot, and it kinda sucks for you.

    i doubt you will be 'looking out' for bacteria, unless you have microscopes for eyes.



    that really is pretty disgusting though, its sounds like pretty much one side of her body was removed to attempt to get rid ouf it. eeugh!

    The most horrific story I have seen on a TV program recently involved a pregnant woman in a Florida hospital delivering her baby. Somehow she developed toxic shock syndrome and then flesh eating bacteria was also a problem. In order to safely deliver her baby and save the mother's life, doctors had to perform a quadruple amputation. It was utterly devastating to see.

    Just goes to show you how precious and fragile life really is.

    Virus and bacteria are some of mankinds worst enemies.

    Oh man. I think flesh eating disease is the scariest thing to get in this world. Things like AIDS would seem "mild" in comparison. Absolutely horrific. :(
