Phoenix-area hospitals fight highly toxic 'supergerm'


www.azcentral.com

Maricopa County health officials have confirmed that a relatively new, extremely toxic strain of bacteria has been found in hospitals and other health-care facilities in the Valley.

The germ, known as Clostridium difficile, has long plagued the medical profession and is blamed for an increasing amount of illness in patients.

Here's an outbreak of NAP1 which apparently is an extremely toxic strain: about 20 times more toxic that the original strain. This "supergerm" is resistant to antibiotics, causes extreme diarrhea and can cause fatal swelling of the colon.

The source of outbreak is unknown as is the number of people infected. It's expected to continue to spread through community and health care facilities. Be careful if you get sick in Phoenix!

Oh yea, pardon my digression here, but it looks like you are a music fan so might I recommend a nice documentary on today's music scene and why there is so much crap being pushed out. I have tried to share this with music peeps because it is really revealing and interesting.

Enjoy,

This is an elaborate conspiracy to cover up the true cause of these symptoms.

The true culprit is terrible hospital food.

Wonder why the antibiotics don't work? Because antibiotics do nothing for terrible tasting/quality food!

Don't let them sweep this under the rug! We know whats really going on!
