Flu Infections And MRSA Deaths In Maryland

Well there you have it. Seasonal flu with a shot of MRSA, shaken, not stirred.

Other reports came into the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention over the course of that flu season. When the CDC counted up the following summer, there had been 15 cases of severe MRSA pneumonia in 9 states. Four of them died. CDC personnel wrote another article warning of the dangers of MRSA and flu two years later, after clusters of cases in Louisiana and Georgia during the 2006-07 flu season. They said: “Secondary S. aureus pneumonia is a potentially catastrophic complication of influenza… MRSA [community-acquired pneumonia] often affects young, otherwise healthy persons and can be rapidly fatal.”

Since in this incident, it was isolated to a family, I wonder if gentics played into it.

But strange that so many are in Maryland.


Over two months, there was a 31-year-old woman who was in the hospital for four weeks; MRSA ate holes in her lung, the largest of which was 1 by 1.5 inches. Two other women, 20 and 33 years old, were each hospitalized for three months. The 20-year-old’s heart stopped, and her blood clotting grew so disordered that doctors had to amputate one leg below her knee; the 33-year-old lost both lower legs. The fourth patient was a 52-year-old man, a two-pack-a-day smoker, who died.

OMG, those poor people.

Oh that's aweful. One of my oldest friends died 3 years ago from MRSA pneumonia. It just ravaged him. He was in ICU for 5 weeks and probably weighed half his normal weight when he died. He also lived in Maryland. He left behind a wife and two little ones. So sad, and scary too.

Break out the colloidal silver!

Make it yourself at home...

3 D size batteries
2 .9999 silver wires about 5-6in long
2 regular speaker wires about 8-12in long
2 alligator clips
2 pieces of black electrical tape (for the wires on the batteries)
1 glass of spring water
Wait about 15-25mins for it to be just right.
Stir and drink up.

Colloidal silver kills MRSA. I have seen this myself, it works, nothing supplemental necessary, just silver. 2X per day for 3-4 weeks. The person I know who cured MRSA with silver had it for over 2 years on their face.

Hmmm...almost makes you wonder what's in Maryland besides crabs.

Annapolis is a start.

Thank you nixie_nox. He was also my best man... just one of those things you never get over. Still think about him. He was also the bass player in my band. My drummer won't play anymore. He is truly traumatized over it even after 3 years.

Are you serious? I've never heard of that before.

MRSA,looks just like syphillis.

And (I dont believe this true) They taught in school,once syphillis shows on the skin. It cannot be healed and you die.

I was taught,you have to find syphillis before its a skin disease or you die from it.

Is that MRSA. syphiliis?

Wouldnt alot of time with some wash rags and some soap do the job? If affordable.

Those 1$ bottle of peroxide,work very well against skin disease. If affordable,buy mass quantity. And submerge the whole body part.

That collidal silver can turn your skin PERMANENTLY BLUE if you take it too long so be careful.
And (I think) its the 3rd stage of syphilis that's not treatable, gets into the brain.

EPIgenetics, more likely.

But MRSA has evolved to attack the lungs. Scary, isn't it?

You must be familiar with the the state if you bring up Annapolis.

But my first thought that it would not surprise me in th least for Baltimore to produce a deadly disease.

The only other states mentioned is Georgia and Louisiana I believe.

So if you are north of the Mason Dixon line, you should be ok.

Now as mentioned in the previous thread, there is Ft. Detrick and the Aberdeen proving grounds. There are high rates of cancer around Ft. Detrick.

But I think it is because the state has a massive hospital system. A lot of the patients were at Johns Hopkins. And it has been said that hospitals are the place to get infections. who knows.

You didn't want to add this to the existing thread, that you were part of, huh.

Oh I am sorry, are you a moderator?

And no, not when there is pertinant information that I would like to bring attention to. MRSA flu infections are rare.

This has been contained to one family.

Within 48 hours of getting involved in the Calvert County outbreak, the state health department reached the conclusion that the flu had weakened the immune system of those made ill, leading them to develop pneumonia and in the case of Blake’s two adult children who died, MRSA, Phillips said
