... with what all got dumped int he gulf its not surprising.
If you're referring to the oil spill, that's a really good point. I've noted a lot of weird health conditions pop up when desert sands get whipped
up real good. It makes one wonder how long creepy stuff can lay dormant.
A 16yo girl that was in high school with my own daughter,died from meningitis picked up at a lake outside town-they could not afford medical
insurance+so she had to be treated at the state hospital,and yes,well..that is what happens in my country if you cannot afford good med insurance+have
to go to one of the state hospitals-whatever age you are.You die unnecessarily.I am still so sad about that.
And i think that was just normal bacterial meningitis,not one of these new resistant strains.
Look up mrsa infections in florida... it's startling. there was one story about a woman who went in the hospital to have a baby and while in there
she caught mrsa and when knocked out it got so bad so fast that by the time they brought her to, they had already amputated both legs and arms. Look
it up, that's 100% true.
Another kid was riding an ATV or something and got scratched on his leg... thought nothing of it... went swimming. He lost his leg in short order. I
can't remember if he lived or died. I'll back check these and look for articles but there is some heinous # in florida waters. Not just the waters
but it's bad in the hospitals.
This is one of the reasons I don't go in hospitals but they want us who even avoid hospitals to pay buttloads of money to keep the disease/
medication factories going. I mean medical technology is great and all but there is a scary side of that industry and it's not the patients fault but
that is who has to pay for it.
for those who are unfamiliar with this plasmatics album, they introduce this organism into the environment to eat the pollution but it grew out of
hand into giant maggots and killed everyone. There is a fully list of songs but also a hysterical narration.
I don't know what the hell is going on with all these superbugs but don't you kinda wish now that you didn't eat meat full of antibiotics? Don't
wish that crap wasn't in the water? Does anybody really think the factory way that the government forces upon us is really the right way?
but look now... look at what is happening that so many americans no is just wrong... and it's still happening.
ok... this article says she had the child at home THEN went to the hospital. that is not what i originally read. I originally read she caught it from
the hospital. maybe it isn't the same woman. This is weird.
Didn't you do a thread about flesh eating bacteria in the water off the Texas Gulf Coast not too terribly long ago? Seems like we're seeing strange
bacteria in the warm waters maiming and/or killing people more and more frequently, in fact I seem to recall a boy dying and others being hospitalized
from bacteria or amoebas in the drinking water in the outskirts of New Orleans recently too. It's almost as if the water is turning against us-
becoming a source of danger just by taking a drink or going for a swim.
All I know is my behind does not get in the water at the beach any more as a couple of my girlfriends got the flesh eating bacteria from just
splashing around in waist deep water of the Gulf of Mexico. Sad when you're scared to get in the water because no one knows what the heck is floating
around in there. Curse you BP!!!!
Keep in mind that bacteria are living organisms and evolve just like humans, the only difference is bacteria self-replicates hundreds of times faster
than us, meaning it can adapt faster, so it's probably just starting to adapt to current anti-biotics. Either that, or the zombie strain is upon

I am very afraid of what the future of "medical care" is going to look like in our future. We definitely need to make some serious changes to the
way our healthcare systems operates, but we don't need to throw the baby out with the bath water. The core of our system, (the patients and the
healthcare providers, the heart and soul of our society) should be the sole focus of our system, profit for the sake of profit and greed needs to be
completely eliminated. If anyone person, company or group is gaining wealth from the system then they need to be eliminated. It should be based solely
I don't know how long what I am about to say will remain true, but right now in this country, in the state where I work, people without insurance
actually receive better care, service and length of hospital stay, then those that don't. I know it sounds crazy, but those "with " insurance have
gate keepers that dictates to the doctors and hospital what services they will allow (pay for) and those that they won't. Doctors are told on a daily
basis, "Get that patient out of the hospital or we are not going to pay for a single hour past this phone call. These calls come straight from the
managers at the insurance companies.
People without insurance do have people trying to push them out of the hospital as well, trust me on that, but the doctors can push back a little bit
when they don't feel it is safe to push a patient out or fore go a treatment or diagnostic test they think is beneficial, plus they gain a little
time when the patient's with insurance are always being pushed to the first of the line. So the poor do not have to fear receiving inadequate
healthcare in America. At least that was true before October 1, 2013. Right now I don't think anyone truly knows what is going to play out.
