Recently, there was a repot regarding the flesh eating bacteria here in California, followed by a report of another bacteria. So,how safe are we in this place? The more industrialize the place is,the more unsafe it is to live in. Life is too short! When strucked by their report that the bacterias were found out to be resistant to anti-bacterial medications, the more i think of life as shorter than ever. Before i end this paragraph,i would like to ask you this question: Is there a better,safe place to live in out there?Where?

Flesh Eating Bacteria is in a lot of places. Here in Fl there was an outbreak in people swimming in the ocean. It is in hospitals, schools, all kinds of places. Most of the time the people who get it are physically run down. There immune systems are already compromised somehow and they have a break in the skin or some other ailment. You cannot keep running and looking for a safer place to live. Besides California has some more interesting problems than just Flesh Eating Bacteria. Depending on where in California you live, you have mudslides, fires, earthquakes, all kinds of fun things. Of couse the Midwest has tornadoes, so does Fl and other parts of the south. The south has Hurricanes and Gaters and bugs and poisonous snakes and floods and droughts. The Northern states have cold and snow and the upper midwest and west can have hurricane force winds and snow at the same time. I don't know California doesn't sound any worse than the rest of the country to me. Shalom~Adoniah

Thank you very much for the information. I just got here in California and was terrified of what they reported. I thought it is only here in California where that bacteria thrives in. It is more serious now due to the fact that the bacteria is resistant to anti-bacterial medications. I'm hoping that as soon as possible they can find a cure for it.

Actually, surgery is their first line of defense now I think. They remove the diseased tissue and then start the latest broad spectrum antibiotics to combat any that they left. They also use things like leaches. But it is rare. So you won't get it just because it is out there. I swim in the ocean all the time and I have never gotten it! Shalom

It is better to swim in a running water than to swim in a stagnant water like swimming pool,specially public swimming pool. Yuck! why leech? Oh,my GOD if i will be a nurse to a patient who has that disease i wont do that. Not a leech or any worms..But thank you for this information again
