Seems like it is getting more prevalent? Anybody with actual insight to this situation?
We have a problem locally with a bacteria called Vibrio. It grows in brackish water starting about this time of year, when the water is hot. A friend on mine had it infect his foot. He spent two weeks in a medically-induced coma while they tried to save his leg, which they did. Between the hospital and rehab stay, it took about two months, and it will never be right.
Just the Media, but it's making people think before getting in the water with open cuts and such.
Yeah, don't swim in a lake, a river, or the ocean because they are all nasty, polluted and full of toxic junk and medical waste.
I wonder if its just access to news that makes it seem like an increase or if its actually getting worse.
It is but I don’t think we are allowed to discuss the most likely cause of the observed spread on tgp anymore
Not quite sure how it’s “just the media” when all they did was report the cases as they happened.
That's how they get you.
We're not allowed to discuss group A Streptococcus (GAS), Staphylococcus, or Vibrio Vulnificus?
Can’t blame it on paper cuts from the declining print media.
Vibrio Vulnificus might just work for a metal band name, or perhaps the learned lead singer of such band, IMO
This hits way too close to home here on TGP.
Old possum's 'media' should stop warning of flesh-eating bacteria. They'd be doing him and us a favor .
Mulva Vulnificus and the Flesh Eaters
If they could train those little rascals just to eat gut fat, somebody would make a fortune.
Which Gwarrior was that? When did he go solo?
I just pics of some CA woman and it showed the bones in her foot exposed? Yikes!
But then we’d have obese bacteria
