Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria Rising in Hospitals

A recent news item appearing on television news programs (do they ever report anything but bad news) and online is about an antibiotic resistant bacteria that is on the increase in hospitals.
According to Bloomberg there is “[A] group of potentially fatal germs that are difficult to treat because they resist antibiotics and are becoming more of a threat” this according to a U.S. Report (March 5, 2013).
This is a bacteria that normally lives in the digestive system and can result in other infections throughout the body i.e. bladder or blood, according to the CDC.
This is going to be an interesting health issue to follow.
More later as I research this all important potentially dangerous health problem.
