                                                  A drug-resistant superbug that spreads by skin contact is infecting thousands of people across the US and may now have reached Europe.

The MRSA bacterium, or methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus , can be resistant to many antibiotics. It has long been a serious problem in hospitals and nursing homes, where it infects the wounds of patients weakened by disease or injury. But it now appears that a new strain is emerging that spreads through skin contact and can even infect healthy people.

                                                  Yep...Just another side effect of the Medical field's tendency to over-use anti-biotics. People just don't realize that Darwin's evolution theory holds true to the Viral world as well to the Humanistic world......Or it could be a genetically enhansed Virus created to help with population control.....either was it's definatly our own fault.
