Superbugs are #2 on my top 7 major concern's list, for those things which can extinguish the human race and possibly all lifeforms on Planet Earth!!!

No paranoia here, just the facts as they really exist.

This is HUGE. With the boomers approaching their senior years, there will be more people housed in long-term care homes, etc. These people are particularly vulnerable to super bugs.

Staff is most dangerous because it grows in colonies and they can spread through the body and be dormant for long periods. This was a really good article with excellent information.
