MRSA Hits the Beaches

Hello Everyone,

MRSA was found on five of the ten public beaches that were analyzed along the coast of Washington and California between the months of February and September 2008.

Staphylococcus aureus, the ordinary strain, was found on nine of the ten beaches.  All of the strains were found more frequently in the sand than the beaches.

According to Dr. Lisa Plano of the University of Miami's Miller School of Medicine, says it is still safe to go into the water, especially if you shower thoroughly before and after swimming.

It is very important for you to read these articles on MRSA and the beaches.  It could save your life.  When I find more articles, I will add them.
