Another Tampa Bay player comes down with MRSA

Pretty sure its past time to nuke that entire facility from 10,000 feet up in the air.

Right about now, the Buccaneers likely are longing for the good old days, when their biggest problem was a fallen franchise quarterback who was creating daily headaches for the coaching staff and the front office. According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, yet another Buccaneers player has been diagnosed with a MRSA infection. The potent bacteria already has ended the season of kicker Lawrence Tynes.

Likewise, it was reported on Thursday that the infection has returned to the foot of guard Carl Nicks. Per Stroud, more information will be disclosed later this hour at a press conference involving G.M. Mark Dominik and the co-director of the Duke Infection Control Outreach Network.

Until then, Stroud reports that Nicks, receiver Mike Williams, and cornerback Johnthan Banks are not present at practice. It's possible that Williams or Banks is the latest player with MRSA. Williams previously was on the injury report this week with a hamstring problem; Banks was not mentioned.

Have read several reviews on the internet that Colloidal Silver kills MRSA infections.

I use the stuff for colds & flu's works great.

I wouldn't believe everything you read on the internet, especially with the potential of agryria when it comes to silver consumption, its completely permanent too. In recent years there has been a tremendous rise in the amount of people with confirmed agryria, some after only moderate use of colloidal silver.













That said, recent research has shown that a particular type of honey, Manuka Honey, which comes from New Zealand, is actually highly effective against MRSA en vitro. There's components in the honey which as of yet aren't well understood that simply prevent MRSA from reproducing and without that, the infection simply dies off. However, this of course is only in a petri dish thus far and hasn't been studied in-depth in people but I guess if you have a MRSA infection it is worth a shot.

Here's a link to the abstract of one of the studies.

Lets hope they clean this shlt before our niners come to their stadium
Now there's a possibility of the Bucs-Eagles game being postponed, Tampa Bay brought in a specialist in infectious diseases who gave the usual "you have nothing to worry about" deal.

A top quality Colloidal Silver is completely safe when used responsibly within safe dosages and is approved for sale in health food stores.

Photos above are good examples of how not to use Colloidal Silver.

I have used CS for over 25 years with no problems. I also know many people who have as well and if I had MRSA I would not hesitate to use CS in a possible life threatening situation.

Many positive reviews on CS on WebMD.com...

When I have more time I will post what happened to Blue man above re Colloidal Silver use.

I've admitted many patients with cellulitis and a majority of them ended up being MRSA. They would be admitted up to a week sonetimes and we gave them IV vancomycin which is the "last resort" antibiotic for most infections.

MRSA is a result of over prescribing antibiotics by doctors and patients not following the instructions for taking them. When a doctor says finish the bottle, it is to prevent this. When you take an antibiotic pill here and there you are allowing bacteria to adapt to the antibiotic and become resistant to it, hence MRSA. When you finish the bottle, even after your symptoms of infection are gone, you increase the chance of reducing the bacteria count to nil. Instead people like to take the antibiotic until the bacterial count is low enough to reduce their symptoms which usually means their is still bacteria present, just not enough to cause symptoms. Those bacteria can be adapting to the antibiotic and you could create MRSA.

I'm sure many of you know people who have antibiotic pills laying around from an old prescription, all those people have taken a prescription incorrectly and are exposing themselves to creating MRSA.

You lost me on "creating" MRSA. If you're talking about general antibiotic resistance then you are absolutely on the money, but MRSA refers to a specific type of staph, you can't "create" it.

Roughly 30% of the population is currently colonized with MRSA and even a higher percentage with some form of staph aureus which is one of the oldest microorganisms that we know, its essentially evolved with humans throughout our entire history and we've had a largely tolerable relationship together until the dawn of antibiotics when the weaker, more prevalent staph strains were killed off, resulting in far more aggressive and dangerous strains of staph remaining altogether.

MRSA is Methicillin resistant staph aureus, basically methicillin was a semi-synthetic antibiotic designed in the 50s to be the "perfect" antibiotic and not have the same weaknesses as penicillin has been showing, there were adjustments made in the way it attacked bacteria, particularly staph aureus, however it didn't take long for staph to become resistant to methicillin.....hence......MRSA......to start appearing in the 60s. There's many different variants of staph and different variants of MRSA, hospital-acquired MRSA and community-acquired MRSA are both quite different on a genetic level, there's also VRSA.



In general the overuse and improper use of antibiotics has led to widespread antibiotic resistance, as the CDC stated recently, we are now in the post-antibiotic world. Within 20 years, antibiotics will be good for treating minor infections and little else. There are also those who argue that while abuse and improper use of antibiotics has been a severe problem, it's always been inevitable that these bacterial organisms would adapt to antibiotics sooner or later. When you consider how many times bacterial organisms reproduce, every single genetic variation is just a roll of the dice and eventually, if you roll that dice enough, you're going to hit on a winner, if only entirely by accident.

Beta lactam AB include the family of the penicillin. They are a broad class of AB that consist a beta lactam ring in its molecular structure. They inhibit cell wall synthesis


Penicillin antibiotics include (methicillin, oxacillin, amoxicillin, etc)

Since the beta lactam ring is what binds to the bacteria, bacteria evolve by creating an enzyme (beta lactamase) that renders the antibiotic ineffective. The enzyme directly attacks the beta lactam ring

So with penicillin, you can create (improper word but to make thing simple) bacteria to evolve to have the enzyme.
If I were te Niners FO, I'd pay a company that specializes in that type of cleaning/sanitizing service to thoroughly scrub that locker room before the game.
could be that the meat in their facility is MSRA tainted

and Phoenix, way to fall for the anti Colloidal Silver propaganda campaign....it is a cheaper, safer and more effective antimicrobial than a lot of the more expensive solutions. read the congressional testimony. http://lifesilver.com/v1/testimony.htm
