Default Flesh Eating Bacteria

Ch 3 News reported that a 12yr old girl from Indiana contracted the Flesh Eating Bacteria while in the Gulf in Destin.
So be weary of this. "On their trip to the beach, Kylei stuck her toes in the water, just days after scuffing her toe on a skateboard."

It is nasty, but a lot of us fish, wade, throw cast nets and whatever else several times a week with cuts and wounds and never have a problem. I wonder what the difference is?

The difference is that your immune system works a little differently than everyone else's immune system.

Furthermore, your own immune system changes as you age.

That stuff does not discriminate, but a weaker immune system seems to play a role in it.

And not only contained in saltwater environments.

Kids today don’t have a chance. Their immune systems never develop well because they spend all their time indoors and bathing in anti-bacterial soaps. I was exposed to virtually every type of bacteria and fungus known as a kid because I played in creeks, bays, bayou’s and the gulf even when I had open cuts or stitches (often from wrecking on a bicycle or motorcycle) to this day I get sick less than my students do just because of my upbringing. As a society we’re allowing this crap to propagate.
