WHAT ROLE DO YOU PLAY IN THE SPREAD OF MRSA?
Is MRSA infection contagious? It can spread from person to person in a variety of ways – but most often via skin to skin contact and especially via the hands. MRSA is a highly drug resistant variety of the very common staphylococcus aureus (SA) bacteria.
SA is found on the skin of over 30% of people and is believed to be carried by as many as 80% of people at some point in their lives. MRSA is rarer – 1.5% are thought to carry it, but in some populations this can be as high as 10% and it seems likely to grow.
SA can make you as ill as MRSA, but SA is easier to treat as more drugs are effective against it. The bacteria can survive for several months on surfaces and unlike viruses does not need a ‘host’ to survive. If you or a friend have MRSA you or they can be contagious in the following ways:
MRSA is often found in the nose but is also common around the armpits and groin area. We can shed bacteria from our skin onto any surface we touch. This may be of little impact unless we are already quite ill and stationary in which case the bacteria can become concentrated around us and potentially be picked up by those caring for us.
Those carrying MRSA in their noses can expel MRSA bacteria during colds,flu and other respiratory infections, mainly via sneezing. This can in turn cause contamination.
We may therefore therefore contaminate surfaces. When these are high touch surfaces such as door handles, computer keyboards and the like, the bacteria can transfer to people’s hands and then travel to other parts of their bodies or to the skin of others.
Families may sometimes share household items such as combs, hairbrushes and towels. These are high touch items that can help spread infection.
Nurses, doctors or friends can become transient carriers. They may shed the bacteria later that day via washing or whatever but have carried it another patient or high touch surface. Other transient carriers can include family pets – these may be the source of reinfection in many families.
High touch activities
Contact sports and sexual activity involving nakedness can be often be another means via which MRSA (or SA) can be transmitted to the skin of another.
MRSA Contagious? What can you do?
Because SA and MRSA are so common it is impracticable to suggest that social distancing may protect a family or individual. Negative attitudes to MRSA positive people will not help them cope with their illness. The best responses to the possibility of MRSA contagion include a strong emphasis on hand hygiene as this is the most common way it moves between people. Washing hands 3-5 times a day and after contact with a known MRSA carrier will eradicate a large part of the risk.
WHAT CAN YOU, THE CONSUMER DO TO PROTECT YOURSELF?
You can buy organic meat only. this is the only way to ensure that MRSA is not in your diet because in order do obtain the “Organic” designation, the meat producer must be certified that they are NOT using antibiotics on their livestock.
WHAT CAN YOU DO IF YOU SUSPECT YOU HAVE MRSA?
When antibiotics are administered too often — whether to humans or to animals — a few strong bacteria survive and reproduce, giving rise to new generations of resistant organisms. The use of silver was tested against MRSA and staph in several studies and found to be effective. FDA-certified independent lab tests demonstrate that NutraSilver has zero toxicity to the human body, yet it is utterly lethal to the tested pathogens.
“Colloidal silver has proven to be toxic to all tested species of fungi, bacteria, protozoa, parasites and many viruses. More importantly—unlike conventional antibiotics—infectious agents cannot build a resistance to silver. Taken internally, it may improve digestion; help prevent colds, flu and all organism-caused diseases. It can be used as a douche, atomized, nebulized or inhaled. Applied externally, it has been shown to help with things such as skin abrasions and burns (including sun burn). It can also be dropped into the eyes and ears to help the body overcome infection.” — Kurt Grange, Ph.D., N.D., nutritional bio-physiologist and author
“My 4 year old daughter has MRSA. As an MD, I had access to virtually every MRSA/Staph treatment available to Western Medicine. Nothing worked. I applied NutraSilver, a natural mineral, on my daughter topically. She also took small amounts orally. Within 4 days I saw an impressive improvement. NutraSilver really came through for us!”— Mike, MD, 2010
