I do medical transports and hear all kinds of sad stories.

One recent client had MRSA -- which from what he told me is a kind of staph -- but very aggressive.

He picked up the MRSA in a hospital - after an operation.

It ate away his hip joint -- and weakened his heart -- among other things.

To save his life the doctors gave him a very toxic antibiotic -- which killed the staph -- but also destroyed his kidneys. Things get worse.

The guy survives -- barely -- and can hardly walk. He's a mess.

The best way to protect yourself is to strengthen the immune system -- and eat right.
