MRSA has transformed from a moderately rare disease to what some physicians believe is an epidemic that threatens to plunge the human race into a cesspit of bacterial resistance. The average, healthy human can no longer stay immune to this crippling bacterium because CA-MRSA lurks around every corner. There has been documentation of MRSA infections on every continent, excluding Antarctica. From the healthiest human to those who possess immune deficiencies, MRSA is a danger that we are constantly exposed to, a danger that can strike anyone, anytime, anywhere.
"A search of the MEDLINE database was performed, encompassing all English or French language citations from 1966 to 1999. MRSA has emerged over the past 30 years to become a worldwide nosocomial pathogen and has recently been reported as a cause of community-acquired infections. MRSA strains are now endemic in certain communities in different parts of the world", according to Gardam from Division of Infectious Disease in University of Toronto.
