Superbugs Spread from Patients to Visitors

Will Boggs writes that not only do some hospital patients become infected with superbugs, their visitors can take the infection home with them. Antibiotic-resistant staph infections are now frequently found outside hospitals.

Dr. David P. Calfee studied 172 personal contacts of 88 patients who got superbug infections in the hospital. 25 of them carried the same superbug, including one person who had only casual contact with the patient.

Ancient civilizations had their own ways of healing.
