There is a lot more to solving the MRSA problem than just washing hands and clothing, although that would be a great start!

So, if someone can carry the infection in their nose and can essentially be a carrier who is unharmed by it....How can one find out if they have it? Are there any symptoms? Can it be cured?
PLEASE, PLEASE help us get this info out to people.

Does this study on Vitamin D treatment of TB suggest that deficiency of Vitamin D is related to susceptibility to MRSA?
Are manicure parlors breeding grounds for MRSA?
here's a picture of a mrsa infection
Yes! Please, Doctors, Nurses and other healthcare workers: STOP wearing SCRUBS on Subways! It's so irresponsible.
The other concern I have is restaurant employees. I saw two Chefs on the Subway yesterday, wearing their aprons and kitchen attire! Who knows what they're picking up and spreading!
I recently asked the manager of my health club how often they washed the yoga mats in light of the MRSA scare.....he said that they are washed maybe once every two months....(I'll be bringing my own mat from now on....)
THEN he causually mentioned that one of the assistant managers is currently in the hospital with a MRSA infection!!
YIKES!! I really don't think that we are gettting the straight scoop on this...
I heard a report on this somewhere else. Apparently it's the medical profession that's largely to blame. For example, a majority of docs admitted to not changing their white coats more than once/week. Other hospital workers wear their uniforms on the subway, picking up god knows what. Hopsital operating rooms are notiously dirty. If medical (laughingly-referred-to-as) professionals can't keep clean, what chance do us patients (victims?) have?
