Have you ever had a fear of entering a hospital for what the doctor told you would be a routine procedure only to learn that when you were all done you caught an infection. Or perhaps your child was playing at the local playground and then came down with a skin rash only to find out it was some type of infectious disease.
These are real fears that many people have, but most are not even aware of the potential dangers or what preventive measures could be taken to protect themselves and their loved ones.
Today we have as our guest Dr. Roberto Posada, M.D an expert in infectious disease to talk about and S. Aureus or more commonly known as a Staph Infection.

Bleeding hearts talk about plans to reach out and come to the aid of the poor little illegal aliens crossing our borders by the thousands.
They can spend their money any way they wants…. but once those kids take up entitlement residency here because bleeding hearts we were so nice to provide them with everything they could ever want and need, it`s MY MONEY that has to pay for their care.
Now it becomes my business and I don’t believe in rewarding ANY KIND OF ILLEGAL ACTIVITY, THE AGE OF THE OFFENDERS IS NOT RELEVANT.
As a Christian, I understand the responsibility to help those less fortunate, HOWEVER, there are millions of “less fortunate” children who are American born citizens that need help… There are millions of Veterans who have returned to our country with missing body parts, and their families who need our help.
Why choose criminals as beneficiaries of our charity when there are law abiding Americans born citizens suffering?
We’re having an outbreak of scabies that’s been going on for a month or so now…We’re starting to see chickenpox, we’re starting to see [MRSA] staph infections, we’re starting to see different viruses…”
“They’re all contagious,” Cabrera continued. “So now we’re transporting people into different parts of the state, different parts of the country and some of these viruses are asymptomatic at this point — they’re not showing the symptoms.”
Sarah H. of Knoxville was born 12 weeks premature. Before she left the hospital she had serious challenges to overcome. But this tiny baby was also born with a strong spirit and a can-do attitude that have helped her through those and many additional challenges in the first 23 years of her life.
Sarah is a member of Club Vibes (http://www.club-vibes.org/) an organization created by John and Sue Buckley to assist blind and visually impaired young people in the Knoxville area to live independent and productive lives by identifying their unique capacities and developing their individual strengths. They recruit "pilots" who steer tandem bicycles while a visually impaired young person "stokes" in the rear.
Sarah and Sue join Mike and Joyce to talk about Sarah's medical journey and her outstanding academic journey which she hopes will lead her to a career in medicine.
MRSA KILLS MORE THAN AIDS
A deadly superbug is reaping havoc on our nation as it takes toll
of many as 190,000 lives a year. In an instant things
can change from just cooking a great dinner in the kitchen to
fighting for your life from a staph infection that came from cutting
your finger. Many have never heard of the superbug, but
when it happens story after story pop up and you realize that this
is a serious issue that need to be addressed.
This deadly bug attacks your animals as well and not much can
be done if you do not know what to do. MRSA can spread
jumping from humans to pets and then possibly reinfecting the
pet owners. Is this dangerous? Very dangerous!
How can you protect yourself from this? It has been told that it is
as simple as washing your hands. So how do we keep safe?
Internet professional groups can be extreamly helpful, and a particular dental group was on task to help hygienist Stacie Carlson help her son fight a MRSA infection on his neck that threatened his life. This fast moving, painful infection is extreamly difficult to cure or even treat. In her son's case none of the traditional methods for treatment were working and she was desperate. Calling on her dentist friends about how they use ozone in their dental practice helped her son recover quickly.
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) Infections MRSA is methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, a type of staph bacteria that is resistant to many antibiotics. In a healthcare setting, such as a hospital or nursing home, MRSA can cause severe problems such as bloodstream infections, pneumonia and surgical site infections. Invasive MRSA infections that began in hospitals declined 54% between 2005 and 2011, with 30,800 fewer severe MRS infections. In addition, the study showed 9,000 fewer deaths in hospital patients in 2005 versus 2011.
Shirley Gutkowski finds out how ozone oils work and how to use them along with ozone gas in the treatment of this radial man-made super bug.
Kedric Golston: 'I Tried to Do Life My Way, but Everything Changed When I Gave My Life to Christ' (G
He is a defensive end for the Washington Redskins. He was drafted in the sixth round in the 2006 NFL Draft as a defensive tackle. He played college football at the University of Georgia.
During his senior year in high school, he got into a bad car accident where he flipped his truck 5 times and got thrown out of the truck which resulted in a broken leg and a staph infection in his lungs. For him, his chances at playing football in college or the NFL were over. For an All-American, this accident was devastating. However, he immediately went into rehab and by God’s grace he was still offered a scholarship to play college football.
During college, football trumped his faith. He said, "I tell people all the time, I got to college and just lost my mind. I thought I was a Christian because I said the prayer. I said I was a Christian. I knew Jesus but wasn’t serving Him whole heartedly. I felt as long as I went to church on Sunday, and said my prayers, I’d be just fine. I knew mamma was at home praying for me. So I thought that was all that mattered."
In 2002, he helped the Georgia Bulldogs win their first SEC Championship in 20 years. Everything seemed to be going well. But over the next three seasons, he faced multiple injuries, and his football career again hung in the balance. He was not only brought to a halt physically, but spiritually as well. He said, "I just really got tired of playing the one step forward and five steps back game. And (I was) kind of using God as a good luck charm and not really allowing Him to be the head of my life, as my Lord and Savior."
His name is Kedric Golston.
