You may have the sense that you've heard of MERSA...something people catch in the hospital. However, rather than an occasional occurrence, it is a global epidemic hiding in plain sight. It has swelled almost unnoticed for decades and now kills 19,000 Americans each year and sends another 7 million to the doctor or emergency room. Award-winning science and medical writer, Maryn McKenna, not only speaks of the gravity of the situation; but tells how we created the conditions that allowed MERSA to emerge, as well as sharing stories that reveal the harsh reality for some of those inflicted with this Superbug.
