What Could Possibly Be Bugging You?



bigmama60Bigmama60 on 10/25/2007

WhatCouldPossiblyBeBuggingYou Photo It seems as though today we are being stalked by these pesky little bugs called pathogens, which have become resistant to antibiotic medications. Antibiotic drugs attack bacteria, not viruses. Moreover, don’t forget, there have been some cases of hamburger and spinach contaminated with E. coli and Salmonella here in the USA.

The most recent attack on the human population by these microbes has been MRSA (Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus), a "superbug". I have tried to be as responsible as possible in presenting this quiz. I did not prepare it to cause alarm or overreaction; more precisely, I thought those of you in the healthcare professions may enjoy the challenge, as well as you other trivia buffs.

Please rate fairly regardless of score.
Thank you for taking my quiz.
