Re: Tetanus reaction (same old story)..
I have had many conversations with other people here about different reactions to the sun. many people with eczema have a bad reaction to extreme sun, and extreme winter. I normally spend time in the sun, but I can’t go to places that are closer to the sun like Mexico, with out experiencing over exposure. Where people with psoriasis have the opposite effect, the sun helps heal it, not make it worse. Many other people with other autoimmune diseases have problems to the sun, like Lupus. I don’t think the sun is bad for you at all, I still need to get my Vitamin D3. If I don’t get enough exposure to the sun, taking supplements may help. I believe vitamin D3 is essential for the body.
As for flesh eating, yes we do come in contact with it normally, it is the same bacteria that causes “strep” why some people get it and most do not, could be a combination of things, from how strong our immune system is, how clean you are. A long time ago when flesh eating was more common. It affected people who never cleaned a cut properly, it became an infection that turned in to flesh eating. And then they lost a chunk of their body. Today nearly every cut is treated properly, cleaned and disinfected. I figure it is no different as to why the plague is no longer here. Back then people hardly ever took a bath let alone disinfected. And the proper antibiotics kill bacteria before it ever becomes life threatening.
I always think if they never had antibiotics, I would have been dead by the age of 5.
Flesh eating or strep if not treated will permanently damage you or kill you. Tetanus if not treated will permanently damage you or kill you. But both if treated quickly you can heal with out any effects, and people may never even know you had it unless you told them. Sometimes these DANGERIOUS bacteria’s are treated SO quickly you didn’t even know which bacteria you had. You don’t even care, because you don’t have it anymore.
Personally I know that because of antibiotics, disinfecting, and Vacinations, is the WHOLE reason why people don’t normally come down with these deadly bacteria’s anymore. They are still around, and yet we are not bothered by them anymore. But I believe overuse of antibiotics is bad, over vaccinating a person is bad, and overly disinfecting your surroundings is bad. As we lose the ability for our body to naturally heal its self from these everyday bacteria’s. you cannot stop being exposed to bacteria, but you can control it.
