Necrotising Fasciitis – Flesh eating Bugs are Real!

Flesh eating bugs or the so called ‘Necrotising Fasciitis’ are real and you may be the next victim. Yet the chances are slim to be affected although it can happen anywhere in the world.

The extrapolated incidences (annual diagnosis rate) in the USA (North America) are about 650 (approximate 1 in 453,333) but may have actual very limited relevancies to the actual incidences as occurred.

Any open bacterial infection caused by group A Strep bacteria can open the doors for this very aggressive drug-resistent disease. Emergency surgeries are cutting the abdominal skin wall and effected tissues in order to stop the bug but even this drastical procedure might not help.

Important however is to find help as fast as possible. The bug can often be found in dark and dirty places and who believes that when the first symptoms are occurring, you are actually eaten alive?.

The bug is eating its way up to the brain. As lower the entry point was, as longer and better is eventually the survival rate.

The initial symptoms can vary and but most are directly skin related like swollen skin, blisters, painful skin etc. But if actually a flesh eating bug is on work, that can only be diagnosed by a doctor and with his equipments.

The disease is highly life threatening. Up to 20% (likely even higher) of its victims are going to die from this medical condition either directly or because of related complications. Every open wound like such caused by needle punctures may provide an opportunity for the Necrotising Fasciitis to enter the body.

For some reasons, men are three times more likely to develop this rare condition than women, especially those ones in the age group between 38-44 years. There are about 205 known conditions which can be attributed to the death caused by the disease. Here are the top 10 conditions, sorted by Deaths:

1. Death

2. Chronic Illness

3. Cardiovascular Disease

4. Heart disease

5. Cancer

6. Ischemic heart disease

7. Coronary heart disease

8. Heart attack

9. Smoking

10. Obesity

For sure, it is no fun to fight Necrotising Fasciitis, the flash eating bug. If you are experiencing any symptoms, make sure you are not misdiagnosed as the vast majority of cases will.

And then there are the 630 species of busy flash eating plants….

Seems I have to find a better place in our Universe.

Take your daily Water Intake – Or DIE!

I admit that I’m not a big fan of drinking water, except I’m very thirsty or the water is very pure. But not drinking water has a series of repercussions.

As it is well known, the human body who exist of about 70% of water (think about that) needs a daily intake of 4-8 cups of water (each around 8 ounces or a total of 1.9 liters).

He can stay without water for about two days, although there were cases peoples survived even not drinking anything for even 7 days. Amazing. Anyhow, dehydration has started as soon as you feel that you are thirsty. That means, your energy level is going down. Note that water is also being used to flushes toxins out of the body and to carry nutrients to cells and other vital tissues.

Actually men are using about three liters (13 cups) beverages per day while women about 2.2 liters or 9 cups.

According heart specialists, it is best to drink a cup of water before meals and even after it. Recommend is also to drink a cup 30 minutes before going to bed to reduce the risk of a heart attack. Usually, it is recommend to drink a cup of water every 2 hours. If you feel you go to the rest room often because of that much fluid of intake, your body seemingly has enough water.

If you do plan to do exercise of any kind or sport, water should be taken in advance as the body looses naturally 2.5% of it already every day.

Some scientists say that the recommend water intake is a myth as there is supposing no evidence supporting this. They say, that according studies, such high intake is not required. Actually they do count other fluid intake such as coffle, tea or soft drinks towards the body’s requirements and believe that the body can maintain a proper water balance. Even beer can help if the intake is moderate.

On the other hand, drinking too much poses serious health risk called Hyponatremia. Eventually you can counter effect this condition with sport drinks intakes to replace lost electrolytes. Your doctor can help you to find the right balance.

As it is in every such contradictions, be on the safe side. I read that at least 50% of all studies being withdrawn after a while. Of course, you may hardly be informed about that change.

If you are going through a weight loss program, be aware that your requirements for water rises since the liver do require water to metabolize body fat. You have to compensate for it. However, Soda may hinder weight loss due to its interaction with the brain.

Note that this article is not a medical advice, rather a loosely concentration of various facts and pieces of information but hopefully it is useful. Make you own research into this topic!

You don’t like water? Put a slice of lemon into it.

Do you DIE if you to not drink water fast enough? Over a few days? Certainly. But why risk your life trying to find it out?
