    This subject has popped up in the headlines recently. Apparently infections by MRSA (Methicillin resistant staphlococcus areus) are on the rise.

    I have also heard more frequently warnings about meningitis, particularly for children and young adults.

    Be careful about sharing food and drink with acquaintances and wash hands periodically when in public places.
