Superbug 6-pack

These little baddies are tough and super-resistant to antibiotics. Includes the following 6 mini superbugs (2-3") with key chain clip and adorned with supervillain capes - Pneumonia, Pseudomonas, Clap, Salmonella, C. Diff and MRSA.

Pneumonia
Pneumonia is a lung infection in which the small, air-exchanging sacs of the lungs (called alveoli) become inflamed and filled with fluid. It can come on suddenly and in serious cases it can take your breath away.

There are a number of causes of pneumonia, ranging from viruses to fungi to parasites to physical injury. The most common cause is Streptococcus pneumoniae.

Pseudomonas
Pseudomonas is a genus of common bacteria that lives in soil and water. Most species are harmless, yet some are opportunistic pathogens that will infect animals, plants and people. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the type frequently associated with human disease.

In recent years, P. aeruginosa has evolved into a superbug resistant to most commonly used antibiotics.

Clap
The clap, or gonorrhea, is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases. (The word "clap" comes from "clapier," the old French word for brothel.)

Gonorrhea is generally contracted by young adults, as promiscuity is the primary risk factor. Though most cases of the clap can be treated with antibiotics, hold the applause: resistant strains are beginning to emerge.

Salmonella
Discovered in 1885 by American veterinarian Daniel E. Salmon, Salmonella bacteria are among the leading causes of food poisoning in the world.

Poultry and eggs are among the most favored habitats for Salmonella – and should be handled with care. Unsanitary kitchen practices are often responsible.

C. Diff
Clostridium difficile, or C. diff for short, is a very common bacteria found in water, air, soil, and many other environments. However, it is becoming notorious as a cause of infections contracted in healthcare settings such as hospitals and nursing-homes. It can cause severe diarrhea and cramping, as well as inflammation of the colon – and in some instances it can be life-threatening.

MRSA
MRSA is a very common bacteria often found growing harmlessly on the skin. But some strains of this “superbug” are now resistant to virtually all known treatments.

The best way to prevent the spread of MRSA is to practice simple hygiene (such as hand-washing) and to complete any regime of prescribed antibiotics.
