VIDEO from Medialink and EcoQuest: New Technology Reduces Exposure to MRSA Staph
Date:11/2/2007

NEW YORK, Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Recent outbreaks of antibiotic-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, more commonly known as "staph," have been reported from across the country. A bacteria that healthy people can carry on the skin or nose, it is unknowingly carried by millions of people. It can cause infections of the skin, in the blood, in the bones and in the lungs, and it has become resistant to a wide range of antibiotics. While most of these infections are minor, some however, can be fatal.

Fortunately, these infections are not new and are preventable. You can help prevent them by keeping your hands clean and washing thoroughly with soap and water. Keep cuts clean and covered until healed. Avoid contact with other people's wounds.

A new indoor purification system also helps prevent the spread of staph by reducing germs on area surfaces, killing 99.9 percent of viruses and bacteria. ActivePure is based on technology developed by NASA. It has been tested in University Laboratory studies. The results of those studies have been acknowledge on the United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA) website. The system is now being used in homes, schools, daycares, hospitals and retirement communities.
