Meningitis Outbreaks....no end?

I happened to see on the news today, and also read online that there is a meningitis outbreak that has killed approx. 15 people and left 200 ill.

It is not viral or bacterial meningitis, but it is actually fungal meningitis. I personally have not heard of fungal meningitis until now.

It is believed that the meningitis outbreak was caused by tainted drugs from a Massachussetts pharmacy. It is still being investigated.

This particular news story is concerning to me. People rely on their medications to feel better, and it is horrible to me that people are getting sicker because of tainted medications.

Please remember to be safe, only taking medications when needed as Dr. prescribed and from a reliable pharmacy.

Be Happy Healthy & Strong,

  2. One of my clients got the injection because of his back issues in September. Thank goodness it was done at a hospital and not a clinic. He escaped getting real sick.
