@mauisurfer, that had less than nothing to do with this neat sign put out by a pissed-off homeowner, but a very cool video anyway.

For Surfers, etc..


Surfers may be swallowing antibiotic-resistant bacteria

Surfers and body-boarders were three times more likely to have potentially dangerous antibiotic-resistant bacteria in their guts than non-surfers, new research from the UK shows.

Surfers and body-boarders had triple the rate of E. coli resistant to the antibiotic cefotaxime in their fecal samples. Thirteen surfers, compared to four non-surfers, carried bacteria that would continue to grow even if treated with cefotaxime, one of the few antibiotics used to treat serious infections.

----Now, my question is (assuming those results are accurate), are Surfers/etc less healthy than others, or has their immune systems/bodies developed more of a symbiotic relationship with said bacteria, which may then keep them from getting sick from other diseases? ---------- I have always had the impression that Surfers etc are healthier than the average lot of humanity? ? ?
