Everyone has a deadly bacteria on their skin

A group of scientists warned of the possible danger of this developing bacterium resistance to antibiotics.

"They can develop very quickly with the exchange of genes with each other," said Sam Shepard. (Photo:

Researchers at the University of Bath, UK, has warned of this deadly bacterium that is in the skin of every person in the world. They identified a group of 61 genes which allow a call Staphylococcal epidermalis & apos; cause dangerous diseases. These genes cause bacteria to develop into the bloodstream and obstruct the immune response of the body and make the surface of the cells sticky for these bacteria and thus form a protective layer and become resistant to antibiotics.

Apparently he is a close relative of SERM bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus), which causes diseases like pneumonia or sepsis. Researchers say this is the cause of life-threatening infections after surgery, but is often overlooked by doctors.

The leading research professor, Sam Shepard, explains that the bacteria "has always been ignored clinically because it was often assumed to be a contaminant in laboratory samples or is simply accepted as a known risk of surgery." He announced that if it was not controlled, probable postoperative infections could become are more common.
