Dangerous Form of MRSA Is Spreading in the U.S.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a serious antibiotic-resistant bacteria, is invading everyday communities, USA Today reports. The bacteria, which is usually found in hospitals and health care settings, has been reported in gyms, schools and even among some NFL players. MRSA kills up to 20,000 Americans each year.
