and more infections

Image result for honey smacks salmonella
now its kelloggs sugar smacks i mean honey smacks doing it
causing folks to get salmonella
the ones hurt the worse are younger kids whose immune systems havent kicked in yet
older folks whose immune systems are starting to wane and fade

so i looked at the package real close
i realized that when you look at a microscopic view of salmonella
it looks just like those sugar i mean honey smacks

just yesterday i started to make a salad
i looked at my bag of prewashed three times lettuce spring herb mix
i wonder i thought do i need to wash this stuff myself

i took out my bag of prewashed broccoli and caulflower
i thought
do i need to rewash this stuff

i grabbed my green beans i had just picked from the garden
popped it into my mouth and ate it
i did the same with that juicy red tomato
the same with that banana pepper

the thought of getting salmonella from my garden
well it never crossed my mind
i hesitated
for a while on the lettuce and the broccoli mix package

no i didnt wash it again
i chose to live dangerously

im not worried about the sugar smacks since its been years since i ate cereals

on to another area where infections have increased
its those dont talk about it but sure dont want to get it
its those stds

if you dont know what that means
well im not going to tell you
you just figure it out for yourself
while you are at it fiugure out how you can keep from getting them

the three major stds are

all three are on the uptick in incidence
the first one is climbing in the older population also
those baby boomers reliving their youth

what damage can these cause
joint infections
damage to reproductive system
oral cancer
brain damage
genital ulcers

the hpv virus can cause cervical cancer and oral cancer and throat cancer
mostly preventable with the hpv vaccine
the use of condoms

the use of condoms are the best preventative method for these diseases
of course abstinence theoretically would be 100% effective
well we know that dont work

the lack of funding for public health is a big real big factor in this uprising in stds

gonorrhea is becoming resistant to rocephin or ceftrioxine and to the zpack or zithromax
the last two drugs left that works

a few cases of this antibiotic resistance has been found
there is nothing else available

then theres hiv which is increasing some
folks are not as scared about getting it now
but they should be

what are we going to do about this increase in
food borne illness
sexually transmitted diseases
vaccines for communicable diseases that work if folks would take them

it will take eduation
it will take funding
it will take things to get worse
im afraid
before something gets done

compost wont fix these infections
