lol, where do most bacteria come from? Well, where do we come from. I won't get into all that, except to say that its possible flesh eating bacteria has been here longer than we have, but seems to be a new thing because the media just caught hold of it, and it is pretty dramatic. The best suggestion I can make is to clean any wounds you get, and put a bandaid on them, as the flesh eating bacteria, from what i understand, correct me someone if i'm wrong, but i believe it has to enter your body through a wound or something like that, as it is not called skin eating bacteria. All in all, it is not something i would expect to hear that my friends or family got, but i would expect to hear about it in the news now and then.
