A come back is being made in our hospitals and no its not a cure. Its the reintroduction of Super-bugs. These super-bugs are drug resistant bugs that have become more powerful than any of the medicines known to fight them.
With all the hands sanitizers and sanitizing soaps, sprays and all the thousands of other products currently available. Scientists have discovered that we are being too clean for our own good. Then the super-bugs can attack us and even when we’re recovering in a hospital.
Some doctors have advised not to constantly use hand sanitizers but a regular soap in every day hand washing. That will help you in the long run because we need some good bacterial to help our anti-bodies be strong in our bodies.

In most survival courses what is taught is, if you are presented with a situation where you have no fresh drinking water a available.
There are a few ideas on the topic, some say that it is too salty since your body is secretting its own salt content. Therefore it would not be a very good option. But if boiling urine or filtering the urine to remove the salt that could help if no other potable water were present.
This they claim is a last resort, but many mariners throughout the ages have done this to survive.
What do you think, could you do this if it meant your life was on the line?
