Hurry Down Doomsday (The Bugs Are Taking Over)

Three reasons to hate bugs:

1. They can kill babies.

A survey has found disease-causing microbes in dried baby food products.

Among the bugs found by scientists at the Nottingham Trent University was a bacterium called Enterobacter sakazakii – which can cause fatal meningitis.

Although bacterium usually poses little threat, it can be particularly dangerous for premature babies and those with weakened immune systems.

2. They can cause problems for kosher Jews.

Orthodox Jews in New York have become concerned that the city’s drinking water may not be kosher because it contains tiny crustaceans known as copepods.

The organisms, which measure about a millimeter long, first came to the attention of Jewish leaders in Brooklyn two weeks ago, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

3. They can cause people to do stupid things.

A Peruvian school teacher blinded four of her pupils and left 20 suffering from severe eye irritation after she used a traditional hair shampoo to wash away hair lice, parents of the children and medical staff said Tuesday.

The state school teacher used a mixture of alcohol and seeds from the cherimoya fruit on the children, aged between 4 and 5 years old, Monday to rid a local bout of hair lice in the remote coastal town of Paijan, 355 miles north of Lima.

The mixture had run down into the children’s eyes and “has affected four children who cannot see. It has damaged their retinas,” an assistant nurse at a hospital in Paijan, who declined to be named, told Reuters.

And speaking of bugs, they will probably be the only survivors if the world believes what Iran says, and does not act.
