3 MRSA epidemic in hospitals a bacterial infection commonly contracted in hospitals and long-term care centers (nursing homes). Attacks weak immune systems and eventually infects all of the internal organs and entire body. a bacterial infection commonly contracted in hospitals and long-term care centers (nursing homes). Attacks weak immune systems and eventually infects all of the internal organs and entire body.

4 MRSA In ,360 people contracted MRSA and 18,650 of those people died (1 in 5) Very easily transmitted In ,360 people contracted MRSA and 18,650 of those people died (1 in 5) Very easily transmitted

5 Killer Paint New nanotechnology paint enriched with Titanium Dioxide destroys disease and dirt on the surface when exposed to fluorescent lights Originally the paint was created to control the spread of MRSA New nanotechnology paint enriched with Titanium Dioxide destroys disease and dirt on the surface when exposed to fluorescent lights Originally the paint was created to control the spread of MRSA

6 Titanium Dioxide A chemical compound used in every day products such as: –Paints –Coatings –Inks –Foods –Medicines –Toothpastes A chemical compound used in every day products such as: –Paints –Coatings –Inks –Foods –Medicines –Toothpastes Skim Milk has added Titanium Dioxide to make it appear whiter.

8 Controversy of Titanium Dioxide People are increasingly concerned and opposed to using Titanium Dioxide Some say it could be considered a carcinogen to humans, after it caused small tumors in rats (after hours of inhalation) People are increasingly concerned and opposed to using Titanium Dioxide Some say it could be considered a carcinogen to humans, after it caused small tumors in rats (after hours of inhalation)

9 In Conclusion… Evidence of this paint being harmful to humans is not sufficient This paint could ultimately save thousands of lives every year. Evidence of this paint being harmful to humans is not sufficient This paint could ultimately save thousands of lives every year.
