Recently, there was a terrifying story in the headlines, reporting that 13-year old football player nearly lost his hand due to a minor sports related injury. According to the young man’s mother, he received a small cut on his finger, from his football helmet. Within hours, he was a very sick kid, diagnosed with a flesh eating disease. Most parents fear concussions, pulled ligament, or broken bones when they send their child onto the sports field. But what about the tiny unseen dangers that are lurking inside the locker room and on your child’s sports equipment?
You Need to Know the Dangers Lurking in Sports Equipment

Most bacteria are relatively harmless. However, there are a few that can cause major health problems, and even death. MRSA, Staph, and other nasty bugs are the culprits behind millions of dollars in healthcare expenses every year. The sweaty gloves, pads, socks, and the gear of your typical athlete are the perfect breeding ground for both harmless and devastating bacteria.
And what about Fungi?! Does the term Athlete’s Foot mean anything to you? Locker rooms are notorious for spreading that itchy foot fungus!
