C.Diff (Clostridium Difficile)
This is something that can live in many peoples intestines causing no
harm at all and can be treated easily. Unfortunatly it forms spores which can
survive a long time in the environment, around toilets, on the floor and even
spreads in the air. This can put the weak and vulnerable at great risk and can
cause severe illness. It develops when certain antibiotics disterb the normal
bacteria in the gut. This is when C.Diff takes over and the toxins produced can
cause serious gastro-enteritis
