    In 2015 so far, seven people have been infected and two killed by a rare, potentially deadly bacteria that thrives in the warm saltwater of Florida beaches, state health officials said on Monday.

    Last year, 32 cases of Vibrio vulnificus were reported in Florida and over 85 percent of infections occur between May and October, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    "People can get infected with Vibrio vulnificus when they eat raw shellfish," Florida Health Department spokeswoman Mara Burger said in a statement. "Since it is naturally found in warm marine waters, people with open wounds can be exposed to Vibrio vulnificus through direct contact with seawater."

    If the bacterium are consumed through contaminated food, symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain.

    Raw shellfish, Grady Judd... In about ten-to-fifteen years that human cesspool might be somewhat habitable.

    Somewhat.

    You could say that about every Cuban joint I've been to from the panhandle to Key west.

    There should be a more effective way to keep that white trash from relocating from New York and new Jersey in the first place.
