(Era of Light) Infections at hospitals claim nearly 100,000 people in the U.S. per year while sickening about 2 million. However, a new study has found that hospital beds in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) made from copper harbor an average of 95 percent less bacteria than traditional hospital beds—drastically lowering the risk to which patients are exposed during their hospital stays. ➤➤

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are a common nuisance, disproportionately afflicting women, most of who will have a UTI at some point in their lives.
