A recent US paper has looked at rates of deep infection over a 40 year period.

The rate has doubled from 11.4 per 100000 person years to 24.4 infections per 100000 person years.

They cannot come up with a reason for this observation.

I wonder why that is so. What about nutrition, obesity and diabetes for a starter? We’re obviously getting unhealthy and I think it’s our nutrition or lack of it.
