Life-Threatening Bacteria Lurks In Your Sports Gear – Learn To Protect Yourself

Sports Safety:

Health matters in the world of sports. Your level of health determines whether you get to the next round or continue onto the playoffs. Its the determining factor in your sports endeavors and your overall well-being. Anyone who engages in any contact sports is susceptible to cuts and abrasions. Insidious bacteria lurks everywhere. Open wounds allow disease causing bacteria to seep into the bloodstream, overwhelming the body’s defense mechanism.

Infectious diseases are the leading cause of death and illness worldwide!*
Did you know… Disease causing bacteria are found in sports equipment such as goalie gloves, elbow pads, shoulder pads, and all types of footwear including boots. The small crevices in your sports equipment carry microbial loads and when infused with sweat & mucous the environment can become home to lethal diseases such as MRSA (a strain of staph bacteria prevalent in the sports industry).

An effective way to reduce the risk of infectious diseases and fungi associated with sports is something quite simple. Moisture removal is most successful at health maintenance and keeping dangerous bacteria and fungi at bay. The answer to protecting yourself, family and teammates from infectious diseases is to: keep your gear dry.
