It's my view, in light of the 60 Minutes report, that MRSA has its roots in overprescription of antibiotics as well as the abuse of bacteria killing detergents rather than using "clean" petrol-based detergents (like the Zalo basic of Norway, old variety) and alcohol-based countermeasures! You can also include chlorine-based detergents and the rest of the traditional products (esp. the ammoniac-based). In fact, I'd draw a line in time when to STOP developing new ones (and I think this will serve the developing countries well)!
Hand-soap and general body-soap should also be of the "non-bacteria" killing kind, that is, it's not a specialised detergent for killing bacteria, i.e., it consists chemically of the traditional set of detergents. So the conclusion and advise with this, is of course to use the traditional products, enhanced, but only up to a point, for the daily use. Hospitals use of course the whole range as they see fit and as they act under expert ethics and professionalism, esp. the knowledge!
As with cancer, you die from the rest of the conditions (by failing immune system, etc). There is no use to try to dodge this, outside the hospital treatment!
