(sent by a friend)


a stock clerk was sent to clean up a storeroom in Maui, Hawaii. when he got back, he was complaining that the storeoom was really filthy and that he had noticed dried mouse or rat droppings in some areas.

a couple of days later, he started to feel he was coming down with a stomach flu, complained of sore joints and headaches, and began vomiting. he went to bed and never really got up again. within two days he was severly ill and weak. his blodd sugar count was down to 66, and his face and eyeballs were yellow. he was rushed to the emergency at Pali-Momi, where he was diagnosed to be suffering from massive organ failure. he died shortly befor midnite.

no one would have made the connection between his job and his death, had it not been for a doctor who specifically asked if he had been in a warehouse or exposed to dried rate or mouse droppings at any time.said there is a virus called (much like the Hanta Virus) that lives in dried rat and mouse droppings. once dried, these droppings are like dust and can easily be breathed in or ingested if a person does not wear protective gear or fails to wash face and hands thoroguhly.

an autopsy was performed on the clerk to verify the doctors suspicions.....

this is why it is extremely important to ALWAYS carefully rinse off the tops of canned foods, or canned soft drink/sodas and to wipe off pasta boxes or cereal boxes or any boxed food items. almost everything you buy at the supermarket is always stored in a warehouse at one time or another and often times stores have rodents. most of us remember to wash fruits and veggies but never think of boxes and cans.

the ugly truth is, even the most modern, upper class, super store have rats and mice. and their warehouse most assuredly does!

whenever you buy canned soft drinks, please make sure that you wash the top with running water and soap, or if that is not available, use a straw.
