    Most of us have dutifully gone to get a Tetanus shot when we stepped on a rusty nail, but few have any real concept of what Tetanus is and why it is dangerous.  So What is Tetanus?

    Tetanus (from the Greek word tetanos, meaning tight)  is an infection caused by the bacteria Clostridium Tetani.  The bacteria produces spores (inactive bacteria-to-be) that primarily live in the soil or the feces of animals. Early diagnosis and treatment is imperative if you are to save someone with the infection.  Joe Alton MD discusses the infection in detail in his latest video.
