Necrotizing fasciitis don't eat flesh!!! They don't get into the body and then act like your flesh is just on big buffet table! The bacteria release toxins that causes damage to the tissue.

If I'm not mistaken Flesh Eating Bacteria® is a registered trademark of the Walt Disney Company® who's granted the exclusive rights to their infotainment arm ABC News® to use the mark for the purposes of scaring the bejeebers out of millions of people each and every day.


Someone can correct me if I'm mistaken.
