What causes gangrene?

    There are two kinds of gangrene, dry gangrene and moist gangrene. Dry gangrene is caused by cutting off the blood supply to an extremity and occurs slowly. Moist gangrene is caused by a festering infection in an untreated wound.

      nelsam though you may be right, there are other causes as well.
      Gangrene could occur if one self smokes, has diabetes (Type 2 and 1), HIV, is obese, has a disfuntion occurring with blood vessels, and/or consuming any bacteria relating to anaerobic. although bacteria is everywhere, eating things such as soil and sand could well over give you gangrene.
