Deaths soar from hospital superbugs

Deaths soar from hospital superbugs:

Almost 37,000 NHS patients have died after catching either the MRSA or C-difficile hospital superbugs during Labour’s time in office, official figures show.

The two virulent infections claimed 36,674 lives between 1997 and 2007. Of those, 26,208 were from Clostridium difficile and 10,466 from MRSA. Numbers dying in England and Wales from C-difficile soared from 975 in 1999 to 8,324 last year, a jump of about 850 per cent, while fatalities linked to MRSA grew from 386 in 1997 to 1,593 in 2007.

Conservative shadow Health Secretary Andrew Lansley, who obtained the figures from the Department of Health, said: ‘It’s tragic that so many patients have had their lives cut short because of Labour’s failure to do what it takes to root out hospital infections.’ He said hospitals needed to improve hygiene, introduce better prescribing of antibiotics and create more isolation facilities to stop infections spreading.

The 50-Year Cover-Up Killing Millions

The 50-Year Cover-Up Killing Millions:

Antibiotic-resistant infections affect 2 million Americans annually, leading to the death of at least 23,000.1 Even more die from complications related to the infections, and the numbers are steadily growing.

According to the Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA), just one organism — methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus, better known as MRSA — kills more Americans each year than the combined total of emphysema, HIV/AIDS, Parkinson’s disease, and homicide.2

Dr. Arjun Srinivasan: We’ve Reached ‘The End of Antibiotics, Period’

FYI.

The scientists stopped developing new strands of antibiotics and just mixed the old ones as planned by the elitists.

We were (and still are) pumping antibiotics into livestock as if there was no tomorrow and bacteria soon started to develop resistance against them and this really is the planned end of  antibiotics, period.

Personally I think that we don’t need those immune system destroying antibiotics (anti = against, bios = life) and that nature offers far better and more potent substances that can easily replace them once and for all.

I know what I am talking about because I personally saw what happens when you give sick people drops, suppositories and even better infusions containing those totally natural substances.

The treatment cured cancer, Lyme disease, malaria etc. …. BUT is NOT wanted by the establishment.

MRSA is a piece of cake.

Bacteria will not be able to develop resistence against those substances and they are not negatively affecting our mitochondria unlike antibiotics.

The optimal dosage for stem cell transplants and bone marrow transplantation has yet to be determined.

Top Expert: Antibiotic-Resistant Diseases Pose ‘Apocalyptic’ Threat

From the article:

“What that means is that we’ve had to actually reach back into the archives, if you will. We’ve had to dust off the shelves [and revisit] some older antibiotics that we haven’t used in many, many years. We stopped using them because they were very toxic, and as new antibiotics came about that weren’t so toxic, we of course stopped using these older antibiotics.

Like colistin?

Colistin is a great example. And now we’re back. We’re using a lot of colistin, and we’re using more of it every year. It’s very toxic. We don’t like to use it. It damages the kidneys. But we’re forced to use it in a lot of instances.

But what’s really worrisome is that now we’re seeing bacteria that are resistant even to colistin, so there are infections for which we have really nothing to offer a patient. We’re in a situation where the patient will get better or the patient won’t get better based on whatever the defenses the patient might have, but we have nothing to offer them to help them get better.”


Dr. Arjun Srinivasan: We’ve Reached “The End of Antibiotics, Period” (PBS Frontline, Oct 22, 2013):

Explain to me why the discovery of antibiotics was so important for medicine.

Antibiotics were one of [the most], if not the most, transformational discoveries in all of medicine. Infections are something that we struggled to treat for many, many years, for centuries before the advent of antibiotics, and infections were a major cause of death before the advent of antibiotics.

The Truth Comes Finally Out: 2009 H1N1 Flu Pandemic ‘Deaths’ Of Children Were Actually Caused By MRSA Superbug

Truth comes out: 2009 H1N1 flu pandemic ‘deaths’ of children were actually caused by MRSA (NaturalNews, Nov. 7, 2011):

Remember two years ago when every news show featured hysterical reports about the so-called H1N1 pandemic and how the supposed killer flu was striking down healthy kids? True, many previously healthy children became critically ill, developing severe pneumonia and respiratory failure. And some tragically died after being diagnosed with H1N1. But was that really the accurate explanation of what caused their death?

According to the largest nationwide investigation to date of the flu in children who became critically ill, scientists from Children’s Hospital Boston have found another reason to explain the severity of the youngsters illness. It turns out that it most likely wasn’t H1N1 alone that caused healthy children to become so ill many died.

Instead, these kids were unknowingly infected with something else. That additional infection, the superbug known as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), spiked the risk for flu-related deaths 8-fold in children who were otherwise believed to be totally healthy before they became ill.

Almost all of these children who were found to be infected with the superbug were immediately treated with vancomycin, considered to be best treatment for MRSA. Yet they died despite being administered this powerful antibiotic and their deaths were blamed on the flu. But the new research suggests it was the MRSA that played a huge role in killing these children.

MRSA Strain That Eludes Traditional Tests Found in Cow’s Milk, Study Finds (Bloomberg, Jun 3, 2011):

British scientists have discovered a new strain of the drug-resistant germ known as MRSA in cow’s milk and some evidence that the animals could be a source of the infection in humans.

University of Cambridge researchers were led to the discovery while studying an infection of the animals’ udders, according to an article published today in the U.K journal The Lancet Infectious Diseases. Tests showed that people in Scotland, England and Denmark carried the new variant of MRSA, or methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, and that the bacteria can elude the usual means of detection.

60 Percent of Pigs in Slaughterhouses Contaminated With MRSA


Pig transport

One in ten pigs gets the MRSA bacterium in livestock transport trucks, while sixty percent of pigs in slaughterhouses have the bacterium. Wageningen University veterinary researcher Els Broens finds this ‘very disconcerting’.

Broens trailed 117 pigs from the farm to the slaughterhouse. She inspected them for the presence of MRSA before and after the journey to the slaughterhouse, and after they were sedated before the slaughter. While none of the pigs had MRSA before the journey, 10 percent of them tested MRSA-positive afterwards. After the sedation in the slaughterhouse, the bacterium was found in sixty percent of the pigs. This research work was carried out jointly by Wageningen UR, the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) and the Animal Health Service (GD).

Waiting area

The pigs en route and in the slaughterhouse were not infected with MRSA, implies Broens. ‘The resistant bacterium was lodged in their noses but infection did not take place.’ The livestock trucks were cleaned after every journey. The animal waiting areas in the slaughterhouse were cleaned daily, but not throughout the day. Therefore, one batch of pigs could have infected another. In contaminated livestock trucks, twenty percent of the pigs became contracted the bacterium. In trucks which were not contaminated, no such cases occurred.

US: Meat contaminated with deadly MRSA bacteria is being sold to consumers

Meat contaminated by a potentially lethal infection is being sold to consumers — creating a public health threat that has largely flown under the the radar due to powerful industry interests and lax accountability at the federal agency in charge of ensuring food safety, according to recent studies and a prominent investigative journalist.

“It makes salmonella look like a picnic,” is how David Kirby, an investigative journalist who has written about MRSA, a life-threatening pathogen, described it in an interview with Consumer Ally. MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is an antibiotic-resistant staph infection that kills about 20,000 Americans — more than the number of people who die from AIDS — each year.

MRSA affects livestock and ultimately supermarket meat. Previously associated mostly with infections acquired in hospitals, nursing homes or by people with compromised immune systems, for the past 15 years MRSA is increasingly being traced to industrial animal feeding operations, so-called factory farms, where much of the nation’s protein comes from.

A number of clinical and academic studies bear this out: a recent Canadian study showed nearly 14% of pork chops (about one in seven) and 6.3% of ground pork sold in supermarkets carried the contamination — taken together, 9.6% of all pork samples. Additionally, 5.6% of the beef and 1.2% of the poultry carried the bug. The bacterium was also found in veal, lamb and other meats.

Another report, by Louisiana State University, found 5.5% of pork samples and 3.3% of beef samples taken from local supermarkets were contaminated. Yet another – this one out of the pork industry’s lobby arm, the National Pork Board — found MRSA in 3% of pork samples. That means a family buying raw pork twice a week brings MRSA home an average of three times a year.
