(NaturalNews) Move over methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), there is a new "superbug" in town. Reports from CBS 2 in Los Angeles say that a deadly new bacteria known as CRKP is rapidly making the rounds in hospitals and care facilities throughout Southern California. According to reports, the bacteria has no known cure, and it may never have one.

CRKP, also known as Carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae, is not actually a new superbug. As early as 2006, it was known to have spread throughout an Israeli hospital, and shortly thereafter to every hospital in Israel (http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/554704). And now, it is becoming a serious problem worldwide.

ABC 7 in Los Angeles quotes its own Dr. Richard Besser who stated that CRKP is "very fatal" and that it kills roughly 40 percent of people who contract it (http://abclocal.go.com/kabc/story?section=ne...). And reports indicate that 350 people in the Los Angeles area already became infected with CRKP within a seven-month time frame last year.

Some experts are blaming a lack of new antibiotic drug development as the reason why CRKP and other superbugs are allegedly incurable. But inquiry into superbugs has actually revealed that overuse of antibiotics is to blame for their existence in the first place, whether it is humans taking too many antibiotics for minor ailments, or factory farmers giving them to animals to accelerate their growth and cover up filthy, disease-ridden conditions.

Last year, a study published in the journal Science revealed that superbugs appear to be the direct descendants of mutated bacteria created as a result of the introduction of synthetic antibiotic drugs. By analyzing the course of mutation of MRSA over the years, scientists were able to pinpoint antibiotics and their overuse as the primary culprit (http://www.naturalnews.com/028479_superbugs_...).

When taken by humans, antibiotics actually destroy all the good bacteria in the gut along with the bad, which ends up destroying proper immune function. Without balanced and healthy gut flora, the body is essentially crippled from being able to ward off harmful pathogens, including deadly superbugs (http://www.naturalnews.com/superbugs.html).
