Superbugs news, articles and information:
|11/3/2016 - A recent U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study found that antibiotic-resistant superbugs are easily transmitted within hospital environments, often via nurses' clothing and patients' bed rails.
The study looked at how superbugs are spread in medical facilities, by tracking the...|
|11/3/2016 - For many Americans, antibiotics have become a standard routine when they get sick. Since the 1940s, these drugs have significantly reduced illness and death from bacterial infections. However, they are not the go-to fix for everything.
Conditions such as a sore throat or bronchitis are usually caused...|
|10/16/2016 - Do you spray Roundup on the weeds in your yard? Do you get prescribed antibiotics by your medical doctor the second you have symptoms of sickness, like a sore throat, a stuffy nose, or maybe some yellow or green mucus? Do you eat meat that's not labeled organic?
In each of these ways, you could be...|
|10/12/2016 - With superbugs well on their way to dominating the world, scientists are looking for new and effective ways to stop this growing threat.

|8/19/2016 - It's no conspiracy that antibiotics are used during the vaccine manufacturing phase to stave off bacterial contamination of tissue culture cells where the dangerous, infectious disease viruses are nurtured in chicken egg embryo and aborted human albumin (fetal tissue and blood). These so-called "trace...|
|7/12/2016 - We currently have a major public health crisis on our hands, and very little is being done to address it. Our said-to-be first line of defense against harmful pathogens, antibiotics, is quickly becoming irrelevant due to growing antibiotic resistance – because apparently all those nasty critters...|
|5/15/2016 - Superbugs are slowly taking over our world. Unless we take action, common infections could turn into unstoppable killers. Some experts claim that drug-resistant bacteria may end up being deadlier than cancer when all antibiotics start to fail.

|7/29/2015 12:17:52 PM - Every year, 75,000 people die in the United States from infections that they acquired while in the hospital. Every one of those deaths is considered preventable by good hygiene practices.
Embracing the philosophy that zero hospital-acquired infections is an achievable, reasonable and important goal,...|
|6/16/2015 - It's a trend that has swept through hospitals and medical clinics: the use of anti-bacterial wet wipes and alcohol-based cleaning gels that are meant to prevent the spread of disease. However, these items are actually creating ideal conditions for the spread of disease to the extent that "superbugs"...|
|4/28/2015 - It has now been proven in laboratory testing that drug-resistant bacteria beat down your immune system if you smoke cigarettes, meaning the bacteria that are exposed to cigarette smoke are MORE resistant to your immune system, including MRSA, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, the antibiotic-resistant...|
|2/21/2015 - Measles fear-mongering is all the rage right now, but lesser-publicized reports about deadly superbugs suggest that a much bigger public health threat might be your local hospital. Over the past several years, nearly a dozen patients at Virginia Mason Medical Center (VMMC) in Seattle, Washington, have...|
|10/10/2014 - Dictator Obama has signed yet another executive order that altogether bypasses Congress, this time to address the growing threat of "superbugs" that no longer respond to common antibiotics.

|4/11/2013 - Scientists have found there's a way to dramatically prevent serious, life-threatening infections-- including those caused by especially dangerous and hard-to-treat superbugs. It doesn't involve Big Pharma drugs or toxin-laden chemical treatments. Instead, the germ-busting substance is the metal copper....|
|3/11/2013 - While globalists like Bill Gates are feverishly working on ways to reduce human population through vaccines, GMOs and abortions, an even more effective population killer is now emerging: drug-resistant strains of "gram-negative" bacteria: Superbugs.
The global abuse of antibiotics and the rise of...|
|2/20/2013 - Antibiotic-resistant superbugs kill 48,000 Americans each year -- roughly the same number of American soldiers who died in the entire Vietnam War. This data was published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, and the data is from 2006. It's certainly much worse today, and the health care costs related...|
|2/6/2013 - In the very near future, an "apocalyptic scenario" will more than likely emerge in which simple infections become deadly killers that are completely untreatable using modern medicine. This is the opinion of several prominent medical experts, including the U.K.'s Chief Medical Officer Dame Sally Davies,...|
|12/7/2012 - Contact with copper can prevent bacteria from exchanging genetic material and even kill them, making it a potent resource in the fight against the spread of drug-resistant superbugs, according to a study conducted at the University of Southampton, England and published in the journal mBio.
|11/20/2012 - There's little argument -- even from mainstream medicine -- that too many doctors routinely prescribe antibiotics for illnesses, such as the common cold, for which these prescription drugs do nothing. The result is a potentially nightmarish proliferation of antibiotic resistant superbugs. Bottom line:...|
|9/11/2012 - Like Chicken Little running around screaming, "the sky is falling," too many mainstream media and doctors have issued dire warnings about deadly bacteria that are no longer susceptible to antibiotics, leaving people virtually helpless if Big Pharma doesn't soon find more drugs that can kill potentially...|
|8/30/2012 - The age of antibiotics is over. It's history. There are no more patented chemical antibiotics in the pipeline.

|11/6/2011 - Many people still assume that hospitals are generally clean, sanitized places where harmful pathogens would have a difficult time surviving. But a new study published in the American Journal of Infection Control says otherwise, having found that nearly half of all hospital rooms tested were contaminated...|
|8/30/2011 - Mainstream medicine has lots of statistics about two types of serious and even deadly illnesses -- foodborne diseases and antibiotic resistant infections, also known as superbugs -- but not many ways to treat them successfully. That may soon change, however, thanks to research by scientists from the...|
|7/12/2011 - The danger of superbugs -- infectious germs that are resistant to a host of Big Pharma's drug arsenal -- a growing and deadly problem in the 21st century.

|1/2/2004 10:40:21 AM - It takes prescription antibiotics to breed superbugs, and many U.S.
doctors are more than happy to keep on prescribing -- even when patients
don't need the drugs. But when infections become resistant to even the
most "powerful" antibiotics on the menu, where should you turn? To
nature, of course,...|
