What causes antibiotic resistance? - Kevin Wu
View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/how-antibiotics-become-resistant-over-time-kevin-wu Right now, you are inhabited by trillions of microorganisms. Many of these bacteria are harmless (or even helpful!), but there are a few strains of ‘super bacteria’ that are pretty nasty -- and they’re growing resistant to our antibiotics. Why is this happening? Kevin Wu details the evolution of this problem that presents a big challenge for the future of medicine. Lesson by Kevin Wu, animation by Brett Underhill.

Dangers of The Overuse of Antibiotics | Dr. Weston
Healthcare seems to have come full circle as it moved away from natural cures into synthetics, but has now begun to look closer at the natural world once more for medicine. Part of this may be due to the new resistant superbugs that have begun to make things more difficult. Dr. Weston discussed antibiotics. Antibiotics inhibit the growth of or even kill bacteria. These have saved countless lives and improved many conditions for many years. Originally antibiotics came only from natural sources, but as demand and our knowledge grew, we replaced these with synthetics. Superbugs were predicted early on, but we ignored the warnings. Regrettably, the dire warnings have now become a reality. There are strains of mutated, antibiotic-resistant bacteria that ignore even our most effective antibiotics or even eat them like candy. We overuse antibiotics or use them incorrectly. About 80% of the antibiotics sold in the US are used for livestock. This overuse has created our new problems, but antibiotics also come with risks of allergy, side effects, and the destruction of helpful bacteria we need. Natural antibiotics abound in our world, without all the dangerous side effects, like garlic, pau d'arco, olive leaf, cloves, sage, cinnamon, and ionic silver. Our natural world has many plants, herbs, and foods that can offer so much more than we know. -- Subscribe to our channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=sunwarriortribe -- Visit us at: http://www.sunwarrior.com/ Like us on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/sunwarrior ‪Follow us on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Sunwarrior Hang out with us on Google+: http://plus.google.com/100431369190586473063/posts Follow us on Pinterest: https://pinterest.com/sunwarriortribe/

Superbugs That Resist Antibiotics Can Evolve in 11 Days | I Contain Multitudes
Antibiotics like penicillin have a critical role in medicine, but using them is not a decision to be taken lightly. Before the discovery of penicillin and other antibiotics, a cut on your knee or an ear infection could kill you. In 1928, a physician named Alexander Fleming found that a mold in one of his petri dishes was killing the bacteria he was trying to grow. This strain of mold formed the basis for one of the most significant medical discoveries in history: penicillin. Antibiotics soon became lifesavers, and so precious that unused penicillin was reclaimed from patients’ urine to give to others. However, even back then, Fleming knew that bacteria could become resistant to penicillin. In this episode, Ed Yong explains how serious the situation can become: “Bacteria have always been evolving ways of resisting the things that try to kill them. And now the overuse of antibiotics is exacerbating that problem.” Ed looks at shocking new footage of mutating bacteria thriving in antibiotics a thousand times stronger than can kill their non-superbug ancestors.

TVCentNews July 12 Superbugs MRSA caused by overuse of antibiotics
Environmental Science and Research has just issued a report stating the prevalence of MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) in New Zealand has increased significantly over the last 10 years (2002-2011), cumulating in a massive 37.0% increase between 2010 and 2011; the largest single-year rise during the last 10 years. MRSA known as "Superbugs" are infections resistant to antibiotics. MRSA evolved through the overuse of antibiotics by the community as a whole. These superbugs mutate and have become resistant to each new generation of antibiotics. This means new and more powerful antibiotics have to be made, in the short term this works; the problem is that over time the bacteria becomes resistant to the newer antibiotics. This potential "bacterial time bomb" has been known to exist for over 20 years. The solution

Save our Antibiotics
Afshin Rattansi goes underground with Coilin Nunan, principal Scientific Advisor to the Alliance to Save our Antibiotics, on the overuse of antibiotics in the UK and globally. Feeding antibiotics to livestock is leading to resistance and the increase of strains of MRSA and E-Coli. With the risk of a million deaths globally by 2025 as a result of antibiotic resistance, there are calls to stop the excessive use of antibiotics before we return to an age before they were discovered, as even treatments like chemotherapy and operations like hip replacements could be put at risk if antibiotics can’t be prescribed.

Resistance to antibiotics is one of the greatest threats to modern health, experts say. The warning from England's chief medical officer and the Health Protection Agency comes amid reports of growing problems with resistant strains of bugs such as E. coli and gonorrhoea. They said many antibiotics were being used unnecessarily for mild infections, helping to create resistance. And they urged patients to take more care with how they used medicines.

Outsmarting Bacteria: Confronting Antibiotic Resistance
"The time to act is now — before we lose these "miracle" drugs for good. We need to think twice each time we plan to give an antibiotic course" Associate Professor Tom Gottlieb Antibiotics are invaluable therapeutic agents that have saved many lives. They usually kill bacteria or stop them from multiplying so that the immune system can mount a response to fight the infection. They should only be used to help fight infection when the immune system needs extra help to overcome the invading organisms. There is growing concern that many bacteria are becoming resistant to antibiotics due to the widespread presence of antimicrobial drugs in the biosphere. There have also been fewer discoveries of new antibiotic drugs and a serious problem of antibiotic overuse. The widespread overuse of antibiotics is believed to have led to an increasing problem of multi-resistant bacterial pathogens in both hospital settings and increasingly in community settings. This program looks at: ways to prevent antibiotic resistance; antibiotic resistance and the three keys to control; antimicrobial 'stewardship' , surveillance and infection control; hospital and clinic procedures and policies which can assist with antibiotic usage; the principles of antibiotic use - the Antimicrobial Creed; prophylactic, empirical and directed therapies; antibiotic use in the General Practice setting- including appropriate prescribing and patient education and compliance; the evidence-based Therapeutic Guidelines on antibiotic use; and where to get advice and assistance.

Reduce the Side Effects of Antibiotics
Did you know that Bio-K Plus helps reduce the risk of suffering from side effects commonly associated with antibiotics? Discover more here : http://www.biokplus.com/en-ca/reduce-the-side-effects-of-antibiotics The intestinal flora’s balance is essential to good health, but it is sensitive to antibiotics. This type of medication can potentially trouble the diversity and balance of the bacteria making up the intestinal flora. Of course, antibiotics are sometimes necessary to our well-being, as they fight harmful bacteria. But they can also eliminate good bacteria that benefit our health. This can lead to an unbalanced intestinal flora, which makes it vulnerable to infections and harmful bacteria such as Clostridium difficile (more commonly known as C. difficile). Antibiotics can also lead to undesirable side effects, including gas, bloating, constipation and diarrhea, which can affect 1 out of 3 patients on antibiotics. Depending on the type and dosage of antibiotics prescribed, these side effects can occur for up to 8 weeks after the end of the treatment. Thankfully, you can protect yourself while taking antibiotics and minimise their side effects by taking Bio-K Plus! This probiotic supplement contains good bacteria that contribute to a balanced intestinal flora that can create a protective barrier to fight the development of harmful bacteria. Numerous clinical studies have proven that Bio-K Plus is useful in reducing the incidence of diarrhea associated to antibiotics and to the C. difficile bacteria. Did you know that every dose of Bio-K+ contains 50 billion probiotics? That’s the same amount you would find in 50 individual containers of probiotic-enriched yogurt. Bio-K+ is also the only supplement to contain 3 unique and patented strains of probiotic bacteria. Furthermore, unlike many other probiotic supplements, Bio-K+ ensures good bacteria’s survival until they reach the intestin. The probiotics’ effect is therefore maximised. So next time you take antibiotics, don’t forget to take them with Bio-K+, the number 1 probiotic brand recommended by pharmacists.

How Seeds, Soil Life, GMOs and Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria will Impact Your Famiilies’ Future
Expert Panel Host: David Montgomery, Claire Cummings, Roger Greenlaw David Montgomery - Dirt, soil, call it what you want—it's everywhere we go. It is the root of our existence, supporting our feet, our farms, our cities. However, we are running out of dirt, and it's no laughing matter. Learn how we are—and have long been—using up Earth's soil. Once bare of protective vegetation and exposed to wind and rain, cultivated soils erode bit by bit, slowly enough to be ignored in a single lifetime but fast enough over centuries to limit the lifespan of civilizations. We see how soil has shaped us and we have shaped soil—as society after society has risen, prospered, and plowed through a natural endowment of fertile dirt. The recent rise of organic and no-till farming offers hope for a new agricultural revolution that might help us avoid the fate of previous civilizations. Claire Hope Cummings - exposes the stories behind the rise of industrial agriculture and plant biotechnology, the fall of public interest science, and the folly of patenting seeds. She examines how farming communities are coping with declining water, soil, and fossil fuels, as well as with new commercial technologies. Will genetically engineered and "terminator" seeds lead to certain promise, as some have hoped, or are we embarking on a path of uncertain peril? Will the "doomsday vault" under construction in the Arctic, designed to store millions of seeds, save the genetic diversity of the world's agriculture? To answer these questions and others, Cummings examines the plight of farmers who have planted transgenic seeds and scientists who have been persecuted for revealing the dangers of modified genes. At each turn, Cummings looks deeply into the relationship between people and plants. She examines the possibilities for both scarcity and abundance and tells the stories of local communities that are producing food and fuel sustainably and providing for the future. The choices we make about how we feed ourselves now will determine whether or not seeds will continue as a generous source of sustenance and remain the common heritage of all humanity. It comes down to this: whoever controls the future of seeds controls the future of life on earth. This is a powerful reminder that what's at stake right now is nothing less than the nature of the future. Roger Greenlaw - “One of the unique outcomes I observe in my practice is when you treat the root cause of one condition, (obesity, heartburn and constipation caused by poor diet, inactivity and stress) many of the patient’s other conditions begin to improve simultaneously, (blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar and resting pulse). When you treat one, you treat them all.” Now at the end of a decade of treating patients with a holistic approach Greenlaw said he finds that almost all his patients are interested in lifestyle change. “Most diseases in our society are lifestyle related, and therefore preventable and modifiable by self care.”His recommendation to other practitioners is embrace the arrival of the age of Lifestyle Medicine and the modification of disease through self care and natural therapies.“Lifestyle Medicine may be our best treatment ally yet to facilitate disease prevention, reversal and rehabilitation,” Greenlaw said.

Learn Biology: Good Bacteria vs. Bad Bacteria
Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: http://bit.ly/MMASurgeEp1 Mary Poffenroth, an adjunct professor of biology, discusses the differences between good and bad bacteri. Poffenroth discusses how both types of bacteria exist in abundance throughout the world. Without bacteria, humankind would cease to exist. Bacteria are not always bad, as good bacteria exist within the body and are critical in keeping the body healthy and functional. Bacteria are prokaryotic organisms, which do not have nuclei.http://www.biology4kids.com/files/micro_prokaryote.html  Bacteria exist everywhere on the planet, and thrive in various conditions. They are necessary for an ecosystem to flourish and humankind would not be able to survive without bacteria.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IekdfJ-7Zyk  Whether bacteria are considered "good" or "bad" is often determined by their potential harm to the environment and/or humankind. Harmful bacteria are called pathogenic bacteria, or pathogens, which either assume the form of an endotoxin or an exotoxin, and pose a threat to humans by creating bacterial infections within the body.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IekdfJ-7Zyk Examples of these pathogens include E.coli and streptococcus. These bacterial infections can then be treated with antibiotics. Some bacterial infections, such as meningitis and pneumonia, will ultimately result in death if the use of antibiotics is neglected.http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/bacterialinfections.html Benefits of Good Bacteria --------------------------------------------------------------------- Foods with bacteria called probiotics can aid in digestion and ease digestive upset, by making the good bacteria that resides within the human colon multiply and flourish.  Probiotics can be purchased over the counter in supplement form to add to various drinks or snacks, or can often be found in foods such as yogurt and miso.http://www.medicinenet.com/probiotics/article.htm  Good bacteria which reside within the human body also helps to expedite the production of essential vitamins, which keep the body healthy and fully functional.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IekdfJ-7Zyk Bacteria is also beneficial to the environment as it helps to recycle nutrients. Every healthy ecosystem relies on bacteria to maintain balance.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IekdfJ-7Zyk Antibiotic Resistance --------------------------------------------------------------------- The overuse of antibiotics in treating infections can be harmful to individuals and the environment. Antibiotics can kill off the good bacteria which resides within the body that can allow bad bacteria to grow in its place.  The misuse of antibiotics can actually cause other bacteria in the body to mutate and grow resistant to antibiotics in the future.http://www.cdc.gov/drugresistance/about.htmlSome viral infections can be confused with bacterial infections; since viral strains of infections cannot be cured with antibiotics, the misused antibiotics can actually cause other bacteria in the body to mutate and grow resistant to antibiotics in the future.  The bacteria known as MRSA ("Staphylococcus aureus"), which is most often transmitted in hospitals or health care locations, has become drug resistant in recent years, and poses a significant health risk to certain individuals.http://www.cdc.gov/drugresistance/about.html Read more by visiting our page at: http://www.mahalo.com/good-bacteria-vs-bad-bacteria/

McDonald's to Limit Antibiotics in Chicken: "Huge Public Health Win”
On March 4, 2015, McDonald's USA announced that by 2017 all the chicken it buys will have been raised without antibiotics important to human medicine. "That's a huge public health win," says Dr. Gail Hansen, a senior officer for The Pew Charitable Trusts antibiotic resistance project. Overuse of antibiotics in food animals presents a serious and growing threat to human health, because the practice creates new strains of dangerous antibiotic-resistant bacteria, or superbugs. So McDonald's new move is a "big deal," Hansen says. But there's more work to be done. For example, other restaurant chains could mirror McDonald's new policy, poultry producers could make more antibiotics-use data public, and McDonald's could extend its new antibiotics policy to beef and pork.

Researchers Work on One Flu Shot to Cover All Strains
Two groups of American researchers recently announced progress in their efforts to create a single flu vaccine. The goal is to find a universal vaccine that will offer broader coverage against all types of influenza each season. It's possible such a vaccine would even provide long term protection, preparing our immune systems to fight off the flu for many seasons. The challenge in developing such a vaccine has been the flu virus' ability to mutate quickly. Even slight changes to a virus may interfere with our body's ability to control it before it makes us sick. This newly reported single vaccine research focuses on a protein called hemagglutinin, which all influenza virus strains share in common. "There’s a lot of research going on looking at some of these other options, in terms of our target for the influenza vaccine," says Mayo Clinic infectious diseases specialist Pritish Tosh, M.D. Dr. Tosh, who is also a member of the Vaccine Research Group at Mayo Clinic, says the new avenues of investigation are definitely needed. However, he cautions, the single flu vaccine has only been tested in animals and is not yet available. So, he urges everyone to get immunized with the safe and proven vaccines that we already have. "Influenza is real killer. It kills tens of thousands of Americans each year, either directly or through its complications. And we really only have one great way in terms of prevention and that is with [the current] influenza vaccine." Play the video to hear more of Dr. Tosh's comments about different research approaches for improving flu vaccines.

Adios-Adipose.com: Natural Antibiotic Alternatives You Should Be Aware Of
Alexander Fleming discovered the first antibiotic, penicillin, in 1927. Since then, antibiotics – drugs that fight bacterial infections – have saved millions of lives worldwide. The term “antibiotic” refers to both natural and synthetic compounds that destroy or inhibit the growth of susceptible bacteria that cause disease in humans or animals. Patients sometimes ask their doctors for antibiotics to treat a cold, cough, or the flu, each of which is viral and does not respond to antibiotics. Antibiotics kill bacteria, not viruses. Although antibiotics have many beneficial effects, over-use of these medicines has created the new problem of antibiotic resistance. Antibiotic resistance is one of the world’s most critical public health concerns. Antibiotic resistance occurs when bacteria change in a way that reduces or eliminates the effectiveness of drugs, chemicals, or other agents designed to cure or prevent infections. The bacteria survive and continue to multiply, causing more harm. Over the last decade, almost every type of bacteria has become stronger and less responsive to antibiotic treatment. Bacteria and other microorganisms that cause infections are remarkably resilient and can survive drugs designed to kill them. These antibiotic-resistant bacteria can quickly spread to others, threatening the community with a new strain of infectious disease that is more difficult to treat. Currently, roughly 70 percent of bacteria that cause infections in hospitals are resistant to at least one of the drugs most commonly used to treat infections. Tuberculosis, gonorrhea, malaria, and childhood ear infections are just a few of the diseases that are becoming more difficult to treat with antibiotic drugs. A common misconception is that a person’s body becomes resistant to antibiotics. In reality, microbes become resistant to the drugs. Fortunately, a variety of natural ingredients possess powerful antibiotic properties. In this age of the “superbug”, it is wise to become familiar with these infection-fighting alternatives.

Gut Microflora Destroyed During Long Hosptial  Stays w/ John Alverdy, MD
Listen to the Podcast in iTunes: http://highintensityhealth.com/itunes Show Notes-- 4:06 Healing from Surgery and Gut Flora: When you are a surgical patient, you have your procedure, you go home, and you start eating your regular food. You have generally had one shot of antibiotics, which assaults your gut microbiome, but you can rebuild your gut flora quickly at home by resuming your regular diet. There are about 80,000 elective operations done every day and most of us heal quickly at home. 5:00 Longer Hospital Recovery and Gut Biodiversity: Sometimes we have a prolonged recovery, for example after, a car accident, a liver transplant, or burn injuries. In the intensive care unit, even when there is no identified source of infection, doctors will put 80% of us on antibiotics unnecessarily. 6:37 The Consequences of Unnecessary Antibiotics in Prolonged Recovery: It is called ecological collapse of the normal gut biome. Your normal health-promoting microbiome is replaced with a pathobiome. Harmful, pathogenic, bacteria become predominant in your gut. This dysbiosis can directly impair the immune system and directly and adversely affect the outcome. Instead of being better in a day or two, it may take you 2 weeks to recover. 7:23 The Impact of a Pathogenic Gut Microbiome on the Immune System: There is now evidence that your normal gut bacteria drive your entire body’s immune response. Studies in animals show that even a sterile incision distant from the gut heals much worse if you destroy the gut microbiome. 8:25 Overuse of Antibiotics: Dr. Alverdy is glad that we have antibiotics. They save countless lives. Clearly, we are overusing them. Now that we have the molecular tools to understand it and as we have the science to back it up, we can use this science to change the clinical course of treatment. Perhaps, we could narrow the antibiotic’s spectrum or use alternative approaches like delivering the antibiotic to the wound site rather than systemically. 10:36 Chemically Defined Diets Impact Upon Gut Biodiversity: With food, the whole is greater and more powerful than the sum of its parts. Using chemicals that have many of the components of food does not feed the microbiome and does not fully nourish the body. Using chemicals that have the components of the gut flora byproducts does not nourish the body either. Chemically defined diets are inadequate. They do not have the same effect on the microbiome, and thus the immune system, as real food. We cannot eat real food when we are very sick. Dr. Alverdy is hoping that through the sciences of metabolomics, proteomics, and microbial genetics, we will make discoveries that will allow us to better nourish our people and their gut microbiome. 14:15 Prophylactic Probiotics before Surgery: Probiotic supplements offer a few strains of bacteria for the gut. To re-faunate the gut, you would need a multitude of bacterial strains to create the diversity required to maintain your health. 17:25 The Leaky Gut and Endotoxin Relationship: In leaky gut, your gut lining has been compromised and toxins, released by your gut bacteria, leaks into your bloodstream in small amounts, triggering an immune response. Leaky gut is being linked in theory to diseases for which there is no identified infectious agent, like autism, MS, and fibromyalgia. It is unclear whether the endotoxin in the blood is a marker for the problem or it is driving the problem. In Dr. Alverdy’s opinion, it is more likely that the endotoxin is the result of the leaky gut rather than the cause. 18:58 Your Gut is REALLY Smart: Your GI tract is discriminating. It lets the good stuff in and keeps the bad stuff out. It constantly surveys what is in the gut, so it can be ready for anything at any time. It is a very molecularly complex process. Lymph nodes serve as checkpoints where intruders are identified and detoxified. The endotoxin that may seep through a permeable intestine would probably be mostly detoxified. 20:25 Microbial Shifts Post Surgery: In a recent study, gastric bypasses were performed on mice. Their stool microbiome dramatically changed. Pre-surgery stools and post-surgery stools were transplanted into over-weight mice. The overweight mice that received the post-surgery stool lost weight. They also had improved glucose tolerance, improved metabolic syndrome, and improved fatty liver. Gastric bypass, through alterations in the gut microbiome, appears to change energy efficiency and energy regulation. We are nowhere near a place where we can take a pill to implement these changes and lose weight. It could be that people who struggle with their weight all of their lives, have some sort of altered energy balance. They are eating more than

1st US Case of Resistance to Last Resort Drug
(27 May 2016) FOR CLEAN VERSION SEE STORY NUMBER: apus056427 For the first time, a U.S. patient has found to be been infected with bacteria resistant to an antibiotic used as a last resort treatment, scientists said Thursday. The patient - a 49-year-old woman in Pennsylvania - has recovered. But health officials fear that if the resistance spreads to other bacteria, the country may soon see supergerms impervious to all known antibiotics. "It is the end of the road for antibiotics unless we act urgently," Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said during an appearance in Washington. Other countries have already seen multi-drug resistant superbugs that no antibiotic can fight. So far, the United States has not. But this sets the stage for that development, CDC officials said. The woman had gone to a military clinic in Pennsylvania last month and was treated for a urinary tract infection. Initial tests found she was infected with E. coli bacteria, a common variety of germ seen in the gut that often makes its way to the bladder. But the tests showed this E. coli was resistant to antibiotics commonly used first for such infections. She was successfully treated with another kind of antibiotic. But while she has recovered, further testing completed in the last week confirmed that the E. coli was carrying a gene for resistance against the drug colistin. Colistin is an old antibiotic. By the 1970s, doctors had mostly stopped using it because of its harsh side effects. But it was brought back as other antibiotics began losing their effectiveness. It's used against hard-to-treat bacteria that resist one of the last lines of defense, antibiotics called carbapenems. If those germs pick up the colistin-resistance gene, doctors may be out of treatment options, health officials say. The CDC is working with Pennsylvania health officials to interview the woman and her family to try to figure out how she might have picked up the strain. The woman had not traveled outside of the country recently, officials said. The colistin-resistant gene has been seen in animals and people in China, Europe and Canada. Federal officials said Thursday that colistin-resistant E. coli has also been found in a pig in the United States, but there was nothing to link the finding to the Pennsylvania case. Researchers at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, who did the confirmatory tests, reported on the Pennsylvania case Thursday in a journal of the American Society of Microbiology.

Superbug Linked to Chicken Sickens People
. 1)An international team of scientists has identified a new kind of “superbug” -- or strong bacteria -- that has made people sick.They link the development of the superbug to the use of antibiotic drugs in farm animals. 2)The scientists say this new strain of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus -- known as MRSA – sickened at least 10 people in Denmark. They said the bacteria is resistant to several antibiotics and can kill chickens.This strain is not found in Denmark. The researchers believe the Danes likely got sick from it by eating or being close to imported chicken. 3)Most people do not get MRSA from animals used as food. The bacteria usually spreads through person-to-person contact in hospitals or other buildings where people live in small, crowded spaces. Farm workers have a higher risk of staph infections. 4)The researchers compared the strains of MRSA in the 10 Danes to staph infections in other people and in livestock. They found the strain came from poultry -- animals like chickens and turkeys.The contaminated meat in Denmark was imported from other countries, including France, the Netherlands and Germany. 5)The findings were published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases. They show that this strain of the virus may be more-easily passed from meat to people.Last week, the United Nations held a high-level meeting of experts on antibiotic resistance. They talked about how resistance could become an international crisis if steps are not taken. 6)One of their main worries is the overuse and misuse of antibiotics. If the drugs are used too often they can become ineffective. More superbugs like MRSA will develop, the experts said. They called on governments and private companies to work together to stop the overuse and misuse of antibiotics. 7)Laura MacCleery was at the meeting. She works for the Washington, D.C.-based Consumers Union. She says animals that are raised on farms for food are often given antibiotics to prevent disease and help them grow faster. 8)MacCleery said the experts discussed measures to reduce resistance to antibiotics.She said, "Drug pricing and availability at a level of provider incentives -- those are the kinds of things that governments can do to discourage inappropriate prescribing among physicians, and to educate consumers about the potential risk of antibiotic resistance.” 9)MacCleery says her organization has persuaded restaurants like McDonald’s to agree not to sell chicken treated with antibiotics.

This Syrup Is 10x More Powerful Than Penicillin (Kills All Infections And ...)
This Syrup Is 10x More Powerful Than Penicillin (Kills All Infections And Bacteria From Your Organism). - - - Infections and bacteria can attack you in any season. In the winter season, the spread of flu is quite common. The immune system has been ready to fight the infection. However, whenever our immune system fails to fight the infection we take help from antibiotics. But nowadays many infections are caused due to drug-resistant viruses. In such cases antibiotics does not help to cure the health condition. Moreover, antibiotics have a long list of side effects and thus, it is better to avoid frequent intake of antibiotics. In order to improve the strength of the immune system, there exist natural remedies which are much more powerful than prescription drugs and antibiotics. Here is a recipe for a natural remedy which is times more powerful than antibiotics to treat respiratory infections, persistent cough, sore throat, asthma, chronic bronchitis as well as breathing problems. Homemade Powerful Penicillin: The recipe requires only 3 ingredients which are affordable to everyone and the process is so easy that you can prepare at home. Things you need: 1. Garlic cloves 3 to 4. 2. Water ½ cup. 3. Organic apple cider vinegar ¼ cup. 4. Organic honey ½ cup. Process: 1. Take 3-4 garlic cloves and crush them properly. 2. Add ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar along with ½ cup of honey to it. 3. Stir it properly and add ½ cup of water at the end. 4. Store the solution in a glass jar and leave it overnight to get a homogenous mixture. 5. Strain the mixture in the morning and store in the dark and cold place. 6. If you are suffering from infection then take 1 tbsp of this solution after every couple of hours until you get rid of the infection. 7. If you are not sick but want to boost your immune system then take 4-5 drops of the solution every day. 8. Use this remedy for a month time and your immune system will become stronger. You can add this solution to your daily routine to remain healthy. Health benefits of the ingredients: Garlic is termed as an important ingredient in alternative treatments to cure the respiratory problems. It has antiviral and antibacterial properties which help to boost the immune system. It also has the capability to fight the mutation changes in the viruses. Thus, it is very effective to fight mutated and new viruses. It consists of a compound called allicin which is provided to be 10 times more powerful than penicillin. With the combination of all the healthy properties, garlic is recognized as super food which helps us to remain healthy all the time. Apple Cider Vinegar helps to fight the viruses and bacteria due to the antibacterial and antiviral properties. It also stimulates the immune system to protect us from infection. It consists of beneficial bacteria, enzymes and trace minerals which are very important to promote overall well-being and health. Honey is proven to be the best ingredient to treat cough and sore throat. It has anti-inflammatory and soothing properties which help to provide relief from irritation caused by infection. The organic honey is a rich source of vitamins, enzyme, minerals and antioxidants which help us to remain healthy all the time. So, now onwards just avoid the overuse of antibiotics and switch to the natural method to boost your immune system.

#FOTD196 New Weapon to Fight Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria SNAPPs
New weapon to fight antibiotic resistant bacteria -  SNAPs Each year 700,000 people die due to infections by multi drug antibiotic resistant bacteria.  Things like MRSA and now gonorrhea By 2050 this could be 10 million   In the last 10 years only been a couple of new antibiotics Scientists have been looking for someone to kill bacteria that do not require antibiotic treatment. Meet the SNAP  developed by Shu Lam 25-year-old Ph.D. student at the University of Melbourne It can kill multiple super resistant bacterial strains by destroying their cell wall They are star shaped molecules SNAPPs stands for structurally nano-engineered peptide polymers In low numbers SNAPPs, they disrupt the cell wall enough so that the bacterial cell kills itself in a process called apoptosis In large numbers, they destroy everything so fast that apoptosis can’t actually take place. They have been shown to be effective against 6 different types of super resistant bacteria for multiple generations They looked at them over 600 generations and they were just as effective in the final as the initial. The bacteria developed no resistance to them at all THey also do not interfere with human cells at all. Trials are still early but this is a potential savior for the ever increasing problem of antibiotic resistance.

GMO's: The Moment of Truth
1. GMOs are unhealthy. The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) urges doctors to prescribe non-GMO diets for all patients. They cite animal studies showing organ damage, gastrointestinal and immune system disorders, accelerated aging, and infertility. Human studies show how genetically modified (GM) food can leave material behind inside us, possibly causing long-term problems. Genes inserted into GM soy, for example, can transfer into the DNA of bacteria living inside us, and that the toxic insecticide produced by GM corn was found in the blood of pregnant women and their unborn fetuses. Numerous health problems increased after GMOs were introduced in 1996. The percentage of Americans with three or more chronic illnesses jumped from 7% to 13% in just 9 years; food allergies skyrocketed, and disorders such as autism, reproductive disorders, digestive problems, and others are on the rise. 2. GMOs contaminate―forever. GMOs cross pollinate and their seeds can travel. It is impossible to fully clean up our contaminated gene pool. Self-propagating GMO pollution will outlast the effects of global warming and nuclear waste. The potential impact is huge, threatening the health of future generations. GMO contamination has also caused economic losses for organic and non-GMO farmers who often struggle to keep their crops pure. 3. GMOs increase herbicide use. Most GM crops are engineered to be "herbicide tolerant"―they deadly weed killer. Monsanto, for example, sells Roundup Ready crops, designed to survive applications of their Roundup herbicide. Between 1996 and 2008, US farmers sprayed an extra 383 million pounds of herbicide on GMOs. Overuse of Roundup results in "superweeds," resistant to the herbicide. This is causing farmers to use even more toxic herbicides every year. Not only does this create environmental harm, GM foods contain higher residues of toxic herbicides. Roundup, for example, is linked with sterility, hormone disruption, birth defects, and cancer. 4. Genetic engineering creates dangerous side effects. By mixing genes from totally unrelated species, genetic engineering unleashes a host of unpredictable side effects. Moreover, irrespective of the type of genes that are inserted, the very process of creating a GM plant can result in massive collateral damage that produces new toxins, allergens, carcinogens, and nutritional deficiencies. 5. Government oversight is dangerously lax. Most of the health and environmental risks of GMOs are ignored by governments' superficial regulations and safety assessments. The reason for this tragedy is largely political. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), for example, doesn't require a single safety study, does not mandate labeling of GMOs, and allows companies to put their GM foods onto the market without even notifying the agency. Secret agency memos made public by a lawsuit show that the overwhelming consensus even among the FDA's own scientists was that GMOs can create unpredictable, hard-to-detect side effects. They urged long-term safety studies. But the White House had instructed the FDA to promote biotechnology, and the agency official in charge of policy was Michael Taylor, Monsanto's former attorney, later their vice president. He's now the US Food Safety Czar. 6. The biotech industry uses "tobacco science" to claim product safety. Biotech companies like Monsanto told us that Agent Orange, PCBs, and DDT were safe. They are now using the same type of superficial, rigged research to try and convince us that GMO's are safe. Independent scientists, however, have caught the spin-masters red-handed, demonstrating without doubt how industry-funded research is designed to avoid finding problems, and how adverse findings are distorted or denied. 7. Independent research and reporting is attacked and suppressed. Scientists who discover problems with GMOs have been attacked, gagged, fired, threatened, and denied funding. The journal Nature acknowledged that a "large block of scientists . . . denigrate research by other legitimate scientists in a knee-jerk, partisan, emotional way that is not helpful in advancing knowledge." 8. GMOs harm the environment. GM crops and their associated herbicides can harm birds, insects, amphibians, marine ecosystems, and soil organisms. They reduce bio-diversity, pollute water resources, and are unsustainable. 9. GMOs do not increase yields, and work against feeding a hungry world. 10. By avoiding GMOs, you contribute to the coming tipping point of consumer rejection, forcing them out of our food supply.

Since the 1940s, these drugs have greatly reduced illness and death from infectious diseases." Antibiotic Resistance https://www.sciencedaily.com/terms/antibiotic_resistance.htm "Antibiotic resistance evolves naturally via natural selection through random mutation, but it could also be engineered by applying an evolutionary stress on a population. Once such a gene is generated, bacteria can then transfer the genetic information in a horizontal fashion (between individuals) by plasmid exchange." ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

How to live longer by eating smarter (Episode 41)
(http:www.mindyourbody.tv) Power to the (plant) people! If registered dietician and food and nutrition journalist Sharon Palmer could be granted a couple of wishes, one would be that we all "eat more whole plants." The other would be that we read her terrific new book, "The Plant-Powered Diet, The Lifelong Eating Plan for Achieving Optimal Health, Beginning Today." At 412 super-informative pages, Palmer's book reminds us, in accurate detail, of the dangers of eating too much meat. Meat consumption has doubled between 1909 and 2007. Red meat represents 58 percent of the meat we consume, she says. To begin to cut your appetite for it, consider the environmental issues that include "antibiotic resistance, caused by overuse of antibiotics in farm animals, to toxic manure lagoons that pollute local waters and spread foodborne pathogens." Then consider these. Top 11 reasons to cut back on (or cut out) meat: 1) It can hurt your heart: People who eat red meat are more likely to have high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels. 2) It ups your risk of Type 2 diabetes: Enough said. 3) It may pump up inflammation: That can promote a strong of chronic diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer's disease, Palmer writes. 4) It raises your risk of metabolic syndrome: The term refers to a collection of unhealthy factors that include a large waist circumference, high triglyceride levels, low HDL or "good cholesterol," high blood sugar and high blood pressure. 5) It may boost your toxin load: Cooking and processing some meats produces dangerous, carcinogenic compounds. Many toxins are also stored in the fat of animals. 6) It can promote antibiotic resistance: This is thanks to overuse of antibiotics in farm animals, as above. 7) It may escalate your risk of cancer (especially colorectal). 8) It can add pounds: Meats are higher in calories and fat than most whole plant foods. 9) It may cut your lifespan. 10) It magnifies your carbon foot print. Eat more of these: These are your friends: vegetables, cooked beans and peas, fruits, whole grains, nuts, seeds. Make more of them and bon appetit! http://www.MindYourBody.tv with Stephanie Stephens for more how-to video episodes, audio podcasts and blogs on female baby boomer health and lifestyle topics, created especially for you.

Natural Selection
Discover natural selection as a mechanism of evolution with the Amoeba Sisters. This video also uncovers the relationship of natural selection and antibiotic resistance in bacteria and emphasizes biological fitness. This video has a handout here: http://www.amoebasisters.com/handouts.html Note: This video is focused on natural selection. When we briefly mention evolution as 'change over time', this IS a bit too much of a simplification. We eventually hope to make a video specifically on evolution itself.

Wireless Electromagnetic Field Therapy, DeVita -Ap, DeVita-Ritm in English
Infectious control in the 21st century certainly is not going to be anything like that of the 20th century. The age of antibiotics is about over as great harm has been done to the world's populations with them. We have come close to compromising our biological existence with the reckless use of antibiotics. Now we have antibiotic-resistant strains of pathogens encroaching on our biospheres and it is getting increasingly dangerous to set foot anywhere near a hospital. Many people, including children, who die in the hospital after surgery die not from the surgery itself but from infections that get out of control. Infections cause 68 percent of children' deaths. Not with Deta -Elis devices in your pocket as there is no chance of creating anti-bionic resistant bugs or catching these from a hospital. Every organ of the body has its own special frequency. The Lung resonates at 72 cycles per second, also known as Hertz. If the lung becomes infected its frequency will fall out of balance usually dropping a few Hertz. It has been discovered that by producing the same frequency as a healthy lung with a frequency generator we can rebalance the lung and induce healing. This process is called Bioresonance and can be used on all parts of the body. Please contact: skapy: svitlanav1 e-mail: svetdetausa@yahoo.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/deta.world

Spore based probiotics
As we continue to learn how important healthy gut bacteria is for the brain and immune system, interest in cultivating a rich and diverse “gut microbiome” grows. One important tool in this quest are spore-based probiotic supplements. “Spore” is derived from the word “seed,” and spore-based probiotics are a hardy delivery system that germinate in the small intestine and help you colonize your gut with more healthy bacteria. Modern humans face many challenges to developing and maintaining healthy gut bacteria. In fact, studies of primitive people who live much like our hunter gatherer ancestors did show their guts have about 50 percent more diversity in gut bacteria than the average American. Its not just how much good bacteria you have, it’s how many different types. Researchers are finding this lack of microbiome diversity plays a role in many chronic health and brain disorders, including depression and autoimmunity. This is often one of the reasons I recommend periodically switching probiotic brands and strains. Diversity. Low-fiber, junk food diets, antibiotic overuse, chlorinated water, heavy environmental toxin and pollution loads, chronic stress, alcohol, and various medications all play a role in reducing the diversity and amount of beneficial gut bacteria. As a result, opportunistic and infectious “bad” gut bacteria are able to more easily conquer the gut. This weakens the gut lining, increases inflammation, and promotes brain and mood disorders. There are many ways we can build a healthy and diverse population of gut bacteria. The most important is to eat a whole foods diet that is predominantly vegetables and fruits. It’s important to vary the kind of produce you eat regularly. It’s also helpful to include cultured and fermented foods and take probiotics. Also, avoid drugs such as antibiotics, NSAIDs, and heartburn medication as much as possible, which can also contribute to the development of leaky gut, among other things. Given the challenges the modern gut faces, it’s not a bad idea to make probiotics a part of your routine. This is where spore-based probiotics come in. What makes spore-based probiotics special? ï The survive the acidic environment of the stomach on their way to the intestines. ï They resist breakdown by digestive enzymes. • They are heat stable and don’t need to be stored in the refrigerator. • Some spores are antibiotic-resistant, which means you can take while taking antibiotics. Once in the small intestine, spore-based probiotics can germinate, if you provide the right environment with plenty of plant fiber. Spore probiotics and healthy gut bacteria in general can help improve your health in several ways. They improve the health and integrity of the lining of the small intestine. This lining contains not only bacteria but also plenty of immune cells to defend the bloodstream from bad bacteria, yeast, toxins, undigested foods, and other pathogens that can trigger inflammation if they make their way through the gut lining into the bloodstream. This is called leaky gut. For the full blog article visit: http://premierifm.com/blog_files/spore-probiotics-and-gut-microbiome.html
