A “nightmare” of fast-growing killer superbugs were classified as urgent public-health threats in the USA on 9-15-13 by the U.S. CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL & PREVENTION (CDC). At least 2 million people in the US develop serious bacterial infections that are antibiotic-resistant and kill more than 23,000 people. “For organism after organism, we’re seeing this steady increase in resistance rates,” says Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the CDC. There has been a 30-fold increase in superbug deaths in the last decade!
The CDC said the overprescribing of antibiotics is a chief cause of superbugs that wipe out 90% of bodily cells, allowing pathogens to mutate into deadly threats like carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, or CRE. Up to half the prescriptions written for antibiotics are unnecessary, the CDC report says. And all these unneeded antibiotics are making the superbug problem worse. “We are trying to sound the alarm on these bugs that we call urgent…these are particularly frightening,” says Dr. Steve Solomon, director of CDC’s Office of Antimicrobial Resistance.
Sarah Boseley, England’s chief medical officer warned that superbugs or antibiotic-resistant bacteria are causing untreatable infections posing “a catastrophic threat” to the population, calling for urgent action worldwide.
C. difficile, the most common hospital-based infection in the US is an urgent threat both because resists antibiotics and it preys on the overuse of antibiotics. According to the CDC report, C. difficile causes 250,000 infections and kills 14,000 people in the US each year and deaths from C. difficile rose 400 percent from 2000 to 2007. In USA Today 3-5-13, health officials warn that it may soon be too late to stop superbugs. “Antimicrobial resistance poses a catastrophic threat…an apocalyptic scenario….the rise in drug-resistant diseases could trigger a national emergency comparable to a catastrophic terrorist attack” said Dame Sally Davies, Britain’s most senior medical advisor. And, many experts say the statistics do not reflect the true level of the current superbug crisis and the EUROPEAN MEDICINES AGENCY warned in 3-15-13 THE TIMES (London): “Doctors fear that cases of superbugs Clostridium are being underreported to avoid NHS financial penalties on hospitals that miss targets.”
The global overuse and misuse of antibiotics wipes out your inner ecosystem (microbiome) and mainstream medical experts warn that a superbug doomsday scenario is already upon us. Superbugs outsmart drugs and are always one step ahead of doctors as they mutate and grow resistance to all drugs. In NATURE 2011, Dr. Blaser of NEW YORK UNIVERSITY says the impact of antibiotics at any one time in life is permanent.
The world’s leading scientific journals (NATURE, SCIENCE, & SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN) are telling us that antibiotics wipe out the body’s inner ecosystem biodiversity and sustainability, our primary immune defense against invading superbugs. By nourishing and restoring the microbiome, a consortium of microbial cells that outnumber human cells 10 to 1 with 5 million genes compared to only 20,000 human genes, experts say we can achieve “a superorganism potential” (BRITISH MEDICAL JOURNAL 2008:8; MEDICAL HYPOTHESIS 2010:4, NATURE 2010; SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN 2012-JUNE) against invading superbugs.
Alan Johnson, a scientist at the HEALTH PROTECTION AGENCY says, “We don’t have new antibiotics that we can rely on in the immediate future or in the longer term.” Since health experts now agree that antibiotics fueled these runaway superbug infections, doesn’t it make sense to find ways to nourish your immune system and microbiome defenses against superbugs?
In the 70’s and 80’s, Dr. Yanick’s university-hospital based research on the “Yanick Synchrozyme Polarization Technique (SPT)” established a vital link between genotoxic “polarity” effects on the microbiome, neuron and intracellular nutrients (Journal of Applied Nutrition 1988:40; Townsend Letter for Doctors 1983, 2009 & 2010; J American Audiology Society 1976:15; Int J Holist Health Medicine 1983:1; J Medical Audiology 1983:5; Int Academy Preventive Medicine 1983:45). Thereafter, following two decades of empirical research, he developed the ultimate inner ecosystem nourishment with the exact strains, ratios and potencies of SPT-energized probiotics (Quantabiotica™) to help restore the rich genetic diversity and intelligence of a thriving and robust microbiome (Townsend Letter for Doctors 2005, 2009, 2010 & 2011) and Microstat™, which was used clinically by hundreds of doctors for decades. Now with the advent of new superbug threats Microstat™ has been re-formulated and improved and is now called ImmuNutraFood™. Good cell nourishment is considered to be the foundation of health. It is the gateway for the immune-microbiome cellular cross talk that allows the body to defend itself adequately against all superbugs.
At the very first indication of a cold or flu from a superbug, ASK YOUR DOCTOR to consider nourishing & supporting you with the following (have all on hand for immediate dosing):
