Skip to comments.CDC: 'Nightmare bacteria' spreading
Posted on 03/06/2013 5:55:51 PM PST by oxcart
Hospitals need to take action against the spread of a deadly, antibiotic-resistant strain of bacteria, says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The bacteria kill up to half of patients who are infected.
The bacteria, called carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae or CRE, have increased over the past decade and grown resistant to even the most powerful antibiotics, according to the CDC. In the first half of 2012, 200 health care facilities treated patients infected with CRE.
"CRE are nightmare bacteria," CDC director Dr. Tom Frieden said in a statement. "Our strongest antibiotics don't work and patients are left with potentially untreatable infections. Doctors, hospital leaders and public health must work together now to implement CDC's 'detect and protect' strategy and stop these infections from spreading."

Good thing I don’t have nightmares.
It's the only way to deal with a problem like this.
Let me be the first to say:
Sounds as if we’re about to refamiliarize ourselves with the value of silver and gold above and beyond coins and shiney baubles.
CDC is too busy redesigning their HQ with saunas, contemplation and nap rooms.
They have the “gun” agenda on their plate!
well this will be a convenient excuse to do away with undesirables - who the govt says are undesirables, that is.
The CDC is about one of the only agencies I will defend. They have stayed neutral about guns (in fact, have produced some of the data we pro-gunners use during arguments!) and is one of the only groups I have ever seen that actually CARES about their charter. I contract for them and I routinely see PhD’s and Masters-level people staying late into the wee hours actually working on the science of health.
I want the world to end...but not that way...
“Well, I suggest that Obama seize dictatorial powers immediately, and grab all of our guns.”
“It’s the only way to deal with a problem like this.”
Well, you’re simply being silly, there is a very easily workable solution to the problem. All we need do is print about fifty billion signs and post them in every home, workplace, doctor’s office, hospital etc. BACTERIA FREE ZONE. Hey, you know what? We can add VIRUS FREE ZONE to all those signs at no extra cost, a real twofer.
We need QUARANTINE!! NOW!!! NOW!!. These bodies must be burned and the areas they have occupied BLOW TORCHED!!
From what I could glean from the MSM news readers and from pseudo-experts and other MSM news readers called in for their opinions, if everyone would wash their hands the epidemic would go away immediately. I’m sure that the Black Plague was ended by everyone washing their hands in the Dark Ages.
I had a bronchial infection which basically kept me sick all Winter. The first two anti-biotics had very little effect on it.
I was never hospitalized but was getting pretty sick. Finally my doctor tried another one and it worked. Actually I have been over it for a couple of weeks but have just noticed my chest seems congested again. Sure hope it is not recurring.
I have an even better idea...
OBAMA FREE ZONE
I don’t doubt that Laz, but Obama just assigned them with a gun violence study that will consume their budget. My point was the Zero is turning them into a political arm like NASA with Muslim outreach, The State Dept. always known as “Foggy Bottom”. And let’s be honest, Julie Gerberding (?) got them some pretty nice HQ’s. I am pissed off regarding Lyme’s, Babesiosis, borrelia diseases that they choose to ignore. I truly believe that especially after the East Anglia University/hockey stick Global Warming b/s, Andrew Wakefield etc.
that most science is bought and paid for.
The whole thing makes me ill. I do not doubt for a moment that there are fabulously talented , hardworking people there, the top folks change with each Administration and they always come with a ton of Political/Pharmaceutical connections.
Michael Taylor from Monsanto at the FDA? Yikes!
I have problems with my knees due to an old car accident. I deal with it. Sometimes, yes, aspirin, heating pad, laying around..
Once, my closet hypochondriac husband and I had the flu at the same time, on his insistence, we went to the doctor together. He took his meds all of them. I did partake of the Z pak, but all those other little bottles of stuff, I threw them out.
Why? Perhaps I'm wrong, but I think people take way too many meds. The body can usually take care of itself in regards to non life threatening illness.
I want my body to be strong enough to fight all these drug resistant disease. Perhaps I'm going about it the wrong way? I don't know.
Republicans back in the 90's prohibited any Federal grant to the CDC from being used for research into gun control because they'd gotten so politicized.
If you go to the full article, you’ll see that they’re tiptoeing around saying “quarantine” without using that particular word.
There are all manner of natural antimicrobials, it might be time to become familiar. A kitchen spice rack is full of them if you know how to use them for that purpose. Salt, sugar, pepper, oregano, turmeric, bay leaf, on and on. Essential oil of oregano is a powerful one. Anything used to cure meats or pickle vegetables will kill bacteria, that’s why they work as preservatives with food.
Silver (topical and environmental, not internal), gold and copper can be very effective.
The biggest one, topical or internal, is the most obvious one.
I hear that. You are knowledgeable . We are talking about 100 million dead.I sat my husband down and told him and he just glazed over!! This is panic time!!
The only one I disagree with is sugar...pure poison, unless as in organic fruit, as fructose.
You’re immune system is like a muscle, use it or lose it....People are so concerned about germs they try to protect themselves from them at all times, which never allows their immune systems to develop to their full potential.
Kids are supposed to play in dirt.
Around 1983 I was a young healthy guy working in Western, Kansas. I came down with a really bad sinus infection.
The Dr. gave me erythromycin and in a few days I was just getting worse. I actually began to wonder if I might not get well. The Dr. told me to keep taking the first antibiotic and gave me a pile of Keflex samples. Within a few days I finally began to get better. We had a group meeting in Wichita and I decided to attend. After only one day I had a relapse and went to the emergency room at St Francis in Wichita.
The lady Dr. told my that I didn’t have a bacterial infection but she took a throat swab and came back about 10 minutes later and said I did have one. She then prescribed penicllin. I still remember the prescription said Pen tab VK. Well that was the magic bullet. Within 2 days I was totally well.
Thanks for the info on the CDC stats Laz. I track unfudged economic numbers out of the St Louis Fed for the same reason. I was just about to begin adding demographic data and I wondered about the CDC numbers.
What hasn’t been brought out yet is the connection between the AIDs, homosexual and illegal immigrant populations in spreading disease. Being intolerant out of spite is not my purpose, but the stats paint a compelling picture of what is going on.
I’ve had two close brushes with MRSA, a business partner’s son got it, he was on his high school’s wrestling team. An hourly employee where I work got it and was still coming in a week after diagnosis, could’ve been bad but there was no outbreak. Hospitals make me nervous these days, I use the heck out of the ubiquitous alcohol-based hand sanitizers whenever I’m unable to avoid going inside one.
It’s just a matter of time, the bacteria are winning and we’re almost out of ammunition with which to fight them.
order a pizza and put a TON of oregano on it
Please let me know if it helps
take some Niacin, drink huge quantities of OJ, take fish oil, magnesium, and cinnamon and most of all TUMERIC
You’re limiting your thinking to dietary intake. Sugar is an effective preservative, hams are cured with it. Think topical. Honey, too.
Hams are cured with nitrates and nitrites as is most pork, cold cuts are sprayed with silicon supposedly to prevent lysteria. (More likely a payoff to some silicone producer). Honey is iffy for me personally, the bee colony collapse happened for a reason and it was likely “man made”.
ooops...thanks for posting..
Does sound rather nasty..
You’re talking about modern industrial food production. Cure a ham yourself. Salt, sugar or smoke.
You're right ClearCase - AND he needs to raise taxes and buy more drones for Homeland Horror... Someone HAS to do something!!! Maybe hire a few more trolls to stop citizens from communicating... Something. Anything. We've got to ACT!
And they vote.
lol! My neighbors don’t even like my big dog! I doubt they would welcome “Babe”! You funny though!
I have friends and a husband, that will go to the doctor for every sniffle. They think it is the healthy thing to do modern medicine and all that.
I just see it as weakening the immune system. Yes, I do take prescriptions if I absolutely must. But I'd rather be strong enough to do without.
We may all have to be...someday.
They aren't 'winning', they are only doing their job.
If I have the “creeping crud” and it just won't leave, I get help. I just don't depend on meds for every ache, pain and sniffle.
They’re winning out over mankind’s efforts to eradicate them.
Papa Obama told me bad things like this would happen if that sequester thingy went through. He’s right, just like I knew he’d be.
Are you all ashamed of yourselves for doubting him?
Well 10k iu units of Vitamin D for those in cold and dark climates can’t hurt either!
“Don’t Dead Open Inside”???
“Hell The What??”
When folks lived on the farm and raised their own meat, hams were cured with sugar, salt, no nitrates nor silicone. RegulatorCountry is talking about homegrown natural stuff - not store bought toxic meats.
AND... they are supposed to 'get sick'. This is how they develop a stronger immune system. There are a laundry list of 'childhood diseases' that every child is expected to catch at least once.
We (unwisely) use medicine to stop a 'runny nose', when the only thing we should be doing is blowing our nose. It's running for a reason, and stopping it with antihistamines leaves the nasal passages susceptible to damage.
I brought it up more or less just to illustrate the antibacterial properties of sugar. It didn’t enter my mind that everybody didn’t grow up with grandparents who had a smokehouse on their farm and cured their own meats. Maybe it wasn’t the greatest example for that reason, but you certainly can prevent meat from spoiling and decaying for years with either salt or sugar. They are preservative because they’re antibacterial.
Actually, vitamins will do more to protect you from disease than washing your hands.
