Antibiotic crisis bigger than Aids as common infections will kill, WHO warns
Telegraph ^ | April 30, 2014 | Rebecca Smith

Posted on 04/30/2014 9:13:59 PM PDT by Vince Ferrer

A child's scratched knee from falling off their bike, common bladder infections among the elderly in care homes and routine surgery to replace broken hips could all become fatal as antibiotics are becoming increasingly useless, the World Health Organisation has said.

(Excerpt) Read more at telegraph.co.uk ...


TOPICS: News/Current Events
KEYWORDS:
This is an issue which is a real danger. But not only does it mean we may be getting incurable infections from scratches and childhood injuries, it has a political component too. It is the apocolypse for progressivism. The sexual revolution rode a wave of antibiotic progress in sexually transmitted diseases. While activists and now historians throw around words like "patriarchy," "sexism", or "homophobia," they fail to explain that the traditional world existed the way it did for perfectly rational reasons. Some of those reasons were to avoid diseases. Now society has been rewritten because of these drugs, but they are losing effectiveness. This will cause us to reconsider our traditional morality if nature continues to win.

What an annoyance. And this time, its effects wont just be limited to drug users, sexual deviants, and unlucky blood transfusion recipients, etc.

Yawn...

Anyone alarmed by the failure of antibiotics simply isn’t educated on phages.

I remember this was first talked about in thr early 1970’s where if the overuse/misuse of antibiotics were not stopped, we could end up in such a crisis they are talking about now. We might have to return to using sulfa-drugs and other earlier means to control (or try to) infections. Back in 2003, my hand was infected with a bad case of strep as a result of a cut an they used a lot of superantibiotics on me, along with surgery, but I came close to losing my left hand or part of it.

I have told people for 20 years that anti-biotics should be controlled substances, like opiates, but stricter, with fines for non-completion of course, and prison sentences for improper disposal.

Most bacterial infections can be killed by eating well and cleaning everything within reach with soap and water. Wiping the counters with vinegar, putting the vegetables in water with some hydrogen peroxide before they are served, clean the door handles, light switches, faucet handles, steering wheel, car door handles, wipe the shopping cart handle before your grab it, clean everything within reach so you don't keep reinfecting yourself. Wash your hands, hair and pillow case every day if there is a resistant bacteria in your house.

My veterinarian was the one who convinced me to add hydrogen peroxide to the cattle water troughs. It cured a serious cough for about 40 head that would have cost me hundreds of dollars in drugs and time.

I’ve never abused antibiotics. Last year I acquired a rare staph infection after hip replacement and was put on a pic line of 5 infusions a day for six weeks. That chit killed everything, good and bad. I lost 25 lbs. With probiotics and healthy eating I got my strength back. Thank God! Antibiotics still work, for me.

Phage therapy was, and still is a mostly Russian method of treatment.
The few times it has been tested in the US or Canada it has not been shown to be particularly useful.
That is not to say that it should be ignored as completely non-effective. My suggestion would be that some pharmaceutical company should pick up where the Russians and the French left off and test these thing either to success or destruction. Either big pharma or a small biotech industry stands to make a lot of money if phage therapy is successful. One thing we all need to remember is that there is a bacteria-phage for just about every known bacteria on earth.

Lysteria is the biggest phage used in the U.S. (to combat food poisoning). For every bacteria, there is an anti-bacteria (a phage).

Those with compromised immune systems because of AIDs had to use antibiotics to stay alive. The antibiotics became a substitute for a normal immune system. This set the stage for the bacteria to develop immunities against the drugs used to control them. The immune compromised people had no immune system to destroy the harmful bacteria. They became living petri dishes to cultivate bacteria that evolve into drug resistant bacteria. Then they become carriers of that drug resistant bacteria as they die from its effects.

I think I heard that before antibiotics they used heavy metal compounds with silver, arsenic, gold to treat disease.

This is a real threat unlike the hyperbole that was the swine flu, from 1980 to 1984 16 new antibiotic drugs were made, from 2005-2007 only 2 new were made.

‘- - -hydrogen peroxide to the cattle water troughs.’

We’re talkin’ food grade hydrogen peroxide, yes?
For people, anyway.
Sometimes use it for a mouth wash. Diluted.

Thought it was blue - - -

Depends. Never saw my spouse purple/blue and it’s been in our ‘medicine chest’ - the kitchen - for years.
We order from Tri-Medica, think it is. (I’m not home to check - )
Now I’m not sure - - -

The sexual revolution was predicated on the ability to cure STDs. Few people wanted to sleep around if it risked an incurable, horrible infection.
Antibiotic immune STDs put a kibosh on the sexual liberty liberals enjoy. Condoms aren’t sufficient protection against such a risk, when lesions and skin rashes can spread far past that.
And we know condoms don’t work well enough today, because one in four adults supposedly has an STD.
So you’re back to old fashioned modesty and chastity for the sake of your health and sanity.

Not applicable for internal infections (unless the suspended silver applied surgically), although plenty of quacks will tell you otherwise.

You'd think. Instead, now birth-control and morning-after pills are handed out even to youn teens as if they were candy. That will make "safe sex" even less important to them.

What good does cleaning the sink do when you're already infected? I think you're misusing the word infected. And by 'eating well' you mean dining at a steak house, I suppose, because you're in the cattle business? Again, how would that fight the infection?

“I’ve never abused antibiotics.”

-
That doesn’t matter-—it’s overuse by other people that has caused these bacteria to adapt and change.

Some antibiotics will still work,but it depends on the infection

I am not speaking about viruses. yes, most bacterial infections such as an infected scrape or cut can be healed by thoroughly washing the area and keeping it clean. This may include a piece of gauze. The largest cause of delayed healing is because we continually reinfect the area with other germs.

Your diet has everything to do with how your autoimmune system is going to work. Try eating fast/junk food diets and expecting it to heal minor scrapes is just wishful thinking. You need a steady supply of vitamins and minerals to maintain a strong immune system.

Note that the misery of STDs isn’t shown in movies or on television. Just the fun, fun, fun of promiscuous sex.
