Antibiotic resistance is now a worse problem than AIDS
May 01, 2014
Bacteria continue to mutate in order to defend themselves against being poisoned by antibiotic drugs. It was always inevitable that bacteria would win in the end when they evolved into “super bugs” that could not be killed by antibiotics.
It appears that we are now at the point where this is a bigger problem than AIDS.
In the largest study of its kind, the WHO looked at data from 114 countries on seven major types of bacteria. Experts are particularly concerned about bacteria responsible for pneumonia, urinary tract infections, skin infections, diarrhoea and gonorrhoea.
They are also worried that antiviral medicines are becoming increasingly less effective against flu.
Dr Danilo Lo Fo Wong, a senior adviser at the WHO, said: ‘A child falling off their bike and developing a fatal infection would be a freak occurrence in the UK, but that is where we are heading.’….
Earlier this month, Government body NICE said that one in 16 patients are developing infections on NHS wards because of poor hygiene among staff.
NICE said 800 patients a day, the equivalent of 300,000 a year, are infected by a member of staff or by dirty equipment. It is estimated the infections cause 5,000 deaths annually and contribute to another 15,000.
The bacteria are not the problem. God created bacteria and pronounced them “good” in the first chapter of Genesis. However, in the 1930’s the chemical companies decided to develop man-made drugs to combat bacteria. The drugs killed bacteria by poison. Before that time, they simply used things like colloidal silver. As the pioneers traveled across the country by wagon train, they would put a silver dollar in the water barrel to keep it fresh.
In more ancient times the kings drank from silver/gold cups. This method did not poison bacteria, but the particulates from the silver and gold suffocated the bacteria by blocking their breathing apparatus. The bacteria could never mutate to become resistant. They could not completely change their method of breathing. Hence, bacteria did not mutate into super bugs until antibiotics were invented.
I know a lady who got MRSA at a hospital last year. The doctors thought she was going to die. But she was able to smuggle a bottle of colloidal silver into the hospital. The next time they ran a test on her, they found that she no longer had the infection. They could not believe their own tests, so the nurses still came into her room wearing protective masks and gloves while they took more tests! But in the end, they had to release her from the hospital. The hospital staff remained baffled by this "miracle," but she kept quiet so as not to make them angry.
The drug companies do not advertise this, because colloidal silver is viewed as a competitor to their high-priced drugs. They often say "colloidal silver is not scientifically proven." Of course not. Which of the drug companies is going to spend a hundred million dollars on a study to prove the effectiveness of a substance that they cannot patent and which will only compete with the sales of their antibiotics? We have something better. It's called Common Sense.
