Tissues from cockroach and locust brains and nervous systems killed off 90% of E. coli and MRSA bacteria without harming the human cells they were attacking, according to researchers from the University of Nottingham.
The research gives credence to the idea that scientists will be able to discover new treatments in the natural world for these increasingly antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
We might, therefore, ask ourselves if other types of motor neuron diseases can be transmitted through surgery and be latent for decades, such as those where risk factors, particularly physical professions and activities or certain sporting activities, for example, which are more likely to lead to surgery, have already been indicated.
"Suggesting that a disease could have been acquired during health care is a very delicate affirmation, as some relatives of patients with sporadic CJD may be tempted to seek compensation from health authorities for the alleged intraoperational transmission years previously, which would be impossible to prove in individual cases," he reasons.
The U. S. Department of Agriculture has increased the amount of insect parts and rodent hairs allowed in food from the previous 30 parts or one hair per gram or 100 parts or three hairs per gram, but the increases are allowed only every seventh and eighth year.
Allowable insect parts include heads, antennae, legs, eggs, and maggots. Rodent hairs may come from any rodent, including rats, mice, and squirrels. In the industry, such matter is referred to, euphemistically, as “animal byproducts,” despite the fact that, scientifically, insects are not animals. “It sounds better,” Mike Johannes, Secretary of Agriculture suggested at a recent press conference concerning the increase in allowances.
The allowance of vermin in American foodstuff reflects the “impracticality,” Johannes said, of “growing, harvesting, and processing bug-free raw products.”
“Americans are just going to have to accept a cockroach in their bread, a worm in their apple, or a maggot in their gravy mix once in a while,” the secretary added

GREAT post ladyinwaiting! ...and thanks everyone for your input.
But no one answered the big question:
How will Big Pharma corner the market on cockroaches?
...This is a conspiracy in the making, trust me.
