I dont know about the rest of the members on this site, but me personally, i feel like Hell is being released on earth. I believe Lucifer's crew is being ushered in through, tv, internet. Look how fast morals and standards are being wiped out of existance, as if they never occured. Keep in mind....we are 'spirit' beings in an earth suit...and anger, bitterness, fornication, adultery, homosexuality, whoremongering are all 'spirits'. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places. This is what we're up against: Rulers of darkness!

Keep in mind, the people running our 'show' called life....worship and serve Lucifer...and they have given their souls to him, like the believer has given their lives to Christ. The 'devil' wants earth to be as sad for man, as is in hell. All one has to do, is look around and see...evil running amuck!

The crazy thing is...people don't even know they're demon possessed...they think it's 'NORMAL'. God is love, and backbiting, lying, cheating and stealing; amongst other HARDLY 'normal'. I fear the day (not) when the 1/3 of the fallen angels arrive, in full. Not sure how many 1/3 is but i feel like it's almost there!

As it stands, seafood could be tainted with corexit, beef and chicken have their issues, fruits and veggies are exploding and being poisened, what next? Maybe there will be a 'zombie apocalypse', as there will be nothing left to eat, but each other!

Uh huh. When in doubt let's start babbling superstiscious nonsense. The last thing we need is for more quasi-religious hysteria in this world. Let the scientists handle this.

The number of cases in an outbreak of E. coli at a school near Bristol has risen to 16.
Dr David Hunt said: "The latest total of confirmed cases has risen considerably, but it was expected."

The agency said no clear source for the illness had been identified.

The HPA said it was also aware of diarrhoea and vomiting in children from neighbouring schools - St Barnabas Primary School, in Warmley, and Sir Bernard Lovell School in Oldland Common
Dr Hunt added: "We've known that a number of probable positive samples have been going through laboratory tests this week.

"The new cases relate to children who reported illness last week, so they do not indicate that the outbreak is spreading right now."
"We know that E coli O157 can spread more easily among the youngest schoolchildren."

So this E coli is spreading person to person right? How do we know that it hasn't picked up some genes that allow it to do that more efficiently?

Early evidence suggests the bacteria has genes from two distinct groups of E. coli: enteroaggregative E. coli (EAEC) and enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC).
Dr Paul Wigley, reader in foodborne diseases at Liverpool University said: "One nasty bacteria seems to have acquired a toxin from another nasty bacteria which has resulted in an even nastier bug.
"It seems it is producing two toxins which cause the damage and lead to bloody diarrhoea and damage to tissues including the kidneys

it seems that they can't find the source still and say it may never be found!
makes you wonder if this is not some kind of terrorist biological attack

Well, let's really hope it's not any kind of sabotage or bio-attack!

One of the most logical places where one nasty bacteria can meet another nasty bacteria and then swap genetics & mutate to produce the E. coli O104:H4 strain, would be in sewage sludge and recycled sewage water.

They should in my opinion take samples from every treatment plant and already produced bio-solid sludge in Germany and soil samples near every producers of vegetables in Europe in the vicinity of treatment plants or sludge deposits, to rule out if vegetables really could be the culprit and the carrier or not in this outbreak.

Preferably at the same time, also take samples from every meat producer & milk and dairy producers and processors in Northen Germany where most people were infected.

I'm alright thank you peeps

Here's the latest news:

- 21 cases of death

- source could be possibly germinations of vegetables which lead to market garden in a town called Uelzen

- results of testing are expected to be released today (06.06.2011)

Anything new?
I still haven't heard any confirmation on what the exact source of the outbreak is.
Have they found it yet?

A few years ago there was an e-coli outbreak in Sweden (not the deadly kind) and it was due to contaminated water that were used to water salad.
This e-coli is some scary # if it can contaminate both our water, our food and even spread from person to person.

What's the solution?
Live in a bunker and never meet other people?
Drill your own well and grow your own food in that bunker to avoid getting infected?

If this is not a manufactured strain that somehow got loose, but a natural mutation that occured, what says it can't mutate and get even worse in the future?
Maybe that zombie apocalypse isn't that far away after all...

Simple as it is: unpasteurized apple juice inhibits Shiga toxin produced by EHEC.

human waste as fertilizer and potential issues.

above link mentions e-coli in the report. with the eu using this method of 'enriching' the land, i am wondering about the added medications, bacteria, etc that can pass through the cleaning process. i did see a report on euronews approx 1 year ago regarding problems with some agricultural land in france using this method. with low water tables and lack of rain, i am also wondering if these are factors.
btw apologies if this has been mentioned in the thread. i missed a couple of pages

Situation Update No. 53 On 12.06.2011 at 17:56 GMT+2 Germany's health minister has warned more people will die from the E.coli outbreak in Europe which has claimed two more lives. But Daniel Bahr emphasised the worst of the outbreak is over. The bug, which officials have traced to German-grown bean sprouts, has now killed 35 people, with more than 3,000 being taken ill. All of the deaths - except one in Sweden - have been in Germany. Mr Bahr said: "I cannot give an all-clear. New infections are still to be expected but the number of new infections is clearly falling." He said it is unlikely the outbreak will flare up again. But he warned: "Further deaths are not ruled out, as painful as that is." On Friday, health officials said it was now safe to eat tomatoes, cucumbers and leafy salads - all food originally suspected as the source. They were speaking after beansprouts from an organic farm in the Lower Saxony area were found to have caused the outbreak. The farm has been shut down and is no longer sending produce to market. But authorities are urging consumers to avoid eating sprouts while further testing is under way. The German government had come under fire for failing to pin down the cause of the outbreak which prompted many in Europe to shun vegetables over the past month. Even Britons started avoiding or excessively washing fresh produce, despite experts saying there is no evidence food on sale in the UK had been affected. A survey for The Grocer found 38% of people across Britain were worried about falling ill from eating fruit and vegetables after the killer bug surfaced. Of these, 10% of people questioned said they were "very worried". Situation Update No. 52 On 12.06.2011 at 03:44 GMT+2 The worst of the E. coli outbreak may be over, says Germany's health minister. But despite confirming the source of the bacteria, the woes continue for many sick patients - and especially for European vegetable farmers.German Health Minister Daniel Bahr warned Saturday that the number of deaths from an E. coli outbreak may increase. His statement came even as German authorities lifted their warnings on fresh vegetables. Bahr cautioned that "further deaths are not ruled out, as painful as that is." He said, however, that he was hopeful the worst of the outbreak, which has claimed at least 31 lives in Germany and caused over 3,000 illnesses, was now over. "The wave is gradually abating," Bahr was quoted Saturday as telling the Bild am Sonntag newspaper. "There is reason to hope the worst is now over." German authorities announced Saturday that they located the source of the bacteria. The Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) confirmed test results announced on Friday that identified bean sprouts in the northern village of Bienenbüttel as carrying the virulent E. coli strain EHEC-0104. "These results are an important step in the chain of evidence," said BfR director Andreas Hensel. Officials investigating an organic farm in northern Germany said on Saturday they do not expect to take legal action against it for causing an E.coli outbreak. "Everything we have looked into until now shows the farm was flawless," said Gert Hahne, spokesman for the consumer protection office of Lower Saxony state, where Bienenbüttel is located. "It is hygienic and followed all the regulations."

Published: June 6, 2011

"BERLIN — A day after German agricultural officials identified locally grown sprouts as a possible cause of the E.coli outbreak that has killed 22 people and sickened more than 2,200, the officials said Monday that initial tests had failed to show conclusively that the bacteria originated with the sprouts."


So were back to beansprouts? --->June 12 2011.

Leave it too E.U too confuse and muddy the picture?? or are they just sloppy in there methods and missed it first time?

"legal action against it for causing an E.coli outbreak" with Plague DNA,, i don't think so. lol

More info updated yesterday

Situation Update No. 55 On 14.06.2011 at 03:43 GMT+2 The death toll in Germany's killer E.coli outbreak has risen to 36, one day after authorities said more fatalities could not be ruled out. Meanwhile, Taiwan has suspended the import of German bean sprouts. The number of people who have died in the outbreak of the virulent E. coli strain in Germany has risen to 36, health officials confirmed Monday. Germany's national disease agency, the Robert Koch Institute, said 3,228 people had fallen ill from the EHEC (enterohaemorrhagic E. coli) bacteria or from linked kidney problems (haemolytic uraemic syndrome or HUS). However, the RKI said there were signs the rate of infection was slowing. "For many days the number of new infections from EHEC or HUS has declined in the country," the agency said in a statement that confirmed the new number. The increase in the death toll comes one day after German Health Minister Daniel Bahr told the Bild am Sonntag newspaper that "more fatalities cannot be ruled out."
