Urinary tract infections linked to contaminated chicken

Urinary tract infections are common conditions that occur when bacteria from the intestines enter the urinary tract. New research, however, suggests that the bacteria causing these infections may come from contaminated food -- especially chickens.

While it sounds bizarre, studies from Canadian researchers show that stricter chicken-farm ani-contamination practices may help curb cases of urinary tract infections. In 2010, researchers showed that the most common cause of the infections -- E. coli bacteria -- can originate in food. In a study published Wednesday, the authors show that chicken is the likely culprit.

The scientists, led by Amee R. Manges of McGill University, tested 320 samples of beef, pork and chicken. They found that the bacteria from beef and pork were far less likely to be genetically related to human urinary tract infection bacteria strains than chicken, which were closely related.

Proper kitchen handling and cooking of chicken can reduce the chances of E. coli infection. But, Manges said: "the many examples of foodborne outbreaks that occur regularly makes it clear that we still have problems with food safety."





Never saw this one coming!


What isn't clear is what exactly do you need to do with this chicken that causes the problem down there?


(Yes, I know... The replies to this thread are going to be out of control...My fault.
)

But still, a very interesting medical connection, if true...

I guess ya really do learn something new every day!

What do you want to bet that the funding for this research came at least in part by the beef industry.

With beef prices nearly off the charts, more and more people are turning to chicken as their meat choice..... Now read between the lines.

Possibly... I may look further into that...

I suppose the poultry industry could retaliate with a similar study that beef consumption causes podobromhidrosis.

Perhaps you have to remember to wipe the parsons nose front to back before you eat it?

Yeah but i bet ya the chicken did.

Well i think we know and its got nothing to do with eating.



(Yes, I know... The replies to this thread are going to be out of control...My fault.

Damn right it is.
I cant wait to read on.



But still, a very interesting medical connection, if true...

Agreed, but as another poster stated, I bet the beef industry paid for this research to be done.



I guess ya really do learn something new every day!

Yeah and thats dont stick ya thing in a chicken

And if anyone is thinking about doing it please where protection.

Sorry OP if this is a little off topic.....But if you enjoy poultry it's worth knowing.....

Since the beginning of the phase-in of corn use in gas in 2005, the the poultry industry has struggled somewhat .

This ofcourse is because corn prices increased when its use in gasoline (Ethanol) was implemented.

*The increase in corn prices made the cost of feeding the birds jump.
*Then also add the fuel price increases along with the feeding cost = there is the big picture....

The larger more efficient companies have been able to continue to operate. Others that were more careless and wasteful did not do so well.

Hopefully the increasing beef prices will save the poultry industry as more people make the switch. People haven't stopped buying chicken, Its just not as profitable as it once was.

Thnx for the thread

The chicken in the OP photo should change its lifestyle if it wants to keep its own urinary tract clean.

I don't know how much the chicken has been drinking, but there appears to be a beer can stuck in its cloaca. (oh yeah, the chicken is naked... and the head and feet seem to be missing)

That can't be good.

Closer to on topic: Wash thine hands after preparing the unclean chicken and before taking a wee wee.

it appears that people are less careful with the cheaper priced chicken than the higher priced beef & pork cuts of meat


i don't think you were trying to make a point that chickens are inherently infectous to humans


perhaps it is the prevelance of chicken in all sorts of popular forms that makes chicken wings and nuggetts a source for the high level of uninary infections in the population...

i rarely consume red meat. and i only buy chicken breasts when priced at .99 ¢...i then remove the skin and all that yellow gell stuff from being fed steroids & growth hormones...the bird parts are then ready to be sear-fried then stewed for several hours in a Salsa


the preparers evidently do not have a very good cleanliness regimen,

A. because of the birds lowly status and cheaper than animal meats or
B. because there are thousands more venues that serve chicken in one form or another versus the less prolific Steak or BBQ barns...

either factor could be the cause for the pandemic





thanks

 
BTW.in that photo, the bird is stuffed with a ? "Coors" beer can i guess...
i guess everyone has their druthers... Lately i switched my cooking beer from imported brands to a product named STEEL Reserve Lager.... mmmm good & is less expensive for using instead of water

Yeah, its really common sense stuff, Clean hands and work areas often....keep raw foods away from each other.

Hope I never experience the can probe

I had bladder/kidney infections growing up, but no problems for 40 years until this week. I noticed that I was urinating more than usual and had pain around my bladder. I was asked if I had eaten any chicken. A couple of days before, yes, I had eaten chicken! I have to buy the 5 packs of meat for $20. Can't afford that expensive chicken. So now I'm on antibiotics. It's just too much of a coincidence that I had eaten chicken a couple of days before the nausea hit, then the frequency in urinating. I always thought if meat was cooked properly these bacteria would die ... guess I was wrong! I will start taking cranberry vitamins now. Be careful when purchasing any kind of meat.

The herb Uva Ursi works great in clearing this up. A whole bottle only costs $10 and would save tons of money from going to the doctor by paying co-pay and price of medicine. I was out of town and couldn't see a doc so I tried this and I have never had one since. And this was back in 2000.

To me, it's another case of researchers evaluating results according to the limits of their belief system. Observation 1: E.coli in the urinary tract. Observation 2: E.coli in the chicken. Observation 3: Both E.coli are closely related (no doubt on their mother's side). Conclusion: Urinary tract E.coli came from chicken.

Never any consideration that the naturally occurring E.coli was in the body all along and that its presence at the "infection" site was in response to the illness instead of being its cause.

Never any consideration that it's not the germs in the chicken but the chicken itself that is the real culprit. Whether it's prime quality, organically raised and butchered chicken or the battery-raised, chemically-grown, hormone-laced variety, it is a food source that the body is poorly adapted to metabolise. The acid end-products of meat digestion in general are acids and most notably uric acid. A high-protein diet as is common on the standard American diet (SAD) results in overwork of the liver and kidneys and general irritation and inflammation around the body. Combined with the other dietary and non-dietary abuses that we inflict on our bodies, urinary tract "infections" are always just around the corner.

When any part of the body becomes inflamed due to chronic irritation, cells start dying in the area due to the reduced circulation and the subsequent buildup of toxic waste. As bacteria are part of the cleanup crew, any testing of this area will reveal bacteria at work consuming dead cells and excreting their toxic byproducts. Researchers arriving at the scene see the bacteria hard at work and presume that they caused the problem.

But now you know the rest of the story...

Thank you for the tip. I always wash my hands and clean up after preparing chicken. I never expected this. I haven't slept a full night's sleep in several days. I'm ready! If I'm not mistaken, isn't dandelion root also good for urinary tract problems? I don't want to go through this again!
