Hi all

sry if this has been posted I didnt see it..

Well it might just be a matter of time before antibiotics wontt work anymore. Then what? We might just get that zombie appocalypse yet..
hasnt been alot of doom porn lately. At least its not guns
www.guardian.co.uk...


Britain's most senior medical adviser has warned MPs that the rise in drug-resistant diseases could trigger a national emergency comparable to a catastrophic terrorist attack, pandemic flu or major coastal flooding.

Dame Sally Davies, the chief medical officer, said the threat from infections that are resistant to frontline antibiotics was so serious that the issue should be added to the government's national risk register of civil emergencies.

She described what she called an "apocalyptic scenario" where people going for simple operations in 20 years' time die of routine infections "because we have run out of antibiotics".


I thought this part was interesting

The supply of new antibiotics has dried up for several reasons, but a major one is that drugs companies see greater profits in medicines that treat chronic conditions, such as heart disease, which patients must take for years or even decades. "There is a broken market model for making new antibiotics," Davies told the MPs

This is a problem partly due to the fact of over usage of antibiotics used on animals that we eat.....

Here is a thread that provides links on this topic.
Put Farm Animals on an Antibiotics FREE Diet....

I understand the use of antibiotics on sick animals but not the healthy ones and that is what is happening.

And over time, our bodies are slowly becoming immune from disease fighting antibiotics from eating this meat.

Spooky really.....

I have seen oil of oregano kill off a staph infection when no amount of antibiotics would work. I have seen it kill chronic skin cellulitis in people with diabetes. I myself killed strep throat with it. I keep a stock on hand of the oregano oil, always. It's our go to, whenever we get sick. The other day my husband started coming down with cold symptoms. Two drops in water and it knocked that right out.

That's true. Also, back in the 90's, doctors were over prescribing broad spectrum antibiotics for every thing. My oldest daughter's immune system was ruined this way and now as an adult she has a hard time fighting things off. I take full responsibility for this. In my ignorance, I thought the doctor knew best back then.

I had a drug & anti-biotic resistant type of MRSA and I was convinced I was the victim of some new kind of bio-weapon. I threw everything, including the kitchen sink, at it, nothing worked, only pissed it off more.

I suffered severely for 2 1/2 years with it. I caught it from a mentally challenged client I worked with who was taking anti-biotics & a handful of psychotropics daily, so his strain he gave me was already resistant to anything out there.

I finally destroyed the MRSA type virus with Colloidal Silver. 1-2 glasses per day for 2-3 weeks.... gone!

I am still pissed that not 1 doctor suggested I try that, I had to find out about it doing my own research.

Sorry to hear about your daughter. But at the same time, it isn't your fault. We are supposed to trust the doctors and up until now, we had no reason to distrust them.
Now it's all about money and getting kickbacks from the pharmaceutical companies. Some but not all doctors, that is.....there are still some that try to do good for their patients.

That's another touchy subject for me, the drug companies.....ugh.

Boosting the immune system of every animal makes them grow faster (no need to fight infections) and permits living conditions to be worst and especially more animals in less space. The goal is to potentiate profitability...

It's not only the antibiotics in the meat that were eating, but in the soaps, and other cleaning agents we use in our everyday lives. Not to mention the antibiotic medication that are overly prescribed by doctors on a daily basis. We've declared war on everyday bacteria and have ended up handicapping our own immune system because of it.

I understand that as per my thread I did on it earlier.....

However, at what cost?
Are the consequences worth it?
Which is more important....faster growing animals or peoples immune system being resistant to antibiotics?


Even World Health Organization director general Margaret Chan warned earlier this year that the "post-antibiotic era" is getting closer every day and would represent "an end to modern medicine as we know it" in which "things as common as strep throat or a child's scratched knee could once again kill."


I know which is more important to me......people's health.

You are correct....

That's why I stated "part of the reason".
Our society has gone into overkill on germs/bacteria. Some germs are good for a person, that way the body can maintain the ability to produce germ fighting antibodies.
And yes, doctors are to blame also.....the pill pushing physicians.

I'll never forget the day I went to a junk yard to pick up a part for my car. There was a worker there eating a sandwich in the office with black greasy hands. I chuckled to myself remembering how my mother would always tell me to wash my hands before eating.

You have to wonder how many times this guy ate his lunch with dirty hands caked with bacteria. He probably never got sick because he did it on a daily basis. I just had to relate that story on how some people live with bacteria everyday and think nothing of it.

Mobile/cell phones carry the same bacteria as poop.

Thats why you never use someone elses or a public phone booth.

Antibiotics were not widely used until the 1940's. Before that, many people died from bacterial infections. My point would be that the 'germ apocalypse' did not occur before antibiotics were available. Many hospital employees have colonies of MRSA living in their nasal passages. They are not dying in droves.

I don't want to downplay the problem, I just don't see an 'apocalyptic' problem.

Antibiotic overuse has caused the emergence of antibiotic resistant bacteria, but before antibiotics were discovered, common staph infections killed people.

How you suppose to take it? One teaspoon a day?

Man that has probably got to taste gross. Hmm never thought of drinking Oregano Oil.

Thanks for the tip.

Scare tactics. There are still huge swaths of the human population that are immune to nearly everything. Real talk

I'm not doing better... I'm CURED. Yeah, I used that word. I'm not afraid of saying it.

I threw everything at what I had. Every powder, plant, plant combo, vitamin, minerals, electrical BS solution.... nothing worked on my drug & anti-bacterial resistant bacterial virus. It was on my face too, the worst kind.

Colloidal silver, home made, destroyed this 2 1/2 year infection. What do you want me to say besides cure? People are going to play with plants & powders no matter what I say. go for it. I've been there, I know what worked, and what works on sooo many things.

Try it.... if Youtube is too "out there" to learn how to make it home made, your loss for laziness.

The body always evolves to suit its environment.

The "help" antibiotics provide means the immune system doesn't have to work so hard, so it evolves to suit. Because of this, the use of antibiotics should only be used for very serious infections.

I met a guy who credits it with curing him of cancer. The medical industry gave him 6 months to live and that was over 10 years ago.
