Finally, albeit slowly, the veil is being lifted and people are learning the true cause of drug-resistant superbug infections.
I’ve been screaming from the rooftops for years now that it’s not prescription antibiotic drugs used for medical purposes that are causing pathogens to mutate and turn into drug-resistant superbugs. That’s just the cover story.
Instead, the real problem is the tons of antibiotics that are being fed to farm animals each year to help fatten them up and bring them to market faster.
This meat is then sold to consumers like you and me, filling us with low doses of antibiotic drugs every time we have a piece of bacon, a hamburger, a hot dog or even some chicken wings.
This in turn kills off weaker pathogens but allows superbugs to develop and colonize our bodies. Here’s what you need to know...
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for TheSilverEdge.com...
According to this article in the L.A. Times, the UCLA Medical Center is now serving their patients antibiotic-free meat in hopes of “striking a blow against so-called superpathogens.”
According to the article:
“Feeding antibiotics to cows, chicken and pigs is a common practice that enhances growth in the animals but also contributes to the growing problem of antibiotic resistance: when microbes evolve to become impervious to attack, making it more and more difficult for physicians to treat infections.
Bacteria that are susceptible to treatment die off in the presence of antimicrobial medication, allowing other bacteria that are resistant to drugs to thrive -- and endanger patients.”
In other words, UCLA Medical Center is now tacitly admitting the real problem that results in the development of drug-resistant superbug infections, i.e., the antibiotic-laced meat we’re fed each day, not the prescription of antibiotics many people get once or twice a year to help fight a sore throat, ear infection or sinus infection.
The Culprits: FDA and USDA
Now that major hospitals are belatedly (and still somewhat quietly) admitting it's the antibiotic-laden meat that's causing the drug-resistant superbug problem, maybe the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the FDA will finally do something about it.
These two agencies are directly responsible for the 23,000 deaths per year from antibiotic-resistant superbugs.
They've allowed farmers to feed antibiotics to cattle, sheep, pigs and even chickens and turkeys on a daily basis, because the antibiotics fatten the animals up faster, allowing the farmers to get them to market faster.
This increases farming profits by literally billions of dollars per year, which is precisely why the USDA and the FDA have been so remiss in banning the use of antibiotic drugs in the feed of farm animals.
And this is why an estimated 80% of antibiotic drugs sold each year – an astonishing 17 million pounds of antibiotic drugs -- are used in agriculture rather than in human medicine. (See here and here.)
According to a 2013 “Threat Report” from the Centers for Disease Control, feeding antibiotics to animals on a daily basis is the real cause of superbug infections:
“Resistant bacteria can contaminate the foods that come from those animals, and people who consume these foods can develop antibiotic-resistant infections.
The use of antibiotics for promoting growth is not necessary, and the practice should be phased out.”
It’s a bona-fide crime – replete with literally millions of victims annually, and tens of thousands of deaths.
Yet the FDA and USDA to date won’t do anything about it. They continue to allow Big Agriculture to use antibiotic drugs indiscriminately in farm animal feed in order to fatten up farm animals faster and make more money – in spite of the fact it’s literally killing people.
Folks, as I've written many, many times, this is why over 50% of all of the meat you buy in supermarkets is now contaminated with superbugs like MRSA (see documentation here and learn what you can do about it).
And it's why more than two million Americans acquire deadly superbug infections each and every year, and 23,000 of them die from their infections.
The meat we eat is riddled with low-levels of antibiotics. And when you eat it on a daily basis, it's like eating a small dose of antibiotic drugs every day.
This gradually makes the pathogens that inhabit your body virtually immune to antibiotic drugs. The weak pathogens are killed off, but the strong ones survive and mutate into deadly superbugs.
So when you end up with a serious infection, the antibiotics the doctor gives you simply no longer work. And the pathogen takes over, wreaking havoc inside your body.
Colloidal Silver Works!
Thankfully, in clinical studies safe, natural colloidal silver has been demonstrated time and time again to work against the deadly superbugs.
· In fact, in clinical study after study after study after study after study after study after study silver has been demonstrated to kill the drug-resistant super-pathogens.
· Indeed, colloidal silver even works against the flesh-eating MRSA pathogen, as numerous studies and anecdotal reports confirm.
· What’s more, recent studies demonstrate the fact that colloidal silver even increases the effectiveness of antibiotic drugs by up to 1,000x.
· See also “Colloidal Silver versus the Superbugs” for an overview of six different clinical studies demonstrating colloidal silver to be highly effective against drug-resistant pathogens.
So it’s critical to have colloidal silver on hand at all times, because you simply never know when you (or someone you love) is going to pick up a deadly superbug infection and might need colloidal silver.
After all, the FDA and USDA have already proven we can’t trust them to protect us and our families. They’ve known about the problem with feeding antibiotics to farm animals for since 1977, and haven’t done a thing about it. So we have to protect ourselves.
Ultimately, the word will continue to get out about the true cause of drug-resistant superpathogens and the tens of thousands of deaths they cause annually.
And at some point the FDA and USDA will have to answer for their incompetence and utter contempt of the American people.
But until then, be sure to learn how to use colloidal silver safely and effectively.
FREE Colloidal Silver Dosage Report
The first step is to obtain a FREE copy of my 30-page Colloidal Silver Safe Dosage Report, and read it carefully.
You’ll learn how to calculate your maximum safe daily dosage level based on your body weight and the ppm (or concentration) of the colloidal silver product you’re using.
The second step would be to learn how experienced colloidal silver users are successfully using colloidal silver to combat an astonishing variety of infections and diseases.
Meanwhile, I’ll be back next week with another great article on colloidal silver…
Yours for the safe, sane and responsible use of colloidal silver,
