Resistance to antibiotics risks health ‘catastrophe’ to rank with terrorism and climate change

Britain’s health system could slip back by 200 years unless the “catastrophic threat” of antibiotic resistance is successfully tackled, the Government’s Chief Medical Officer warns today.

CDC charts the alarming rate of antibiotic resistant bugs

A strain of Salmonella bacteria traced to pork and beef sold at live animal markets is showing an alarming rise in antibiotic resistance, which the World Health Organization has warned is a growing global threat.

Phi Beta Iota: This is not news in one sense. Just as with cyber-security, peak oil, water catastrophe, the governments have had ample warning. Laurie Garrett, as a New York Times reporter, performed brilliantly in the 1990’s on this topic.

SchwartzReport: USA #1 Threat to Peace

Stephan A. Schwartz

Stephan A. Schwartz

As you read this think about what has happened to the United States from the time of the Marshall Plan when people around the world looked to the U.S. as an exemplar of what a modern society should be, until today when we are the most feared nation in the world, the number one threat to peace. This didn’t happen to us, we did it to ourselves, and only we can undo it.   

The #1 threat to peace in the world? World polling suggests it’s the United States

In early 2014, Gallup International/WIN released its annual global survey based on research conducted the previous year. The most striking statistic was that 24 percent of people around the world believe that the U.S. poses the greatest threat to peace. The runners-up were far behind: eight percent of respondents thought Pakistan was the greatest threat, while six percent thought it was China. And only five percent of those surveyed thought Iran was a threat to world peace. The numbers are based on interviews with 1,000 people in 65 different nations. (The survey published this year did not contain the same question.)

SchwartzReport: Half of All US Children Will Be Autistic by 2025 Warns MIT Scientists

I have been thinking about this story all day. If one out of two babies born in the U.S. will be autistic by 2025, if the present trend continues, what kind of world can that be? In 2013 the number of live births in the U.S. was 3,952,840. as described this would mean 1,976,420 autistic children. Within a generation the care of these millions would consume the nation. This is completely insane. Say the estimate is 50% off. It would still be 19,764,200 in 20 years. All of this damage in the service of profit.

Half of All Children Will Be Autistic by 2025, Warns Senior Research Scientist at MIT

Phi Beta Iota: We include diseases spread by industrial mal-practice in the “infectious” disease category ranked as high-level threat to humanity number two. Our ignorant corrupt government is literally murdering our public.

Holistic design.

The Success Story Of Anti-Malaria Faso Soap

EXTRACT

The soap is enriched with a special secret mixture of local herbs and leaves a scent  that repels mosquitoes on the skin. In addition waste water products from the soap contain substances that prevent the development of mosquito larvae. This is important, since poor sanitation is one of the main factors in the spread of malaria. Read more.
