Death by MRSA Super-bug
February 3, 2011 Leave a comment
MRSA deaths are on the rise in the United States and around the world. A study published in mid-October in JAMA, the American Medical Association’s journal, reported that there were an estimated 18,650 MRSA deaths in the U.S. in 2005. The MRSA death rate in the U.S. is now higher than the AIDS death rate.
Worse Than Expected
In fact, the number of MRSA-related deaths in the U.S. is significantly higher than public health officials once thought. Although MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) infections are usually harmless, they can be life-threatening when they enter an open wound or develop in individuals whose immune systems are compromised, such as the elderly, infants, HIV-positive patients, and patients who undergo invasive medical procedures.
Even Among the Healthy
The news of an MRSA death in an otherwise-healthy 17-year-old boy in Virginia illustrates the potential for fatal MRSA infections even among the general population. Individuals can develop serious MRSA infections from contact with the bacteria in the community at large, or in healthcare settings.
According to the JAMA study, about 85% of the invasive MRSA infections reported were associated with the patients’ healthcare experience. About two-thirds of the time, the MRSA developed when the patient was not staying at the hospital or clinic, and about one-third of the infections developed during hospitalization.
What’s also worrisome is the continuing growth of the MRSA infection rate. MRSA is a “superbug” that has mutated to be resistant to almost all types of treatment. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), MRSA infections accounted for just 2% of the total number of staph infections in 1974; the percentage had grown to 22% by 1995, and in 2004 the percentage of MRSA infections was 63%.
Preventing an MRSA Infection
The JAMA study noted that nearly 95,000 people contracted serious MRSA infections in the U.S. in 2005. The 18,650 MRSA deaths that year would account for almost 20% of that number.
MRSA deaths can often be prevented — primarily by preventing a serious MRSA infection in the first place. Treatment with the antibiotic vancomycin can still be effective against MRSA, but even this effectiveness cannot be counted on. It’s best to prevent MRSA by:
washing your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
insisting that healthcare staff wash their hands before coming into contact with you
keeping scrapes and cuts clean and bandaged
avoiding contact with other people’s scrapes, cuts, and bandages
not sharing personal items such as bath towels or sporting equipment
How Does NutraSilver Compare to Traditional Antibiotic MRSA Disease Treatments?
Unlike antibiotics, NutraSilver kills viruses, bacteria and fungal infections. There are no known side effects using NutraSilver other than taking too much too fast (healing crisis). None of the traditional side effects of using traditional antibiotics exists using NutraSilver. NutraSilver can be a safe, effective and comfortable experience eliminating MRSA from the body without allergic reactions or any other life-threatening side effects known to exist using current antibiotics therapies.

“This is our second order & we’re devoted customers for LIFE. I was extremely sick with my MRSA since 2005. Doctors just seemed to be killing me the more they treated me. I only had one so-called “good” week per month that I felt
“OK.” We found NutraSilver mentioned on a MRSA discussion board, that day, on April 30th, we ordered. I need to tell you…I have not had one single down day since I’ve been taking NutraSilver. I no longer take 6 hour naps during the day (after a full nights rest), my rashes & boils disappeared entirely, sinus congestion & migraines no longer hit me (NOT even ONE since I started this), I no longer have any monster-sized gland swelling in my neck or bad ear infections (which I had 3 WEEKS out of each month)–and my energy is restored back to how it felt BEFORE I acquired MRSA in ’05. I am able to spend time doing things I love…most importantly, I am now able to spend A LOT of wake time with my teenage son! “
“I am a 38 year old female, single parent… I was terrified, hopeless & knew that I was inching closer to the grave, I prepared my Last Will & Testament and I put a couple Life Insurance policies on myself. I was very depressed from it all. I couldn’t help but be anything but with the thought of leaving my son behind.“
“Today…I sleep through the night, I am up early in the morning, no naps..I stay on the go, I am swimming 100 laps 6 days a week on top of my daily cardio & strength training. I haven’t had ANY energy to exercise since 2005!! I’m eating as a vegetarian now and since I ordered your product the first time around, I’ve lost 65 lbs that I had gained while I was down ill…with 20 more to go! “
“NutraSilver has brought me back to LIFE. It’s literally wiped out ALL of my MRSA symptoms & I now keep it combined with a Pro-biotic and Golden Seal. I maintain taking NutraSilver at a dose 40 drops a day. My son and I cannot EVER thank you enough..YOU helped save my life when 19 hospital stays & the strongest of medication couldn’t even make a dent! “
“YOU GUYS ARE ANGELS!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! “
