MRSA Seems to be Everywhere!

MRSA Found in Poultry Meat
GERMANY – Of 20 chicken tests done at random in supermarkets and discount stores in Berlin, Hamberg, Cologne, Nuremberg and Stuttgart, 10 were positive with ESBL (Extended Spectrum Beta-lactamase) and methicillin-resistant bacteria MRSA (Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus).
“This is the result of persistent disturbing abuse of antibiotics,” said the president of the environmental organization, BUND, Hubert Weiger, who criticized the use of antibiotics in animal production.
MRSA Scare Following Chaminade-Lynbrook Wrestling Match
A wrestler from Lynbrook High School was diagnosed with the bacterial infection MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) last week reportedly following a meet at Mineola High School during a match against a player from Chaminade on Jan. 7, according to a Newsday report.
MRSA still found in children’s hospitals
MRSA is still lurking in our maternity and children’s hospital, new figures reveal. Although the overall rates of the superbug in our hospitals has fallen, the HSE has confirmed that the maternity wards are still in danger.
Over 200 cases of MRSA were detected in the first nine months of last year with maternity and children’s hospitals among those affected, according to a new report from the HSE-Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC).
Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria From the Fukushima Nuclear Accident?
Bacteria are notorious for developing resistance to antibiotics through rapid mutation and natural selection. Radiation is a sure way to stimulate mutations. Could the radiation that will be contaminating the environment surrounding the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant for hundreds of years produce bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics? Researchers, Shigeyuki Nakanishi and colleagues reporting in the February 1, 2012 issue of the journal Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety have performed experiments to find out.
The nasty ability of bacteria to develop resistance to our most powerful antibiotics is a major global problem. MRSA, a drug-resistant strain of the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus, thrives in hospitals where antibiotic use has bred a super-bug commonly known as the “flesh-eating” bacteria. Vancomycin is the only remaining antibiotic that can touch the antibiotic resistant germ, but new strains of MRSA are showing resistance even to vancomycin.
Antibiotic Use In Farm Animals Still Broadly Unaddressed Despite ‘Fanfare’ For FDA Move
The Food and Drug Administration’s latest move concerning the use of antibiotics in farm animals garnered a good deal of praise last week, but public health advocates say much more is needed.
While such advocates welcome the FDA’s proposed partial ban on farm use for one family of drugs important in treating human bacterial infections, they warn that it would do little to combat the overall rise of antibiotic-resistant superbugs such as Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
Cattle, swine, chickens and other livestock receive an estimated 80 percent of the nation’s antibiotics, according to the FDA.
Whether used to treat our future food, prevent the spread of disease in cramped conditions or simply to promote growth, animal antibiotics are thought to affect human health via multiple pathways: direct or indirect contact with food, water, air or anywhere manure goes.
MRSA sanitizers largely a myth, FDA warns
New, Natural Mineral Demonstrates Amazing MRSA “Kill-rates”
In FDA-certified independent in-vitro lab tests, a natural mineral, NutraSilver, demonstrated 1.3 billion cells of MRSA were killed at the rate of 99.9999% in just 60 seconds!
