MRSA in Your Food; Shocking News

I don’t know about you, but I prefer not to deliberately consume MRSA in my food.  Yet that is what is occurring in American diets; MRSA is rampant in our meat supplies, fresh on your dinner-plate!

Money or Health, take your pick

Livestock farmers in the United States are coming under increasing pressure to cut down on the non-therapeutic use of antibiotics, after experts revealed that antibiotic resistance could aid the evolution of superbugs such as MRSA in humans.

Speaking at a science conference in London on Monday 26 March, Prof Lance Price, lead author a study into the use of antibiotics in livestock, said genome sequencing had provided “rock solid” evidence that antibiotic resistance had contributed to the emergence of the superbug MRSA.

EU ban

The EU banned the use of antibiotics as growth promoters in 2006, but US producers still use them widely, for growth promotion and to compensate for over-crowding and unsanitary conditions, said Erik Olson, Director of Food Programs of Pew Health Group.  At least they care about consumers in Europe!

In the US it is estimated that livestock producers use 300mg of antibiotics for every kg of meat produced, compared to UK producers, who only use approximately 115mg/kg.

“By aggressively controlling antibiotics in food animal production and human medicine we can ratchet back resistance considerably,” said Prof Price.

US failing to protect it’s citizens in favor of higher profits for meat producers

The experts admitted the US was significantly behind Europe and warned that its failure to address the issue immediately could have implications on trade in the future.

A US court recently ordered the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to address the overuse of penicillin and tetracycline in animal feed as growth promoters.

What can you, the consumer do to protect yourself?

You can buy organic meat only.  this is the only way to ensure that MRSA is not in your diet because in order do obtain the “Organic” designation, the meat producer must be certified that they are NOT using antibiotics on their livestock.

What can you do if you suspect you have MRSA?

When antibiotics are administered too often — whether to humans or to animals — a few strong bacteria survive and reproduce, giving rise to new generations of resistant organisms. The use of silver was tested against MRSA and staph in several studies and found to be effective. FDA-certified independent lab tests demonstrate that NutraSilver has zero toxicity to the human body, yet it is utterly lethal to the tested pathogens.
“Colloidal silver has proven to be toxic to all tested species of fungi, bacteria, protozoa, parasites and many viruses. More importantly—unlike conventional antibiotics—infectious agents cannot build a resistance to silver. Taken internally, it may improve digestion; help prevent colds, flu and all organism-caused diseases. It can be used as a douche, atomized, nebulized or inhaled. Applied externally, it has been shown to help with things such as skin abrasions and burns (including sun burn). It can also be dropped into the eyes and ears to help the body overcome infection.”  — Kurt Grange, Ph.D., N.D., nutritional bio-physiologist and author
“My 4 year old daughter has MRSA. As an MD, I had access to virtually every MRSA/Staph treatment available to Western Medicine. Nothing worked. I applied NutraSilver, a natural mineral, on my daughter topically. She also took small amounts orally. Within 4 days I saw an impressive improvement. NutraSilver really came through for us!”— Mike, MD, 2010
