Common Antibiotic Increases Risk of Death by 250%! New England Journal of Medicine

Common antibiotic boosts death risk: study

A popular antibiotic used for treating bronchitis, pneumonia, ear infections and sexually transmitted diseases may boost the risk of death, a US study said Wednesday.

Azithromycin has been on the worldwide market since the 1980s, but the study in the New England Journal of Medicine is the first to document serious heart risks — up to a 2.5-fold higher chance of cardiovascular fatalities — in the first five days of treatment compared to another or no antibiotic.

The comparison was based on an examination of patient records in the southern US state of Tennessee from 1992 to 2006.

Researchers at Vanderbilt University compared about 348,000 prescriptions of azithromycin to millions of records from people who were not treated with any antibiotics or who received amoxicillin, a similar medication that is considered heart safe.

The analysis found there were 47 more deaths per million in those taking azithromycin compared to those on amoxicillin.

When researchers examined patients already at high risk for heart problems, the chance increased to 245 additional cardiovascular deaths per million in the azithromycin group compared to the amoxicillin takers.

While the relative number of fatalities was low, researchers said the findings offer new information about possible dangers that doctors and patients should consider.

“We believe this study adds important information on the risk profile for azithromycin,” said lead author Wayne Ray, professor of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University.

“For patients with elevated cardiovascular risk and infections for which there are alternative antibiotics, the cardiovascular effects of azithromycin may be an important clinical consideration.”

The Croatian pharmaceutical company Pliva first patented azithromycin in 1981, and later struck a worldwide deal with Pfizer to sell the antibiotic worldwide. Pfizer branded the treatment Zithromax and Zmax.

Azithromycin is a macrolide antibiotic that works by stopping the growth of bacteria.

Side effects may include

  • skin rashes
  • itching
  • swelling
  • difficulty breathing or swallowing
  • rapid, pounding or irregular heartbeats, according to the American Hospital Formulary Service.

Oh Where Oh where Has the FDA Gone?

The Charter given to the FDA by Congress specifies that the FDA is supposed to protect the American people from harmful drugs.  So where the hell have they been since 1981 on this antibiotic? How many other antibiotics are silently killing us while the drug companies make their extreme fortunes?

What is the Formal Name Given to Antibiotics?

MYCO-TOXINS! They kill the good bacteria that make up 80% of your immune system at a time when you need your immune system the most; when you are sick! Now you can get a Candida overgrowth and have uncontrolled yeast traveling throughout your body.  Welcome to modern medicine!

Here is a Better Way; ZERO Toxicity!

Humans have used silver in some form for at least 4,000 years without any known deaths or any reports of harm being done (at least we can’t find any)

We believe that you are entitled to see real proof from FDA-certified independent labs that follow Good Lab Practices (GLP) and are recognized by the International Standards Organization (ISO).

These lab reports are just a few examples of how powerful NutraSilver® is when it comes to killing these tested pathogens in in-vitro lab tests. Tests from around the world demonstrate the amazing “germ-killing power” when you read these following laboratory tests results.

NutraSilver is Non-toxic

Toxicity is important to know before you begin to take any Dietary Supplement or medicine.  It is wonderfully assuring to know from these and many other tests that NutraSilver has ZERO toxicity and cannot harm you in any way.

Usually, when these types of tests are conducted, the mice are expected to diminish there activity, yet the opposite happened: they actually thrived on NutraSilver and even gained weight which is very unusual for toxicity testing. None of the mice was harmed in any way by NutraSilver.

Some practitioners claim that colloidal silver can build up and damage the liver and kidneys.  This is blatantly false as there is no known evidence to support this rumor.

Here are some important facts about NutraSilver:

NutraSilver Effectiveness

NutraSilver® has undergone extensive testing by third-party independent laboratories, validating its effectiveness in killing a variety of life-threatening bacteria, viruses and fungal infections.

There is no doubt that more research is warranted and we invite those interested in discovering the entire truth about the effectiveness of NutraSilver® to identify themselves and work together to unravel the mysteries  of  and how NutraSilver can play a prominent role science.
