MRSA Superbug Lawsuit: Court Orders FDA to Do Its Job

MRSA is found on your dinner table

80% of all antibiotics use in the USA is for animals

This week a judge told FDA to reverse course regarding antibiotic overuse in livestock and protect the effectiveness of the medicine for humans.

For the past 35 years the FDA has supposedly been reviewing the routine use of antibiotics in animal feed when in fact the agency was simply sitting on its hands. Then, last December, the agency caved to pressure and quietly withdrew any attempt to require the removal of antibiotics from animal feed.

Back in 1977, FDA concluded that feeding animals low doses of certain antibiotics used in human medicine, namely, penicillin and tetracyclines, could promote antibiotic-resistant bacteria capable of infecting people. Despite this conclusion—and in direct violation of laws requiring that the agency move on its findings—FDA failed to take action for the next 35 years.

The so-called “preventive” use of antibiotics in livestock is routine and widespread—80% of all antibiotics sold in US go into farm animal feed. Factory farms use them to ward off illness in animals that are kept in overcrowded, filthy living conditions, which are a perfect environment for the spread of illness. These antibiotics are also used to promote increased growth in animals.

MRSA "superbug" in your food!

How much of your beef is contaminated with MRSA?

However, antibiotics given to animals are transferred to humans through direct contact, environmental exposure, and the consumption and handling of contaminated meat and poultry products—making humans vulnerable to antibiotic-resistant superbugs, which are now a global problem. Moreover, a study found that up to half of US meat was contaminated with antibiotic-resistant staph.

Federal Court rules against the FDA

US Federal Court, New York

Now, as a result of the lawsuit, FDA is forced to take action on its own safety findings by withdrawing approval for most non-therapeutic uses of penicillin and tetracyclines in animal feed, unless the industry can prove in public hearings that those drug uses do not affect human health. The judge also ruled that FDA must warn drug makers that the government may soon ban the agricultural use of antibiotics for animals that are not sick.

Court instructions to the FDA

“For the foregoing reasons, Plaintiffs’ Motion for Summary Judgment on their first claim for relief is granted and Defendants’ Motion for Summary Judgment is denied. Defendants are hereby ordered to initiate withdrawal proceedings for the relevant NADAs / ANADAs (approvals to use antibiotics).

Specifically, the Commissioner of the FDA or the Director of the CVM must re issue a notice of the proposed withdrawals (which may be updated) and provide an opportunity for a hearing to the relevant drug sponsors; if drug sponsors timely request hearings and raise a genuine and substantial issue of fact, the FDA must hold a public evidentiary hearing. If, at the hearing, the drug sponsors fail to show that use of the drugs is safe, the Commissioner must issue a withdrawal order.”

Who does the FDA protect, anyway?What exactly is the Court ordering the FDA to do?

Although the Court is ordering the FDA to complete mandatory withdrawal proceedings the relevant penicillin and tetracycline NADAs/ANADAs, the Court is not ordering a particular outcome as to the final issuance of a withdrawal order. If the drug sponsors demonstrate that the subtherapeutic use of penicillin and/or tetracyclines is safe, then the Commissioner cannot withdraw approval.

So Ordered.

MRSA Now Accounts for More Deaths in the USA than HIV/ AIDS

The greatest challenge to medical science today is MRSA, the number one cause of infectious deaths in hospitals. Since the mid 1950’s MRSA has evolved to become nearly invincible to most antibiotics. Because of this, science is frantically seeking a replacement the will eliminate MRSA symptoms while avoiding the constant cycle of new antibiotic, MRSA mutates and is impervious to it so new antibiotics must be created.

What can you do to protect you and your family?

You can PREVENT MRSA infection by taking small amounts of colloidal silver.
 
“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

Quick, Natural Remedy for Food Poisoning

Food Poisoning Symptoms

Symptoms of food poisoning depends on the type of contaminant and the amount eaten. The symptoms can develop rapidly, within 30 minutes, or slowly, worsening over days to weeks. Most of the common contaminants cause:

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • abdominal cramping
  • fever

Usually food poisoning is not serious, and the illness runs its course in 24-48 hours.

Viruses account for most food poisoning cases where a specific contaminant is found.

Estimates of Foodborne Illness in the United States

A collage of a magnifying glass, shopping cart with food, lab tech and petri dish.The CDC estimates that each year roughly 1 in 6 Americans (or 48 million people) gets sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die of foodborne diseases. The 2011 estimates provide the most accurate picture yet of which foodborne bacteria, viruses, microbes (“pathogens”) are causing the most illnesses in the United States, as well as estimating the number of foodborne illnesses without a known cause.

Disease-causing Salmonella species have recently been re-classified into a single species, Salmonella enterica. Other salmonellae are frequent causes of food borne illness, especially from poultry and raw eggs and more generally from food that has been cooked or frozen and not eaten straight away.

International Travelers Should Take NutraSilver® Along With Them

Food poisoning is a common, usually mild, but sometimes a deadly illness. Depending on the contaminant, fever and chills, bloody stools, dehydration, and nervous system damage may follow. These symptoms may affect one person or a group of people who ate the same thing (this would be called an outbreak).

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ( CDC) estimates that in the United States alone, food poisoning causes about 76 million illnesses, 325,000 hospitalizations, and up to 5,000 deaths each year. One of the most common bacterial forms of infection, the salmonellae organisms, account for one billion dollars in medical costs and lost work time.
  • Worldwide, diarrheal illnesses are among the leading causes of death. Travelers to developing countries often encounter food poisoning in the form of traveler’s diarrhea or “Montezuma’s revenge.” Additionally, there are new global threats to the world’s food supply through terrorist actions using food toxins as weapons.

We invite you to try NutraSilver. Since NutraSilver® comes with a money-back guarantee, you have nothing to loose except your food poisoning symptoms.

Moms Are Wise To Carry NutraSilver With Them for Home and Other Uses

You never know when you will need something for little emergencies at home. Many well-known companies are putting silver on their bandages to kill pathogens, so why not put a drop or two of NutraSilver on a plain bandage and save yourself some money? Since NutraSilver comes in a 1 ounce sealable bottle, you can carry it around with you in your purse or glove-box. NutraSilver is fantastic to carry to soccer or other games where kids sometimes get cuts and scratches.

Pathogens – The Building Blocks of Contagions

What is the makeup of human disease?

Pathogens are described as the first link in the chain of infection, or disease producers.  It usually refers to infectious organisms, such as bacteria and viruses. There are many categories for these producers. Most bacteria are harmless. Some, such as the live bacteria used in yogurt, can be considered beneficial. Pathogenic bacteria cause infectious diseases. Diseases that are considered worldwide epidemics include pneumonia, streptococcus and food borne illness, such as Salmonella and Shigella. Other common infections are tetanus, leprosy, typhoid fever and diphtheria. Conditionally pathogenic organisms cause skin infections and inflammatory responses, such as meningitis.

Intracellular pathogens are only visible through a microscope. Examples include typhus and urinary tract infections. Pathogenic viruses cause smallpox, measles, chickenpox, and Ebola. Virulence is defined as the ability to cause a disease. The stronger the virus is, the more virulent it is considered. The body is able to protect itself from many of these diseases, regardless of the type. However, the longer an infection can survive outside a human host, the stronger it is. The bacterium that is thought to have caused the Black Plague was particularly strong. HIV is on a similar scale of severity.

HIV is just a virus

Salmonella

One of the more common ways for pathogens to find their way into a human body is through contaminated food and water. People who eat the food, or drink the water become infected. Once the infection grows, it spreads rapidly from one person to the next. This happens frequently in developing countries, due to their inability to prevent sewage from seeping into the drinker water supply or cropland.  There are few regulations for food safety in many of these countries. Advances in medical technology have made it possible to defend against many forms of these viruses through the use of vaccinations, antibiotics and fungicides.

Requirements for food safety, hygiene and water treatment methods have reduced food borne viruses in

c-Diff

industrialized countries. There are several ways for water to be treated commercially to reduce the number of pathogens. Treatment plants use a variety of methods to ensure successful purification. Sand and charcoal are frequently used to filter the water in the first stages. Disinfecting water includes using chemicals, such as chlorine. Ultraviolet light has also proven effective. Colloidal silver, when mixed with water, has proven to successfully remove bacteria and is frequently used by consumers.

Food Poisoning Cause 5,000 Unnecessary Deaths a Year in the USA

Everyone at some time during their lives has experienced food poisoning. This is a discussion of what food poisoning is and how to deal with it effectively and quickly.

Food poisoning can occur when someone eats food or a beverage contaminated with harmful bacteria, parasites, viruses, or toxins. Many scientists now use the term “foodborne illness” to describe the effects of food contaminated with E. coli, botulism, and Salmonella, among other things.

E. Coli, Botulism, etc.

The most common types of food poisoning are caused by widely present bacteria such as Escherichia coli ( E. coli) and Staphylococcus. Other frequently seen types of food poisoning are Salmonella and botulism.

The causes of food poisoning include:

  • Not cooking meat or dairy products long enough or well enough
  • Leaving food unrefrigerated for too long
  • Unsanitary food preparation techniques
  • Home canning processes that don’t eliminate the risk of botulism

Symptoms of Food Poisoning

The types of food poisoning that are most common usually start within two to six hours of eating the contaminated food, but that time period can also be shorter, or much longer (days or a couple of weeks), depending on the organism responsible for the food poisoning. Food poisoning symptoms include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea (may be bloody)
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Fever, chills
  • Headache
  • Weakness

Millions Sickened; Thousands of Deaths

Every year, about 75 million people around the world experience food poisoning, and the most severe cases cause some 7 million deaths. In the U.S., about 5,000 people die from food poisoning each year.

Although we can try to reduce the risk of food poisoning in our homes, we all have food products that come from sources we cannot control, both domestic and imported, and of course we don’t have any control over the selection and preparation of food that we choose to eat in restaurants and other social settings.

Many Products Are Vulnerable to Food Poisoning

Lately, many products have given rise to food poisoning cases in the U.S. An incomplete list of products that have been the basis of food poisoning outbreaks in the U.S. since 1985 includes:

  • Spinach, green onions, bean sprouts, strawberries, and other produce
  • Peanut butter
  • Canned chili
  • Beef, chicken, eggs, fish, cheese, and other animal products
  • Apple juice
  • Ice cream
  • Pet food

The People Most Vulnerable to Food Poisoning

The very young and the very old are especially vulnerable to food poisoning. People with medical conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, or a weakened immune system are also at higher risk. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should be especially careful to avoid contracting food poisoning. Travel outside the U.S. to locales with greater exposure to organisms that cause food poisoning also increases the risk.

New Approach to Food Poisoning

In a recent FDA-certified lab test, 3.2 billion cells of Salmonella Arizonae were tested and NutraSilver® demonstrated an amazing ‘kill rate’ of 99.999% in 30 minutes with only one drop of NutraSilver.

Very few Americans have not heard of the many recent deaths and sicknesses from these two deadly pathogens: eColi and Salmonella. You can protect yourself from them with nominal use of  NutraSilver as a preventative nutritional supplement. Most food poisoning can be reversed quickly with NutraSilver.

Should you get food poisoning, immediately take 20 or so drops of NutraSilver and you should experience a dramatic reduction in symptoms within an hour or so.
