What causes antibiotic resistance? - Kevin Wu
View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/how-antibiotics-become-resistant-over-time-kevin-wu Right now, you are inhabited by trillions of microorganisms. Many of these bacteria are harmless (or even helpful!), but there are a few strains of ‘super bacteria’ that are pretty nasty -- and they’re growing resistant to our antibiotics. Why is this happening? Kevin Wu details the evolution of this problem that presents a big challenge for the future of medicine. Lesson by Kevin Wu, animation by Brett Underhill.

Antibiotics explained in Simple and Fun Language | Urdu\ Hindi | My Channel Video | Goher Ali Rizvi
What are antibiotics, how do they work and why do we see resistance in antibiotic.. this video answers all these questions. Alexander Fleming discovered in 1928 when he found Pencillium and Penicillin was found. There are two types of Antibiotic Bactereostatic and Bactericidal Bother antibiotics have different mode of action and play major role in immunity. Antibiotics are only available against Bacteria but not virus. Antibiotics stop DNA replication or stop its metabolism or it also stops its enzyme or substrate. Penicillin kills the bacteria by rupturing its bacterial cell wall, thereby killing bacteria but not harming our body cells. usage of antibiotics also effect normal flora of our body which becomes a challenge are a lot of our functions are dependent upon them. Antibiotics kill our helpful bacteria as well thereby disturbing our normal functions of body and causing side effects. Evolution of bacteria and their mutation caused a war between scientist and bacteria as they started mutating against antibiotics and we had to made newer and newer generation of antibiotics while bacteria kept challenging us. Disclaimer: at last of my video i mentioned that antibiotics should be used as last resort, But be very clear to follow complete instruction by your doctor as your doctor knows what is best for your health and condition. This video is for educational purposes and doesnt encourage taking any medication or using antibiotics just by watching this video. In any condition, consult your doctor who will prescribe according to your condition.

Antibiotics - What You Need To Know
See much more honest health information at: http://www.rehealthify.com/ Rehealthify offers reliable, up-to-date health information, anytime, anywhere, for free. -- video script below -- Antibiotics are powerful medicines that fight bacterial infections. Used properly, antibiotics can save lives. They either kill bacteria or keep them from reproducing. Your body's natural defenses can usually take it from there. Antibiotics do not fight infections caused by viruses, such as • Colds • Flu • Most coughs and bronchitis • Sore throats, unless caused by strep If a virus is making you sick, taking antibiotics may do more harm than good. Each time you take antibiotics, you increase the chances that bacteria in your body will be able to resist them. Later, you could get or spread an infection that those antibiotics cannot cure. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) causes infections that are resistant to several common antibiotics. When you take antibiotics, follow the directions carefully. It is important to finish your medicine even if you feel better. If you stop treatment too soon, some bacteria may survive and re-infect you. Do not save antibiotics for later or use someone else's prescription. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Why Antibiotics Fail
(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) Patients are frequently given the wrong antibiotics to treat bacterial infections, but it is not the physician who is at fault. The standard antibiotic test used worldwide is flawed since it is based on how well drugs kill bacteria on petri plates — not how well they kill bacteria in the body. Mike Mahan describes an “in vivo” antibiotic test that mimics conditions in the body. Drugs that pass the standard test often fail to treat bacterial infections, whereas drugs identified by the test are very effective. Recorded on 07/24/2017.

7 Signs You Should Be Taking Probiotics – Saturday Strategy
7 Signs You Should Be Taking Probiotics – Saturday Strategy If you are like so many people, chances are you have taken an antibiotic in the last year. Did you know that antibiotics not only wipe out the bad guys, but the good guys too? Even if you took one 7 years ago - if you have not replenished the good guys within your gut, chances are really high that you are struggling with imbalance, maybe unknowingly. If you struggle with: Irregular mood Skin issues Erratic sleep patterns Crazy cravings for sugar and other unhealthy food Bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea or cramping after meals Healthy weight management These are just some of the symptoms of an imbalanced gut. Which is why probiotics are so important to optimal health. They crowd out bad bacteria, preventing the bacteria’s ability to host in the body, which inhibits infection, inflammation and disease.

PneumoNP paved the way for the production and use of safer and more efficient antibiotics
PNEUMONP - Nanotherapeutics to Treat Antibiotic Resistant Gram-Negative Pneumonia Infections Martin is suffering from a respiratory tract infection caused by a bacterium. His clinician has unsuccessfully tried to cure him using several different types of antibiotics. The bacterium responsible for his lung infection has become resistant to the most widely used antibiotics available. Like Martin, millions of people are infected each year with bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics. Antibiotic resistance is now so widespread that the World Health Organisation regards it as one of the major current global health crises. In 2014, the European Commission started funding 15 international research projects to help solve the problem. Among these projects is PneumoNP. PneumoNP gathers together 11 partners from 6 European Member States. The consortium comprises research institutes, universities, small and medium businesses. The partners collaborated from 2014 to 2017 to develop a novel solution to diagnose and treat infections caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Sometimes bacteria are extremely resistant to antibiotics, meaning that no antibiotic is available to treat infections caused by these bacteria. That is why we need new antibiotics. The PneumoNP team yearned for more: they wanted to provide a more efficient antibiotic formulation that is also safer for the patient. Therefore, PneumoNP studied the efficiency of coupling the new antibiotics M33 and AA139 to 'nanocarriers'. The PneumoNP team developed several nanocarriers, using either lipid nanoparticles developed at Utrecht University in the Netherlands, or polymer nanoparticles developed by the research centre CIDETEC. As proof of concept, the new antibiotics in nanocarrier form were tested against an antibiotic-resistant bacterium associated with serious respiratory tract infections: the Klebsiella pneumoniae. After several years of research, the most promising antibiotics in nanocarrier form were selected for further studies in animals model. These were the M33 antibiotic coupled to dextran-based nanocarrier, the AA139 peptide encapsulated within the micellar nanocarrier and AA139 coupled with the dextran-based nanocarrier. The Erasmus University Medical Centre in the Netherlands carried experiments to test the therapeutic effects of the antibiotics in nanocarrier forms. They used rats with pneumonia caused by antibiotic-resistant strains of Klebsiella pneumoniae. They found that association of antibiotics with nanocarriers resulted in increased tolerability of the antibiotic in rats. Regarding the therapeutic efficacy, AA139-dextran and AA139-micelles appeared most promising showing increased survival of infected rats. After 4 years of research, the PneumoNP team delivered a functional diagnostics kit and showed the added value of new antibiotics coupled with nanoparticles in the treatment of respiratory tract infections caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria. This research is paving the way for the production and use of safer and more efficient antibiotics that will cure patients like Martin. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 604434.

How bacteria develop resistance to antibiotics
Antibiotics are used to treat or prevent bacterial infections but bacteria can become resistant to the antibiotics used against them. They will survive and pass this resistance on to future generations. They can even pass on resistance to unrelated bacteria. Development of antibiotic resistance is a natural process but misuse of antibiotics is accelerating the problem. This is why antibiotics need to be used wisely to reduce the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria throughout our community.

The Virus That Kills Drug-Resistant Superbugs
Antibiotic-resistant bacteria kill 23,000 people every year in the United States, and the United Nations estimates that by 2050, more people will die from antibiotic-resistant infections than currently die from cancer. Discovered 100 years ago, bacteriophages—viruses that eat bacteria—might provide an answer. But phage therapy has only been approved for use on humans in the former Soviet Union. Motherboard travels to Georgia to meet the doctors using phage therapy today, and meets with the American scientists trying to normalize phage therapy in the United States.

Antibiotic Resistance | Are we creating super viruses?
Antibiotics have saved millions of lives, but their misuse and overuse is making them less effective as bacteria develop resistance. Despite scientists’ warnings, antibiotic prescriptions in many countries continue to soar and antibiotic use in farming is at record levels. As a result, doctors are now seeing infections they can no longer treat. Are we facing the end of modern medicine? An antibiotic apocalypse that takes medicine back to the Dark Ages? Or will researchers outwit the incredibly clever bacteria and find novel ways to beat resistance?

Groups Press for US Ban on Antibiotics in Healthy Animals
This is the VOA Special English Agriculture Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish Antibiotics are used to cure bacterial infections. But about fifty years ago, farmers started to give small amounts of these drugs to healthy animals in their feed. Scientists found that antibiotics improve the growth rate of animals. But the practice soon led to criticism. Public health experts observed antibiotic-resistant bacteria growing in these animals. Experts say bacteria develop resistance from continual exposure to antibiotics. And resistant bacteria can make it harder to treat infections in humans. Today big livestock producers around the world use antibiotics for animal growth. Some countries are considering restrictions or already have them. The European Union began to enforce a ban five years ago, and South Korea has approved a new ban. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration first proposed to ban antibiotic use in healthy animals in nineteen seventy-seven. Congress, however, asked for more research. Today there is no ban. But in June of last year the FDA asked producers to stop the practice over time. That recommendation was not enough for some critics. Five environmental and consumer groups have asked a court to force a ban by the federal agency. Steve Roach is with the group Food Animal Concerns Trust, or FACT. He says, "As far as we can tell, all they were trying to do was kindly ask the industry to make changes." His group wants the government to ban the use of two common antibiotics at levels below those used to treat sick animals. He says, after thirty years, the time has come "for someone to put a little more pressure on them. And that is what the aim of the lawsuit is." Supporters of low-level antibiotic use in animals say there is no solid evidence linking it to drug-resistant infections in humans. They also say that in addition to increasing growth, the drugs help suppress diseases in animals confined together in large feeding operations. Ron Phillips is with the Animal Health Institute, a trade group for the animal-drug industry. He says suppressing animal disease means a safer food supply: "Sicker animals result in greater contamination on the meat. So the way to control pathogens on the farm, so that they do not transfer through the food chain, is to make sure we have healthy farm animals." Experts say the largest source of resistant bacteria is the overuse and misuse of antibiotics among people. For VOA Special English, I'm Alex Villarreal.

Antibiotic DB launches in the fight against antimicrobial resistance
A new and first of its kind database has been launched listing compounds that could be used to develop new antibiotics in a bid to tackle the global issue of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The new resource, outlined in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy, is the result of a collaboration between the University of Birmingham, the John Innes Centre and the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy. It comes after the World Health Organization in 2009 declared AMR one of the biggest threats to mankind and, if not addressed, by 2050 it could kill millions of people – more than from cancer or road traffic accidents. The free, open-access, searchable database, called AntibioticDB, brings together antibacterial compound discoveries that were once-promising leads from the past 40 years which have, for various reasons. http://www.antibioticdb.com/

Antibiotics and Resistance
A century ago, the top three causes of death were infectious diseases. More than half of all people dying in the United States died because of germs. Today, they account for a few percent of deaths at most. We owe much of that, of course, to antibiotics. The discovery of prontosil, the first synthetic modern antibiotic, earned Gerhard Dogagk the Nobel Prize in 1939. Mass-produced penicillin earned Alexander Fleming, Ernst Boris Chain and Howard Walter Florey one in 1945. It is hard to overstate how much less of a threat infectious diseases pose to us today. But we take antibiotics for granted. We use them inappropriately and indiscriminately. This has led many to worry that our days of receiving benefits from them are numbered. That's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage. This episode was adapted from a column Aaron wrote for the Upshot.

When antibiotics no longer work
The routine mass-medication of animals on intensive farms is a putting our lives at risk. Take action to stop this now www.ciwf.org.uk/antibiotic-misuse Animals should – and can – be kept healthy through good husbandry and good welfare, not through constant medication with antibiotics. Call on the UK Government to end the misuse of antibiotics. It is fueling the development of antibiotic-resistant superbugs which is endangering our health, AND supporting inhumane farming systems.

Bacteria Now Immune to Antibiotics?
Bacteria has become immune to antibiotics as we are now living in a post-antibiotic world according to an announcement by the World Health Organization (WHO). This vulnerability could lead to an era where minor infections and injuries could actually kill us.

WHO warning seven diseases now antibiotic resistant ++EMBARGO 14.00 GMT++
Doctors have known for many years that the overuse of antibiotic drugs has meant we are all becoming resistant to antibiotics, our defence against various bacterial infections. The warning from the World Health Organisation has been made before. In wealthy countries patients are offered several antibiotic drugs. If one doesn't work doctors try another. Now the WHO is urging doctors in all nations to introduce a system of surveillance, taking samples of the bacterias in their patients and noting the antibiotics which are resistant. The WHO says it's important to build up a central pool of data so that doctors around the world are able to identify and only use the antibiotics which are effective on particular bacteria. According to the WHO report released today: "serious diseases such as bloodstream infections, diarrhoea, pneumonia, urinary tract infections and sexual disease like gonorrhoea" are proving to be resistant to treatment by many classes of antibiotics. The WHO report says:"although multidrug-resistant TB is a growing concern it is largely under-reported, compromising control efforts". Here at Romania there is no central system for reporting drug resistance. Doctors such as Gabriel Adrian Popescu, a specialist in infectious diseases at Matei Bals Institute says the rapid changes in the country over the past 25 years with the collapse of Communism brought about massive social and economic upheaval that impacted on the health system. Romania has one of the highest rates of bacteria infection in the European Union, he says. "What happened during the last 25 years (toppling of the communism) was that we used antibiotics with an extremely low level of caution and all the rule about the use of antibiotics has been forgotten. Thus we are now the EU state that has both a very high level of antibiotics consumption, being among the top three states regarding the consumption (of antibiotics) per thousand people, but also (among the worst states) regarding bacterial resistance." Not only has antibiotic use become too common, there are no new drugs being produced to take the place of the ones which are no longer effective. The WHO says all the drugs which have been produced in the last fifty years are basically variations of what is already available. A report by the Centres for Disease Control in the US last year stated that each year at least two million people in America are infected with bacteria that are resistant to one or more of the antibiotics designed to treat those infections. At least 23,000 people in the US die each year as a direct result of these antibiotic-resistant infections and that figure doesn't include people who die from other conditions that were complicated by an antibiotic-resistant infection according to the CDC. Across the European Union it's estimated 25,000 people die because they have become resistant to antibiotic drugs. Also from the Matei Bals Infectious Diseases Institute, Doctor Adrian Streinu Cercel says: "During the last 20 years, the bacteria has developed very sophisticated resistance mechanisms and we are facing a situation in which we don't have antibiotics to treat the patient due to the existence of pan resistant germs." It is a truly global problem with resistance to E. coli from commonly used medicines noted in Europe particularly the east, the Western Pacific region and South East Asia. Stricter guidelines on hygiene has reduced the number of hospital-acquired infections such as MRSA in the UK. The WHO says the social and economic costs to economies are also high. People need longer treatments which become more expensive, in turn the patients are often unable to work and they and their families can suffer as a result. Inside the EU this practice is banned.

Antibiotics "just-in-case" | Debbie Goff | TEDxColumbus
Have you ever taken an antibiotic “just-in-case” there might be an infection and thought antibiotics are “risk-free” drugs? Prescribing antibiotics “just-in-case” carries the risk of creating superbugs that can be resistant to every antibiotic. The overuse of antibiotics in humans and animals today means untreatable infections tomorrow. Dr. Debbie Goff pharmacist, global antibiotic steward and advocate describes how consumers and patients need to become antibiotic stewards. It is no longer just up to medical professionals. Our children’s children depend on getting everyone engaged in antibiotic stewardship. Debbie Goff Pharm.D. is an internationally renowned infectious diseases clinical pharmacist who works hand in hand with physicians and pharmacists in hospitals across six continents advocating for the responsible use of antibiotics through antibiotic stewardship. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

It's Time to Save Antibiotics
At least 23,000 Americans die every year from antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns that the widespread overuse of antibiotics on factory farms is making them less effective. Medical experts, including from the World Health Organization, now warn that if we don’t stop the overuse of antibiotics they could stop working -- with potentially grave consequences for public health. Antibiotics are meant to be given in precise doses to treat specific types of infections. When they are used in mass quantities by farming operations it increases the likelihood that all kinds of bacteria, including the ones that make people sick, will develop resistance, and our life saving medicines won't work. We must urge President Obama's task force to push for more stringent regulations about antibiotic use on factory farms in their five-year action plan. Join our effort to convince the Obama Administration to stop the overuse of antibiotics on healthy farm animals!

Ramanan Laxminarayan: The coming crisis in antibiotics
Antibiotic drugs save lives. But we simply use them too much — and often for non-lifesaving purposes, like treating the flu and even raising cheaper chickens. The result, says researcher Ramanan Laxminarayan, is that the drugs will stop working for everyone, as the bacteria they target grow more and more resistant. He calls on all of us (patients and doctors alike) to think of antibiotics — and their ongoing effectiveness — as a finite resource, and to think twice before we tap into it. It’s a sobering look at how global medical trends can strike home.

ANTIBIOTIC OVER USE - හිතු මනාපෙට පෙති බොනවාද?
Introduction Antibiotics are medicines used to prevent and treat bacterial infections. Antibiotic resistance occurs when bacteria change in response to the use of these medicines. Bacteria, not humans or animals, become antibiotic-resistant. These bacteria may infect humans and animals, and the infections they cause are harder to treat than those caused by non-resistant bacteria. Antibiotic resistance leads to higher medical costs, prolonged hospital stays, and increased mortality. The world urgently needs to change the way it prescribes and uses antibiotics. Even if new medicines are developed, without behaviour change, antibiotic resistance will remain a major threat. Behaviour changes must also include actions to reduce the spread of infections through vaccination, hand washing, practising safer sex, and good food hygiene. Scope of the problem Antibiotic resistance is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. New resistance mechanisms are emerging and spreading globally, threatening our ability to treat common infectious diseases. A growing list of infections – such as pneumonia, tuberculosis, blood poisoning, gonorrhoea, and foodborne diseases – are becoming harder, and sometimes impossible, to treat as antibiotics become less effective. Where antibiotics can be bought for human or animal use without a prescription, the emergence and spread of resistance is made worse. Similarly, in countries without standard treatment guidelines, antibiotics are often over-prescribed by health workers and veterinarians and over-used by the public. Without urgent action, we are heading for a post-antibiotic era, in which common infections and minor injuries can once again kill.

Still Report #898 - First Superbug Found Resistant to All Antibiotics
The medical journal Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy announced today that researchers have discovered the first infectious agent resistant to all known antibiotics in the urinary tract infection of a 49-year-old Pennsylvania woman. According to the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – Dr. Thomas Frieden – speaking at the National Press Club in Washington today: “We risk being in a post-antibiotic world.” Called mcr-1, the new infection was first spotted in people and pigs in China. However, the patient reported on in the journal has not traveled outside the country recently. The study was conducted by the Walter Reed National Medical Center – a facility in Washington, D.C. that typically treats military personnel, both active duty and retired. According to the authors of the study: "(This) heralds the emergence of truly pan-drug resistant bacteria." To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of mcr-1 in the USA." The patient first visited a clinic at Walter Reed on April 26. There are no details available on the current condition of the patient, however, she was apparently treated unsuccessfully with the antibiotic colistin, which is only used against “nightmare bacteria.” According to Harvard microbiologist Dr. Gail Cassell: "It is dangerous and we would assume it can be spread quickly, even in a hospital environment if it is not well contained." Experts have warned for over 25 years that the day will come when superbugs will sufficiently mutate so that are completely antibiotic resistant. According to Dr. Frieden of the CD: "The more we look at drug resistance, the more concerned we are. The medicine cabinet is empty for some patients. It is the end of the road for antibiotics unless we act urgently." The reason humanity has come to the end of the road is that antibiotics have been overprescribed and even used in livestock to maximize profits, but the antibiotics are retained in the animals and when eaten by humans tend to encourage new surviving strains to develop more rapidly. Studies have shown that as many as 50% of antibiotics prescribed by hospitals are unnecessary or incorrect, further contributing to antibiotic resistance. New antibiotics are expensive to develop and so drugmakers have steered their research and development monies into medicines for cancer and rare diseases which command very high prices. In January dozens of drugmakers called on governments to subsidize crash development of new antibiotics to fight drug-resistant super-bugs. However, it is nearly impossible to imagine that any long-term success in the fight against infection is possible as long as allopathic medicine – the medicine of drugs and surgery – is the only path pursued. Every new antibiotic will soon be overtaken by the ever-mutating super-bugs. Many believe that humanity’s only good chance at salvation is placing an equal amount into researching alternative medicines and therapies - Naturopathy, Homeopathy, and finally king of all alternative therapies, Osteopathy. Osteopathy’s founder, Andrew Taylor Still, D.O. believed the human body was nature’s supreme drug-store. Humans have been around for thousands or millions of years – naturally adapting to diseases. Those whose bodies adapted more quickly lived longer to produce more offspring with better natural disease-fighting internal mechanisms. Still believed that a physician’s best practice was to remove the restrictions to the body’s natural healing processes: “A loving intelligent Maker of man … deposited in this body … drugs in abundance to cure all infirmities…. Man should study and use the drugs in this drug-store only.” “Osteopathy relies upon the inherent powers of the human body to secure and maintain health so long as its structural integrity is maintained, harmonious action of its parts is secured by mechanical adjustment, only healthy foods are administered, and Nature’s laws are observed.” “Any obstruction to the free flow of the body fluids or harmonious workings of its parts constitute lesions that result in diseased conditions.” “The Journal of Osteopathy”, Vol. XVI, #3, Kirksville, MO, March 1909, p. 151-158” In short, Still sought to bring the body’s mechanisms into a state of ease through osteopathic manipulative therapy. Without such treatment the body would fall into dis-ease. Dis-ease being cured by ease – is the only long-ranged, sure solution to superbugs. I’m still reporting from Washington. Good day.

This Syrup Is 10x More Powerful Than Penicillin
This Syrup Is 10x More Powerful Than Penicillin – Kills All Infections And Bacteria From Your Organism Please SUBSCRIBE : http://bit.ly/2e9Su11 Even though it is the end of the winter, we are constantly fighting against cold and flu. Namely, as the weather gets improved, our body becomes the target of numerous infections and bacteria, and consequently, our immune system weakens as is no longer able to prevent all of them. In this case, you can use antibiotics, but they can cause numerous side-effects, and in some cases, even they cannot fight against some drug-resistant viruses. On the other hand, there is no doubt that the natural remedies are always the best option, as they will cause no side- effects, but will effectively boost the immune system, and restore your health. In numerous cases, natural remedies have been proven to have better effects than antibiotics or other prescription drugs. Today, we are going to reveal one of these natural miracles, that can be 10 times more effective than antibiotics in the case of asthma, persistent cough, sore throat, infections of the respiratory organs, chronic bronchitis and breathing difficulties. What’s more, this natural recipe includes only 3 ingredients that all of you already have in the kitchen. Ingredients: • ½ cup of organic honey. • ¼ cup of organic ACV. • Garlic cloves. • ½ cup of water. Method of preparation: First, crush or chop up the garlic. Then, mix it with all the ingredients, and store the mixture in a jar. It should be left overnight in order to become homogeneous. The next morning, strain the syrup and store it in a dark and cool place. Use: If you are using this remedy to improve your immune system, you should regularly take 5 drops of this miraculous syrup on a daily basis. If you are using it in order to treat a certain health issue, you should take a tablespoon of the syrup every two hours until you feel the improvement. Health benefits. Organic honey is a rich source of vitamins, minerals and enzymes, and it successfully fights against free radicals since it acts as an antioxidant. Moreover, it has strong anti- inflammatory and antibacterial properties which will provide great relief in the case of a cold, cough or a sore throat. On the other hand, apple cider vinegar also contains potent antibacterial and antiviral properties, so it boosts the immune system and aids in the fight against viruses and bacteria. Apple cider vinegar is also rich in trace minerals, enzymes, and bacteria which will improve the health of the entire body. Garlic is another popular natural remedy, which has been used for thousands of years in the case of respiratory issues. Garlic has powerful antiviral and antibacterial properties and stimulates the immune system. Moreover, it can prevent mutation changes in viruses, which is extremely important in the struggle with new and mutated viruses. These powerful properties are due to allicin, a compound it contains and is 10 times more powerful than penicillin. Due to all this, garlic is a real superfood and is extremely helpful in the fight against inflammations and bacteria. Its use significantly promotes health and ensures your wellbeing. =================================== garlic syrup, honey garlic syrup, garlic honey syrup, garlic syrup recipe, garlic and honey syrup, how to make garlic syrup, garlic and honey for sinus, garlic, benefits of garlic, garlic honey, garlic and honey for weight loss, garlic and honey for hair, homeyog, benihana garlic butter, benefits of garlic pills, garlic and honey for high blood pressure, garlic and honey cholesterol, garlic and honey side effects, garlic and honey for cough, how to make garlic and honey Please SUBSCRIBE : http://bit.ly/2e9Su11

The Big Idea: Fighting Superbugs
Antibiotics -- one of the most profound medical breakthroughs of the 20th Century -- don't work as well as they once did. Jean Patel, the director of the CDC's Office of Antibiotic Resistance, said antibiotic resistance has occurred ever since the discovery of antibiotics and that bacteria have become more resistant over time. Video provided by Harvard Medical School perfectly illustrates the problem. Bacteria on both sides of a massive petri dish in effect quickly mutate and spread, overcoming one then 10 then 100 then eventually 1,000 times the antibiotic once able to kill it. The staph infection MRSA, tuberculosis, and even sexually transmitted diseases are becoming resistant to traditional treatment. "We're at a point now where it's really affecting human health and we're not seeing new drugs coming to market to help solve the problem so it's time to take action," Patel said. Dr. Laura Fisher, an internist and infectious disease specialist in New York City, said: "It definitely is worsening." Part of the blame belongs with us. Many patients either fail to finish their entire course of treatment, opening up the door to drug resistance or worse go to their doctor demanding antibiotics for something that isn't even a bacterial infection in the first place. "I think in New York we see it more than elsewhere in the country that people demand a cure," Fisher said. "And sometimes it's the wrong cure they're asking for." Also contributing to the problem: finding newer, more effective drugs remains a challenge; one that there hasn't been sufficient financial incentive for major pharmaceutical companies to aggressively pursue. "And when a new antibiotic comes to market the first thing we want to do is to preserve it, to not use it until it absolutely has to be used to save lives because of resistant infections," CDC's Patel said. "And if we save antibiotics it doesn't allow the company that developed the drug to recoup their investment. So it's hard to encourage pharmaceutical companies to make a drug when it's not going to be widely used, especially at first." But that is hopefully about to change. Kevin Outterson is a Boston University law professor and heading up CARB-X, a brand new state-of-the-art biopharmaceutical accelerator located at B.U. The goal is to make it easier to get more new antibiotic drugs into the pipeline. "If we want to be safe from bacterial threats we need to invest so the companies will have the products available at the moment that we need them," Outterson said. "We hope to have 20 products that are ready for human clinical trials by the end of the five years." And the good news is that while the scientists do their thing we can still play an active role in keeping ourselves safe, too. "We really see the most resistant infections happening in hospitals. And hospitals are really focusing on preventing transmission of infections in those settings," Patel said. "Outside of hospitals, basic hygiene practices can go a long way to preventing infections." So while the war on superbugs is clearly a tough fight, at least the battle is underway. --STEVE LACY

Your Chicken Nuggets Are Ruining Your Antibiotics
Last week, the FDA released a report on the gross amount of antibiotics purchased by the livestock industry in 2012. The results are a bit startling. Between 2009 and 2012—a period of increasing awareness about the perils of antibiotic use in livestock facilities—the FDA found purchases of the drugs rose 16 percent. Over the same period, annual production of beef, chicken, and pork barely budged, suggesting that the industry was becoming more antibiotic-intensive each year. Worse still, the FDA deemed 61 percent of the antibiotics sold to the meat industry in 2012 as "medically important"—meaning that they're commonly used in human medicine, and thus in danger of losing their effectiveness through resistance. Late last year, after decades of foot shuffling, the FDA made its most decisive attempt ever to tamp down the meat industry's habit of dosing livestock with antibiotics to make them grow faster—although being a rather timid watchdog, the FDA chose to make the rules voluntary. "If you talk to a veterinarian, they'll tell you that if drugs are being used in feed, for the most part, they're being used to promote growth or prevent disease, not to treat an animal that's known to be sick." The new report shows just how dire things had become: 70 percent of the "medically important" antimicrobials sold to meat producers in 2012 were destined to be administered through feed, and another 24 percent through water. Just 6 percent were meant to be used topically or through injection—the way small-scale farmers use antibiotics to treat sick animals. "If you talk to a veterinarian, they'll tell you that if drugs are being used in feed, for the most part, they're being used to promote growth or prevent disease, not to treat an animal that's known to be sick," Keeve Nachman, who directs the Food Production and Public Health Program at Johns Hopkins' Center for a Liveable Future, told me. Also, 97 percent of the drugs were sold without a prescription from a veterinarian—a practice that the 2013 rules intend to stop. Even worse, as Keeve Nachman pointed out, sales of cephalosporins, a drug used to treat respiratory-tract infections, skin infections, and urinary-tract infections in people, rose about 4 percent between 2011 and 2012, even though the FDA had moved to scale back their use on January 4, 2012. That doesn't exactly boost confidence. Join #FOWLERNATION!! http://bit.ly/SubscribeFowlerNation Become a Patron! http://Patreon.com/FowlerShow 3 Steps To Join #FowlerNation! 1.

SoapboxScience Toronto : Mother Nature's Living Antibiotic?
Follow me on instagram @scigirlsash https://www.instagram.com/scigirlsash/ One of the worlds smallest organisms can potentially have a huge impact on our health.⠀ ⠀ What is it?⠀ ⠀ You can find about 1️⃣0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ of 'em in 1️⃣ g of soil or a single tablespoon of sea water.⠀ ⠀ Still curious?⠀ ⠀ What I'm talking about is the bacteriophage! Commonly called phage, these microscopic 🔬 organisms (up to you whether you call them an organism, they aren't truly 'living' so..) are one of the most abundant organisms on the planet. The name 'bacteriophage' comes from the literal translation of what they do; 'eat=phage' 'bacterio=bacteria'. So these bacteria-eaters/killers are becoming more and more prevalent in health care. ⠀ ⠀ Why?⠀ ⠀ Bacteriophage are of interest because they can specifically target and kill certain types of bacteria, making them a potentially a better remedy to bacterial infections and illnesses than antibiotics. Annnd don't get me started on antibiotics - like the era in which they were invented , antibiotics (bacteria infections #1 medicine as of rn) are becoming retro📉. ⠀ ⠀ The problem is, alike how we grow and get smarter 🤓 , so do bacteria. So smart that the antibiotics made to kill the bacteria are no longer as effective.(a growing problem recognized by the World Health Organization)... And that's why so many people are becoming interested in phage, the 'alternative to antibiotics.' In fact, phage are used readily in several countries and reports state the first case of successful phage therapy in the US occurred this year!⠀ ⠀ But of course, we still have a lot to learn about phage and hence, why this girl👆 is still working on it! ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Live footage from Toronto's SoapboxScience event held in conjunction with 'Word on the Street' on Sunday Sept 24th.

How the Body Absorbs and Uses Medicine | Merck Manual Consumer Version
Learn more on how the body absorbs and uses medicine: http://www.merckmanuals.com/home/drugs/administration-and-kinetics-of-drugs/drug-absorption How rapidly drugs are absorbed into the body depends on factors such as the speed of the gastrointestinal tract, how acidic it is, and whether the drug is designed to be absorbed slowly (called slow- or sustained-release preparations). Drugs come in tablets, capsules, skin (transdermal) patches, suppositories, and liquids (solutions). Drugs are transformed (metabolized) in the body by enzymes such as those in the liver or kidneys. Drugs that are inactive when taken, but become active after being metabolized, are called pro-drugs. Drugs are eliminated from the body in the urine (for example, if they are soluble in water or after being metabolized) or feces. About The Merck Manuals: First published in 1899 as a small reference book for physicians and pharmacists, The Merck Manual grew in size and scope to become one of the world's most widely used comprehensive medical resources for professionals and consumers. As The Manual evolved, it continually expanded the reach and depth of its offerings to reflect the mission of providing the best medical information to a wide cross-section of users, including medical professionals and students, veterinarians and veterinary students, and consumers. • Merck Manual Consumer Version: http://www.MerckManuals.com/Home • Facebook for Consumers: http://www.Facebook.com/MerckManualHome • Twitter for Consumers: http://www.Twitter.com/MerckManualHome

Comment, like, share this story. Cameron was super excited to turn 18. After all, that was the age where there could be no doubt that he was an adult, no longer a kid. He could vote. He could serve in the armed forces, and he could do all sorts of things that, when he was younger, only the grown-ups could do, and a lot of it didn't real interest him. But, four months after his 18th Birthday, a week before he graduated from high school, he felt the urge to do something nice for himself, to buy himself a late birthday present and something that was like a congratulations for moving onto the next chapter of his life as an adult now! And what was that gift he bought himself, to symbolize his freedom and his new life as a grown-up? A pack of cigarettes. Of course, Cameron knew how bad smoking was for him, knew about the awful consequences - addiction, wasted money, sickness, cancer - but, he was a curious and rebellious teenager, testing his freedom, he decided he would try smoking just once, for the experience. He promised himself that he wouldn't make a habit of it, wouldn't become a smoker. So, he snuck out of his house one night while his family was sleeping, and walked to the nearest gas station that sold cigarettes. He was really nervous about buying them, afraid he would look and sound stupid, and, he did have to show his ID to the clerk - but, finally, he had done it. He had bought his first pack of cigarettes. He couldn't wait to try one - got outside, took on out, lit it up and pulled some smoke into his mouth. It tasted totally bitter and harsh and just plain nasty. Finally, he decided to try to inhale - he pulled the smoke deep into his lungs - and suddenly, his lungs felt like they were collapsing. He was coughing, couldn't stop, and felt like he couldn't breathe. He literally thought he was about to pass out and die. He threw the cigarette on the ground and stomped it out! But, for some reason, he kept the pack of cigarettes with him. And, a few weeks later, he tried smoking again and this time he didn't cough, his lungs didn't hurt as much, and there he was, a little bit excited about it - smoking. He started smoking and before he knew it, had become a smoker. And not a vape user, a vaper, , not vaping or jeweling either, straight up packs of cigs. Cameron thought it would just be a casual habit of his, that he might smoke a cigarette only every once in awhile, but he was wrong. He kept buying packs of cigarettes, smoking them all, quickly, and buying more for the next full year! He made numerous attempts to quit smoking, but he just couldn't - he was feeling unhealthy, addicted, and was starting to run low on money - all because of a few bad choices. The reality is that he simply could not stop smoking. He was desperate to quit smoking but it was so incredibly difficult. Cameron has found that nicotine is one of the hardest addictions to break, and, the best way to do it is to never get started in the first place. He learned anti smoking opinions from first hand experience with smoking; tobacco, cancer, addiction, nicotine, first hand smoke, second hand smoke, vaporizer, the high cost of cigarettes. Peer pressure can be a very healthy thing, take it directly from this story. Smoking is expensive in so many ways. He started smoking, and now he feels like he is in a prison that he created.

Battling antibiotic resistance
Researchers throughout the world are working at a frenetic pace to win the war against antibiotic resistance. Without effective antibiotics or other ways of neutralizing or killing pathogenic bacteria, we face the risk of dying of common infections. Modern medical care, including cancer treatment, transplants and other surgery, is also entirely dependent on the availability of antibiotics that work. Meet some of the people in Sweden on the front line of the battle: Dan Andersson at Uppsala University, who is developing new, faster and more accurate analytical methods; researchers at Umeå University, who are trying to neutralize bacteria in various ways and find new approaches; Felipe Cava, who is studying the cell walls of bacteria; Maria Fällman, who is studying bacterial defense mechanisms; Fredrik Almqvist, Jörgen Johansson and Elisabet Sauer Eriksson, who want to create new molecules to act as homing missiles; and Birgitta Henriques Normark at Karolinska Institutet, who is searching for substances that can be used to develop new antibiotics.

[16] Hillary Clinton taking controversial antibiotic with "Black Box" warning
Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is taking the controversial antibiotic, Levaquin, according to medical information released by her team this week. https://m.hrc.onl/secretary/10-documents/05-physician-letter/HRC_physician_letter.pdf Clinton, who was diagnosed with pneumonia, is on a 10 day supply of Levaquin. Levaquin is the brand name for levofloxacin, which is part of a class of drugs called fluoroquinolones, intended to treat major infections like pneumonia, anthrax exposure, plague and urinary tract infections. Call 6 Investigates has been looking into potential safety issues with the drug, including devastating side effects like tendon rupture, nerve damage and psychiatric problems. In July, the Food and Drug Administration officially approved safety labeling changes for fluoroquinolones including an updated “boxed warning,” also known as a black box warning, which is the FDA’s most serious type of warning mandated by the agency. The warnings advise patients that the serious side effects generally outweigh the benefits for patients with sinus infections, chronic bronchitis, and urinary tract infections, and fluoroquinolones should be used as a last resort. An FDA safety review found the drugs can cause serious, disabling, and potentially permanent side effects involving the tendons, muscles, joints, nerves and central nervous system. Call 6 Investigates reached out to the Clinton campaign, but they have not yet responded, so it’s unclear if Clinton was aware of the new FDA “black box” warnings when she started taking Levaquin. Dr. Charles Bennett, a vocal critic of Levaquin who has not treated Clinton, said her doctors should examine the presidential candidate for possible side effects including muscle weakness. Clinton recently raised concerns when she appeared to struggled to walk while leaving a 9/11 ceremony. “It could be a serious drug reaction,” said Bennett. “The best thing to do is stop the drug, I would suggest, if it’s a potential serious adverse drug reaction. You can use many other antibiotics for pneumonia. I would defer to her physicians there.” Bennett said he is surprised Hillary Clinton was prescribed Levaquin, given the recent label changes and serious side effect concerns. “Our data estimates the FDA receives several thousand reports per year of this toxicity, and several thousand deaths,” said Bennett. “This is equivalent to a 747 plane going down once a month.”
