|The head of the Central Public Health
Laboratory in London recently reported on a new drug-resistant strain of Salmonella
typhrimurium (DT104) which infected 4,000 people last year in Great Britain. While
this strain is not one of the most virulent, it is resistant to 98.8% of all antibiotics.
Salmonella, Staph, E.Coli, and other common pathogens have the ability to pass along to
other strains their drug-resistant genes. As more dangerous salmonella strains adopt the
drug-resistance of this new strain (DT104), the potential for deadly infection is rapidly
increasing. Visit at www.ndrugs.com
Mutant strains of bacteria and
viruses are posing a severe threat to the health of people around the world, not just in
"third-world" countries. Areas of London and New York, for example, have a
higher incidence of Tuberculosis (TB) than many developing countries. To make matters
worse, although TB can usually be treated with about $11 worth of drugs over a six to
eight month period, most patients never complete the program. Not completing the program
strengthens the remaining microbes and has allowed the emergence of drug-resistant forms
of TB. Worldwide, it is estimated that over 50 million people are infected with
drug-resistant strains of the bacteria. Treating drug-resistant TB can cost as much as
$250,000 per patient, but, tragically, most will go untreated, which further strengthens
the drug-resistant strains and the number of people exposed to them.
Drug-resistant strains of Malaria are found in Thailand,
Cambodia, Burma, and Vietnam. Drug-resistant E. Coli is found in Japan, the U.S., and
Korea. The existence of these mutated pathogens, and others, are explained to a large
degree by the overuse and misuse of antibiotics. This is especially true in the wealthier
countries like the U.S., where healthy chickens and cattle are routinely fed antibiotics,
and both children and adults are routinely prescribed antibiotics for the common cold or
flu. Hospitals have become home to several "Super Bugs". Is it a coincidence that
Hospitals routinely prescribe antibiotics for surgery patients, hoping to fend off a
In the healthy intestinal tract, dozens of different
species of bacteria compete for nutrients. The ability of beneficial bacteria to maintain
their positive balance of power over more harmful strains results in proper digestion and
good health. Antibiotic use upsets this balance. Antibiotics destroy both good and bad
bacteria. And it is almost impossible to destroy 100 percent of the pathogenic variety
without long-term exposure to antibiotics, which many patients are unwilling to complete.
Leaving behind even 1 percent or less of the harmful pathogens can have disastrous
effects. Now, without competition, these resistant mutants double in population every few
minutes, causing re-infection with a "Super Strain" of bacteria. In January of
1999, the FDA finally proposed limiting the use of antibiotics in animals and poultry.
Much of the bacterial problem could be corrected by
limiting antibiotic use and introducing beneficial forms of bacteria, yeast, and other
natural, biological agents like garlic, into the system.
In one study, probiotic yeast (Saccharymyces boulardii)
was added to the feed of half of a test group of chickens. All the chickens were then
inoculated with salmonella orally. Salmonella colonization occurred in only 5 percent of
those fed the yeast, compared to 70 percent of those chickens not given the probiotic
yeast. In other studies, garlic extract and powder have produced similar results. NFE® (natural
fruit extract)is also an effective alternative to antibiotics.
There are no known cases of pathogens developing resistance
to Immune Health Beta 1,3/1,6-Glucan NFE® (natural fruit extract),
although different microbes are inhibited (killed) at different concentrations. There are
no known contraindications, nor any known drug interactions with Immune Health Beta
1,3/1,6-Glucan NFE® (natural fruit extract). Immune Health Beta
1,3/1,6-Glucan NFE® (natural fruit extract) does not interfere with
beneficial bacteria at normal dosages.
Military actions, international commerce and
travel, compromised food sources, and antibiotic misuse will no doubt continue to present
new strains of pathogens to the people of the world. The monetary value of symptomatic
relief rather than prevention will no doubt continue to fuel the search for more potent
antibiotics, rather than a focus on prevention. But there is much that individuals can do
to protect themselves and their families and friends. Do not use Beta 1,3/1,6-Glucan with NFE® if you are allergic to citrus
