|Even Zordon thinks you are a dick!|
Everyone’s Favourite Quack Mike Adams (The Health Ranger) has come out on the E.Coli outbreak in Germany and Sweden by claiming that the E. Coli was bio-engineered to cause human fatalities. In true idiot fashion he comes up with the wild theory that we have invented the world’s stupidest super weapon possibly in order to kill of all the salad eaters.
“Even as the veggie blame game is now under way across the EU, where a super resistant strain of e.coli is sickening patients and filling hospitals in Germany, virtually no one is talking about how e.coli could have magically become resistant to eight different classes of antibiotic drugs and then suddenly appeared in the food supply”
The E.Coli is not resistant as much as you think (A lot of the resistances are via a specific mechanism.) Filling hospitals? Roughly 500 have been infected. It’s not “filling hospitals”. Infact it is indicative of how fast medicine has responded.
And the fault lies in uncooked vegetables. A batch of vegetables has been contaminated and people who eat them raw are getting sick. Infact the people most at risk are fresh food vegans and salad munchers. E.Coli normally infects via uncooked meat but it can spread like this. There is no blame game. People want to trace the source of the infection and stop it. There is no point treating people but having more people get sick.
“This particular e.coli variation is a member of the O104 strain, and O104 strains are almost never (normally) resistant to antibiotics. In order for them to acquire this resistance,they must be repeatedly exposed to antibiotics in order to provide the “mutation pressure” that nudges them toward complete drug immunity”
No, this is not how it works. Antibiotic immunity in E.Coli can be transferred from bacteria within different strains of E.Coli via the bacterial conjugation and the F-Plasmid. This allows complex multiple resistances to be cobbled together in bacteria like E.Coli. Mike is plain old bullshitting here. This is more likely to be a case of the bacteria inheriting it’s resistances from a commensal E.Coli which possessed these resistances.
“When scientists at Germany’s Robert Koch Institute decoded the genetic makeup of the O104 strain, they found it to be resistant to all the following classes and combinations of antibiotics:
• nalidixic acid
• amoxicillin / clavulanic acid
In addition, this O104 strain posses an ability to produce special enzymes that give it what might be called “bacteria superpowers” known technically as ESBLs”
|The ducks are correct this time!|
Bacteria Superpowers? Hey Adams! I am calling you out now. You are a quack for the following reason.
ESBL stands for Extended Spectrum Beta-Lactamase, it is a enzyme produced by bacteria that denature Beta-lactam drugs which work by the use of a chemical complex called the Beta-lactam Ring. This enzyme merely digests the ring preventing the drug from working. Most of the drugs on that list work by this mechanism. Tetracycline, Nalidixic Acid and Trimeth-Sulfameth is not used in E.Coli Treatment.
Stop using terms such as bacterial superpowers, you are scaremongering and causing people to actually listen to your stupid advice. And your advice is dangerous because people won’t go seek treatment for Haemolytic Uremic Disease and die if they listen to it.
“On top of that, this O104 strain possesses two genes –TEM-1 and CTX-M-15- that “have been making doctors shudder since the 1990s,” reports The Guardian(http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentis…). And why do they make doctors shudder? Because they’re so deadly that many people infected with such bacteria experience critical organ failure and simply die”
No one simply dies. There are reasons for it. TEM-1 and CTX-M-15 are the genes that code for the above Beta-lactamase based resistance. Not something different. Beta-Lactamase resistance is based of these genes which causes the antibiotic resistance. Not these things are antibiotic resistant, have beta lactamase resistace and carry these deadly genes! Now panic and run around like headless chickens.
And it has to do with a completely different organism called Klebsiella.
So how, exactly, does a bacterial strain come into existence that’s resistant to over a dozen antibiotics in eight different drug classes and features two deadly gene mutations plus ESBL enzyme capabilities?
How indeed Mr. Health Ranger. How indeed…
There’s really only one way this happens (and only one way) — you have to expose this strain of e.coli to all eight classes of antibiotics drugs. Usually this isn’t done at the same time, of course: You first expose it to penicillin and find the surviving colonies which are resistant to penicillin. You then take those surviving colonies and expose them to tetracycline. The surviving colonies are now resistant to both penicillin and tetracycline. You then expose them to a sulfa drug and collect the surviving colonies from that, and so on. It is a process of genetic selection done in a laboratory with a desired outcome. This is essentially how some bioweapons are engineered by the U.S. Army in its laboratory facility in Ft. Detrick, Maryland
Mike is essentially and fundamentally wrong.
|This is how stupid I think this plan is.|
ESBL resistance covers a good 5 out of 8 drugs. The others are common enough in normal usage to be acquired as course of treatment over other drugs. And that is how you make a bio-weapon if you are a fucking moron. Seriously you have to be a comic book villain to think that is a sensible plan. A genetic engineer would just take the DNA strand from a resistant bacteria and put it into E.Coli creating this. This would take a few weeks. Also why? This is the stupidest idea on earth. You would have to be mad to think this is a great idea because Bio Weapons are uncontrollable. You can point a nuclear weapon at a city and kill the city. Your bio-weapon shows no distinction between you and your enemy and will quite likely kill you just as easily.
It is the reason why everyone said “No! Bioweapons are insane and should never be used, back in the box with you.”.
Although the actual process is more complicated than this, the upshot is that creating a strain of e.coli that’s resistant to eight classes of antibiotics requires repeated, sustained expose to those antibiotics. It is virtually impossible to imagine how this could happen all by itself in the natural world. For example, if this bacteria originated in the food (as we’ve been told), then where did it acquire all this antibiotic resistance given the fact that antibiotics are not used in vegetables?
Or you know it’s occurred in humans where E.Coli is a common pathogen and commensal (naturally occurring bacteria that live inside us) and has transferred onto our food. Possibly because some dick didn’t wash his hands using the bathroom. Or considering mixed agriculture, someone who didn’t wash his hands between touching cows and vegetables.
It’s not a proper lab without skeletons
“When considering the genetic evidence that now confronts us, it is difficult to imagine how this could happen “in the wild.” While resistance to a single antibiotic is common, the creation of a strain of e.coli that’s resistant to eight different classes of antibiotics – in combination — simply defies the laws ofgenetic permutation and combination in the wild. Simply put, this superbug e.coli strain could not have been created in the wild. And that leaves only one explanation for where it really came from: the lab“
|Oh yes! I do love comic books!|
“The evidence now points to this deadly strain of e.coli being engineered and then either being released into the food supply or somehow escaping from a lab and entering the food supply inadvertently. If you disagree with that conclusion — and you’re certainly welcome to — then you are forced to conclude that this octobiotic superbug (immune to eight classes of antibiotics) developed randomly on its own… and that conclusion is far scarier than the “bioengineered” explanation because it means octobiotic superbugs can simply appear anywhere at any time without cause. That would be quite an exotic theory indeed.”
But declaring that we genetically engineered a bacteria using the stupidest science to kill 20 people is a sane theory? I must have fallen into a portal and woken up on Bizzaro Earth.
My conclusion actually makes more sense: This strain of e.coli was almost certainly engineered and then released into the food supply for a specific purpose. What would that purpose be? It’s obvious, I hope.
It’s all problem, reaction, solution at work here. First cause a PROBLEM (a deadly strain of e.coli in the food supply). Then wait for the public REACTION (huge outcry as the population is terrorized by e.coli). In response to that, enact your desired SOLUTION (total control over the global food supply and the outlawing of raw sprouts, raw milk and raw vegetables).
That’s what this is all about, of course. The FDA relied on the same phenomenon in the USA when pushing for its recent “Food Safety Modernization Act” which essentially outlaws small family organic farms unless they lick the boots of FDA regulators. The FDA was able to crush farm freedom in America by piggybacking on the widespread fear that followed e.coli outbreaks in the U.S. food supply. When people are afraid, remember, it’s not difficult to get them to agree to almost any level of regulatory tyranny. And making people afraid of their food is a simple matter… a few government press releases emailed to the mainstream media news affiliates is all it takes
Wait. We are doing this to take control of something we already have? To improve food safety? Are these retards seriously wanting to drink unpasteurised milk? Something that we decided spreads too many pathogens so we swapped to pasteurised milk? On
e of the greatest discoveries in public health? The diseases you can catch include pathogens such as salmonella, campylobacter, brucellosis, yersinia (plague), listeria, staphylococcus, enterotoxin poisoning (this outbreak), streptococcus, tuberculosis and E.coli. We save countless lives across the world by pasteurising milk.
Now, remember: All this is happening on the heels of the EU ban on medicinal herbs and nutritional supplements – a ban that blatantly outlaws nutritional therapies that help keep people healthy and free from disease. Now that all these herbs and supplements are outlawed, the next step is to make people afraid of fresh food, too. That’s because fresh vegetables are medicinal, and as long as the public has the right to buy fresh vegetables, they can always prevent disease.
The EU ban is on unlicensed practitioners of herbal medicine and nutritional supplements giving out medication thus forcing alt. medicine to fulfil the same rigorous standards as Real Medicine. You know, like test drugs and provide data on usage.
And as a medical student, I will honestly state that I want my patients to eat fresh vegetables either after proper cleaning OR cooking. What Mike is trying to imply is we will ban vegetables. Because we are the fucking hamburglar!
Fresh Vegetables are not medicinal. They just are required for a healthy diet and in balance with meat. No one is saying to not eat fresh vegetables. What people are saying is to take precautions and cook your food. Any doctor saying that you shouldn’t eat vegetables is a quack as bad as Mike here. Mike however is in his own league of idiocy because of the constant stream of nonsense that comes out of his mouth.
GMOs play a similar role in all this, of course: They’re designed to contaminate the food supply with genetic code that causes widespread infertilityamong human beings. And those who are somehow able to reproduce after exposure to GMOs still suffer from degenerative disease that enriches the drug companies from “treatment.”
I think you need to loosen that tin foil hat, it’s cutting off circulation there! Mike goes on to say that Spain’s accusation is due to some bizarre rejection of GMO that we sought revenge for in our insanely convoluted super plan.
But obviously the culprits cannot get away with this!
By the way, the most likely explanation of where this strain of e.coli was bioengineered is that the drug giants came up with it in their own labs. Who else has access to all the antibiotics and equipment needed to manage the targeted mutations of potentially thousands of e.coli colonies? The drug companies are uniquely positioned to both carry out this plot and profit from it. In other words, they have the means and the motive to engage in precisely such actions.
Aside from the drug companies, perhaps only the infectious disease regulators themselves have this kind of laboratory capacity. The CDC, for example, could probably pull this off if they really wanted to.
So drug companies murdered 20 people to sell a drug that they are already selling to around 500 infected people after spending MILLIONS in developing a new super weapon E.Coli that is defeated by cooking food in a way to get people to not eat vegetables.
And the CDC (Centre for Disease Control) in the USA is possibly involved in releasing such a disease in Germany…
That’s fucking moronic. No really. This is a great way to make a titanic loss and get charged with murder! This is so stupid that if anyone tries this plan they would be laughed at for trying to run the world’s stupidest scam.
But in either case — no matter what you believe — the simple truth is that the world is now facing a new era of global superbug strains of bacteria that can’t be treated with any known pharmaceutical. They can all, of course, be readily killed with colloidal silver, which is exactly why the FDA and world health regulators have viciously attacked colloidal silver companies all these years: They can’t have the public getting its hands on natural antibiotics that really work, you see. That would defeat the whole purpose of making everybody sick in the first place.
This disease? It can be treated. Untreated Haemolytic Uraemic Syndrome has a insanely high mortality rate of more than 50%. Out of 500 HUS positive patients only 20 have died. That is medicine. You cannot save everyone, but you can make sure more people get to live. One day it will be 10 and the next 5 and eventually it will be 1.
In fact, these strains of e.coli superbugs can be quite readily treated with a combination of natural full-spectrum antibiotics from plants such as garlic, ginger, onions and medicinal herbs. On top of that, probiotics can help balance the flora of the digestive tract and “crowd out” the deadly e.coli that might happen by. A healthy immune system and well-functioning digestive tract can fight off an e.coli superbug infection, but that’s yet another fact the medical community doesn’t want you to know. They much prefer you to remain a helpless victim lying in the hospital, waiting to die, with no options available to you. That’s “modern medicine” for ya. They cause the problems that they claim to treat, and then they won’t even treat you with anything that works in the first place.
Garlic, Ginger, Onions and Medicinal Herbs(tm) won’t work. It would be like throwing water balloons at a tank. We can ACTUALLY test this out. Indians get a lot of E.Coli poisoning despite eating vast quantities of ginger, garlic and onions and coriander and turmeric (both said to be antibiotic in nature). Infact Indians get it more than we do in the west simply because food isn’t prepared hygienically. Probiotics work by competitively inhibiting the E.Coli however an E.Coli infection indicates that E.Coli has won this fight. The problem is that E.Coli is a naturally occurring human bacteria so it is pretty much designed to live in your stomach. The problem is some produce various toxins that go on to wreck your stuff. Which is why E.Coli outbreaks are so fast and effective.
Yes. We like you to die. This is why in the West where we have a complete medical coverage our infant mortality is just 4/1000 live births (Mostly due to premature births which are being cut down upon with the use of cheap progesterone now) and our life expectancy is close to the 75. Unlike those places without any medical coverage where 120/1000 children die in the first year of life and people die at 40.
|And I would have gotten away with it
if it wasn’t for your nat
Nearly all the deaths now attributable to this e.coli outbreak are easily and readily avoidable. These are deaths of ignorance. But even more, they may also be deaths from a new era of food-based bioweapons unleashed by either a group of mad scientists or an agenda-driven institution that has declared war on the human population
1. Wash Your Goddamn Hands Before Touching Food
2. Wash Your Goddamn Hands After Going to the Toilet
3. Cook your Food Properly. Especially Meat.
4. Wash your Vegetables. Clean Them and Cook Them As Well. Use a steamer if you fear leaching
5. Store your fruit and vegetables in a clean fridge.
6. Ensure the food supply of your vegetables is clean.
7. Do not pressure doctors to give antibiotics for small diseases
8. Doctors should treat E.Coli GIT infections with ORS rather than antibiotics relying on them as a last measure.
The deaths are not of ignorance. They occurred to people who simply were unlucky and were probably most likely to be caused by someone who didn’t wash their hands properly. A simple yet this time deadly mistake.
It is not some mystical secret society running a lunatic scheme. Mike Adams you are an epic level douchebag who is using death to scare people into not using modern medication instead claiming herbals would solve this problem when they blatantly do not. He is irresponsible in giving out medical advice to people while having no idea about the actual field. He is a quack and a charlatan.
