The NDM-1 Super Bug: Is It a Real Threat?

Last year the so-called novel H1N1 virus, an obviously lab created pathogen, was used to panic the public and push a dangerous vaccine.

The response from the public was an encouraging one. They refused to be bullied into vaccination and, as a result, the great quantities of vaccine bought to administer to the public went unused.

Now a warning of what is being called a super ‘bug’ comes from the UK. What will be the result of this situation? The reports so far describe it in such language as to immediately cause concern.

The threat by name is called the “New Delhi-Metallo-1” enzyme, and sources are stressing the fact that it is a condition by which bacteria are becoming resistant to the most powerful antibiotics.

It is described as a potential “nightmare” scenario in which all known drugs could be useless in the near future to combat infectious bacterial disease.

What are the real risks of this new health threat? Does the world face yet another vaccination scam such as the one attempted with H1N1? Will there be epidemics of incurable diseases spreading around the world soon?

These are the worries which might plague people should this situation continue to develop, and become a major subject of mainstream news.

Before any speculation takes place and any conclusions are rushed in to, we should first rationally answer these questions.

What the New Delhi-Metallo-1 or ND Metallo-beta-lactamase is exactly, is a gene which promotes the production of an enzyme, called a carbapenemase, which is a Beta-lactamase enzyme which resists certain antibiotics, called carbapenems – these are some of the most potent antibiotics which are used.

This new “super bug” is not actually a bacteria in itself, but an ability in a bacteria to produce this Beta-lactamase enzyme.

The gene is capable of being transmitted from one strain of bacteria to another.

Currently NDM-1 has been found in Enterobacteriaceae such as E. Coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae in between 37 and 50 cases in the UK depending on the source.

These patients were said to have brought the enzyme gene from Asia, where they had received cosmetic surgery or cancer treatments. The origin of the NDM-1 is said to be Pakistan or India.

The resistance to the carbapenem antibiotics is caused due to the ability of the beta-lactamase to break apart the specific molecular structure of carbapenems – a four-atom ring called a beta-lactam.

The idea which has caused so much supposed concern by medical officials, is that this enzyme will be integrated into very virulent bacterial strains, which are already resistant to lesser types of antibiotics – and so there would be no currently available drug to combat them.

The result, they would say, is potentially that highly dangerous diseases would be incurable and many people would die.

The real risk to people depends on the individual.

For those who rely on the mainstream medical system when they are ill, who turn to antibiotics as a cure, there is potential serious risk.

The enzyme has passed it would seem exclusively in hospitals, and if the cure which you count on is antibiotics, and you have contracted a strain of bacteria with NDM-1, you are likely to get no help from that trusted source.

For those who do not turn to mainstream medicine and do not take antibiotics, though, there is no ‘super bug’.

The resistance of the diseases depend simply upon their resistance to antibiotics, they are not super-resistant to natural means of prevention and cure, nor are the diseases themselves more deadly if they run their course because of the addition of NDM-1.

If you wish to ensure that you are more safe from this supposed threat than the average person, practice common sense, natural medicine.

Will we see a new vaccine campaign? This is very unlikely, unless the vaccine is simply offered to the public as a placebo to general ignorance.

Since the problem is a gene, which can inhabit a multitude of bacterial strains, either a vaccine would have to cover a very broad range of bacteria or it would be pointless.

Though vaccines are essentially pointless and always dangerous anyway, it might require a level of ignorance in the public which is hard to imagine in order to successfully sell a vaccine for NDM-1 bacterial diseases.

It is highly unlikely, also, that there will be any real threat of pandemic because of NDM-1.

Even now in an age when people trust the medical arts so completely, and the natural immunity of people is much lower than it should be, most pathogens are fought off naturally without any visit to the doctor and oftentimes without even symptoms.

Those who might be seriously at risk are those who have very compromised immune systems, and who are not equip with the knowledge of how to treat themselves with natural remedies.

The one real concern which can come of all of this is the intentional over-reaction of health authorities and governments, fueled even more by intentionally induced public panic.

“Dr. Livermore’s fears are well founded and this scenario is similar to many frightening science fiction medical horror movies… But it’s real and it could wipe out a large portion of the Earth’s population if left unattended. Hopefully all the cases have been found out and all those infected be placed in quarantine.” news.gather.com

Even at this early point in the development of this news come statements of ‘containment’ and ‘quarantine’.

“A combination of new drugs are now sought to kill the super bug in the reported 50 UK cases. Doctors say the only way to end NDM-1 from spreading is to quarantined those showing signs of infection immediately.”

“Speaking about the potential for NDM-1 to go global, UK’s Health Protection Agency (HPA) researcher Dr David Livermore said, “The fear would be that [the super bug gene] gets into a strain of bacteria that is very good at being transmitted between patients.”

It is my hope that this does not grow into an opportunity for governments to impose oppressive conditions on their citizens.

It is nevertheless a good time to learn how to live without doctors.

Global Enchantment : Dazed & Confused

Posted in 09 : Global Enchantment with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 04/17/2010 by timenolonger

There is an alarming phenomenon taking place that i can see accelerating by the day. It’s rather like being trapped in some terrible B movie…Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Where once a person might talk to the average stranger on the street and strike up a meaningful conversation and there were those little normal response indicators in tone and body language and the eyes as to how a person was receiving the things said to them…

Now more often people tend to stare in blank, dazed surprise to find themselves spoken to at all and respond in a strange, detached robotic manner as if they are running a response program of selected scripts… but just like an automated answering service, if you happen to interject something which has no pre-programmed response you receive a weird sort of error message written on a face that almost flashes the message “does not compute”.

Another alarming symptom i notice is an abominable, increasing lack of ability to write or speak in more or less correct and understandable English. I’m no obsessive compulsive grammar nut..nor do i begrudge anyone the occasional typographical error (being a pot, i wouldn’t call that kettle black), but when i notice that even journalists, writing professionally for news sources can not spell or use at least moderately good grammar..i have to wonder would these people have managed to keep their jobs in that field 30 years ago?

The statistics on this would indicate that even people of an older generation who have used good spelling and grammar and punctuation throughout most of their lives, suddenly have become more inept at it.. as if they have lost some basic knowledge that they once had. Chalk it up to a snotty attitude perhaps.. but i refuse to relate to typed expressions like “wht r u dng?” and “sup?”

I recently listened to a comment by a Georgia congressman who stated he was very concerned about overpopulation, particularly the overpopulation of Islands like Guam. He believes there is a chance that if too many more people reside there, the island will tip over…capsize… because..islands float on the water?? Are we really living in an age where there are adults..and elected officials no less, who believe that islands float on the water and can possibly tip? What happened here?

Why are people losing their cognition? One could certainly point to the fact that the activities of a normal day include television, video games and ipods instead of hunting for dinner, raising farm animals and growing ones own food and medicine. The things people fill their days with now do not require thought or skill aside from how fast they can move their thumbs and as we all know..use it or lose it.

There is more to it though, it’s not just a pervasive lack of common skills and mental exercise, nor can it be said to be a poor educational system to blame for it entirely (though that certainly doesn’t help). There is something amiss with the population’s innate potential to comprehend and retain information. It would seem to figure by reasonable conclusion that the enormity of this problem points to some wanting it to be so..

“A great deal of intelligence can be invested in ignorance when the need for illusion is deep.”
—Saul Bellow, To Jerusalem and Back, 1976

Let’s take a look at what humanity is exposed to in this generation, from cradle to grave….

Parents are recommended to have their child vaccinated with up to 24 injections by age two…most if not all of which contain mercury, adjuvants, live viruses, genetic material from various animals and a cocktail of toxic additives such as formaldehyde. The result is damage to the immune system and by extension, the brain..in worst case scenarios the onset of autism occurs.

Food that people consume on a daily basis contains a wide range of incredibly poisonous substances that are chemicals…Not Food… you would never eat these things if they came in a bottle with a skull and cross bones on them..but eating them as ingredients to food is so commonplace that people literally don’t care what they are. Even if you do care..best wishes to you in your attempt to eliminate them from your diet as the food supply is saturated with them and organic eating can get expensive (though more than worth it if you can manage it).

Some more obvious examples are MSG, EDTA, Aspartame, artificial colors and flavors, and Aluminum Ammonium sulfate….some more sneaky ingredients are Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Enzyme Modified Soy Protein, and Hydrogenated Oils. The result of a life of eating these ingredients predisposes one to a multitude of diseases, immune dysfunction and eventually early onset senile dementia.

Most people no longer have the luxury of owning their own water well from which they can draw untreated, natural ground water with all it’s vital trace minerals. Now for the most part, people drink from municipal water supplies from treatment plants which regularly add chemicals such as Fluoride ( known to have been useful to Hitler in Nazi Germany for making the masses docile), Chlorine, Arsenic, Mercury, Lead… all in all..a whopping 60,000 toxic additives are used at various treatment plants world wide…many of which cause a wide range of inhibited brain function and psychosis.

We all hear a lot about air pollution these days..but most of what we hear about is geared toward demonizing every day life..the so-called “carbon footprint”. Incredibly enough, some would have you believe that CO2 is a dangerous gas…the very stuff humans and other creatures exhale. In reality CO2 is not dangerous and is actually very necessary to the ongoing survival of the planet as plants require it for their respiration.

What is horrifically dangerous is going on over your head probably on a greater than weekly basis, depending upon your location. The next time you look overhead and notice the sky criss-crossed with white trails, don’t be fooled, those aren’t commercial aircraft. The long-lasting white trails which will streak the sky on certain days with grid patters are released by high altitude planes that you can witness for yourself.

They are intentionally spraying poisons into your atmosphere. The contents of the trails vary but the most common components are Barium Salts, Aluminum Oxide, Depleted Uranium and, bizarrely enough, red blood cells.As you are probably already aware…heavy metal toxicity is extremely damaging to the brain, and aluminum in particular destroys memory retention.

Here’s one that is good at making enemies..since this is a society with a long held tradition of elevating the medical arts and their importance in everyday life to the status of a divine gift, it is hard to make friends pointing out the true nature of this greatly esteemed practice of pharmaceutical love.

The best place to make yourself aware of what it is is in scripture.. have a look at the word “sorceries” used in the book of revelation and then follow that to the Greek word it came from. You will find Pharmekeia..the definition of which is the use of drugs,,after that, magic. Don’t be too fast to define what a “drug” might be..we can’t add to this definition the implication of “illegal” drugs or abuse of drugs…obviously modern drug laws hold no affect to what terms in scripture mean…nor can one use something condemned by the Almighty without abusing it. We can’t fornicate just a little and expect that to be ok.

The root of the Greek word came from a “deity” in the minor Greek pantheon called Pharmaros, which is in turn a Greek corruption of the name Armoni…which was one of the 200 fallen Watchers stated to have been a master in the arts of medical remedies. Not only is there a moral consequence to drug use but there is a physical one, as there is not a single drug made by man which will not cause more harm than help eventually.

The worst of these drugs are psych medication which are particularly damaging to the nervous system, addictive and cause more psychosis than they prevent. The FDA admitted to having the goal of seeing over 70 % of all children on psychiatric medication in the coming years.

This world is under a spell…to some degree it is one imposed on them unbeknownst to them..but to a large degree it is, now, after years of multi-generational programming and covert poisoning, a matter of apathy which keeps people unconcerned enough to not search out the truth and act on it. A lazy will and an untrained mind leaves the door open for the emotional abuse of the devil. A mind unable to assert itself against the programming of the system becomes a willing slave…and of course a prime target of “Strong Delusion”.

“Pause and wonder! Blind yourselves and be blind! They are drunk, but not with wine. They stagger, but not with intoxicating drink.”
– Isaiah 29:9
