99,000 people every year die from Hospital Acquired infections. 48,000 of these die from antibiotic resistant infections called MRSA. People who are perfectly healthy, go to the hospital for elective proceedures and instead of getting better, they die of a condition created by going to the hospital.
This problem has been growing over the years despite quarantine proceedures, every stronger antibiotics, and vigorous hand washing.
Now, the news is filled with reports of resistant superbugs killing people who have never been to a hospital. Clearly, a different approach is needed.
The old theory is that a perfectly healthy person enters the hospital, is infected with a super-bug and dies. This theory is seriously flawed for 2 reasons. First, it does not explain the emergence of resistant organisms in people who have never been to the hospital. Second, implementation of procedures based on this theory have not led to the control or eradication of MRSA.
What they do not want you to know is that the hospital visit is only the last step in a deadly chain of events that lead to death from MRSA.
The first step is having Staph on you skin or in your body. This is actually normal and more than half of the population has this. The next step is to expose these normal bacteria to antibiotics over a period of time. Preferably weeks. Staph that are sensitive to antibiotics then convert to resistant bacteria and become MRSA – a deadly superbug. This is still a harmless condition as MRSA only cause problems when they get into your body through a break in the skin such as an IV line that is placed in the hospital to give you fluids or medicines through your vien.
The only way to eradicate MRSA is to allow it to leave the body via more frequent bowel movements and to refuse antibiotics as the solution or prevention of any condition.
