Research Science Dilemma For Medical Community Bacteria Mutation to Vaccines and Antibiotics

Ah Choo! Disease is "Nothing" to Sneeze At

Contagious disease spreads through the air that we all breath. Can we stop it with antibiotics and vaccines?
Contagious disease spreads through the air that we all breath. Can we stop it with antibiotics and vaccines?

OPINION PIECE

The problem with the medical system over the past decades centers around the philosophy and theory of fighting disease. The harder you push against nature, the more evolutionary pressure you put on their survival mechanisms forcing them to rapidly respond by mutating into new forms. These virulent forms were in essence predicted by Darwin's theory of natural selection, which states, "survival of the fittest and adaptation to environmental pressure."

On the other hand, humans have been evolving weaker strains, as we reduce our immune response to outside natural forces ie. pathogens. In fact, the germ theory, which pits humans against pathogens does not take into consideration our greatest strengths and qualities to survive and overcome disease. We have the power and intelligence to utilize nature's bounty through homeopathic remedies, herbal applications, rest, sunshine, exercise, deep breathing, and many other modes of healing. The wisdom of the ages rests in our resource libraries.

Unfortunately, the all mighty dollar has contributed to the demise of the human species to resist disease. The upscaling of drugs, antibiotics, and development of new vaccines containing harmful toxins to human existence only weakens the human race.

Take a look at the analysis of how just one single strain of streptococcus pneumonia bacteria has transmuted over thirty years. This strain scattered across the globe has caused undue deaths to persons with weakened respiratory function and susceptible to lung infection.

Researchers who study the evolution of DNA will find they can never catch up to the speed at which bacteria and viruses can change to accommodate the barriers to their spread in the environment. Thus, we are fighting a losing battle.

The only way to win is to shake hands (literally, that is how contagious disease is spread), with the pathogens in our environment, acknowledge their existence for good, and find a way to co-exist. Put down your arms! Let us surrender and have peace. Is this not the watchword of our shifting consciousness?

Live in harmony with the earth. Use homeopathy which utilizes the power of the 'similimum' of 'likes cures likes' rather than constantly fighting 'against' with every 'anti' agent possible. The more you put down another, the harder they rise up again.

When will our greatest minds come together and admit it is time to turn around and take a new path to healing the earth and all life. All epidemiologists have recognized these facts for decades. This relentless race, trying to keep one step of the microbial world will not move us forward in "OUR" evolution!

The small voice of homeopaths will now be heard. You can hear the rumblings everywhere around the internet.

Response To Sleight of DNA [HAND]

With Sleight of DNA, Pneumonia Bacterium Dodges Vaccines by SINDYA N. BHANOO

Researchers from seven countries have collaborated to analyze how a single strain of Streptococcus pneumoniae bacteria has morphed over 30 years and spread across the world, in an attempt to overcome the development of antibiotics and vaccines.

  • This sleight of hand, as if tricked by bacteria, has been under wraps only to push the agenda to develop drugs [with active ingredients, instead of nature's whole synergistic substances] to sell to populations. 
  • The germs, bacteria, and viruses will always dodge the bullet, injection, pill over the course of time as they are much smarter and quicker to respond. It takes humans generations to change their DNA. It takes the disease pathogens a cell division. Who wins?

I appreciate that this is an opinion piece, and there are certainly some accurate claims about the inadvisability of over-utilization of drug therapy. Still, over doing it somewhat is a far cry from total abstinence and a reliance on the body's natural abilities to heal.

I simply leave it to the readers to investigate morbidity tables pre-penicillin and post-penicillin to determine whether drug use is more beneficial than self-prescibed homeopathic solutions.


AKA Winston 5 years ago

I hope you don't mind me also posting this small quote about penicillin - in order to have valid comparisons one must have valid data to compare.

"It is hard for our modern generation to fully appreciate that before penicillin, even an infected pinprick or a tiny cut might be lethal. Hospitals were full of people with easily caught infections raging out of control. Children died regularly from scarlet fever, from infections of the bones, throat, stomach, or brain. It is no exaggeration to say that many of you reading this article would not be here today if it weren’t for the miracle of antibiotics touching you and your extended family."

My opinion is that drug-resistance and mutation is a problem to be solved in order to keep medicine viable, not a boogeyman in the nighttime closet to hide from and fear.

Thanks for allowing dissenting opinion. Cheers!

This is a highly complicated scientific article, one that I can honestly say I don't fully understand. However I do understand what you mean by overuse of established medication. I also concur with the promotion of alternative medicines, especially homeopathy. Very in depth research Debby, keep up the good work.

Now shoot me down in flames, but penicillin is a naturally occurring life form which was harnessed in the fight against infection. Am I being too simplistic? Am I right, or do I need to Wikipedia it?

Hello Dear Twilight Lawns. The problem is the overuse and manufacture of varieties of synthetic and complicated pharmaceuticals that are not exactly natural. The other problem concerns not only frequency of application (for non-bacterial infections) but the quantity of these drugs.

These "ANTI" biotics work on the opposite principle of "HOMEO" pathy which means that these micro doses enable the body to fend for itself and heal without side-effects. The strong antibiotics wipe out the entire microbiotics of the organism, which are necessary for life. Uh. That's a side effect that needs repair and then an onslaught of more and more drugs.

I agree, Debby. I was just trying to counter the very negative response of AKA Winston. I can see his point, but I was attempting to come down on the side of moderation.

I know that when I have been on antibiotics; at the end of the course, although the medication may has removed the infection, I am adversely affected.

I can remember clearly that I was teaching and had had ‘flu’ and been on antibiotics to remove the infection that I had sustained as a result of the virus. I had important lesson and class preparation that was due, and my very understanding head teacher allowed me to put off the lesson plans etc, because she knew me well and how my body reacted to antibiotics. A very understanding and farsighted, and wonderful person to work for because of her keen observation of her staff and pupils.


AKA Winston 5 years ago

Twilight Lawns,

Can you point out how my comments were "negative"?

A bit of information: antivirals are used to treat viruses. Antibiotics are useful against bacterial infections.

Neither class of drug is without side effects, and both are over-used and over-prescribed.

You are correct that penicillin is a naturally ocurring mold.

The basis of medicinal cures is the answer to the question of whether the positive results of treatment outweigh the negative effects.

There is no doubt we have gone way too far in prescribing and utilization of drug therapy, including antibiotics and antivirals.

That does not argue for total abandonment of useful treatments, though, and any quick look at the survival rate for victims of infectious diseases pre-world war II and post-war war II shows that it is the pathogens, not the cures, that are the enemy.

Dear Twilight ~ Thanks for you personal story about the side effects of a course of antibiotics. Most often, when women take antibiotics for respiratory or urinary tract infections, the unfortunate side-effect results in a fungal infection.

Dear AKA. Thanks for your contribution. The point that I was making is the over use of antibiotics for so many sicknesses; and the prescribing of antibiotics to young children with viral infections, even though they will do no good for their disease. Typically, this is given as a 'prophylactic' to prevent the onset of a secondary infection.

My comment indicated that antibiotics and antivirals should be used sparingly as a backup after all other natural means have been tried.

I think we are losing the war to mutant bacteria and other kinds of diseases. Always there is some new strnd of flue that crops up that causes thousands upon thousands of deaths world wide.

The recent influenza pandemic was hyped with fear globally via WHO, gov't and BigPharma. The strains will continue to mutate. The mortality rate will vary. I pray that we strengthen our immune systems with Vitamin D and all the other means at our disposal that are coming to light. Thanks for your thoughts Juneaukid.


AKA Winston 5 years ago

The reservoir for influenza is primarily waterfowl, which is why areas of the world that have lax standards for live markets in ducks, geese, etc. tend to be the base territory for the newest strain of flu.

Quite interesting, AKA. Its a true shame the way animals are bred for food today. If we treated animals more humanly and not crowd them into tiny spaces which breed disease we would all be better off.

Quoting from your link: "Because all known influenza A subtypes exist in the aquatic bird reservoir, influenza is not an eradicable disease; prevention and control are the only realistic goals. If people, pigs, and aquatic birds are the principal variables associated with interspecies transfer of influenza virus and the emergence of new human pandemic strains, influenza surveillance in these species is indicated.

Live-bird markets housing a wide variety of avian species together (chickens, ducks, geese, pigeon, turkeys, pheasants, guinea fowl), occasionally with pigs, for sale directly to the public provide outstanding conditions for genetic mixing and spreading of influenza viruses; therefore, these birds should be monitored for influenza viruses. Moreover, if pigs are the mixing vessel for influenza viruses, surveillance in this population may also provide an early warning system for humans"

There are a number of "ifs" and assumptions that begin the article. The whole point of this article says that we cannot eradicate the mutating bacteria no matter what we do. The CDC response is control and prevention of the spread of disease. The best method for that is sanitation, isolation on outbreak and building up the human immune system. It appears surveillance of changing strains is underway. It also appears that we must keep our waterways clean, rather than dumping all sorts of sludge, chemicals, toxins and wastes to deteriorate the ecosystem. Tainted waterways become a breeding ground for further noxious inhabitants.

Don't forget "Older people are more likely [than younger people] to have experienced H1N1 viruses in the past [which means they have built up stronger immunity]." [Why Should We Worry about Swine Flu? http://bit.ly/BFvcB Scientific America]

A number of countries carried out mass killings of all foul and pigs during some previous epidemics. The USDA won't be doing that in the US. Egypt Slaughtered All Pigs To Prevent Outbreak http://huff.to/gGldNZ Seems quite tragic and not very sane action.

I agree with their assament that each of us who isn't an invester or owner is a slave. It sort of fits! I was blogging on topix.net(argueing with the tea partiers)

and someone called me MR. slaves, so I took it from there.

its an interesting paradox, I think.!

Debby Bruck 5 years ago Author

Now we know where you got your nick name. The truth is that we are all slaves in some way: to our circumstances, our emotions, our blocks, our unconnectedness, our work, our thoughts, etc. You can take it from there. The fact that the world is fraught with fraud and deception for the power and money hungry means that the truth must be sough out, because we don't get it from the media.

Thank you for your interest and expertise on the indiscriminate use of drugs for infections. Yes I think vaccines are beneficial and needed especially the young and old. But an antibiotic won't work on a virus. I guess we will have to turn to the rainforests and come up with new antibiotics to fight germs that have become resistant to older remedies. But they say our rainforests are becoming depleted now and we might not always have their medicinal plants. Then I guess homeopathic remedies will be used.

Hello Electricsky ~ You touched upon a couple of important issues.

1) 60-70 percent of deforestation in the Amazon results from cattle ranches while the rest mostly results from small-scale subsistence agriculture. Natural resource deforestation includes the loss of one and one-half acres of rainforest every second, with a loss of 137 plant, animal and insect species every single day. This results in a loss of the ability of the rain forests to filter pollutants from our atmosphere. Once those rich ecosystems turn into arid deserts thousands of plants and animals will go extinct. Based upon a total of 10 million species, the current annual loss has been calculated to be 20,000 to 30,000 species. With the extinction of medicinal plants that contain within them the potential to heal all diseases the world. The loss cannot be counted.

Rainforests once covered 14% of the earth's land surface; now they cover a mere 6% and experts estimate that the last remaining rainforests could be consumed in less than 40 years. At the rate we are going, we won't be able to fall back on the wealth of a once green rainforest.

2) Health Freedom: For those, like yourself, who feel vaccines are beneficial, I wish you the best; just so long as people have the freedom not to choose vaccines for both young and old. The whole point of this hubpages states that bacteria and viruses will continue to mutate and humans cannot keep up with those changes to cure disease.

3) As a last remark, we will have to turn to homeopathic remedies which work on a different principle than the technological industry that pours millions and billions of dollars into decades of research without gaining much headway on many chronic and epidemic diseases.
