Default MRSA Superbug Invades Public Schools as Conventional Medicine Ignores Natural Cures

MRSA Superbug Invades Public Schools as Conventional Medicine Ignores
Natural Cures
by Mike Adams (see all articles by this author)

(NaturalNews) Schools in at least eight states have reported confirmed cases
of students being infected with the "superbug" known as
methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) following the death of a
17-year old Virginia student late last year, and the deaths of a New
Hampshire preschooler and an 11-year-old from Mississippi a week earlier.
MRSA, it seems, is taking hold in the U.S. population.

In addition to the cases in those states, schools in North Carolina, West
Virginia and Connecticut have reported infections among their students, and
a high school district in Tucson, Arizona sent a letter home to parents
advising them that one student had been infected and another suspected case
was awaiting confirmation. In Chicago, officials at Naperville High School
did not become aware that there had been two cases of MRSA among football
players there in the previous month until an athletic trainer learned of the
incidents and reported them to the administration.

MRSA is a strain of the common bacterium that causes "staph" infections.
While such infections are normally easy to treat with a variety of
antibiotics, MRSA is resistant to these medications. MRSA is easily killed,
of course, by natural medicines such as colloidal silver, aloe vera gel,
garlic or any number of additional antibacterial medicines from Mother
Nature, but doctors and hospitals don't use medicine from Mother Nature, so
they suffer under the illusion that MRSA has "no cure" and can't be
effectively treated. The limitations of antibiotic chemicals, it seems, have
become the mental limitations of physicians, too.


What is MRSA?
MRSA was first identified in the United States in 1968. The staph bacteria,
which occurs naturally on human skin and in nasal passages, can cause minor
infections of the skin or other soft tissue if it enters an open wound. In
rare cases, however, the bacteria becomes "invasive," colonizing another
part of the body. In these cases, the staph bacteria can infect the
bloodstream, urinary tract, lungs or other organs and lead to potentially
fatal complications, including pneumonia or the state of whole-body
inflammation known as sepsis. Even in less severe cases, a staph infection
can lead to skin necrosis and the development of painful abscesses.

Staph infections can be spread by skin-to-skin contact or by sharing a towel
with an infected person. This makes staph epidemics particularly likely in
institutional settings like hospitals, prisons, nursing homes, sports
facilities and schools. In schools, athletes are particularly at risk - the
crowding and lack of hygiene in gyms and locker rooms provide a perfect
breeding ground for MRSA.

"These situations set up the perfect scenario for the organism to invade the
skin," said Dr. Pascal James Imperato, former commissioner of public health
for New York City and chairman of the Department of Preventive Medicine at
SUNY Downstate Medical Center. "In this setting, you have sweat and good
exposure to skin. With youths who play football or lacrosse, the skin might
also be cut or scraped, making the skin more vulnerable."

In response to the recent death of a student from MRSA, students in Bedford
County, Virginia, demanded that their schools be sterilized. After students
organized themselves over text messages and the internet to protest the
unsanitary conditions at their schools - including taking the Bedford County
Schools Superintendent on a tour of one high school to demonstrate the
problem - the schools agreed to comply with their demands. All 21 schools in
the county were closed, scrubbed and sanitized on October 17. Schools were
also sanitized in Indiana and West Virginia, with a particular emphasis on
locker rooms and gyms.

In Illinois, state officials are considering a recommendation that would
specifically encourage health care officials to report any cluster of MRSA -
defined as three or more cases - in an institutional setting. This rule is
intended to alert health officials to any potential epidemics in the making,
before the infection spreads too widely. The recommendation was prompted by
the recognition that it took officials at Naperville High School weeks to
learn about the two infections in their football team, and the fact that
infections diagnosed at off-site health care facilities may never be
reported to the school.


MRSA now killing more Americans than AIDS
Concern over MRSA infections has increased not only from the recent deaths
of grade-school students, but also by a recent report from the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that was published in the Journal of
the American Medical Association. The report concluded that MRSA infection
is far more common in the United States than previously thought, and that it
kills more people yearly than AIDS, emphysema, Parkinson's disease or
homicide.

The CDC calculated that deaths from MRSA in the United States may amount to
nearly 19,000 people yearly, although the agency added that it can be hard
to determine if death is caused directly by the disease or merely
accelerated by it. The CDC estimated the infection rate at 32 per 100,000
people, making even the rate of invasive MRSA higher than the combined rate
of other invasive bacterial conditions, including bloodstream infections,
meningitis and flesh-eating strep.

While MRSA is still most common in hospital settings, it is becoming
increasingly common outside the health-care world as well. "Now we know
there's also a community-acquired strain of MRSA," Imperato said. "That
doesn't mean that it hasn't always existed. It's just that now, we have
become knowledgeable about it."

Imperato said that staying clean - whether that means health-care
professionals washing hands or athletes showering immediately after
exercise - is the best way to avoid spreading MRSA.

"Good old-fashioned cleanliness serves as the best barrier to these
organisms," he said. "Just washing with ordinary soap and water is enough to
remove any of the organisms that may have colonized in the skin."


Why conventional medicine is clueless to stop MRSA
Conventional medicine has not merely failed to stop MRSA, it has in fact
accelerated the development of MRSA through rampant use of chemical
antibiotics. This created the perfect environment in which MRSA superbugs
could grow and escape outside the hospitals, into "the wild," as it's called
by infectious disease experts.

Even worse, doctors and hospitals have so far refused to treat MRSA with
anything that actually works. Instead of looking to Mother Nature, where
cures for MRSA are as common as weeds (literally!), arrogant doctors and
Western medical researchers continue to foolishly believe that only
synthetic, patented chemical antibiotics have any use whatsoever, and that
anything from nature couldn't possibly be of any help.

They also don't appear to show any interest whatsoever in the technology of
colloidal silver, a substance that quickly kills not just MRSA, but ALL
antibiotic-resistant infectious strains. A quick wipe-down of hospitals,
schools and gyms with colloidal silver would halt these MRSA infections in
their tracks. Colloidal silver can also be used topically, on MRSA skin
infections, where it quickly kills bacteria without any negative side
effects whatsoever. One source I recommend, by the way, is www.Silver100.com

Consider this for a moment: Every plant in the world grows its own
antibacterial medicine. If it didn't, bacteria would eat it up within hours.
This is especially true of the roots of plants, because roots have to
survive the onslaught of soil bacteria (which are present in very high
numbers unless the soil has been treated with chemical pesticides, of
course). Roots, therefore, contain powerful antibacterial medicine.

Doctors don't like to admit Mother Nature has already developed this
technology that continues to elude the "best and brightest minds" in modern
medicine. What's at stake here, of course, is the ego and pride of the whole
system of Western medicine. If doctors, hospitals and researchers have to
admit that Mother Nature has already engineered thousands of different cures
for MRSA, then it sort of makes doctors look stupid for a couple of reasons.
One, it means that plants are better at making medicine than drug companies
(which, of course, they are), and two, it means all the doctors who have
been holding out for the next "wonder" drug while overlooking the simple,
natural cures available in their back yard begin to look like irrational
defenders of a nearly-useless system of pharmaceutical medicine (which, of
course, they are as well).

So there's a mass delusion being played out by Western medicine today where
doctors pretend natural medicine doesn't exist and thereby claim that MRSA
has no cure. This is the fountain of stupidity from which our current MRSA
problems have sprung. Instead of using what works, modern medical hacks are
more interested in protecting their intellectual territory, thereby denying
patients access to (or knowledge of) those things that could reduce
suffering or even save their lives. And thus, the bewildered, fumbling
"experts" of Western medicine continue the charade of looking for the next
great antibiotic medicine that will finally conquer MRSA, even while cures
for MRSA are so common that you can't take a walk in the woods or a city
park without seeing hundreds or thousands of them. (Those trained in Western
medicine are literally blind to nature.)

What they conveniently forget, of course, is the simple fact that clever
MRSA bacteria will mutate a new resistance to the next billion dollar
antibiotic medicine in about a day or so. And that means that all the
self-proclaimed brilliance of Big Pharma's researchers and chemists can be
outsmarted by a single-celled organism that doesn't even have half a brain.

That's totally false. These "natural medicines" don't kill MRSA or
otherwise effective treat MRSA infection. Using natural medicines when
they are ineffective is bad medicine and a waste of time and resources.
If I am incorrect, please provide the peer-reviewed evidence that MRSA
is killed by colloidial silver, aloe vera gel or garlic.

Idiot! You jerks will not "peer review" many things that work well. Which
"peers" might you be talking about?

MRSA is not resistant to all antibiotics.

of course, by natural medicines such as colloidal silver, aloe vera gel,
garlic or any number of additional antibacterial medicines from Mother
Nature,


Evidence that this is true, please.

but doctors and hospitals don't use medicine from Mother Nature,


Doctors use what medicine has been proven to work. These "natural
medicines" do not work. If I am wrong, good evidence that they work, please.

so
they suffer under the illusion that MRSA has "no cure" and can't be
effectively treated.


Gee, I am under no such illusion. There are antibiotics that kill these
germs, like vancomycin.

The limitations of antibiotic chemicals, it seems,
have
become the mental limitations of physicians, too.


Not true. However, the limitations of natural medicines have become your
limitations. That is, they do not work.
