Can antibiotics still be relied upon? Especially when it comes to superbugs?
Its becoming evident that superbugs are outsmarting antibiotics. Experts are talking about the "antibiotic crisis" and how there are few to no solutions.
But are there solutions they have overlooked?
The Guardian in the UK recently posted an article explaining the antibiotic crisis and how it came to be.
The article talks about the situation in England, but the exact same scenario is playing out in the US and most developed nations: antibiotic resistant superbugs are threatening lives and health care as we know it. It is now routine to pick up one or several superbugs during even a short visit to the hospital.
"What is alarming is the rate at which bacteria are becoming resistant to antibiotics," says WHO adviser Dr. Danilo Lo Fo Wong. "We are increasingly seeing infections that do not respond to these drugs, and the more treatments fail, the more people die."
The end of the article comes to the conclusion that:

As if there are already not enough chemicals in our food, poultry processing plants are about to boost the amount of toxic chemicals used in processing poultry yet again, to levels that are causing illnesses, injuries and death to the workers. These chemicals will be passed on and consumed by consumers, as well.
Like other meats, chicken and turkey are processed by being hung on a "line" as they pass through inspection. These lines already move much faster than they did a few years ago. Very soon, they will be moving even faster.
Chemicals have been used to process tainted meat on the processing line for many years. However, in the past, poultry carcasses that were visibly contaminated were discarded or removed for cleaning so that the uncontaminated poultry was not exposed to high levels of chemicals.
Douse Them With Chemicals Instead of Washing Them Off With Water
New proposed regulations will allow ALL poultry carcases, even "visibly contaminated poultry carcasses to remain online for treatment” – instead of being removed for cleaning. In order to destroy pathogens, More on New Proposed Regs Will Massively Increase Chemicals In Poultry

What many parents suspected is true: children exposed to toxic substances can develop learning disabilities, asthma and other health problems. A landmark Environmental Protection Agency report came to these conclusions and was posted on EPA’s website in draft form in March 2011.
However, because of fierce opposition from the chemical industry, the report has been sidetracked indefinitely. It was referred to the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in early 2011, where it still sits and languishes to this day.
That should not stop parents from paying attention to the findings and protecting their children right away. The report cites hundreds of studies that show connections between exposure to certain chemical pollutants and how that correlates to negative health outcomes. It also cites animal studies that demonstrate cause and effect.

It is widely believed that vaccinations are the best form of prevention for a growing number of diseases.
The pharmaceutical companies bring America, the most advanced country in the world, a growing number of vaccinations to ostensibly improve our health and well-being. TV, newspaper, magazine and online ads proclaim the effectiveness and necessity of vaccines, and doctors dispense them routinely.
But the question is, are vaccinations paying off?
It depends who's collecting the benefits… the public or the pharmaceutical companies.
If you take a look at the chart below, you'll see that more vaccinations do not necessarily equal better health. In fact, you'll see that the opposite is true.

California is about to vote on Prop 37 – which would require GMO food labeling. Monsanto is doing a very effective job of confusing the public. They've spent 45 million on "No on 37" campaign propaganda using the same techniques they used in Oregon to successfully delude and confuse the public and squash the issue.
In Vermont, they bullied the legislature and threatened to sue the state of Vermont if they went ahead with a vote. Even though 90% of VT residents wanted GMO labeling, Vermont collapsed under the pressure and the issue never even when to a vote.
Breaking news in California is that the No on 37 Campaign is being investigated for a long list of documented deceptions and misrepresentations, including misrepresenting the FDA’s More on Will Monsanto Bully YOUR State, Too?
