An article about these superbugs that appeared in the Independent the other day got a lot of attention all around the world.  That article claims that prominent British doctors are warning that these superbugs could undo “a century of medical advances”…

Drug-resistant “superbugs” represent one of the gravest threats in the history of medicine, leading experts have warned.

Routine operations could become deadly “in the very near future” as bacteria evolve to resist the drugs we use to combat them. This process could erase a century of medical advances, say government doctors in a special editorial in The Lancet health journal.

That sounds quite serious.

So what would life be like without antibiotics?

Well, before antibiotics were invented if you scraped your knee and got an infection, there was a good chance that they would cut off your leg

In the period before World War II … people that got infections, they had to cut it out. They had to cut off limbs, cut off toes, because there weren’t antibiotics. And oftentimes, when people talk about the fact that we might have to go back to a pre-antibiotic age, that’s what they mean — that a simple scrape on the playground could be fatal.

Are you ready to go back to such a time?

You might not have to wait long.  According to one very prominent doctor quoted by the Daily Mail, we have already reached the end of the age of antibiotics…

A high-ranking official with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has declared in an interview with PBS that the age of antibiotics has come to an end.

‘For a long time, there have been newspaper stories and covers of magazines that talked about “The end of antibiotics, question mark?”‘ said Dr Arjun Srinivasan. ‘Well, now I would say you can change the title to “The end of antibiotics, period.”’

And all over the world the number of people becoming infected with these superbugs is rapidly growing.

In fact, right now 23,000 people a year are being killed by these superbugs in the United States alone…

More than two million people are infected by drug-resistant germs each year, and 23,000 die of their infections, federal health officials reported Monday. The biggest killer by far is C. difficile, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports in its first big overview of a growing problem.

Doctors have been warning of the problem for decades, yet up to half the prescriptions written for antibiotics are unnecessary, the CDC report says. And all these unneeded antibiotics are making the superbug problem worse.

Most Americans have never even heard of many of these superbugs, but they can be extremely deadly…

C. difficile has become a scourge of hospitals and infection is often made possible when patients are heavily treated with antibiotics to fight other infections. It can cause unstoppable diarrhea and the latest treatment doesn’t even involve antibiotics, but a transplant of so-called good bacteria from healthy patients.

CREs are a group of bacteria that resist even the strongest antibiotics. They include Klebsiella pneumoniae, which saw its infection rate jump 550 percent between 2001 and 2011.

“CRE is a nightmare bacteria we reported on in March, bacteria that can resist virtually all antibiotics,” Frieden said.

Gonorrhea may not be immediately life-threatening, but it’s developing resistance to the drugs that used to easily treat it. Patients can be left infertile, and, in January, Canadian researchers reported that seven percent of patients weren’t cured by the only pill left to treat gonorrhea.

And this is just the tip of the iceberg.  Experts are warning that we could soon see millions of people a year die from these superbugs all around the globe.

So why haven’t we heard more about this?

Why is this not being widely publicized?

Some are suggesting that some of the governments of the western world are engaged in an effort to keep this under wraps.  For example, just check out what has been going on in Canada

The federal government is hobbling efforts to control antibiotic-resistant microbes by sitting on reports about bacteria that sicken and kill thousands of Canadians each year, several doctors say.

Infectious disease experts say Ottawa is treating national microbial surveillance reports like “sensitive government documents.” And the doctors are so frustrated, they are releasing the data they can obtain on their own website.

“Otherwise, it’s years before we see it on the federal website,” says Dr. Mark Joffe, president of the Association of Medical Microbiology and Infectious Disease Canada (AMMI), which represents physicians, clinical microbiologists and researchers.

What would the motivation be for doing this?

Are they trying to avoid panic?

Or is a more sinister motive at work here?

Ultimately, this is a crisis that is only going to get worse as time goes by.

Antibiotic-resistant superbugs are rapidly spreading and becoming more powerful.

Meanwhile, scientists all over the world are telling us that there is not a thing that they can do to stop them.

The era of antibiotics has come to an end, and nobody is quite sure what is going to happen next.

    It’s all part of the population control agenda. One of the proponents of it was quoted as saying:

    “If I could be reincarnated, I would want to come back as a killer virus.”

    Looks like that’s exactly what’s going to happen.

      That would be the evil inbred freak, Prince Philip.

    The best thing you can do to avoid these superbugs is to stay away from hospitals. Hospitals are the breeding grounds for these things.

    • seth datta

      They make you sick with GMO, chemtrails etc.. (do you think THEY eat GMO??). Then they don’t even have the decency to sell you the cure; rather, they sell you the medicine which you need to keep buying ot prolong your life.

  • Rodster

    Just another way for TPTB to cull the human population. Antibiotics have been given out like candy for at least the last 40 years.

    • Bad Kitty Cat

      One little problem…. bacteria do not discriminate! There is NO magic cure. For effective population control, there needs to be a cure for the elite… but there is none. I get the sense this is something “random” they forgot to plan for…

      • alchemy

        There was a treatment for all illness, including cancer, that the AMA had buried, using frequencies tuned to each strain

      • kHRIStu4

        That’s what happens when ego, arrogance and god-like status clouds the mind and heart and they believe they are the creators and destroyers of all forms of life.

  • 2¢Wurth

    Whatever happened to leeches and bleeding. That should make a strong comeback.

    • Halcomb

      Under Obamacare use of leeches and bleeding will necessarily skyrocket…!!

    • Zen

      There is plenty of bleeding wallets and an over abundance of leaches in Obamacare.

      • 2¢Wurth

        If you like your leeches and bleeding, you get to keep your leeches and bleeding. Period.

        • HecatesMoon

          *snort!* lol

  • Jim Davis

    I’m not sure about the colloidal silver, but popping a few vitamins would be a good idea. The idea is to stay healthy so you can avoid the critical illness that will put you in the hospital. Also, snarkiness is hazardous to your health!

    Web site beforeitsnews has many articles about comet ISON which many people avoid comets bring virus just look up comets and viruses comet ISON is going to sweep by earth soon. Look up influenza in Latin influence of the stars take off the in of influence and you have flu. To really find the meaning research comets and viruses.

    • Snardflark

      Bring Colloidal Silver up to body temperature and drop any bacteria you can think of into it. If it survives it hasn’t been discovered yet.

  • Paul

    Yes you are right! For years farmers have been feeding antibiotic cocktails to their livestock to increase their growth rate. Slowly the intestinal bacteria in cattle , pigs and poultry have developed resistance to all antibiotics.

  • Paul

    If the government would subsidize the drug companies in the development of new antibiotics then maybe there would be enough profit incentive to develop brand new families of antibiotics.
    As it stands now, it takes ten years and a billion dollars to get FDA approval for the use of a new drug. So of course no one is interested in a drug which is taken for five to seven days when needed when they want drugs that need to be taken daily for life. That is another reason the drug companies are not interested in drugs that cure disease but only controls and manages them so you need medication for life. Remember there is no money in healthy people or sick animals, so cures are readily found for diseases of cattle and poultry.

    Let me see, they haven’t invented any new antibiotic’s sense 1987 and until today, and there not talking about creating any new antibiotic’s to fight these super bugs that are being said to be a major threat. Sounds to me like it’s another perfect way for the elites to have there depopulation and there agenda to go though with it, isn’t that what we read in the georgia guid stone that was put there by them that they also have written. Why haven’t they created any new antibiotic’s sense 1987 and there not even starting on it today is what really catches my attention, if this super bug that is starting to pop up now is so threatening and so dangerous then why haven’t they went back to start creating new antibiotic’s to fight this new disease? These are the latter days that jesus spoke about, that he said to watch out for because that singles his soon return. ARE YOU READY?

  • Gay Veteran

    Great article.
    Fixed your sentence: All over the planet bacteria are EVOLVING resistance to these drugs, and scientists are warning that they can’t really do anything to stop these superbugs.

  • Hammerstrike

    Thanks for helping the third-world so much, here is your reward!

    Could hospitals become obsolete due to antibiotic failure? And right when we just got Obamacare! It ain’t fair. I don’t think hospitals can function as they do now, without antibiotics.

    There is no fall back. We’ll be looking to return to the old ways, but there will be no one left to teach us how.

    Some people are really missing the point here. There is no developing of new antibiotics that will take on and destroy these monster germs. If we were to invent these new super germ super antibiotics, then in time, bacteria would evolve with a super resistance. That next strain to emerge from the smoke of battle might be exponentially more virulent and deadly than its parent’s generation. I think it would be safe to make that an assumption.

    This is a war we cannot win. We must develop a new philosophy of medicine. We must attain peaceful coexistence with our invincible germ foes. (See The Natural Mind, Andrew Weil, 1972)

    Hospital Scene from the near future

    Doctor: “We’ve finished the treatment.”
    Child Patient’s Mother: “How is he?”
    D: “Well, of course, he’s dead. No one can survive the treatment.”
    CPM (sobbing): “The germs?”
    D: “They’re all dead.”
    CPM: “Oh, my God! You got them. Got the germs? Thank God there is justice!”

  • Bryan

    i’m pretty sure they know what EXCACTLY! the cure is but they make up some sort of story saying they cannot come up with the cure their depopulation plan commences?

  • snardflark

    Bring Colloidal Silver up to body temperature and drop any bacteria you
    can think of into it. If it survives it hasn’t been discovered yet. Patent it quick…….

  • James Vaughan

    Back in my days in the Baptist and Methodist churches, they used to say “Get right with God before God gets right with you”. Looks like, to quote a certain song, “See the mountains darken yonder Black and running time is running out” and “Curse and damn you all you fall by the hand of the sinner”, which would mean, of course, by your very own hands, so lacking in mercy and compassion.

  • Woddy

    Simple problem.Simple solution.
    Stop spewing people into the world at uncontrolled rates, living super clean lives, eating crap and trying to keep people alive as long as possible !
    This is TOTALLY out of touch with reality and nature and THAT is why we face this superbug crisis.

  • Arizona

    HERES the way it is,AMERICA ELECTED ANOTHER LYING WHORE,WHEN NIXON WAS ELECTED,sure he promised to stop the WAR,he lied,BUT that ain’t the BIG ONE,he promised to shutdown THE US ARMYS bio-warfare center at ft.detrick maryland,HE DIDN’T,they have made EVERY virus,desease,bug,ANYONE EVER HEARD OF,and to this day their still,INVENTING NEW DESEASES,and spraying them on america,YOUR government is ROTTEN to the core,everyone on earth knows it BUT AMERICANS……………

  • Sorcha The Dark Eyed Elf

    Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the danger of superbugs is hyped up. Why? Well for one, antibiotics are primarily derived from microorganisms and are essentially compounds that those microorganisms use to fight other microorganisms. Because these microorganisms co-evolve, the harmless (to us) microorganisms are developing newer compounds that fight harmful (to us) microorganisms. Thus, it is a matter of finding these newly evolved compounds. Long story short, I am not ruling out a pandemic but hardly one that will devastate humanity. Thank Adaptation.

  • Sorcha The Dark Eyed Elf

    I absolutely agree with you about the greed on the part of pharmaceutical companies. Selling treatments instead of cures is much more profitable to them.
