Warning: This Antibiotic Will RUIN You!

“From ciproispoison.com:Cipro-induced toxicity syndrome wreaks absolute havoc on every part of a person’s body–every tendon and joint in the body can become affected, every organ (including the brain), peripheral nervous system (resulting in severe and potentially permanent pain conditions, dystonia, muscle weakness or autonomic dysfunction), … long lasting or permanent central nervous system damage (including relentless insomnia, memory problems, random panic, depersonalization, psychosis), … and on and on… .”

A study published by Mayo Clinic found almost 70 percent of Americans are on at least one pharmaceutical. Antibiotics top the list, followed by antidepressants and pain killers. Fluoroquinolones (also called “quinolone” or just “quin”) are one of the most commonly prescribed antibiotics in the USA. In 2011 a staggering 26.9 million prescriptions for oral and IV fluoroquinolone antibiotics were prescribed for routine infections.

Cipro, the ‘stellar’ fluoroquinolone burst into the media spotlight during the so-called anthrax scare on the heels of 9/11. Other popular fluoroquinolones are Levaquin, Avelox, and Floxin. Fluoroquinolones are actually deadly indiscriminate chemotherapy drugs, which Big Pharma reinvented as antibiotics and aggressively marketed.

Although all Big Pharma antibiotics are problematic and dangerous, fluoroquinolones are in a class all their own. Their potential for serious, often permanent harm and even death are becoming legendary -not because of FDA, or Big Pharma oversight, but because those who have been severely injured and disabled by fluoroquinolones are speaking out in droves on numerous internet forums, communities and facebook groups.

In 2008, the FDA (Fraud and Death Agency) reluctantly required some fluoroquinolone antibiotics to include a black-box warning; ironically, Cipro now carries two warnings. In fact, half of all fluoroquinolones have been removed from the market due to their dismal safety records, yet those remaining have yet to be proven any safer.

Cows are pumped up on drugs

Natural News: Writing in the New York Times, former FDA Commissioner Donald Kennedy warns that the widespread use of antibiotics in livestock is a major threat to human health.

“More than 30 years ago … we proposed eliminating the use of penicillin and two other antibiotics to promote growth in animals raised for food,” Kennedy writes. “When agribusiness interests persuaded Congress not to approve that regulation, we saw firsthand how strong politics can trump wise policy and good science.

Already in the 1980s, Kennedy notes, scientists knew that the non-therapeutic use of antibiotics to prevent infection in healthy animals and make them grow faster was leading to the evolution of drug-resistant bacteria. To make matters worse, the antibiotics used in animals are largely the same as those used in humans, meaning that when these livestock-produced superbugs infect humans, doctors have few ways to deal with them.

An estimated 90,000 people die from hospital-acquired infections in the United States every year. Seventy percent of these infections are antibiotic resistant. More

Animal Factory: What are you really eating?

The book Animal Factory, by David Kirby, takes a close look at factory farms and the problems they cause. In an interview with Time Magazine, Kirby talked about these farms and the appalling lack of government oversight and the outright refusal of government to address these issues.

Among the problems Kirby notes:

“… you’re often no longer feeding animals what they’re genetically designed to eat. CAFO cows eat a diet of milled grains, corn and soybeans, when they are supposed to eat grass.

The food isn’t natural because they very often put growth hormones and antibiotics in it. That becomes a problem when you put that manure on the ground.”

Can you say “agrobacterium”? 

Animal Factory also looks at the fate of the Neuse River in North Carolina, where waste runoff from pig farms caused massive fish die-offs.

Antibiotics: new literature for patients emphasizing the risks.

The Food and Drug Administration

imposed the government’s most urgent safety warning on Cipro, Levaquin, Avelox and many other flouroquinolone antibiotics. The FDA orders a prominent “black box” warning and the development of new literature for patients emphasizing the risks. The most prominent risk is tendon rupture causing long term disability, possibly permanent.

This is an important first step to ensuring these antibiotics are only used when the patient faces a potential fatal outcome, and only after the use of all other antibiotics have been ruled out. This is not due to the probability of risk, but rather severity.

To those who have been affected, prognosis is normally not good. More

MEAT TRADE DAILY  January 27, 2010

Is feeding antibiotics to food animals contributing to the increase in resistant bacterial infections of humans?

It’s a question that has been floating precariously between the livestock agricultural industry and the medical community for years, with plenty of speculation but no definitive answers.

But a piece of legislation introduced to Congress this past summer — timed, whether intentionally or not, with talks of health care reform and, to a lesser extent, the H1N1 influenza pandemic and humane animal treatment — has suddenly pushed this issue to the forefront of public discussion, and what was once an occasionally heated debate has now turned into a full-blown fight between the people who feed us and the people who treat our illnesses.

The “Preservation of Antibiotics for Medical Treatment” Act (PAMTA) of 2009, H.R. 1549 and its companion bill S. 619, would restrict the types of antibiotics used with animals intended for the food chain to those that demonstrate no harm to human health due to resistance development caused by nontherapeutic uses. These nontherapeutic uses refer to the feeding of antibiotics to the whole herd as a preventative measure, rather than treating illnesses of specific animals as needed; nontherapeutic antibiotic use may also be referred to as “antibiotics as growth promoters.” The antibiotics in question would be those that are also used to prevent or treat human infections, which would include seven classes of antibiotic: penicillins, tetracyclines, macrolides, lincosamides, streptogramins, animoglycosides, and sulfonamides.

Not surprisingly, this bill is pitting food producer against food user in a contentious fight for control over the American food supply. READ MORE
