“You can always count on Americans to do the right thing, after they’ve tried everything else.” Winston Churchill
You’ve seen the headlines the past few days; CDC says “nightmare bacteria” a growing threat, or NYC Warns of “absolutely terrifying” meningitis outbreak.
What if I told you that our own ignorance is causing these horrific outbreaks and mutations? I believe they are.
Here is another case in point and a scientific paper (Journal of Biological Chemistry) that confirms my suspicions. A few weeks ago, I read another dramatic headline aimed at scaring us. It said: Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing: Uncovering How Deadly Bacteria Trick the Immune System. The Journal Science published that certain bacteria, including the type that causes tuberculosis, can “pretend to be viruses when infecting human cells and cause them to hijack the body’s immune response.” Nonsense, I say! What if these “certain bacteria” aren’t bacteria or pretend viruses at all? What if they are fungus? I believe they are and so does Professor Andrew Munro in England, whose discovery in 2007 was funded by The Bill Gates Foundation, The European Union and The World Health Organization.
Munro discovered that Tuberculosis (TB), one of the world’s most deadly infectious diseases, responds favorably to “common antifungal drugs.” Why would TB die in the presence of antifungal drugs? There is but one reason. TB must be fungus, not bacteria! Why has TB become so aggressive? I believe it is because we rapidly accelerated these fungi with the indiscriminant use of antibiotics. In doing so, the fungus became more virulent. Most importantly, since it was never bacteria in the first place, we are erroneously referring to it as “nightmare bacteria” or an absolutely terrifying bacterium, when in fact it never was bacterial at all.
