Hospital Fungus Infections

Hospital Fungus Infections
Print Friendly, PDF & Email
A few weeks ago (4/28/14), The newspaper, Times of India, reported that 50% of hospital fungal infections in Bhopal go undiagnosed. Indian doctors stated that 10% of eye damage in these hospitals is due to fungal infections. They further stated that those with newly acquired fungal infections had 50-90% increased morbidity, or new diseases caused by the fungus.

Here is what is shocking to me. Why is it that it was European doctors who, in January of this year, announced that a large percentage of their Alzheimer’s patients had fungus in their blood stream? They even questioned if fungus could be the cause of their Alzheimer’s disease! It was African doctors who discovered a new pathogenic fungus in the bloodstreams of 24 African AIDS patients. It is these Indian doctors who now know that hospitalizations raise a significant risk of blood stream fungal infections. Where are American doctors?

I believe American doctors still believe that a blood stream fungal infection would quickly kill a person. We’re behind in our knowledge of systemic fungal infections. For example, in the past few years, several studies have found that antifungal drugs inhibit cancer from metastasizing and/or kill cancer cells! Cancer might be defined as a systemic fungal condition, given that these systemic antifungal drugs benefitted cancer patients. Every oncologist in America should be prescribing antifungal drugs to every cancer patient they have based on these reports, yet none are. Why?

While other countries researchers are discovering “the cause,” America researchers, instead, refer to the large number of hospital readmissions, without comprehending why. Says one newspaper, “More than 1 million Americans wind up back in the hospital only weeks after they left for reasons that could have been prevented – a revolving door that for years has seemed impossible to slow.” All we know is that patients are going back in the hospital over and over again. Other countries are figuring out why.
