Experts fear diseases 'impossible to treat'

• www.independent.co.uk

Britain is facing a "massive" rise in antibiotic-resistant blood poisoning caused by the bacterium E.coli – bringing closer the spectre of diseases that are impossible to treat.

Experts say the growth of antibiotic resistance now poses as great a threat to global health as the emergence of new diseases such as Aids and pandemic flu.

Professor Peter Hawkey, a clinical microbiologist and chair of the Government's antibiotic-resistance working group, said that antibiotic resistance had become medicine's equivalent of climate change.

The "slow but insidious growth" of resistant organisms was threatening to turn common infections into untreatable diseases, he said. Already, an estimated 25,000 people die each year in the European Union from antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections.

Medical experts fear terrorists who call them "the biggest snake oil sales group" that should be wiped out from the face of the earth. Anti-Government terrorists are more dangerous than rattle snakes.  They rattle and strike without provocation... they just provoke themselves with their own funky imagination.

C'mon. Experts don't fear that diseases are becoming impossible to treat. They already know that! It's been proven out over the last 4 decades or so, that diseases become drug-resistant. They don't fear THAT. HERE'S WHAT THEY FEAR.

Medical experts fear that if they can't treat diseases, they will lose their credibility.

Medical experts fear that if they lose their credibility, they will lose their patients.

Medical experts fear that if they lose their patients, they will lose their money.

Medical experts fear that if they lose all of the above, people will finally figure out that the medical is the biggest snake oil sales group of them all, that has been screwing them all these years. They fear that they just might lose their lives at the hands of a nation and world full of vengeful people!

It seemed that NIH was very precise when it announced hatred of Government as a form of "mental illness". It is a new strain that is "impossible to treat".

If I might add, this hate-caused disease is spread by gnats [pronounced “nuts”] that nest in Congress.

 

You might have probably noticed that anti-Establishment politicians that want to kill the Federal Reserves, coddle terrorists and destroy the Government are active in their propaganda campaign to hasten the spread of the disease.  

You don’t have to get near Capitol Hills to get contaminated. Ron Paul is right here in this website. And so are the carriers of hate

The latest "impossible to treat" disease is extreme hatred of Government which the National Institute of Health recently declared as a new form of "mental illness". NIH reported that this form of mental disease is not only caused by bacteria resistant to antibiotics but a brain disease that has no cure.
