Entire hospital ICU in China gets completely overtaken by antibiotic-resistant superbugs, putting patients at serious risk

May 11, 2023 -

British researchers recently reported on a hospital in Hangzhou, China, that became completely overrun with a particularly virulent antibiotic-resistant "superbug" that ended up infecting one in three patients.

Known as carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii, or CRAB, the superbug in question found its way into the hospital's intensive care unit (ICU). From there, it spread through HVAC ventilation ducts, plumbing, and shared equipment, infecting both patients ...

Natural and effective cleaning supplies you can use to safely disinfect your home

June 02, 2023 -


A 70 percent isopropyl alcohol is the most effective at killing pathogens – far better at killing bacteria and other viruses than 99 percent isopropyl alcohol.

Rubbing alcohol, just like hand sanitizer, kills the germs on your hands. Alcohol immediately kills germs on contact and disinfects surfaces for hours afterward. But you shouldn't consider cleaning your entire home using rubbing alcohol, because alcohol can evaporate off surfaces too quickly to actually neutralize ...

Why “bastard myrobalan” may be the next natural cure for antibiotic-resistant bacteria

February 27, 2019 -

Infections caused by MDR bacteria tend to be more severe than those caused by normal bacteria. Because of this, they are also more likely to lead to death. According to the World Health Organization, researchers should prioritize finding treatments for the following MDR bacteria: Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter baumannii, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Escherichia coli. These bacteria are known to cause various diseases. The Gram-positive ...

DIM in broccoli and cruciferous vegetables could be the solution to antibiotic resistance

August 05, 2022 -

New research reveals that DIM, a popular anti-cancer substance sold in supplement form, fights harmful bacteria such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Acinetobacter baumannii, both of which are considered resistant to pharmaceutical-based antibiotics.

Tests showed that DIM has the capacity to inhibit biofilm formation of these bacteria by anywhere from 65-70 percent. When combined with certain antibiotics, that level of effectiveness increases to a 98 percent reduction ...

Not all bad: How “good” viruses boost your well-being

June 16, 2021 -

What are bacteriophages?

The community of viruses inside your body is called the "virome." The virome makes up part of the total population of microorganisms living inside your body, which is collectively called the "human microbiome." Researchers also use the term in reference to the sum of the genetic material of these microorganisms.

The virome is considered to be the largest, most diverse and most dynamic part of the human microbiome. It emerges a week after birth, at ...

Mercury UV vendor’s false and misleading statements put hospital patients and staff at risk

March 29, 2017 - The following is a rebuttal to an article on Natural News entitled UV light treatments found to slash hospital superbug infections by 30%, which touted the benefits of a UV treatment technology to eliminate superbugs in hospitals. A competing manufacturer of UV treatment devices says the press release upon which that story was based is misleading, so we gave them an opportunity to tell their side of the story. What follows is their perspective on this issue.

Ancient soil bacteria holds key to preventing modern superbugs

August 15, 2019 -

To date, antibiotic resistance is one of the world’s biggest problems. Microorganisms are evolving at a rapid rate and developing defense mechanisms against drugs that are meant to defeat them. The Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC) reports that at least 23,000 people die from drug-resistant infections every year.A sweet-smelling hope against superbugs

The soil sample that the researchers analyzed came from a place called Boho Highlands in Northern Ireland....

Carvacrol, a compound found in oregano, exhibits powerful antimicrobial properties

Low dosages of carvacrol kill A. baumannii

To test their strength against different pathogens, the researchers used gaseous contact assay to determine the minimum inhibitory dose (MID) of the tested compounds. The MID is the lowest concentration of each compound capable of preventing the growth of bacteria. They also isolated different strains of A. baumannii, a nosocomial (hospital-derived) pathogen known to infect people with weak immune systems, from different specimens. They ...

Scientists discover that common purslane and henna show great potential in preventing yeast infections

July 29, 2018 -

Microbial infections are among the leading causes of human disease. In modern medical conventions, the go-to method for curing infections is to prescribe antibiotics. However, such an approach comes with two problems.

First, while the first antibiotics were derived from natural compounds and chemicals, modern antibiotics are often made from synthetic “chemical relatives.” This means that while they may offer the same benefits, using them also comes at a price. Even common ...
