First, MRSA made a leap out of hospitals and into our communities. Now there’s another drug-resistant bacterium lurking in the shadows poised to overtake MRSA in the deadly super-bug game. It’s already killing over 28,000 of us a year. And conventional drugs are fast becoming useless in the fight to stop its spread.
C. diff is shudder worthy on several levels.
74% jump in C. diff infections in less than 10 years!
Between 1993 and 2001 there was a massive 74 percent leap in C. diff infections. In the five years between 2001 and 2005 those numbers doubled!
Now the number of drug-resistant strains of the bug is on the rise and shows no sign of slowing down. Some mutations are so powerful that victims can quickly go from a simple case of diarrhea straight to blood poisoning and eventually even death.
C. diff has super-staying power. It can live on surfaces for up to five months, sickening you for weeks…or even months…after you’re exposed.
Plus, the bug can lay dormant with no signs or symptoms that whole time. In other words, you may seem perfectly healthy, but still spreading the disease.
And conventional alcohol-based cleaners don’t kill it.
So what’s the game plan for beating C. diff and other super-bugs like it? Start with the simplest first. Be hyper-vigilant about hand washing. And since C. diff can’t be killed with typical alcohol-based cleaners switch to bleach ones, which are effective against the bug.
It also couldn’t hurt to give your immune system a boost by supplementing with colloidal silver, a quality probiotic formula, and vitamin C. And avoid unnecessary antibiotics.
C. diff. is definitely a case were an ounce of prevention is worth more than a ton of cure.
