CureZone Newsletter Issue 215: Antibiotics?


Despite incredible modern medical advances, it appears that we are sicker than ever before. Body of scientific evidence linking Antibiotics to a large number of modern chronic diseases is growing almost daily. Even doctors who were just until yesterday prescribing antibiotics for just about every single ear, throat and lung infection, are shifting the course, and are asking patients to try to heal the problem naturally before actually trying Antibiotics,
In this newsletter, a selected number of articles shows just how far science has come in recognizing long term dangers associated with repeated use of antibiotics.  From allergies, obesity, cancer and diabetes, to acne, eczema, seborrheic dermatitis and alteration of human DNA, from depression and anxiety to chronic joint pain, antibiotics are emerging as a universal underlying cause of an endless number of modern diseases.

Antibiotics found to weaken body's ability to fight off disease
New research shows that a reduction in the variety of microbes in the gut interferes with the immune system’s ability to fight off disease. Researchers at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have found that antibiotic use made neutrophils, a type of immune cell, less effective in fighting infections and weakened the intestinal barrier against invading bugs.

Do Antibiotics Raise Diabetes Risk via Gut Microbiota?
People who take multiple courses of antibiotics may face an increased risk of developing both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, potentially through alterations in gut microbiota, conclude US researchers.  The risk of diabetes was increased by up to 37%, depending on the type of antibiotic and the number of courses prescribed.

Bacterial Inheritance Leads Researchers to Rethink Heredity
A child’s genetics aren’t just a product of mom and dad’s DNA: Genes from mom’s gut microbes also play a role in how the kid turns out. Over the last decade or so it’s become increasingly clear that the microbiota—all the microorganisms that live in the gastrointestinal tract and elsewhere in the body—play a huge role in health and development.

The underlying cause of Acne and other skin problems?
A woman born in the 1940s might have two courses of antibiotics in childhood. If she has a daughter, she might pass on slightly fewer normal bacteria. Her daughter will likely have several courses of antibiotics and the granddaughter has slightly fewer bacteria again. Each generation could be beginning life with a smaller endowment.

Joint Pain, From the Gut
Several recent studies have found intriguing links between gut microbes, rheumatoid arthritis, and other diseases in which the body’s immune system goes awry and attacks its own tissue.

The Fat Drug - NY Times
If you walk into a farm-supply store today, you’re likely to find a bag of antibiotic powder that claims to boost the growth of poultry and livestock. That’s because decades of agricultural research has shown that antibiotics seem to flip a switch in young animals’ bodies, helping them pack on pounds. Manufacturers brag about the miraculous effects of feeding antibiotics to chicks and nursing calves. But, what happens to people ? Are we different ?

The “Leaky Brain”
”Do you suffer from depression, anxiety, brain fog, headaches, or insomnia? How about Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, dementia, Multiple sclerosis, ALS, seizures, or Autism? All of these neurological conditions have a common cause – chronic inflammation of the brain. Now answer this question – Have you ever taken antibiotics? If so, then the likelihood that you’ll experience one of these conditions, or others like them, is much greater.”

Store-bought probiotics are overrated, says expert
”But the idea that, of all thousand species in our bodies, taking a single species that comes from cow or cheese is naïve.”

Gut Biota Never Recover from Antibiotics: Damages Future Generations
The misuse of antibiotics is not only causing new, never-before known diseases like E. coli and MRSA, the flesh-eating bacteria, it’s also destroying the gut biome with devastating effects on our ability to deal with infections and destroying our ability to absorb nutrients from food.... ... Emerging research shows that the harmful effects of antibiotics go much further than the development of drug resistant diseases. The beneficial bacteria lost to antibiotics, along with disease-inducing bacteria, do not fully recover.

Antibiotics that kill gut bacteria also stop growth of new brain cells
Antibiotics strong enough to kill off gut bacteria can also stop the growth of new brain cells in the hippocampus, a section of the brain associated with memory, reports a new study in mice. Researchers also uncovered a clue to why -- a type of white blood cell seems to act as a communicator between the brain, the immune system, and the gut.

From gut dysbiosis to altered brain function and mental illness: mechanisms and pathways

Risks of Antibiotic Exposures Early in Life on the Developing Microbiome
While much of the evidence to date suggesting a link between the gut microbiota and autoimmune disease comes from differences in pathology between GF and conventionalized mice, there are numerous human association studies to suggest that such findings are applicable to humans [4,14]. In children with new-onset Crohn’s Disease, antibiotics amplified the changes in the microbiota and caused a mild increase in disease severity.

Candida & Non-candida Fungi Shown to invade Intestines & cause Cancer
Approximately 100,000 fungal species exist in the environment, but of these, only 300 species are known to cause animal or human infection34. Most of the fungal infections in humans are undiagnosed and under-reported35. In this study, sixty fungal genera were discovered, and two opportunistic pathogenetic fungi genera, Phoma and Candida, were abundantly (45%) present in all 54 biopsy samples.

Mother's Antibiotics - Doubles Child Obesity
Cesarean section (CS) and antibiotic use during pregnancy may alter normal maternal-fetal microbiota exchange, thereby contributing to aberrant microbial colonization of the infant gut and increased susceptibility to obesity later in life. We hypothesized that i) maternal use of antibiotics in the second or third trimester of pregnancy and ii) CS are independently associated with higher risk of childhood obesity in the offspring.

Modern Medicine May Not Be Doing Your Microbiome Any Favors
There are lots of theories about why food allergies, asthma, celiac disease and intestinal disorders like Crohn’s disease have been on the rise. Dr. Martin Blaser speculates that it may be connected to the overuse of antibiotics, which has resulted in killing off strains of bacteria that typically live in the gut.

Video: How can you say fecal transplants cured your Ulcerative Colitis? by White Shark
How can you say fecal transplants cured your Ulcerative Colitis?... ... Michael Hurst answers the question of how he can say fecal transplants were used to cure his case of Ulcerative Colitis on the ”Health Matters” talk show.... ...

Antibiotics may boost breast cancer risk
Breast cancer risk may be increased in women who use antibiotics, a study in JAMA suggests. The more antibiotics they use, the higher risk they will have to face.

The emerging world of the fungal microbiome
The study of the fungal microbiota (‘mycobiome’) is a new and rapidly emerging field that lags behind our understanding of the bacterial microbiome. Every human has fungi as part of their microbiota, but the total number of fungal cells is orders of magnitude smaller than that of the bacterial microbiota.

Lyme and Antibiotics: A Bridge to Disease
The commonly accepted treatment of Lyme disease with antibiotics is a bridge to a long list of diseases and conditions. Although this is rarely considered or talked about when a doctor hands out a prescription for antibiotics to a patient, it is a reality of antibiotic use. Choices for alternative effective treatments like Dr. Klinghardt’s Protocol are not as well known, leaving most people with a very limited range of choices. If someone chooses to use antibiotics, they should be armed with the knowledge of the consequences that are associated with them.

US born kids less healthy than immigrants
All this is easily and very logically explained by antibiotic use and the resulting fungal pandemic.

The Candida Facts Paper
The human digestive tract is said to contain some 100 trillion cells compared to about only 10 trillion human cells in the body. This particular arrangement has led to man being classified as a “super-organism,” whose health is directly related to the function of the thousands of species of micro-organisms that make up the 100 trillion cells in the intestinal tract.

Gut Microbiota Regulate Motor Deficits and Neuroinflammation in a Model of Parkinson’s Disease

Indicator of chronic fatigue syndrome found in gut bacteria
Physicians have been mystified by chronic fatigue syndrome, a condition where normal exertion leads to debilitating fatigue that isn’t alleviated by rest. There are no known triggers, and diagnosis requires lengthy tests administered by an expert.

How the Digestive System Affects Autism
Current autism rates have skyrocketed nearly 150-fold in the last half century, and all of us are justifiably concerned. We are told what does not cause autism, but it is unclear what does cause or contribute to this devastating condition. Furthermore, despite incredible modern medical advances, in many cases we are sicker than ever before.

Candida Infection - an Underlying Cause of Celiac Disease
This had led to the suggestion that C. albicans infection (CI) may be a triggering factor for Celiac disease (CeD) onset.

Mother's Microbiota & Brain Health
Bacteria in the gut of a pregnant mouse strengthen the blood-brain barrier of her developing fetus. The brain—the most exalted and enigmatic of organs, which is closed off from the rest of the body by a largely impermeable barrier—could not seem more disconnected from the intestine. Yet, according to a paper published today (November 19) in Science Translational Medicine, it’s thanks to the contents of the gut that the mouse brain’s impermeable barrier develops properly.

Food Allergies Could Be Caused By Antibiotics

antibiotic and a loss of bacteria

An article to read
”Antibiotics will wipe out all of the bacteria in the body within a period of 5 to 7 days. Some of the species will never return leading to permanent population shifts that can remain for a lifetime unless corrected. These population shifts can form the foundation for diseases and conditions that follow.

Gut Dysbiosis: The New Normal for U.S. Kids
How many kids did you know when you were growing up that had autism, ADHD, acid reflux, allergies, asthma, developmental delays and/or mental health issues? I knew of only ONE child with any one of these in the whole time I went to school from elementary school to high school. Now that I am a mom, I can tell you that it’s the rare child who does NOT have any chronic illnesses.

Antibiotics - Carcinogenic, Teratogenic, and Mutagenic Effects of Antibiotics
Researchers continue to show that antibiotics are far more dangerous than previously thought. A new study from Harvard researchers shows that antibiotics damage and alter human DNA, as well as proteins and fats in tissues. This type of effect classifies antibiotics as teratogens. " A teratogen is a drug or other substance capable of interfering with the development of an embryo fetus that may lead to birth defects or developmental malformations."

Antibiotics Shown To Damage Human Cells by Dr.Jeff
Antibiotics destroy all the bacteria in the body within 5-7 days, leaving space for the antibiotic resistant strains to take over and fungal candida to flourish. Additionally, they lead to priming the brain for a lifetime of inflammation that can cause rapid aging and neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, dementia, MS, ADHD, and other conditions. Antibiotics have also been associated with autoimmune disease like rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes.

Antibiotics in Processed Meats Kill Beneficial Bacteria by Dr.Jeff
This recently released study shows how antibiotic residues in conventionally-raised meats can go on killing beneficial bacteria.

Hospital Patients Getting Antibiotics for No Reason at All by Dr.Jeff
Scientists from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention surveyed patients in 183 hospitals across 10 states over the course of five months to capture a clearer picture of how often antibiotics are prescribed, how much is prescribed, and for how long. Of the roughly 11,000 patients surveyed close to half confirmed they had been given antibiotics. Most of this group also reported they were taking more than one form—some up to four different kinds at once.

Alzheimer's disease - Again linked to fungal infections, say scientists
Fungal infections could be linked to the development of Alzheimer’s disease, scientists have claimed in a new study. Tests on brain samples from deceased Alzheimer’s patients showed they contained fungal proteins, The Local reported.
