One of the most important videos you'll ever watch:

Investing, of any kind, has little meaning in the context of global genocide represented by widespread use of nuclear power.

We're going to find out very soon whether the human race has any real survival instinct, or whether all we care about is making money.

Send this video to all your adult family members, friends and political representatives. And, urgently ask that they PLEASE do the same.

It's time to put a end to this global suicide.

Antibiotic Resistance Could Bring 'End of Modern Medicine'By Katie Moisse | ABC News Blogs – 17 hrs ago
news.yahoo.com


As bacteria evolve to evade antibiotics, common infections could become deadly, according to Dr. Margaret Chan, director general of the World Health Organization.

Speaking at a conference in Copenhagen, Chan said antibiotic resistance could bring about "the end of modern medicine as we know it."

"We are losing our first-line antimicrobials," she said Wednesday in her keynote address at the conference on combating antimicrobial resistance. "Replacement treatments are more costly, more toxic, need much longer durations of treatment, and may require treatment in intensive care units."

Chan said hospitals have become "hotbeds for highly-resistant pathogens" like methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, "increasing the risk that hospitalization kills instead of cures."

Indeed, diseases that were once curable, such as tuberculosis, are becoming harder and more expensive to treat.

Chan said treatment of multidrug resistant tuberculosis was "extremely complicated, typically requiring two years of medication with toxic and expensive medicines, some of which are in constant short supply. Even with the best of care, only slightly more than 50 percent of these patients will be cured."

Antibiotic-resistant strains of salmonella, E. coli, and gonorrhea have also been discovered.

"Some experts say we are moving back to the pre-antibiotic era. No. This will be a post-antibiotic era. In terms of new replacement antibiotics, the pipeline is virtually dry," said Chan. "A post-antibiotic era means, in effect, an end to modern medicine as we know it. Things as common as strep throat or a child's scratched knee could once again kill."

The dearth of effective antibiotics could also make surgical procedures and certain cancer treatments risky or even impossible, Chan said.

"Some sophisticated interventions, like hip replacements, organ transplants, cancer chemotherapy and care of preterm infants, would become far more difficult or even too dangerous to undertake," she said.

The development of new antibiotics now could help stave off catastrophe later. But few drug makers are willing to invest in drugs designed for short term use.

"It's simply not profitable for them," said Dr. William Schaffner, chairman of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. "If you create a new drug to red cholesterol, people will be taking that drug every day for the rest of their lives. But you only take antibiotics for a week or maybe 10 days."

Schaffner likened the dilemma to Ford releasing a car that could only be driven if every other vehicle wasn't working.

"While we try to encourage the pharmaceutical industry to create new antibiotics, we have to be very prudent in their use," he said.

But there are ways to limit the potential for bacteria to develop antibiotic resistance: Use antibiotics appropriately and only when needed; follow treatment correctly; and restrict the use of antibiotics in food production to therapeutic purposes.

"At a time of multiple calamities in the world, we cannot allow the loss of essential antimicrobials, essential cures for many millions of people, to become the next global crisis," said Chan.

It sure is. By far, the most important post I've ever put on the web. Hope everyone watches the video AND takes action, per my plea.

To everyone who's reading this:

We can all get away with sitting around simply talking about the long list of issues we usually cover on this thread. Then, go back to life as usual.

That's not an option with this issue. Market crashes, global debt implosion, even the collapse of empires...all pale into insignificance by comparison. Why?

Because there'll be billions of people left to pick up the pieces and rebuild. Not so with the nuke issue. Once the atmosphere, water and food become radioactive enough? Poof! It's over. And it WILL happen if things continue on the current path. Dozens of these death machines, now being relicensed to operate decades beyond their design limits will inevitably provide a number of Fukushima;/Chernoble repeats. These plants poorly constructed and maintained with "regulation" that's nothing but a joke.

Denial and business as usual isn't acceptable, folks. We must face the reality that we're looking at nothing less than the extinction of our species unless we can get off our butts, get family, friends, business associates and especially our elected representatives to decommission, dismantle and dispose of these deadly materials.

Story below, updates a long running saga, that most people in CA have probably forgotten about, came out yesterday And there R dozens and dozens more that pop up and quickly disappear from the MSM on regular basis:
