2010--2014 Studies That Affect Your Health Through Contaminated Food and Water From Sewage
(70) 12/4/2010

Highlight
Klebsiella picks up gene to cause Antibiotic-Associated Hemorrhagic Colitis. Bacteria reactivated after 28
years. FDA only tests for thermotolerant gram negative bacteria in food. Gram negative bacteria cause
endocarditis. Gram negative bacterial hospital acquired infections kills 99,000 patients annually. Viruses
cause Ischemic strokes. Plants take up drugs, chemicals and pathogens. Federal Agencies claim to be
studying antibiotic resistance. Still ignoring it after 30 years.
