"On any given day, 1 in 25 hospital patients has at least one healthcare-associated infection," reports the CDC newsroom.(1)
"The CDC's 2011 survey of 183 hospitals showed that an estimated 648,000 patients nationwide suffered 721,000 infections, and 75,000 of them died," reports the Washington Post.(2)
If you do the math, that comes out to 205 deaths per day, on average, in U.S. hospitals.
Keep in mind that if terrorists were killing 205 Americans per day, every news network in the country would cover the story 24/7. If airplane crashes were killing 205 Americans per day, it would be headline news everywhere, and if vitamins were killing even just 1 person a day, the entire government would be calling to "ban all vitamins!"
But when hospital superbug infections result in the deaths of 205 Americans per day, it is simply another statistic and not treated as a national emergency. Somehow, the annual death of 75,000 Americans is considered "business as usual" in a sick-care system that virtually everyone considers a disastrous failure.
A hospital is one of the most dangerous places you can go in AmericaWhat these numbers prove is that a hospital is a very dangerous place. Simply entering the hospital for a seemingly routine surgical procedure can result in your death. I personally know of many people who entered the hospital to undergo elective, non-emergency surgery and then never came out alive.
And who is the most likely person to infect you in a hospital? Your doctor, of course. The very people who claim to be state-licensed authorities on all things related to health are actually carriers of deadly disease who routinely (and inadvertently) infect new patients with extremely dangerous microbes. They don't do this on purpose, of course, but neither do they take the precautions necessary to prevent it.
Hand washing practices, for example are routinely ignored by most medical staff. In fact, a study commissioned by the licensing body for U.S. hospitals found that poor sanitation practices by hospital staff kills 247 patients each day across America. The study found "that doctors and nurses washed their hands only 30 to 70 percent of the time that they entered or exited a patient's room."
Doctors and hospitals refuse to embrace colloidal silver, antimicrobial copper, or medicinal herbsBy definition, "superbugs" like c. diff are completely resistant to modern antibiotic drugs. All of Big Pharma's chemicals are useless against them. And because conventional medicine completely disregards the antibacterial power of colloidal silver, copper, garlic or antibacterial herbs, patients are never given those treatment options. As a result, a superbug infection almost always means death when you're in the hospital. This is a case where the ignorance of conventional medicine can literally get you killed.
As it turns out, doctors and hospitals have no clue how to stop superbug infections, so they leave patients to die. And they die by the hundreds each day: over 200 daily in the United States alone. The CDC isn't even trying to hide this statistic. They're claiming, in fact, that they are "making progress" on this front when in truth they have already lost the war.
The era of chemical antibiotics is overThe great failure of modern medicine is that it invented and unleashed the vehicle of our own medical self destruction: antibiotics. These patented chemicals were once heralded as "miraculous cures" but have now thrust humanity to the brink of medical self-destruction. Soon, a simple infection entering your body from a minor scrape or cut may prove deadly, with doctors having run out of prescription chemical weapons to use against it.
And then, every routine surgery will be a life-and-death matter. This includes cosmetic surgery, gallbladder removal surgery and of course emergency room trauma surgery.
