Antibiotics | Biology  for All | FuseSchool
Antibiotics… one of the greatest discoveries of the 20th century. You’ve probably taken them at some point during your life… maybe for a throat or ear infection? About 20 doses of antibiotics are prescribed per 1,000 people every day worldwide. That’s the same as 1 in 50 people every day! So what are Antibiotics? Well it is the name for a group of drugs which are used to treat disease caused by bacteria, and bacteria only. They do not work for anything else, so viruses like colds and the flu can’t be treated with antibiotics. Bacteria are single-celled organisms which can be pathogenic. That means that they can cause disease in humans and animals and antibiotics can be used to treat these diseases. In 1928, Alexander Fleming discovered the very first antibiotic; penicillin.One day after studying influenza he noticed that mould had accidentally developed on a set of petri dishes being used to grow the bacteria called ‘staphylococcus’. The mould had created a bacteria free circle around itself. The mould was the fungus penicillium notatum. Fleming concluded that the bacteria on the plate had been killed off by a substance in the mould. Fleming named this active bacteria-killing substance Penicillin. Other scientists then worked on penicillin further so that it could be produced as a drug, and by the 1940s it was being mass-produced by pharmaceutical companies.So how are antibiotics mass-produced? There are three methods for making antibiotics. Naturally - These are made by other microorganisms, such as fungi and other bacteria, like Fleming discovered.They are grown in huge colonies, where the active substance is then extracted. Synthetic - Some antibiotics can be made completely in the lab. Semi-synthetic - This method takes naturally occurring antibiotics and then uses lab work to add additional amino acids or groups to slightly change and enhance the antibiotic, to create a new type. Penicillin was just the start, we now make over 100 different types of antibiotics against different types of bacteria. So how do antibiotics actually work? Antibiotics affect specific parts of bacterial cells which human cells don’t have, they stop the bacterial infection but don’t harm human cells. This is done in two ways, that antibiotics work: either by stopping the bacteria from reproducing or by killing the bacteria. Antibiotics do this by inhibiting certain metabolic, or chemical, processes which occur inside the bacteria. For example, they can stop protein synthesis, DNA replication or break down their cell wall. This is why they are not useful against viruses, as viruses are not living organisms and so don’t have metabolic processes that the antibiotics can disrupt. This is why it is very important to check whether an infection is caused by a bacterium rather than a virus before attempting to treat it with antibiotics. The discovery of Antibiotic is one of the greatest scientific achievements of the 20th century, and has played a huge role in keeping the public healthy. However, bacteria are becoming resistant to antibiotics. This is a major public health threat. Antibiotic resistance is happening through natural selection. In a large population of bacteria, due to genetic variation, some of the bacteria have a natural resistance to the antibiotics. These bacteria survive and reproduce, and pass on resistance so that the whole colony become resistant to antibiotics. SUBSCRIBE to the FuseSchool YouTube channel for many more educational videos.

Penicillin - a dangerous medical breakthrough? | DW Documentary (Penicillin documentary)
Penicillin, accidentally discovered by Alexander Fleming in 1928, revolutionized the treatment of deadly diseases. But even Fleming suspected its danger. [Online until: December 17, 2018] In the summer of 1928, Scottish physician Alexander Fleming returned from vacation to his laboratory at St. Mary's Hospital in London and accidentally discovered a mold in a Petri dish that could apparently kill even the most hardy germs. Fleming called the fungus "penicillin." He hoped it would help him achieve his vision of a drug that would only attack pathogens, not the body’s healthy cells. It would take two decades and a world war before Fleming and others succeeded in producing the antibiotic in such quantities that the epidemics of the time - typhus, syphilis, gangrene, tuberculosis - could be eradicated. But Fleming suspected the medical breakthrough might one day prove catastrophic. The problems began with the first use of penicillin as a mass drug in the Allied offensive against Hitler’s Germany in 1944. After the war, penicillin could even be purchased in US pharmacies as chewing gum for a sore throat. In occupied Germany and Austria, unscrupulous smuggler bands exploited a ban on penicillin by selling stolen and counterfeit products. Today, an estimated 70 percent of aggressive germs are now penicillin-resistant and hospitals have long been on red alert. A film by Wilfried Hauke about a remarkable life-saving treatment that also poses a great danger. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

English/Nat A mould that produced the first penicillin, grandfather of all antibiotics, has been acquired by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington. The mould is a round, gray, flat, fuzzy-looking substance about an inch and a half wide, encased in glass. Next to it is a facsimile of the reverse side, showing the handwritten inscription: "The mould that makes Penicillin. Alexander Fleming." Fleming, a Scot, developed penicillin in 1928. He had been working on the possibility of an agent to kill bacteria, but succeeded by accident. A culture of bacteria left unprotected was contaminated by a mould - a fungus from the air. Scientists say that discovery was one of the most important of the 20th century. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I think everyone would say that the discovery of penicillin was one of the most important particularly at that time when infectious diseases were the number one killer in people of both the developed world and the underdeveloped countries, the United States and Europe and the underdeveloped and less developed countries." SUPER CAPTION: Scott Hopkins, MD, Pfizer Central Research He noticed that bacteria were killed in an area around the fungus. He managed to grow the fungus in a broth, but had trouble extracting the substance that killed the bacteria. Other researchers made progress in the 1930s, but they could only produce tiny quantities. Under the pressures of World War II, an American pharmaceutical firm found a way to mass produce it in 1944. Penicillin and its successors have saved millions of lives. SOUNDBITE: (English) "It's easy to forget that at the turn of the century when people came into pharmacies like this and even after WWII many were dying from infection, sometime from just a simple cut. Artifacts like the penicillin mold takes us back to an exciting time in history when the war against infections began to be won." SUPER CAPTION: Ray Kondratas, Curator and Chair, Div. of Science, Medicine and Society, National Museum of American History Pfizer Inc, the original mass producers, bought one of the two slides that Fleming gave his laboratory assistant, paying 35,160 US dollars at a London auction in 1996. The company lent it to a Smithsonian travelling exposition, "Microbes: Invisible Invaders, Amazing Allies," now on show in Washington at the International Gallery of the Smithsonian. SOUNDBITE: (English) "That gave us a tool to work with and the knowledge that we could take natural products the product of a mold and use that and manipulate it chemically to allow us to treat infections, and that was really the first time that we knew that we could do that." SUPER CAPTION: Scott Hopkins, MD, Pfizer Central Research Although penicillin was a breakthrough drug in fighting disease, now scientists worry that bacteria are developing ways to resist antibiotics faster than new ones can be found. Pfizer's board formally made a gift of the slide to the Smithsonian on Thursday. Sotheby's auction house authenticated the inscription as Fleming's handwriting. After the exhibit closes here September 6, it will travel to the Chicago Academy of Sciences and at least nine other American cities through January 5, 2003, before going into the National Museum of American History.

28th September 1928: Penicillin discovered by Alexander Fleming
Penicillin – which Fleming originally referred to as ‘mould juice’ – was initially met with little attention or enthusiasm by the medical establishment. However, the early 1940s saw research by Howard Florey and Ernst Boris Chain at the Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford raise the profile of the drug and begin mass-production to treat Allied casualties in the Second World War. Fleming was always very modest about his contribution to the development of penicillin, and often referred to the ‘Fleming myth’ surrounding the drug. However, as the first person to identify the antibiotic properties of the active substance, Fleming earned the right to name it. He made the discovery after returning to his laboratory after a family holiday and finding that a petri dish containing staphylococci bacteria had been contaminated with an unidentified fungus. The bacteria around the fungus had been destroyed, whereas bacteria that was further away survived. It was at this point that he famously uttered the words, “That’s funny” and began investigating the fungus. Over time Fleming identified that the fungus came from the genus penicillium, and laboratory tests indicated that it could be used to destroy a variety of disease-causing bacteria. However, despite his best efforts he was never able to cultivate the fungus in any significant quantity or isolate the active ingredient. The work of subsequent scientists was therefore vital to the development of the antibiotic, although without Fleming there would have been no fungus to investigate.

Synthetic Biology: Production of Novel Antibiotics - Eriko Takano
https://www.ibiology.org/bioengineering/development-of-new-antibiotics/ Antibiotic resistance is a growing problem worldwide. To address this problem, Eriko Takano and her colleagues are developing methods to produce novel antibiotics using a synthetic biology approach. By performing genome analysis on many microbes, they can identify genes encoding novel biosynthesis pathways that may produce antibiotics. These gene clusters can be transferred to pre-engineered bacterial hosts to optimize drug production. Takano’s lab has developed software systems to search for gene clusters, and model, analyze, optimize and debug antibiotic production. Speaker Biography: Eriko Takano is a Professor at the University of Manchester, where she is Co-Director of the Manchester Synthetic Biology Research Centre SYNBIOCHEM. Takano studied pharmacy at Kitasato University in Tokyo before moving to the UK and receiving her PhD in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of East Anglia and the John Innes Centre. She became an Assistant Professor at the University of Tübingen and then a Rosalind Franklin Fellow and Associate Professor at the University of Groningen. In 2012, she started at the University of Manchester. Her lab develops microbial synthetic biology tools and uses them to produce fine and specialty chemicals.

Change farming and save our antibiotics | Cóilin Nunan | TEDxExeter
Imagine a global health crisis which causes more deaths than cancer. That’s the future we face unless we take action now to stop the rise of antibiotic resistance. Drawing on decades of academic research, Cóilín Nunan shares the action we need to take now to save our antibiotics. Cóilín Nunan is the scientific adviser to the Alliance to Save Our Antibiotics, an alliance of health, medical, environmental and animal-welfare groups working to stop the overuse of antibiotics in livestock farming. He has co-authored numerous reports on antibiotic resistance and antibiotic residues that highlight the human health impact of excessive antibiotic use in intensive livestock farming. This work aims to encourage a move to more responsible use of antibiotics in farming, through better regulation and improvements in production systems, which would also improve animal health and welfare. -- At TEDxExeter 2018 we focussed on making connections - and building bridges. Our speakers challenged us to reflect on how, in this interconnected, interdependent world, global issues affect all of our lives, and our actions affect others. In these turbulent times of shock political outcomes, “fake news”, data breaches, war, mass migration, rapid technological progress and climate change we believe that ideas have the power to change attitudes, lives, and ultimately, the world.

U.S. scientists create ultra-tough antibiotic to fight superbugs
Contact inquiries@nextanimation.com to license this or any News Direct video For story suggestions please contact tips@nextanimation.com.tw U.S. scientists have modified a 60-year-old drug to create an ultra-tough antibiotic. Researchers hope this new antibiotic will be able to fight bacteria that are resistant to drugs currently available on the market. Scientists at Scripps Research Institute modified antibiotic vancomycin so that it can overcome the present resistance and added two ways to kill vancomycin-resistant enterococci bacteria, otherwise known as VRE. “Organisms just can't simultaneously work to find a way around three independent mechanisms of action. Even if they found a solution to one of those, the organisms would still be killed by the other two,” lead researcher Dr. Dale Boger told the BBC. The modified vancomycin is 1,000-fold more powerful than before and has been proven to be able to kill the VRE bacteria in the lab. Vancomycin-resistant enterococci is commonly found in hospitals. It can cause dangerous wound and bloodstream infections. ----------------------------------------­­---------------------------------------­-­---------------- Next Animation Studio’s News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D news animations that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.

Antibiotics Make Us Fat?
"Like hospital patients, US farm animals tend to be confined to tight spaces and dosed with antibiotics. But that's where the similarities end. Hospitals dole out antibiotics to save lives. On America's factory-scale meat farms, the goal is to fatten animals for their date at the slaughterhouse. And it turns out that antibiotics help with the fattening process. Back in the 1940s, scientists discovered that regular low doses of antibiotics increased "feed efficiency"—that is, they caused animals to put on more weight per pound of feed. No one understood why, but farmers seized on this unexpected benefit. By the 1980s, feed laced with small amounts of the drugs became de rigueur as US meat production shifted increasingly to factory farms. In 2009, an estimated 80 percent of the antibiotics sold in the United States went to livestock."* Studies show how antibiotics make people fat...but it's not as direct as you may suspect. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss the research, and how much of the puzzle it may actually be. *Read more from Tom Philpott/ Mother Jones: http://m.motherjones.com/environment/2013/12/can-antibiotics-make-you-fat Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://bit.ly/TYTonYouTube Support The Young Turks by Shopping http://bit.ly/XhuNqO Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://bit.ly/OkX87X Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/

Poultry Production from Start to Finish
In this episode we take a look at the poultry industry. Poultry is Virginia's largest commodity, and it's Rockingham County that was once known as the turkey capital of the world. In fact, today's modern poultry practices of using brooder houses instead of a free range was started by R.B. Strickler and Charles Wampler, Sr. of Harrisonburg. We were given the unique opportunity to see the poultry production process from start to finish, and in this episode, we share that with you. Then Chris Mullins shares tips on growing hearty mums, From the Ground Up. All on on this edition of Virginia Farming.

(All proceeds Dr. Greger receives from the sales of his books, DVDs, and speaking engagements go to support the 501c3 nonprofit that runs NutritionFacts.org.) DESCRIPTION: The Director-General of the World Health Organization warns that we may be facing an end to modern medicine as we know it thanks in part to the mass feeding of antibiotics to farm animals to accelerate growth. This issue, perhaps more than any other, lays to bare the power of moneyed interests to undermine public health. Look at the list of endorsers (http://www.ucsusa.org/assets/documents/food_and_agriculture/pamta-endorsers-by-sector.pdf) of legislation to reform this practice, yet the sway of nearly every single medical organization in the United States is no match for the combined might of Big Ag and Big Pharma.

Rise and fall of the magic bullet | Sam Willcocks | TEDxLSHTM
Antibiotics were once considered the "magic bullet" against infections, and yet the rise of bacterial resistance has changed the game. Sam Willcocks walks us through the rise and fall of antibiotics, and shows us why we need to think carefully about how we harness new technology so that we can continue to do good. Sam Willcocks’ research focuses on understanding host-pathogen interactions to further the knowledge of the virulence mechanisms that cause disease. With a strong background in innate immunology, Sam nows work in areas of bacteriology, molecular biology, and genetics to identify targets that may facilitate future drug design and the creation of vaccine candidates. He has particular interest and expertise in the Biosafety Level III respiratory pathogens, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Burkholderia pseudomallei. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

antiSMASH: Searching for New Antibiotics Using Open Source Tools - Kai Blin
Ever since Alexander Fleming discovered the first antibiotic being produced by a Penicillium mould in 1928, scientists have been searching bacteria and fungi for new substances to combat infectious diseases. In the last 40 years however, only few new substances have been discovered that actually reached the market. In the arms race between bacteria developing new resistances and humanity developing new antibiotics, a more organized approach on drug discovery can keep us from falling behind.

MCT Oil: What Happens Inside Your Body When You Consume MCT’s
Get My Discounted MCT Oil Here: https://www.perfectketo.com/thomas/c8 Please Subscribe for 3-4x Videos Per Week + Live Broadcasts! http://ThomasDeLauer.com MCT Oil: What Happens Inside Your Body When You Consume MCT’s What are MCT’s Long Chain Fatty acids (LCTs) ranging from 12 to 18 carbons long are the predominant form of fat in the American diet - MCTs, however, are composed of only 6 to 10 carbon links Triglycerides are named after their chemical structure, more specifically the length of their fatty acid chains - all triglycerides are made up of a glycerol molecule and 3 fatty acids Because of their shorter chain length, MCTs have a number of unique properties which give them advantages over the more common LCTs MCTs provide about 10% fewer calories than LCTs – 8.3 calories per gram for MCTs versus 9 calories per gram for LCTs Reduced chain length also means that MCTs are more rapidly absorbed by the body and more quickly metabolized and as fuel The result of this accelerated metabolic conversion is that instead of being stored as fat, the calories contained in MCTs are very efficiently converted into fuel for immediate use by organs and muscles MCTs cross the double mitochondrial membrane quickly and do not require the presence of carnitine, unlike LCTs The result is an excess of acetyl-coA, which then follows various metabolic pathways, both in the mitochondria (Krebs Cycle) and in the cytosol, resulting in the production of ketones These are the main medium-chain fatty acids: C6: Caproic acid or hexanoic acid. C8: Caprylic acid or octanoic acid. C10: Capric acid or decanoic acid. C12: Lauric acid or dodecanoic acid Benefits Digestion and Energy MCTs are easily digested and do not require the production and utilization of bile Results in the production of excess acetyl-coA which breaks down into ketones - rapid formation of ketone bodies gives immediate energy to the brain and body MCTs act similar to carbs in that they provide an immediate energy source - however, MCTs don’t raise blood sugar or increase insulin levels as carbs do Weight Loss Compared to other types of oils and fats, MCTs seem to have positive effects on fat burning and weight reduction as it helps increase satiety and even raise the metabolic rate at which the body functions MCTs suppress fat deposition through enhanced thermogenesis and fat oxidation, helping the body produce ketones Antibacterial MCTs are powerful, natural antibiotics that help balance bacteria in the gut MCT’s are known to kill: Streptococcus (which causes strep throat, pneumonia and sinus infections), straphylococcus (which causes food poisoning and urinary tract infections), neisseria (which causes meningitis, gonorrhea and pelvic inflammatory diseases) References 1) NutritonReview.org.

Why I turned into an Alcoholic Carnivore in South Africa
Episode 11 of my south African Adventure !! The bike is finally ready to go, and I'm packing it up for the first trial ride ! If you're wondering why I stopped being a "vegan"- Its because my health was rapidly declining. I was vegan for two years and during that two years, I happened to also experience the worse stress of my life. My body was unable to absorb the nutrients and I became very ill. I lost 80 % of my hair and became very anemic. I chose to start eating meat again because I thought that would help ( it didn't ) . It was a conscious decision to start eating it again and was difficult to change my mind set. When I went vegan- I changed cold turkey. And after I had such a mind shift towards meat. I even tried to test myself and eat it one day and was absolutely repulsed by the taste I once loved . I had watched a very impactful video on the mass meat industry that had changed my mind in an instant. Suddenly- I was no longer eating delicious meat- but I was eating a raw dead animal. So, the switch was easy.. What wasn't easy was starting to eat it again.. Yes, in this video I appear to like it quite a lot.. Once I forced the shift to make myself to eat meat again- the taste came back. Knowing the animals were also "ethically" killed ( not tortured) and free range, and also every part of the animal was used - this made it easier. I still did not eat mass produced meat as this industry makes me sick. All of this meat was hunted and caught locally. After my south Africa trip, I went back to being a vegan ( minus fish) And my taste buds have gone back to dis- liking meat again. My health never did improve- however my hair did grow back- But I might contribute that to the Camel Urine ;) When I travel now- If someone does offer me meat- I try not to refuse it- If I know it is home grown. If that;s all they have and they are willing to share it- I personally think it is rude to refuse, So I will eat a little. I don't believe in torturing animals, or mass production meat/animal product factories. I do not support that in anyway. Especially all the crap they feed the animals and the antibiotics they use- that energy and chemicals is going into your BODY ! Not to mention the poor lives that are been tortured their entire lives and beaten in their last breaths. . But if people want to eat meat- that is their choice. Not anyones' to judge. If you can buy ethically sourced animal products, that is better for you and the environment/animals. Try to make a conscious decision when you purchase your animal products, and know where it comes from and what you'er putting in your bodies.

8 Powerful Herbs That Clear Mucus, fight Infections And Help Repair your Lungs
8 Powerful Herbs That Clear Mucus, fight Infections And Help Repair your Lungs The herbs presented below have been long used in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Native American Remedies to clear the respiratory system and boost its function. Apart from improving your health, they are also capable of healing infections and repairing any damage done to the lungs. Check them out! 1. Licorice Root Thanks to its harmonizing activities, licorice root is present in nearly all formulas in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It possesses soothing properties, which make it able to soften and cleanse the throat`s mucus membranes. Saponins are compounds that loosen the phlegm, which in turn helps the body to eliminate mucus easily. Other compounds found in this herb relieve bronichal spasms, while their anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiviral properties help protect against lung cancer. 2. Coltsfoot Tussilago farfara, also known as coltsfoot, is herb in the daisy family Asteraceae, native to Europe and parts of Asia. It has been long used by Native Americans to keep lung health functioning at optimal level. It has the ability to clear out excessive amounts of mucus as well as to soothe the bronchial tubes and the lungs. It has been also used in treatment of bronchitis, coughs, asthma, and other lung problems. You can either use it as tea or as a tincture. 3. Thyme Thyme`s essential oils posses strong antibiotic, antifungal, and antiseptic properties. Thyme tea has the ability to chase away bacteria and viruses, so it works against both types of infections. It has been used as lung remedy since ancient times, and people still use it today to both prevent and treat bacterial and respiratory tract infections. It also works as daily tool to boost lungs` function. 4. Oregano Oregano is packed with flavonoids, terpenes, and carvacrol, all of which act as natural decongestants. Rosmarninic acid is a potent histamine reducer that has a direct effect on the nasal passage and the respiratory tract. Oregano oil is even more powerful and is known for its ability to treat pneumonia, an infection that is typically caused by fungi, viruses, or bacteria. Adding a few drops of oregano oil to a glass of warm water or milk is enough to detoxify your lungs. 5. Lobelia Lobelia is praised as one of the best herbal remedies known to mankind. Extracts are packed with lobeline, a compound that helps fight off drug-resistant tumor cells, stimulate the production of epinephrine, and loosen phlegm. Therefore, the fact that this herb helps relax the airways and allow you to breathe easily doesn’t come as surprise. 6. Eucalyptus Due to its ability to soothe the throat, this nice-smelling herb is often added to cough syrups and lozenges. Cineole, a compound in eucalyptus, is a natural expectorant that fights off congestions, boosts immunity, and eases coughs. 7. Peppermint Peppermint contains menthol, a compound with soothing properties that relax the muscles in the respiratory tract and help you breathe much easier. It also has antihistamine effect, which makes it an amazing decongestant, relieving the throat and breaking up mucus. Most inhalants and chest balms use menthol to relieve congestion. 8. Sage Sage tea is a traditional treatment for coughs and sore throat, and is widely used around the world. In addition to this, this herb also helps expel mucous from the respiratory tract, treat lung disorders, and even dispel sinusitis. How to Use These Herbs Most of these herbs can be made into tea, bought as essential oils, or added to your meals to treat congestion and cleanse the lungs. https://youtu.be/bjy3spyiBLw

Penicillin: Discovery, Benefits and Resistance
Penicillin is a drug used to fight bacterial infection. Its accidental discovery ushered in a new age of medicine. It was hailed as a "miracle drug" that would eradicate infectious diseases. Today, there are many types of natural and synthetic types of penicillin, which are used to treat a wide range of ailments. However, over the years, some bacteria have become resistant to penicillin, making some infections difficult to treat. It isn't really known who first realized that mold contained medicinal qualities, but it is acknowledged that ancient Egyptians would poultice wounds with moldy bread, according to the American Chemical Society (ACS). Alexander Fleming, a professor of bacteriology in London, is credited with discovering penicillin in 1928. Returning from vacation, he started cleaning up his messy lab and noticed that some petri dishes containing Staphylococcus bacteria had been contaminated with a mold, Penicillium notatum, which was inhibiting the growth of the bacteria, according to Dr. Howard Markel in a column for PBS NewHour. Fleming researched the juice produced by the mold and determined that it killed many types of bacteria. His team then went on to isolate pure penicillin from the mold juice. "When I woke up just after dawn on September 28, 1928, I certainly didn't plan to revolutionize all medicine by discovering the world's first antibiotic, or bacteria killer. But I guess that was exactly what I did," Fleming later wrote about his discovery. Fleming didn't have the resources to fully develop his discovery. Other bacteriologists tried to purify penicillin but failed. Finally, in 1939, Howard Florey, a pathology professor at Oxford University, read Fleming's paper in the British Journal of Experimental Pathology, and he and his colleagues worked to purify and create useable penicillin. After churning out around 132 gallons (500 liters) of mold filtrate per week and testing on animals, they were finally able to try the new drug on a human. On February 12, 1941, Albert Alexander got the first dose of penicillin, according to the ACS. The treatment started to heal him of a life-threatening infection in just a few days. Unfortunately, the Oxford team ran out of the drug before Alexander was completely healed, and he died. The first successful treatment happened a year later in 1942. It was given to Anne Miller, a patient at New Haven Hospital in Connecticut who had suffered a miscarriage and developed an infection that led to blood poisoning. During World War II, penicillin was mass-produced and used to fight infections among soldiers. Throughout history, infections had killed more soldiers than battle injuries, Markel wrote. "In World War I, the death rate from bacterial pneumonia was 18 percent; in WWII, it fell to less than 1 percent." In 1945, Fleming, Florey and Florey's teammate, Ernst Chain, received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their discovery of penicillin. Penicillin is given to patients with an infection caused by bacteria. As an antibiotic, it inhibits the growth of bacteria or kills it. It does this by preventing bacterial enzymes from creating cell wall growth. It also activates other enzymes so that they will break down the cell walls of microorganisms, as well, according to Encyclopedia Britannica. Sometimes penicillin is also prescribed to help medical problems not related to bacterial infections, such as leptospirosis, chlamydia in pregnant women, helicobacter pylori-associated gastritis or peptic ulcer disease, gas gangrene, Lyme disease and typhoid fever, according to the Mayo Clinic. Different kinds of penicillin are used for various infections. Some types of penicillin are amoxicillin, ampicillin, penicillin G and penicillin V. Though penicillin has saved many lives, it isn't always helpful for everyone. For example, some people have penicillin allergies that can cause hives, rashes, itching, anaphylaxis and other symptoms. Beyond allergies, penicillin is becoming less useful over time. At least 2 million people in the United States become infected with bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics each year, and at least 23,000 people die as a result, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Simply using antibiotics creates resistance, according to the CDC. While antibiotics kill bacteria causing illness, they also kill "good" bacteria that protect the body from infection. The drug-resistant bacteria grow and take over, and some bacteria give their drug resistance to other bacteria. Resistant germs spread to other patients from unclean hands or surfaces.

Usnea Natures Antibiotic
Usnea Natures Antibiotic is a common sight for anyone who walks in the woods. It is the green tangly mass that hangs down from the dead trunks and branches of trees, especially pine trees, sometimes called "old man's beard. The appearance of usnea like a mass of cloth fibers immediately suggested itself to primitive people as a useful topical application to wounds and skin inflammation; it can be readily collected and pressed down to make a dressing. This turned out to be a valuable application not just in terms of its structure, but also because usnea contains potent antibacterial components that will help prevent wounds from getting infected and, thereby, contributes to more rapid healing. As a topical antiseptic, it has been used recently in making sophisticated skin creams, vaginal inserts, and mouth washes. Antiviral & Antifungal: Usnea is active against a number of viruses that present sores and lesions including herpes simplex, polyomavirus (a tumor virus), Junin virus, Tacaribe virus, and Epstein-Barr. It may be used as a wash for the treatment of Impetigo (staph or strep infections of the skin). Usnea has also shown to be effective as an antifungal against Candida albicans. In vitro research strongly supports Usnea's antimicrobial properties. Other Uses: Usnea has been reported to be active against a number of parasitical disease organisms as well as used as an antiproliferant for a number of cancer cell lines. Usnea also has shown anecdotal usefulness in the treatment of difficult to treat fish infections in aquariums and ponds. Usnea barbata has been used in cosmetic production for its antimicrobial and antifungal properties as a preservative and deodorant.

Super bacteria-targeting microbes found in Korea's Nakdong River
슈퍼박테리아 잡는 토종 미생물 낙동강에서 발견...천연 항균제 새길 Microbes that target antibiotic-resistant superbugs have been discovered in Korean waters. The finding is expected to have broad applications... and could serve as a natural agent to fight common ailments. Park Se-young has the details. At the Nakdong River in the city of Sangju in Gyeongsangbuk-do Province, a researcher collects samples of microbes. He and other members of the research team have found nearly 200 trillion microbes in the contaminated water, including harmful bacteria like colon bacillus and salmonella. They've also found Paucibacter CR182 and four other species that have the ability to inhibit the growth of antibiotic-resistant superbacteria, ...which cause hard-to-cure diseases like pneumonia and septicemia. "We separated the microbes from the water sample and discovered, through numerous screenings, microbes with antimicrobial effects." The newly discovered microbes are ideal for use as natural antimicrobial agents, feed additives and even health foods. The research team, which secured the basic technology for mass production of the microbes and applied for a patent, will continue its research and expand the microbes' use.

Tim Ferriss on Ketosis, Microbiome, Lyme Disease, and Biomarkers
Dr. Rhonda Patrick interviews 3-time New York Times best-selling author Tim Ferriss. They discuss what Tim's leading blood biomarkers are that he focuses on optimizing, the importance of tracking glucose along with ketones to make sure you don't confuse non-nutritional ketosis with the real deal, Tim's personal experience beating lyme disease and his insights on recovery, the origin and cause of "lyme hysteria", and how some of the symptoms of what is described as "chronic lyme disease" may actually be caused by a disrupted gut microbiome from uninterrupted, long-term use of antibiotics, what the "minimum effective dose" is when it comes to working out, and a little bit about Tim's workout routine and much much more.

Chicken Dioxins, Viruses, or Antibiotics?
Subscribe to Dr. Greger’s free nutrition newsletter at https://www.nutritionfacts.org/subscribe and get a free recipe from his new HOW NOT TO DIE COOKBOOK. (All proceeds Dr. Greger receives from the sales of his books, DVDs, and speaking engagements go to support the 501c3 nonprofit that runs NutritionFacts.org.) DESCRIPTION: The association between poultry and cancer may be explained by the presence in chickens' and turkeys' flesh of industrial carcinogens such as dioxins, oncogenic (cancer-causing) viruses, and/or the drugs that were fed to the birds. Have a question about this video? Leave it in the comment section at ‪http://nutritionfacts.org/videos/chicken-dioxins-viruses-or-antibiotics/ and I'll try to answer it! See the "prequel," EPIC Findings on Lymphoma (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/epic-findings-on-lymphoma/), and the one before it on general cancer rates. For more on industrial pollutants in meat, see Vegetarians Versus Healthy Omnivores (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/vegetarians-versus-healthy-omnivores/), Harvard's Meat and Mortality Studies (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/harvards-meat-and-mortality-studies/) and Prevention Is Better Than Cured Meat (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/prevention-is-better-than-cured-meat/). For more on cancer-causing viruses, see Breast Cancer Survival, Butterfat, and Chicken (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/breast-cancer-survival-butterfat-and-chicken/), Meat Additives to Diminish Toxicity (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/meat-additives-to-diminish-toxicity/) and Carcinogens in the Smell of Frying Bacon (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/carcinogens-in-the-smell-of-frying-bacon/). And for more on drug residues in meat, see Drug Residues in Meat (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/drug-residues-in-meat/). The mass use of antibiotics in chicken feed may also be contributing to the emergence of antibiotic resistant bacteria (for example, see U.S. Meat Supply Flying at Half Staph - http://nutritionfacts.org/video/u-s-meat-supply-flying-at-half-staph/).
