Post-Antibiotic World | Indonesia's Palm Bomb (VICE on HBO: Season 3, Episode 6)
We rely on antibiotics to treat everything from stomach bugs to skin rashes to bronchitis. In fact, we’ve been overusing them—and in doing so giving rise to new crop of dangerous bacterial infections that can’t be treated by anything we can get at the pharmacy. The more we use antibiotics, the more we help these superbugs build up their resistance. It’s an evolutionary battle, and the humans are losing. The projections are dire: according to some experts, antibiotic-resistant bacteria could kill 10 million people a year by 2050, surpassing cancer deaths. With their backs to the wall, scientists are now racing to find new natural sources of anti-bacterial compounds. VICE’s Thomas Morton travels along as they search deep in the jungle and deep underground for the life-saving drugs we so desperately need. Then: palm oil is used in almost all of the foods we eat and most of our household products—everything from packaged bread to cookies to toothpaste and soap. Production of palm oil has surged as a cheap alternative to trans fats. But as demand grows, growers in Indonesia are pushing farther and farther onto rainforest land, torching the forests as they go. The mass-burning of Indonesian jungles poses a major threat to wildlife, indigenous populations, and our global climate. VICE’s Ben Anderson goes to Indonesia to see the realities of the palm oil boom up close.

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.

Oxytetracycline - Terramycin Antibiotics: "Miracle from Mold" 1952 Pfizer
NEW VERSION with improved video & sound: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Y9TdtrHM8w more at http://scitech.quickfound.net/ "Gives the scientific story behind terramycin, one of the wonder drugs." Public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxytetracycline Oxytetracycline was the second of the broad-spectrum tetracycline group of antibiotics to be discovered. Oxytetracycline works by interfering with the ability of bacteria to produce essential proteins. Without these proteins, the bacteria cannot grow, multiply and increase in numbers. Oxytetracycline therefore stops the spread of the infection and the remaining bacteria are killed by the immune system or eventually die. Oxytetracycline is a broad-spectrum antibiotic, active against a wide variety of bacteria. However, some strains of bacteria have developed resistance to this antibiotic, which has reduced its effectiveness for treating some types of infections. Oxytetracycline is still used to treat infections caused by Chlamydia (e.g. the chest infection psittacosis, the eye infection trachoma, and the genital infection urethritis) and infections caused by Mycoplasma organisms (e.g. pneumonia). Oxytetracycline is also used to treat acne, due to its activity against the bacteria on the skin that cause acne (Propionibacterium acnes). It is used to treat flare-ups of chronic bronchitis, due to its activity against the bacteria usually responsible, Haemophilus influenzae. Oxytetracycline may also be used to treat other rarer infections, such as those caused by a group of micro-organisms called rickettsiae (e.g. Q fever). To make sure the bacteria causing an infection are susceptible to it, a tissue sample is usually taken, for example a swab from the infected area, or a urine or blood sample. History It was first found near Pfizer laboratories in a soil sample yielding the soil actinomycete, Streptomyces rimosus by Finlay et al. In 1950, a celebrated American chemist, Robert B Woodward, worked out the chemical structure of oxytetracycline, enabling Pfizer to mass produce the drug under the trade name, Terramycin. This discovery by Woodward was a major advancement in tetracycline research and paved the way for the discovery of an oxytetracycline derivative, doxycycline, which is one of the most popularly used antibiotics today. Indications Oxytetracycline, like other tetracyclines, is used to treat many infections, both common and rare (see Tetracycline antibiotics group). Its better absorption profile makes it preferable to tetracycline for moderately severe acne at a dosage of 250--500 mg four times a day for usually six to eight weeks at a time, but alternatives should be sought if no improvement occurs by three months...

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.

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.

Chemists to aid the community for open antimicrobial drug discovery (CO-ADD)
The antibiotic pipeline is broken, with few new antibiotics and little current pharmaceutical company research. Antibacterial drugs have unique properties that are vastly different to drugs developed for other indications. CO-ADD believes that the laboratories of academic chemists contain unique compounds that have never been tested for their antimicrobial potential. CO-ADD is a global open-access screening initiative to uncover untested chemical diversity. CO-ADD will provide free antimicrobial testing for any interested academic researcher. It builds upon antimicrobial expertise at The University of Queensland, and aims to unearth fresh chemical diversity for the treatment of microbial infections. CO-ADD will test researcher's compounds for their ability to kill pathogenic bacteria and fungi. We are asking chemists and academics across the world if they have the next antibiotic? CO-ADD's program coordinator Dr Mark Blaskovich invites chemists to join the Community for Open Antimicrobial Drug Discovery (CO-ADD) to uncover new antibiotics. Send your compounds at www.co-add.org. ACSPOD at the 249th ACS (American Chemical Society) conference in Denver - March 2015.
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.

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/

28th September 1928: Penicillin discovered by Alexander Fleming
On the 28th September 1928, the bacteriologist Alexander Fleming laid for the foundation for a revolution in modern medicine when he discovered the world’s first antibiotic. 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.

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.

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.

Food Inc. Chicken Farm
A fed up chicken farmer invites the camera in to film the poor health of her chickens as a result of the abnormal growth. She discusses the use of antibiotics in feed. Please read update below! Update: For an inspiring update on the situation of Carole Morison, the woman in this video, please go see this follow-up short documentary posted by FixFoodOrg: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0D8uiIIIBw You will see that, indeed, there is another way and that this woman made liars out of those who vilified her in the comments, as well as out of those who lack the humanity or imagination to see that things can be done another way. Yes, Perdue terminated her contract shortly after she had the courage to speak out. Today, Carole is farming as a free woman able to exercise values beyond the bottom line, growing chickens in a manner more healthy for Carole, for the chickens, for the environment, and for the people who eat the chickens. Go read and watch more at the youtube post above and take heart.

What Would Happen in a World WITHOUT ANTIBIOTICS
The first antibiotic, penicillin, was discovered in 1928 by Sir Alexander Fleming and they are used to fight bacterial diseases and infections. The problem is that they are overprescribed and often prescribed to fight viruses, like the common cold and influenza, despite the fact that antibiotics aren’t effective against viruses. →Subscribe for new videos every day! https://www.youtube.com/user/toptenznet?sub_confirmation=1 → → GET A T-SHIRT - http://www.toptenz.net/toptenz-t-shirts →Top 10 Objects That Were Clearly Invented Just to Annoy Physics: https://youtu.be/0MVGeRa-vLo →Simon's VLOG: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvqt8j7DfPmveJp3UOk9XTg Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from TopTenzNet!

(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.

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.

Chaitan Khosla (Stanford) Part 1: An Introduction to Polyketide Assembly Lines
https://www.ibiology.org/biochemistry/polyketide/ Talk Overview: Polyketide antibiotics include many of the most commonly used antibiotics in medicine today such as erythromycin, rapamycin and avermectin. In Part 1, Dr. Khosla describes the modular enzymes that synthesize these antibiotics, with each module adding to a growing polyketide chain in an assembly-line manner. Using the enzyme 6-deoxyerythronolide B synthase (DEBS) as an example, he walks us through the multiple steps from simple precusor to complex product. Khosla also explains that a vast improvement in DNA sequencing in the past decade has led to the identification of many gene clusters encoding polyketide assembly lines. The products of these assembly lines are not known, however, suggesting that new and possibly useful antibiotics are yet to be discovered. Many of the polyketide assembly line enzymes are found in unusual bacteria or other organisms. In Part 2, Khosla explains that he and his colleagues have expressed the DNA encoding DEBS in E.coli. When the appropriate precursors and energy sources are added to these modified E.coli, they efficiently produce 6-deoxyerythronolide B. This system facilitates the study of each step of the DEBS assembly line both in vitro, using proteins purified from the system, and in vivo. Using these tools, Khosla and colleagues are able to probe the stereospecificity and side chain specificity of the assembly line. They are also learning how to efficiently rewire individual modules to produce novel polyketide products. In Part 3, Khosla asks how nature ensures that the product of one module in a polyketide synthesis pathway is passed on to the correct, subsequent module in the pathway? How is it that reactive intermediates are directed vectorially along the assembly line? Khosla explains that vectorial specificity is due to the protein-protein interactions of the faces of the different protein modules in the pathways. Speaker Biography: Chaitan Khosla is Professor of Chemical Engineering, Chemistry and Biochemistry at Stanford University. Khosla received his B. Tech from the Indian Institute of Technology, his Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology and he was a post-doctoral fellow at the John Innes Centre in the U.K. Khosla’s research interests bring together the fields of chemistry and medicine. His lab uses assembly line polyketide synthases as a system to investigate the potential to program biosynthetic pathways to produce new and different antibiotics. Another area of research in Khosla’s lab focuses on understanding the molecular underpinnings of celiac disease. Specifically the possibility that transglutaminase2, the main autoantigen in celiac disease, may be a target for drug development. Khosla’s work has been recognized with numerous awards and honors including election to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering.

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.
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.

It's Time to Save Antibiotics (US PIRG)
Originally Published on Feb 11, 2015 at USPIRGvideos At least 23,000 Americans die every year from antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns that the widespread overuse of antibiotics on factory farms is making them less effective. Medical experts, including from the World Health Organization, now warn that if we don’t stop the overuse of antibiotics they could stop working -- with potentially grave consequences for public health. Antibiotics are meant to be given in precise doses to treat specific types of infections. When they are used in mass quantities by farming operations it increases the likelihood that all kinds of bacteria, including the ones that make people sick, will develop resistance, and our life saving medicines won't work. We must urge President Obama's task force to push for more stringent regulations about antibiotic use on factory farms in their five-year action plan. Join our effort to convince the Obama Administration to stop the overuse of antibiotics on healthy farm animals!

MRSA Superbugs in Meat
The emergence of pathogens resistant to even our antibiotics of last resort has raised the specter of a “post-antibiotic age” in which drugs to fight infections may be useless. This has focused attention on the mass use of antibiotics in farm animal feed to promote growth and prevent infection in high density production.

(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.) I know I’ve already covered this before, but it continues to shock me that the meat industry can get away with something so forcefully and universally condemned by the public health community. What other industrial sector could get away with putting people at such risk? It speaks to the combined might of the livestock industry and the pharmaceutical industry in holding sway over our democratic process no matter what the human health consequences.

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.

Cat fish preservation in Assam - hardly a fish that needs conservation!
What are catfish? What is its current condition in India? How is it beneficial to farmers? What are the problems faced in the process of preservation of catfish? It is becoming harder to obtain broodstock because of diminishing natural resources and no one is rearing these fish. Thai Mangoor fish are being reared instead, which are harmful to our environment and the government has already banned the rearing of this fish. So, we should not rear these fish and should rear the Indian Catfish instead because it is a very useful fish. It has good quality flesh and it does not have many bones. It just has one main bone in the centre. It is kept alive in the markets before selling, which is why one is assured of the good quality of the meat and has a very good value. One can even rear catfish in little water, in small ponds, in ponds where other fish cannot be reared or in ponds with less sunlight. One can also earn a large amount of money by selling these fish. It is slightly tough to obtain catfish eggs, but every farmer can rear catfish. There are catfish breeding centres where eggs can be obtained in June or July. One can put 40,000 to 60,000 eggs per hectare. One can feed them by mixing 50 percent fish meal with 50 percent rice, after boiling. It is better to feed them at night, because these fish tend to eat at night. If you feed them at night, they grow well. In 6-8 months, they become suitable for selling. In a year, each fish becomes approximately 100-150 grams. If they are looked after properly, 40,000 to 60,000 fish per hectare weigh approximately 4-5 tonnes. If this happens, one farmer can earn 1.5 to 2 lacs a year. What diseases can afflict these fish and how does one cure them? If they are looked after properly, they do not contract diseases. In winter, one should put 250 kilograms of lime per hectare in the pond and the water in the pond should be changed if the water turns green in colour. If they do, however, contract a disease, 10 mg. wide spectrum fungicide and 5 mg. antibiotics should be mixed into their food. They can survive in one foot of water. The cat fish is an Indian fish. It is called a cat fish because it has whiskers and it can walk on the ground. It can derive oxygen from the air from outside water also A case is being made out for conservation of the indigenous Catfish species of India, as opposed to encouraging the breeding of exotic varieties.

Echinacea Benefits~ "King" Antibiotic, Blood Purification, Immune Stimulation~
~Purple coneflower stimulates the overall activity of the cells responsible for fighting all kinds of infection. Unlike antibiotics, which directly attack bacteria, Purple coneflower makes our own immune cells more efficient at attacking bacteria, viruses and abnormal cells, including cancer cells. It increases the number and activity of immune system cells including anti-tumor cells, promotes T-cell activation, stimulates new tissue growth for wound healing and reduces inflammation in arthritis and inflammatory skin conditions. ~The most consistently proven effect of Purple coneflower is in stimulating phagocytosis (the consumption of invading organisms by white blood cells and lymphocytes). Extracts of Purple coneflower can increase phagocytosis by 20-40%. ~Purple coneflower also stimulates the production of interferon as well as other important products of the immune system, including "Tumor Necrosis Factor", which is important to the body's response against cancer. Purple coneflower also inhibits an enzyme (hyaluronidase) secreted by bacteria to help them gain access to healthy cells. Research in the early 1950's showed that Purple coneflower could completely counteract the effect of this enzyme, helping to prevent infection when used to treat woundsAlthough Purple coneflower is usually used internally for the treatment of viruses and bacteria, it is now being used more and more for the treatment of external wounds. It also kills yeast and slows or stops the growth of bacteria and helps to stimulate the growth of new tissue. It combats inflammation too, further supporting its use in the treatment of wounds. HISTORY AND FOLKLORE Echinacea was used at length by Native Americans and by traditional herbalists in the United States and in Canada. One of the first written accounts was by an equestrian from Louisiana who used this herb topically on horses. According to the ethnobotanical work, Uses of Plants by the Indians of the Missouri River Region, written in 1914 by Melvin Gilmore, "echinacea seems to have been used as a remedy for more ailments than any other plant." A variety of tribes, including the Pawnee, Dakota, Omaha-Winnebego relied heavily upon this plant. It was used for situations ranging from swellings to distemper in horses. This healing herb was administered as a fresh juice, herbal smudge or smoke, and often either the leaf or root was simply chewed on. Echinacea was used traditionally for supporting the immune system and also for topical use. The Eclectic physicians in the United States popularized Echinacea in the late 1800's showing particular interest in E. angustifolia. John Uri Lloyd and John King were major proponents of this herb, extolling its virtues far and wide for several years until it became the single most widely used herb by the Eclectics.It was all the rage until the Eclectic schools closed down in the mid 1930's at which point the popularity of echinacea declined in the United States(Western Medicine took over~ ). It fell out of fashion until the 1970's when herbalists resurrected it. However, during this time, E. purpurea was gaining recognition in Germany. Ironically, E. angustifolia was the species that most traditional herbalists and Native Americans used medicinally, yet E. purpurea was the species that the Germans ended up researching and therefore the one that became the most popular, first in Europe, and then in the United States. Thus, the species which had the most substantiated historical evidence, has the least scientific research.As the story goes, in the 1950's the Swiss naturopathic doctor, Dr. Vogel, came to the U.S. to study Echinacea in South Dakota. He brought seeds back which he believed were from E. angustifolia and gave them to a German doctor who planted them and made medicine. Soon it was discovered that the species was actually E. purpurea which is why it became so popular and widely studied in Europe. HERBAL ACTIONS Immune supporting, depurative, vulnerary, lymphatic, sialagogue My videos are not instructional, and make no claims of anything. If one is extremely ill seek advice of natural health care provider. Thank you~ Have a wonderful day. Stay tuned for Shilajit. This is a miraculous substance that very well may change your life.
Challenges of Antibiotic Resistance
The Centers for Disease Control estimate that each year in the United States, more than 2 million people are infected with an antibiotic-resistant infection. Melanie Harvey, Associate Professor of Chemistry, and Heather Seitz, Associate Professor of Biology, team up to present the current reality and future challenges of antibiotic resistance. They'll discuss the history of antibiotics, the decline in the discovery of new antibiotics, causes of antibiotic resistance, steps the public can take to prevent antibiotic resistance, and the research being done to develop new antibiotics.
