WHO names 12 bacteria that pose the greatest threat to human health | Society | The Guardian
Health experts have previously warned that resistance to the drugs that are used to fight infections could cause a bigger threat to mankind than cancer.

If antibiotics lose their effectiveness, key medical procedures – including organ transplantation, caesarean sections, joint replacements and chemotherapy – could become too dangerous to perform.

About 700,000 people around the world die annually due to drug-resistant infections and, if no action is taken, it has been estimated that such infections will kill 10m people a year by 2050. &! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-39104411

Superbugs are on track to kill 10 million people by 2050 if things don’t change—fast
[under reported ] Today, 23,000 Americans die each year from infections caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Across the world, the estimated annual mortality rate is 700,000. If these trends continue, by 2050, 10 million people globally will die each year, as the potent diseases of previous centuries return to their old force, according to the Review on Antimicrobial Resistance. In 2012, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported an estimated 450,000 new cases of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis. The emergence of multiple drug-resistant pneumonia and E. coli bacteria strains are predicted to contribute significantly to increased mortalities due to their ability to spread rapidly through populations.

'Almost too late': fears of global superbug crisis in wake of antibiotic misuse | Society | The Guardian
Despite European Union regulations aiming to cut back on the unnecessary use of antibiotics, Dr Brown believes it will take more than just legislation to tackle the superbug crisis. Market forces will need to be compelled to cut usage, perhaps when prompted by a shift in public opinion, he said. “Those with a vested interest find ways around legislation. So, in addition to public policy we will need also the power of market forces,” he added. “When the public start demanding meat that has not seen antibiotics - because they understand that the meat may contain antibiotic resistant bacteria - only then will real progress be made. We need education about the threat.”

Bacteria that resist 'last antibiotic' found in UK - BBC News
[ over 80% of antibiotic use - livestock farming. also use of colistin. self-regulated. ] Bacteria that resist the most common antibiotic of last resort - colistin - have been discovered in the UK. Officials say the threat to human health is low, but is under ongoing review. Scientists warned the world was on the cusp of a post-antibiotic era when such resistance was discovered in China last month. Now checks have discovered the same resistance on three farms and in samples of human infections. [...] Colistin-resistance was discovered in fifteen of them, including samples of Salmonella and E. Coli. [...] The DNA that gives bacteria resistance to colistin - the mcr-1 gene - can spread rapidly between species. The concern is that colistin-resistance will now find its way into other superbugs to create infections that doctors cannot treat. //&! youtu.be/M2xZBngTIas //&! bit.ly/1O5oHWa //&! bit.ly/1MW3FYW //&! bbc.in/1PkB6G9 //&! 50-50 chance to salvage situation - bit.ly/1Zmx8Qg

Dorset and North, East and West Devon were the worst hit for the infection with 629 and 612 cases each between September 2014 and September 2015. Public Health England figures show there were 39,604 from September 2014 to September 2015, compared with 38,291 for the same period the year before. The health authority said it was working to reduce the rate. [...] [BBQ?] July was the worst month of 2015 for E. coli with 3,371 cases. Public Health England said the E. coli infection was one of the most common bloodstream infections in the UK. //&! http://nutritionfacts.org/?s=food+poisoning

17m birds slaughtered in UK alone each week. // " You are producing them more slowly." << That is how we talk about animal lives. & UK Regulator: "its the job of the industry to crack this problem." (neoliberal stance, please self-regulate yourself) [...] "It's a judgement call what we publish. [...] we don't want consumers to be mislead or confused" < that is out of the book of repeat messages from the food lobby. // TORIES, nasty party. Like Osborne tax credit cut is a "judgement call" in his own words in-front of select committee. // http://nutritionfacts.org/?s=chicken // consumer ask for those "standards" because they ask for lower prices. and unregulated capitalism will short shrift to make more profit no matter what. even if it is just a penny. // Lack of compassion.

Multiresistente Keime: Weniger MRSA, mehr ESBL - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Resistenzrate bei einem der häufigsten multiresistenten Erreger, dem MRSA (Methicillin-resistenter Staphylococcus aureus), geht laut RKI in Deutschland stetig zurück. Die Resistenzrate bei VRE (Vancomycin-resistente Enterokokken) bleibt seit einigen Jahren mit Schwankungen auf konstantem Niveau, das jedoch über dem europäischen Durchschnitt liegt. Bei anderen Erregern wie den ESBL (Beta-Lactamase produzierende Enterobakterien) gibt es einen leichten, aber stetigen Anstieg.

The last antibiotic: Drug companies run out of weapons against the very same superbugs they helped create
Just how bad is the situation? Even Dr. Margaret Chan, the director general of the World Health Organization, couldn't deny the reality of the situation. "Things as common as strep throat or a child's scratched knee could once again kill," she said in a recent keynote address (http://www.who.int/dg/speeches/2012/amr_20120314/en/index.html). "Antimicrobial resistance is on the rise in Europe, and elsewhere in the world. We are losing our first-line antimicrobials... For patients infected with some drug-resistant pathogens, mortality has been shown to increase by around 50%," she said.

[...]

Prospects for turning this situation around look dim. A post-antibiotic era means, in effect, an end to modern medicine as we know it.
