A New Class of Antibiotics Found in DIRT.....Capable of killing DRUG RESISTANT Disease causing Bacteria...WOW
We have US Researchers stating that they have discovered a new Class of Antibiotics that are capable of killing drug resistant disease causing bacteria. This new Antibiotic class is called MALACIDINS (short for Metegenomic acidic Lipopeptide antibiotic-cidins). They are stating that it has been isolated from bacteria that live in soil.
The professors at Rockefeller University in New York that they have analyzed DNA, from more than 1000 soil samples, and these are some of the results that they are getting. When you look at what the CDC says in terms of estimates for each year they say that at least 2 million people in the USA become infected with bacteria that is resistant to antibiotics, and that at least 23 thousands of those people die each year as a result, of those infections.
The potential for this is key and life saving, and offers so much new hope for the future. This is a positive in a world so full of many negatives. Just wanted to share the hope with you. Who knew that everyday dirt can help us.
