WHO warns of growing drug resistance in sexually transmitted gonorrhea that infect millions

June 6, 2012GENEVA - A potentially dangerous sexually transmitted disease that infects millions of people each year is growing resistant to drugs and could soon become untreatable, the World Health Organization said Wednesday. The U.N. health agency is urging governments and doctors to step up surveillance of antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea, a bacterial infection that can cause inflammation, infertility, pregnancy complications and, in extreme cases, lead to maternal death. Babies born to mothers with gonorrhea have a 50 percent chance of developing eye infections that can result in blindness. “This organism has basically been developing resistance against every medication we’ve thrown at it,” said Dr. Manjula Lusti-Narasimhan, a scientist in the agency’s department of sexually transmitted diseases. This includes a group of antibiotics called cephalosporins currently considered the last line of treatment. “In a couple of years it will have become resistant to every treatment option we have available now,” she told The Associated Press in an interview ahead of WHO’s public announcement on its global action plan’ to combat the disease. Lusti-Narasimhan said the new guidance is aimed at ending complacency about gonorrhea and encouraging researchers to speed up their hunt for a new cure. Once considered a scourge of sailors and soldiers, gonorrhea — known colloquially as the clap — became easily treatable with the discovery of penicillin. Now, it is again the second most common sexually transmitted infection after chlamydia. The global health body estimates that of the 498 million new cases of curable sexually transmitted infections worldwide, gonorrhea is responsible for some 106 million infections annually. It also increases the chances of infection with other diseases, such as HIV. “It’s not a European problem or an African problem, it’s really a worldwide problem,” said Lusti-Narasimhan. Scientists believe overuse or incorrect use of antibiotics, coupled with the gonorrhea bacteria’s astonishing ability to adapt, means the disease is now close to becoming a super bug. Bacteria that survive antibiotic treatment due to a mutation that makes them resistant then quickly spread their genes in an accelerated process of natural selection. This is a general problem affecting all antibiotics, but gonorrhea is particularly quick to adapt, said Lusti-Narasimhan. “If it didn’t do so much damage it would actually be a fun organism to study,” she said. Resistance to cephalosporins was first reported in Japan, but more recently has also been detected in Britain, Australia, France, Sweden and Norway. As these are all countries with well-developed health systems, it is likely that cephalosporin-resistant strains are also circulating undetected elsewhere. –Star Tribune

    Don’t buy a freaking soda larger than 16 oz. or you will break the law [ in NYC ] because you would be killing yourself but go ahead and be promiscuous, adulterous, and down right perverted at any age and be haled as a hero as you endanger the lives of all you touch with disease.

  2. Azza says:

    I live in north west england and heard on the radio today that cases of gonorrhea have tripled in the past couple of months

  3. Neko. says:

    This is the reason God said not to have sex before marriage…anyway, since people wanted to have their way, this happened. Should have listened to Him.

      or they can “man up” and admit they made a grievous sin and deal with the consequences but there is still time to be saved! God will heal those who are His!! \o/

  4. AWM says:

    What amazes me is that at work we see the same groups of people treated (generally successfully) over and over and over for the same STDs.
    Since the majority are on the government dole, it’s at no cost to them and lifestyle change would never occurr to them.
    Eventually treatment failures will be the norm, not the exception. That is a guarantee.

    You think the ancient Hebrews were so pure and perfect? They had many wives, concubines, and brothels. Wonder if King Solomon had STD with all those women.

    • Joseph t. Repas says:

      Actually his Father King David is thought to have had it by the way he wrote of his own symptoms in one of his psalms. God did heal him of it but it was thought to have infected him when he married the widow of a man who had dealt with him meanly. Sorry I don’t have more detail on that from the Bible at this moment but it is in there, however , yes, they took on many women of conquered foes in the early days.

    Yet governing rulers and representatives of a Father pyramid even a Pharaoh King pyramid, were in the beginning an androgynous female … so were representatives of the lord day-star hosts …

    This is why it was said “call no man Father” … and there is just so much more minds will need to rethink, relearn and remember …

    Yet after the known fall of man … representatives of a king pyramid, was then male …

    Representatives of a Father sun/core facility were male .. usually the male aspect of an androgynous female Pharaoh … all Junior sun/core facilities were also referred to as a god host … and so were their male representatives … this is where tiles of sons of god came from …

    And in the beginning before beginnings, before the known fall of man … there were no host of the electron kind … if an energy source generated a negative charge it did so without the electron particle … and all things were good …

    For this reason I consider that this growing drug resistance sexually transmitted gonorrhea infecting millions is more due to the electron of negative energy … which are bread by corrupt and negative deeds …

    Electrons are referred to as the sin ions … electrons are even the source of evil thoughts leading to evil and diabolical deeds … they are the source of degenerating states of body mind and energy … low frequencies are easily bombarded by electrons ….

    For in the beginning of all good things … all cosmic hosts were designed, created, empowered and programmed by the CREATOR … and these Divine hosts and representatives were in neuron signature linked with the consciousness of the CREATOR …
