Deadly NDM-1 ‘super-bug’ from India now jumps to Afghanistan

June 9, 2011KABUL — In the June 10 issue of the CDC’s weekly Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) they report of an incident of another antibiotic-resistant “superbug” in an overseas military hospital. For the past several years, military hospitals in the Middle East have been battling a very drug resistant strain of Acinetobacter baumanii, or it was affectionately known over there as “Iraqibacter”. Now it is reported that a strain of the gram-negative bacilli, Providencia stuartii, which possesses the NDM-1 gene, has been isolated at the US/coalition medical facility in Bagram, Afghanistan. The patient was an Afghan who was transferred from a hospital in Kabul. He suffered severe burns and respiratory injuries from a natural gas explosion. Just last week, doctors found a case of NDM-1 in Canada. –Examiner

    With all the depleted uranium munitions used in these countries – and now even in Libya – this should not be surprising. Radiation (and these ARE nuclear weapons, folks) can cause mutations in DNA. It not only produces deformities in humans and animals, but it makes sense that it could cause bacteria and virus strains to mutate. It could also result in new forms of disease entirely. These could be resistant to any of our known medications.
