(NaturalNews) The first person ever to fall victim to the so-called "post-antibiotic era" -- a New Zealand man recently died from a novel bacterial strain that is fully resistant to every known antibiotic -- has sparked fresh concerns about what some are now referring to as the real-life zombie apocalypse. Drug-resistant bacteria, warns John Aziz from The Week, is probably humanity's biggest threat for which there are currently no solutions in sight, and this could very soon have devastating consequences unlike anything the world has ever seen.
The advent of drug-resistant bacteria is nothing new, as this phenomenon has been occurring ever since the first man-made antibiotics hit the scene back in the 1940s. But the tendency of pathogens to continually adapt and develop resistance to the very substances originally designed to kill them has reached a major turning point, as there are simply not enough new antibiotics being developed to tackle all these new and virulent "superbugs." In other words, malignant bacteria are outsmarting the best that modern medicine has to offer, which does not bode well for the future of humanity.
Perhaps most responsible for the rapid uptick in antibiotic resistance is the widespread use of antibiotics in factory farm animals, which accounts for some 80 percent or more of antibiotic use. The administration of antibiotics to healthy livestock for the purpose of bulking them up faster, for instance, a practice that has been taking place since the 1950s, represents just one of the ways in which antibiotics have been widely overprescribed. It is also one of the primary drivers behind the superbug epidemic we are facing today.
"It is not difficult to make microbes resistant to penicillin in the laboratory by exposing them to concentrations not sufficient to kill them," warned Alexander Fleming, the creator of the first antibiotic, penicillin, back in 1945 when he received his Nobel Prize for medicine. "There is the danger that the ignorant man may easily underdose himself and by exposing his microbes to non-lethal quantities of the drug make them resistant."
Aluminum adjuvants, not by far the only problem, but the largest current problem by far.
The answers are there. And how many studies have the CDC done? The answer is ZERO.
Look on this site as well for several aluminum harm scientific studies and as well generalized information on aluminum.
You can NOT inject neurotoxins and expect any other result! And you have Paul Offit claiming that injected aluminum adjuvants are detoxed frrom the body in the same way and at the same rate as injected aluminum salts.
Try and find any studies to show that to be true, they do not exist. Got to the CHOP site and look; nothing but Paul Offit style misguided talk, and NO physiological human study science to back it up!

A pensioner has been arrested after police suspected she was planning to take her husband to Switzerland to commit assisted suicide.
It is believed the woman, 65, along with her 25 year-old son from Chichester, West Sussex, wanted to travel to the Dignitas clinic in Zurichso the ill man, 71, could end his life.
The son was also detained by police.
Officers are investigating whether any crime has been committed and are having the man’s mental capacity assessed to see whether he could have made the decision to go on his own. Details of his condition remain unclear.
A Sussex Police spokesman said: “The investigation is looking into what steps, if any, the suspects had made in taking the man out of the country.
“If it is confirmed the man had the mental capacity to make decisions for himself then we would not be able to prevent him travelling.

TOKYO — The operator of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant said Saturday it has started pumping out radioactive groundwater to reduce leakage into the Pacific ocean.
Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) began the work after it admitted last month that radioactive groundwater had been seeping out of the plant, confirming long-held suspicions that the sea was being contaminated.
The company said it pumped out 13 tons of groundwater from a well between 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Friday.
By mid-August, TEPCO plans to complete a new system enabling it to pump out 100 tons of groundwater a day. The water will be filtered and recycled to cool the reactors.
But there are growing fears that existing facilities will soon be overwhelmed, as TEPCO scrambles to find ways to process and store waste water.
Apartheid ( Afrikaans pronunciation: [ɐˈpɑːrtɦɛit]; from Afrikaans "the state of being apart") was a system of racial segregation enforced through legislation by the National Party (NP) governments, who were the ruling party from 1948 to 1994, of South Africa, under which the rights of the majority black inhabitants of South Africa were curtailed and Afrikaner minority rule was maintained.
