What causes antibiotic resistance? - Kevin Wu
View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/how-antibiotics-become-resistant-over-time-kevin-wu Right now, you are inhabited by trillions of microorganisms. Many of these bacteria are harmless (or even helpful!), but there are a few strains of ‘super bacteria’ that are pretty nasty -- and they’re growing resistant to our antibiotics. Why is this happening? Kevin Wu details the evolution of this problem that presents a big challenge for the future of medicine. Lesson by Kevin Wu, animation by Brett Underhill.

The Evolution of Bacteria on a “Mega-Plate” Petri Dish (Kishony Lab)
In a creative stroke inspired by Hollywood wizardry, scientists from the Kishony Lab at HMS and Technion (www.technion.ac.il/en/) have designed a simple way to observe how bacteria move as they become impervious to drugs. The experiments are thought to provide the first large-scale glimpse of the maneuvers of bacteria as they encounter increasingly higher doses of antibiotics and adapt to survive—and thrive—in them.

Maryn McKenna: What do we do when antibiotics don’t work any more?
Penicillin changed everything. Infections that had previously killed were suddenly quickly curable. Yet as Maryn McKenna shares in this sobering talk, we've squandered the advantages afforded us by that and later antibiotics. Drug-resistant bacteria mean we're entering a post-antibiotic world — and it won't be pretty. There are, however, things we can do ... if we start right now.

6 Most Powerful Natural Antibiotics Know To Mankind
Antibiotics are a big deal. They treat infections and diseases caused by bacteria. Hospital antibiotics have become one of the most over-prescribed "medicines" today. As a result, people have ruined their digestive systems and ironically, have lowered their natural immunity to all types of infections in the future. Get rid of infections without the digestive destruction, with these 6 powerful natural antibiotics. 1.Garlic Garlic has been used medicinally by cultures around the world for thousands of years. In fact, it was used in the 1700s to ward off the plague. Garlic possesses potent antibiotic, antiviral, antifungal, and antimicrobial properties and is able to help protect and facilitate removal of unfriendly bacteria. It is also very high in natural antioxidants that destroy free radicals, which also supports a strong immune system. The active ingredient in garlic, allicin, is the key component to killing and warding off harmful bacteria. Crush it to activate these compounds, and eat it raw, in a warm tea or in lightly cooked food. Primary Uses : Internal, general colds, flu, ear infections, immune system booster. 2. Oil of Oregano Oil of oregano takes care of pathogenic bacteria without disrupting beneficial bacteria. It is also antiviral and antifungal which makes it a powerful, natural antibiotic with a three-in-one combination that rivals pharmaceuticals while not encouraging antibiotic resistance. The key antimicrobial ingredient in oregano oil is carvacrol. You should ensure that your source is at least 70 percent carvacrol content in order to be effective. Primary Uses : Skin infections, foot & nail fungus, sinus infections. 3.Manuka Honey Among its many other health benefits, manuka honey has a powerful infection-fighting punch. Unlike normal raw honey, manuka honey is made from bees that pollinate the manuka bush. The result is a honey rich in naturally occurring hydrogen peroxide, methylglyoxal, and dihydroxyacetone. This trifecta of substances is responsible for the potent antimicrobial properties of Manuka honey. Studies have even found that manuka honey can kill off staph infections, an antibiotic-resistant superbug. Primary Uses: Skin or oral infections. 4.Cinnamon Cinnamon is one of the world’s oldest and most common spices.  Adding cinnamon to your morning coffee is a great preventative against common infections like acne, urinary tract infection, and gum disease. Superfoodly says it is important to buy Ceylon cinnamon, as the more common cassia variety can be toxic to the liver. 5.Ginger Ginger is another promising natural antibiotic. That’s because ginger contains natural compounds that can • Fight infections • Soothe digestive issues & discomfort • Relieve nausea • Reduce inflammation • Increases stomach acid to calm digestion after a meal These properties are the reason why raw ginger is always served with raw foods like sushi. 6.Colloidal silver Colloidal silver has been known as an effective antibiotic for centuries.  The main advantage was that it was rapidly fatal to microbes without toxic action on its host. Recent research has also stated that colloidal silver can destroy antibiotic resistant microbes like MRSA (Meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), the bird flu, and SARS (Severe acute respiratory syndrome).

Dangers of The Overuse of Antibiotics | Dr. Weston
Healthcare seems to have come full circle as it moved away from natural cures into synthetics, but has now begun to look closer at the natural world once more for medicine. Part of this may be due to the new resistant superbugs that have begun to make things more difficult. Dr. Weston discussed antibiotics. Antibiotics inhibit the growth of or even kill bacteria. These have saved countless lives and improved many conditions for many years. Originally antibiotics came only from natural sources, but as demand and our knowledge grew, we replaced these with synthetics. Superbugs were predicted early on, but we ignored the warnings. Regrettably, the dire warnings have now become a reality. There are strains of mutated, antibiotic-resistant bacteria that ignore even our most effective antibiotics or even eat them like candy. We overuse antibiotics or use them incorrectly. About 80% of the antibiotics sold in the US are used for livestock. This overuse has created our new problems, but antibiotics also come with risks of allergy, side effects, and the destruction of helpful bacteria we need. Natural antibiotics abound in our world, without all the dangerous side effects, like garlic, pau d'arco, olive leaf, cloves, sage, cinnamon, and ionic silver. Our natural world has many plants, herbs, and foods that can offer so much more than we know. -- Subscribe to our channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=sunwarriortribe -- Visit us at: http://www.sunwarrior.com/ Like us on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/sunwarrior ‪Follow us on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Sunwarrior Hang out with us on Google+: http://plus.google.com/100431369190586473063/posts Follow us on Pinterest: https://pinterest.com/sunwarriortribe/

Testing an Antibiotic Using a Disk Diffusion Assay - Kirby Bauer Method
At GoldBio, we make sure each of our products are thoroughly tested to the highest standards. In addition to a typical certificate of analysis (COA), we also test our antibiotics through a modified version of the Kirby-Bauer method, also known as the disk diffusion method. The test compares the antibiotic's ability to prevent bacterial growth to a common set of standards created by the Clinical Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) in order to assure its functionality at a certain concentration. As a control, we use a strain sensitive to the antibiotic to determine its effectiveness and a resistant strain to assure it is the correct substance. Each lot is tested with this procedure. Visit the website at: http://www.goldbio.com/GoldBio-Video-Library/2/testing-antibiotic-using-disk-diffusion-assay-kirby-bauer-method **Update November 2014** Rather than going through the steps addressed in the video, this blog will just highlight important things to consider so you’re prepared to test when the time comes - https://www.goldbio.com/blog/120/old-antibiotics-wont-spoil-research-with-this-test **Update August 2017** Here is the equipment used in this video: -6 mm filter paper discs -sterile petri dishes -agar plates with no antibiotic -sensitive and resistant bacterial cultures -antibiotic to test and antibiotic for control Other items out on the bench is a Bunsen burner, lighter, tube racks, thermometer, pipette, pipette tips, antibiotics solution, forceps, ethanol, flow hood (optional) and a marker to label discs

The Secret Soviet Virus That Helps Kill Bacteria

For decades, we have relied on antibiotic drugs such as penicillin. Unless you were particularly young, elderly, or physically weak, you didn't need to fear cuts, bruises, or basic operations. But as these drugs became more and more widespread, bacteria began to evolve new defences against these drugs - and the consequences have become alarming." Remember Life Before Antibiotics? No?

Antibiotics and Viral Infections What your doctor isn't telling you with Dr. Alan Christianson
Antibiotics, Do you need them?: A guide to viral infections with Dr. Alan Christianson http://drchristianson.com/blog Do you need to take an antibiotic? Life comes at us fast, with ous schedules we can’t afford to be sick. We become desperate! Let’s get to the question. Our four vulnerable areas are ears, throat, lungs and sinuses. Multiple symptoms in those areas equal a virus. Let’s talk about the illusions of viral infections. Symptoms last from seven to ten days. It goes from not bad to awful in this time. In the latter stages you will start questioning if you need an antibiotic. Then you say, “Hey, I am done with this. This has gone on for too long, and I just need this gone!” This is day seven or eight. The next two days, you magically get better. An important fact is viruses are typically a 10 day issue. It often feels as if the antibiotic fixed the issue. Really, it did not, as the symptoms would have gone away in that time frame anyway. In some moments however antibiotics are need. Let’s take a look: The throat: Strep throat benefits from antibiotic treatment. In most cases, strep throat is just a bad, painful throat without a runny nose, ear pressure or a cough. The ears: Although it isn’t as common for adults, some get complicated ear infections. If they do, they will not commonly have a runny nose or a sore throat. The symptoms will be more localized in the ears, along with fever and some pain. The lungs: If you have a very productive cough, fever and fatigue (probably without a sore throat, a runny nose or ear pressure), you could have pneumonia. It does take a chest X-ray to confirm. Listening to the lungs is not perfect in most cases. If you are listening closely, you might notice I didn’t address one area: the sinuses. In many levels of my training, I was taught sinus infections take a long time to get rid of, so patients probably need two courses of antibiotics. Sinus infections take about three weeks to go away. Antibiotics or not sinuses will take three weeks. If you do take an antibiotic, your odds of having more sinuses infections that year are 50% higher than if you did not. So, if you do take an antibiotic for a sinus infection, it won’t go away faster, but you have a good chance of getting sick sooner than you would otherwise. I am not against antibiotics, but by very conventional guidelines, Antibiotics are not much help with a mixture of symptoms like bronchitis and flu. One note about the flu: There is a treatment, called Tamiflu, which is kind of like an antibiotic against influenza. The data says it isn’t helpful. Here’s a trick to treating viruses. Viruses shed themselves by sweating more than anything. When kids get sick, they get high fever, and then are done. As adults, we do not have that kind of vitality. Here’s how we do it: At bedtime, prepare some ginger tea. Fill the bathtub with water that is as hot as tolerable. Put extra blankets on your bed and wear sweat clothes. A silly amount of clothes. Jump in the tub for about fifteen minutes, while drinking some warm to hot ginger tea. Ginger is a diaphoretic warming you up internally. Once you have cooked yourself pretty good in the tub, wear the sweat clothes in bed with blankets, while you sleep. After a few hours of sweat, throw off the clothes and go back to sleep. you will awaken and will have kicked the virus! You will have have broken the cycle. This method is a stronger antibiotic for most, common, respiratory infections and has no side effects!

Penicillin: How Does Penicillin Work?
Penicillin: How Does Penicillin Work? Penicillins are a group of antibiotics used to treat a large range of bacterial infections. They are derived from Penicillium fungi and can be taken orally or via injection. Penicillin has saved millions of lives since its initial discovery. In 2010, more than 7.3 billion standard units of penicillin (pill, capsule or ampoule), were consumed, worldwide. The penicillins were the first antibacterial drugs used by doctors, and they attack a wide range of bacteria. Penicillin's discovery and consequent manufacture have changed the face of medicine. Fast facts on penicillin: Penicillin was the first antibiotic to be used medically. There are a number of penicillin strains used for different medical applications. Alexander Fleming is credited with penicillin's discovery. Penicillin works by interfering with bacteria cell walls. Less than 1 percent of people are dangerously allergic to penicillin.

This Syrup Is 10x More Powerful Than Penicillin (Kills All Infections And ...)
This Syrup Is 10x More Powerful Than Penicillin (Kills All Infections And Bacteria From Your Organism). - - - Infections and bacteria can attack you in any season. In the winter season, the spread of flu is quite common. The immune system has been ready to fight the infection. However, whenever our immune system fails to fight the infection we take help from antibiotics. But nowadays many infections are caused due to drug-resistant viruses. In such cases antibiotics does not help to cure the health condition. Moreover, antibiotics have a long list of side effects and thus, it is better to avoid frequent intake of antibiotics. In order to improve the strength of the immune system, there exist natural remedies which are much more powerful than prescription drugs and antibiotics. Here is a recipe for a natural remedy which is times more powerful than antibiotics to treat respiratory infections, persistent cough, sore throat, asthma, chronic bronchitis as well as breathing problems. Homemade Powerful Penicillin: The recipe requires only 3 ingredients which are affordable to everyone and the process is so easy that you can prepare at home. Things you need: 1. Garlic cloves 3 to 4. 2. Water ½ cup. 3. Organic apple cider vinegar ¼ cup. 4. Organic honey ½ cup. Process: 1. Take 3-4 garlic cloves and crush them properly. 2. Add ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar along with ½ cup of honey to it. 3. Stir it properly and add ½ cup of water at the end. 4. Store the solution in a glass jar and leave it overnight to get a homogenous mixture. 5. Strain the mixture in the morning and store in the dark and cold place. 6. If you are suffering from infection then take 1 tbsp of this solution after every couple of hours until you get rid of the infection. 7. If you are not sick but want to boost your immune system then take 4-5 drops of the solution every day. 8. Use this remedy for a month time and your immune system will become stronger. You can add this solution to your daily routine to remain healthy. Health benefits of the ingredients: Garlic is termed as an important ingredient in alternative treatments to cure the respiratory problems. It has antiviral and antibacterial properties which help to boost the immune system. It also has the capability to fight the mutation changes in the viruses. Thus, it is very effective to fight mutated and new viruses. It consists of a compound called allicin which is provided to be 10 times more powerful than penicillin. With the combination of all the healthy properties, garlic is recognized as super food which helps us to remain healthy all the time. Apple Cider Vinegar helps to fight the viruses and bacteria due to the antibacterial and antiviral properties. It also stimulates the immune system to protect us from infection. It consists of beneficial bacteria, enzymes and trace minerals which are very important to promote overall well-being and health. Honey is proven to be the best ingredient to treat cough and sore throat. It has anti-inflammatory and soothing properties which help to provide relief from irritation caused by infection. The organic honey is a rich source of vitamins, enzyme, minerals and antioxidants which help us to remain healthy all the time. So, now onwards just avoid the overuse of antibiotics and switch to the natural method to boost your immune system.

The first antibiotic, penicillin, was discovered in 1928 by Sir Alexander Fleming and they are used to fight bacterial diseases and infections. The problem is that they are overprescribed and often prescribed to fight viruses, like the common cold and influenza, despite the fact that antibiotics aren’t effective against viruses. →Subscribe for new videos every day! https://www.youtube.com/user/toptenznet?sub_confirmation=1 → → GET A T-SHIRT - http://www.toptenz.net/toptenz-t-shirts →Top 10 Objects That Were Clearly Invented Just to Annoy Physics: https://youtu.be/0MVGeRa-vLo →Simon's VLOG: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvqt8j7DfPmveJp3UOk9XTg Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from TopTenzNet!

How Antibiotics Work ?
Antibiotics work by affecting things that bacterial cells have but human cells don't. For example, human cells do not have cell walls, while many types of bacteria do. The antibiotic penicillin works by keeping a bacterium from building a cell wall. The Antibiotics work at 3 levels,the first level is at Gene Expression of Bacteria,The gene expression of Bacteria is three step process where we see the flow of Information from DNA to RNA to Protein ,we see the DNA ,Transfers its information into mRNA molecules through a process called Transcription and from the information of mRNA molecule, the bacteria produces a Protein in the process of Translation. When both of the processes are stopped by Antibiotics the cell ceases to exist and also the DNA replication of Bacteria is halted by some Antibiotics…. Another novel, working of Antibiotics is that they Inhibit the cell wall synthesis of Bacteria……We humans don’t have cell wall in our cells ,,, so the cell wall becomes easy target of Antibiotics . And finally there are some antibiotics like Sulfa antibiotics that inhibit that inhibit the folate synthesis in Bacteria by competitive inhibition of enzymes. Antibiotics like Rifampicin , clindimycin , Beta Lactam , Pencillin and Chloramphenicol affect the bacteria growth and processes at various levels.

Antibiotics Facts | Unknown Facts about Antibiotics that can Surprise you!
Let's know some interesting facts about antibiotics that can surprise you! Antibiotics is A drug used to treat bacterial infections. Antibiotics have no effect on viral infections. Originally, an antibiotic was a substance produced by one microorganism that selectively inhibits the growth of another. Synthetic antibiotics, usually chemically related to natural antibiotics, have since been produced that accomplish comparable tasks. In 1926, Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin, a substance produced by fungi that appeared able to inhibit bacterial growth. In 1939, Edward Chain and Howard Florey further studied penicillin and later carried out trials of penicillin on humans (with what were deemed fatal bacterial infections). Fleming, Florey and Chain shared the Nobel Prize in 1945 for their work which ushered in the era of antibiotics. Music credit: ============== Music is provided by NCS Lensko - Let's Go!

Antibiotic resistance in gonorrhea - Video Learning - WizScience.com
The Gonorrhea bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae has developed antibiotic resistance to many antibiotics. Beta-lactams like penicillin were widely used to treat gonorrhea in the 1940s. There are three general mechanisms that may allow bacteria to become resistant to beta-lactam antibiotics: # inability to access/target penicillin-binding protein enzyme # inhibition of binding to PBP via modification of the enzyme # hydrolysis/inactivation of the antibiotic by beta-lactamases. Overuse of penicillin contributed to "Neisseria gonorrhoeae" developing high resistance to penicillin through two main mechanisms: chromosomally mediated resistance and penicillinase-mediated resistance . Chromosomally mediated resistance occurred through step-wise changes over many years. Chromosomal mutations in the "penA", "mtr", and "penB" genes are the major mechanisms for CMRNG. The "penA" gene encodes an alternative penicillin-binding protein, PBP-2. This mechanism falls under the second general mechanism for beta-lactam resistance. PBPs, also known as transpeptidases, are targets for beta-lactams. These enzymes are involved in peptidoglycan synthesis which is a major component of the bacterial cell wall. PBPs cross-link the amino acid strands of peptidoglycan during synthesis. Normally, beta-lactams bind the PBPs and thereby inhibit the cross-linking of peptidoglycan. When this occurs, the cell wall of the bacterium is compromised and often results in cell death. When "N. gonorrhoeae" encodes "penA", the new PBP-2 that is synthesized is no longer recognized by the beta-lactams rendering the bacterium resistant.

How much dose of an antibiotic is sufficient for Strep Throat? - Dr. Sriram Nathan
Amoxicillin is oral penicillin group of antibiotics, which was previously used in the treatment of streptococcal infection or throat infection. In any case we have seen that any infection of the nose, throat, where we see current signs of infection. The best treatment is something to do as culture and sensitivity. Culture and sensitivity means that the culture of bacteria which is there is identified and the proper antibiotic is identified after the proper strain of the bacteria is identified. Amoxicillin which was used previously in the dosage of 500 mg for three times a day for a period of 5 to 7 days is recently not found to be that effective in the recent times. We now use a combination of amoxicillin with clavulanic acid, which is more effective but in any case if you have a streptococcal infection, the best thing is to go for a culture and sensitivity, get the bacteria and get confirmed that it is streptococcal infection, see the sensitivity of that particular antibiotic in concurrence with your ENT doctor and start the proper treatment.

Superbugs That Resist Antibiotics Can Evolve in 11 Days | I Contain Multitudes
Antibiotics like penicillin have a critical role in medicine, but using them is not a decision to be taken lightly. Before the discovery of penicillin and other antibiotics, a cut on your knee or an ear infection could kill you. In 1928, a physician named Alexander Fleming found that a mold in one of his petri dishes was killing the bacteria he was trying to grow. This strain of mold formed the basis for one of the most significant medical discoveries in history: penicillin. Antibiotics soon became lifesavers, and so precious that unused penicillin was reclaimed from patients’ urine to give to others. However, even back then, Fleming knew that bacteria could become resistant to penicillin. In this episode, Ed Yong explains how serious the situation can become: “Bacteria have always been evolving ways of resisting the things that try to kill them. And now the overuse of antibiotics is exacerbating that problem.” Ed looks at shocking new footage of mutating bacteria thriving in antibiotics a thousand times stronger than can kill their non-superbug ancestors.

Top 5 Oral Antibiotics for Acne Treatment. Are they safe and effective ?
http://www.cysticacnehelp.com/antibiotics-for-acne/ Antibiotics are the most commonly used method for treating acne. There are different antibiotics used to treat acne. They all work in more or less the same way. Acne antibiotics can either be used orally or applied on the skin. Although they can help reduce and clear acne breakouts, these antibiotics have their associated side effect. Oral antibiotics for acne There are different types of oral antibiotics prescribed for the treatment of acne. The most common of these include the following. Tetracycline is one of the commonly prescribed acne treatments. For effectiveness, the patient has to take the medication on an empty stomach. Taking the medication with meals reduces its effectiveness. It has a derivative, minocycline which is commonly prescribed for treatment of pustular acne. Doxycycline is an acne treatment antibiotic commonly prescribed for patients whose acne conditions don't respond to treatment with tetracycline or minocycline. It should be taken with food. Two other antibiotics for acne: Erythromycin and Clindamycin Possible side effects of oral antibiotics for acne Nausea and vomiting Candida vaginal yeast infection in women Interaction with birth control pills lessening their effectiveness Increased skin sensitivity to the sun Allergic reactions to the medication Many acne sufferers have found the antibiotics to be quite effective in combating acne breakouts. However, effectiveness comes down to the type of antibiotics for acne used and the individual's condition. A study showed that the acne causing bacteria is becoming resistant to some of the antibiotics making them less effective for treatment. Finding the most effective antibiotics for acne to treat your breakouts can be a costly affair. The problem is that not all antibiotics available guarantee great results. If you want effective acne treatment methods which guarantee results despite your acne condition, I have compiled a short report detailing 5 easy steps to get rid of acne. The five steps involved in the report don't have any side effects and are cost effective.

Antibiotics: Agribusiness’s Pound of Flesh
The FDA’s suggestion that the meat industry voluntarily stop feeding antibiotics by the ton to farm animals to fatten them faster falls short of the changes needed to forestall the epidemic of antibiotic resistance.

New Antibiotic Discovered in Ocean Bacteria
A new kind of antibiotic compound has been discovered in microorganisms living in the ocean off the California coast. A new kind of antibiotic compound has been discovered in microorganisms living in the ocean off the California coast. Scientists from the University of California San Diego's Scripps Institution of Oceanography have found the antibiotic, called anthracimycin, to potentially be effective against anthrax and MRSA infections that can't be cured with other antibiotics. It is derived from bacteria that were found living in the Pacific Ocean sediment. William Fenical, Professor of Oceanography and Pharmaceutical Science at Scripps, who led the research said: "The real importance of this work is that anthracimycin has a new and unique chemical structure. The discovery of truly new chemical compounds is quite rare. This discovery adds to many previous discoveries that show that marine bacteria are genetically and chemically unique." This is the first new natural antibiotic that has been developed since 2003. Using the same antibiotics for an extended period of time can create drug resistant bacteria. The discovery means that more analogue compounds can be developed that might be used to fight other antibiotic resistant infections. Medical professionals are calling for more funding from governments around the world for antibiotic research and development.

Athletic people often face upper respiratory infections and other medical illnesses. Occasionally they need antibiotics to treat these infections. While it can be safe to exercise or play sports while taking antibiotics, there are some concerns worth discussing with your doctor. The concern that has received the most attention is the risk of tendon rupture. Fluoroquinolones, including ciprofloxacin (Cipro) and levofloxacin (Levaquin), are often used to treat urinary infections. These antibiotics have been associated with increased risks of tendon ruptures. Antibiotic-associated diarrhea can occur when you take antibiotics. These medications can alter the normal bacteria in the G.I. system. In order to decrease your chance of having diarrhea, your doctor can keep the duration of antibiotic treatment as short as possible that still eliminates the infection. Antibiotics that have been linked to photosensitivity are a concern for anyone who plays outdoor sports or exercises outside. Tetracyclines, fluoroquinolones and sulfa drugs are believed to carry this risk. It is possible that you could develop a serious sunburn on body parts exposed to the sun or have an increased risk of skin cancer if you use these medications. Theoretically you should avoid these antibiotics or use sunscreen and wear fully protective clothing. By no means does this list of concerns represent medical advice. If you have an infection and require antibiotic treatment, you should ask the doctor about possible complications with those drugs, especially as they pertain to exercise and sports. Please remember, while I appreciate your questions, I cannot and will not offer specific medical advice by email, online, on my show, or in the comments at the end of these posts.

Garlic Proven 100 Times More Effective Than Antibiotics, Working In A Fraction of The Time
http://preventdisease.com/news/12/050212_Garlic-Proven-100-Time-More-Effective-Than-Antibiotics.shtml Garlic Proven 100 Times More Effective Than Antibiotics, Working In A Fraction of The Time A significant finding from Washington State University shows that garlic is 100 times more effective than two popular antibiotics at fighting disease causing bacteria commonly responsible for foodborne illness. Their work was published recently in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy a follow-up to the author's previous research in Applied and Environmental Microbiology which conclusively demonstrated that garlic concentrate was effective in inhibiting the growth of C. jejuni bacteria. Garlic is probably nature's most potent food. It is one of the reasons people who eat the Mediterranean diet live such long healthy lives. Garlic is also a powerful performer in the research lab. "This work is very exciting to me because it shows that this compound has the potential to reduce disease-causing bacteria in the environment and in our food supply," said Xiaonan Lu, a postdoctoral researcher and lead author of the paper. One of the most interesting of the recent findings is that garlic increases the overall antioxidant levels of the body. Scientifically known as Allium sativa, garlic has been famous throughout history for its ability to fight off viruses and bacteria. Louis Pasteur noted in 1858 that bacteria died when they were doused with garlic. From the Middle Ages on, garlic has been used to treat wounds, being ground or sliced and applied directly to wounds to inhibit the spread of infection. The Russians refer to garlic as Russian penicillin. "This is the first step in developing or thinking about new intervention strategies," saif Michael Konkel, a co-author who has been researching Campylobacter jejuni for 25 years. "Campylobacter is simply the most common bacterial cause of food-borne illness in the United States and probably the world," Konkel said. Some 2.4 million Americans are affected every year, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with symptoms including diarrhea, cramping, abdominal pain and fever. The bacteria also are responsible for triggering nearly one-third of the cases of a rare paralyzing disorder known as Guillain-Barre syndrome. Diallyl disulfide is an organosulfur compound derived from garlic and a few other genus Allium plants. It is produced during the decomposition of allicin, which is released upon crushing garlic Lu and his colleagues looked at the ability of diallyl sulfide to kill the bacterium when it is protected by a slimy biofilm that makes it 1,000 times more resistant to antibiotics than the free floating bacterial cell. They found the compound can easily penetrate the protective biofilm and kill bacterial cells by combining with a sulfur-containing enzyme, subsequently changing the enzyme's function and effectively shutting down cell metabolism. The researchers found the diallyl sulfide was as effective as 100 times as much of the antibiotics erythromycin and ciprofloxacin and often would work in a fraction of the time. Two previous works published last year by Lu and WSU colleagues in Applied and Environmental Microbiology and Analytical Chemistry found diallyl sulfide and other organosulfur compounds effectively kill important food-borne pathogens, such as Listeria monocytogenes and Escherichia coli O157:H7. "Diallyl sulfide may be useful in reducing the levels of the Campylobacterin the environment and to clean industrial food processing equipment, as the bacterium is found in a biofilm in both settings," Konkel said. "Diallyl sulfide could make many foods safer to eat," said Barbara Rasco, a co-author on all three recent papers and Lu's advisor for his doctorate in food science. "It can be used to clean food preparation surfaces and as a preservative in packaged foods like potato and pasta salads, coleslaw and deli meats." "This would not only extend shelf life but it would also reduce the growth of potentially bad bacteria," she said. The natural substance could also be derived without artificially introducing harmful chemicals to disruptive its disease-reducing abilities. Ironically, many researchers think that antibiotics may be just one of several factors that contribute to intestinal blockage in young children.
