Are GMO foods linked to G.I. disruption and infections?

Herbicide spray

The main ingredient in popular commercial herbicides and garden weed killers may lead to disruption of healthy G.I. flora in people

Foods made from Genetically Modified (GM, or GMO) crops are at the center of a heated political battle in the United States. Regardless of your opinions on GMO food safety, nobody can deny that the heavy use of herbicides and insecticides goes hand-in-hand with growing GMO crops. Perhaps the most troubling thing about GMO foods has nothing to do with the food itself, but rather what is sprayed on it.

The herbicide glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup® and other popular weed killers, is used heavily on GMO crops. In fact, “Roundup-Ready” crops are genetically modified to survive being sprayed with glyphosate, so that the spray only kills the weeds. The trouble is, glyphosate cannot be easily removed from foods after it is applied. And mounting evidence suggests that this popular herbicide negatively alters the balance of the microbiome, the healthy flora in the human gut.

Weed sprays found to increase antibiotic resistance in bacteria

salmonella bacteria

Salmonella and E.coli bacteria were found to become more resistant to antibiotics after exposure to common herbicides.

Antibiotic resistance is not a new topic. In 2013, reports from both the CDC and World Health Organization issued stern warnings about this growing problem with the CDC estimating “more than two million people are sickened every year with antibiotic-resistant infections, with at least 23,000 dying as a result” (see CDC report here).

Now it appears another factor has implications in this concerning issue. New research indicates at least three different commonly used herbicides effect the susceptibility of bacteria to antibiotics, meaning these herbicides are changing the way bacteria respond to antibiotics. A new study published in the American Society for Microbiology journal mBio looked at both E. coli and Salmonella bacteria exposed to three different herbicides; Dicamba (Kamba), 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and Glyphosate (Roundup).

Antibiotic resistance threat rising per CDC report

The new CDC report summarizes the 18 highest threat antibiotic resistant infections

The new CDC report summarizes the 18 highest threat antibiotic resistant infections. MRSA is near the top of the list.

On Monday the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released an extensive report about the growing threat of antibiotic resistance in the United States. The report details the risks, prevalence and national impact of 18 different superbugs, including MRSA, rating each according to level of concern. The report also outlines what can be done to combat these growing threats.

IBM discovers polymer that attacks drug resistant infections

Biofilms are protective layers that bacteria create to shield themselves from your immune system and to evade antibiotics. Biofilm colonies help bacteria to hide inside your body and can cause recurring Staph or MRSA infections. These protective colonies also allow bacteria to communicate with each other to become more resistant to antibiotics. Biofilms are a common problem plaguing catheters, pic lines and implanted medical devices that cause infections.

How to make your antibiotics work better

antibiotic drugs

Antibiotic drugs are becoming less effective against superbugs like MRSA and CRE, but there are ways to slow and even reverse this trend.

Antibiotic drugs are becoming less effective against MRSA each year, but there are ways to slow and even reverse this trend. Last week CNN did a story about yet another emerging superbug called CRE (carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae). This bacterial infection has been around for a while, but this new strain is resistant to many of the most powerful antibiotics and has been spreading in hospitals over the last 10 years.
