Evidence emerges that European E.coli O104:H4 superbug was bio-engineered

From Mike Adams at Natural News:

“(NaturalNews) Even as the veggie blame game is now under way across the EU, where a super resistant strain of e.coli is sickening patients and filling hospitals in Germany, virtually no one is talking about how e.coli could have magically become resistant to eight different classes of antibiotic drugs and then suddenly appeared in the food supply.

This particular e.coli variation is a member of the O104 strain, and O104 strains are almost never (normally) resistant to antibiotics. In order for them to acquire this resistance, they must be repeatedly exposed to antibiotics in order to provide the “mutation pressure” that nudges them toward complete drug immunity.

So if you’re curious about the origins of such a strain, you can essentially reverse engineer the genetic code of the e.coli and determine fairly accurately which antibiotics it was exposed to during its development. This step has now been done (see below), and when you look at the genetic decoding of this O104 strain now threatening food consumers across the EU, a fascinating picture emerges of how it must have come into existence.

The genetic code reveals the history

When scientists at Germany’sRobert Koch Institutedecoded the genetic makeup of the O104 strain, they found it to be resistant to all the following classes and combinations of antibiotics:

• penicillins
• tetracycline
• nalidixic acid
• trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazol
• cephalosporins
• amoxicillin / clavulanic acid
• piperacillin-sulbactam
• piperacillin-tazobactam

In addition, this O104 strain posses an ability to produce special enzymes that give it what might be called “bacteria superpowers” known technically asESBLs:

“Extended-Spectrum Beta-Lactamases (ESBLs) are enzymes that can be produced by bacteria making them resistant to cephalosporins e.g. cefuroxime, cefotaxime and ceftazidime – which are the most widely used antibiotics in many hospitals,” explains the Health Protection Agency in the UK (http://www.hpa.org.uk/Topics/Infect…).

On top of that, this O104 strain possesses two genes —TEM-1 and CTX-M-15— that “have been making doctors shudder since the 1990s,” reportsThe Guardian(http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentis…). And why do they make doctors shudder? Because they’re so deadly that many people infected with such bacteria experiencecritical organ failureand simply die.

Bioengineering a deadly superbug

So how, exactly, does a bacterial strain come into existence that’s resistant to over a dozen antibiotics in eight different drug classes and features two deadly gene mutations plus ESBL enzyme capabilities?

There’s really only one way this happens (and only one way) — you have toexpose this strain of e.colito all eight classes of antibiotics drugs. Usually this isn’t done at the same time, of course: You first expose it to penicillin and find the surviving colonies which are resistant to penicillin. You then take those surviving colonies and expose them to tetracycline. The surviving colonies are now resistant to both penicillin and tetracycline. You then expose them to a sulfa drug and collect the surviving colonies from that, and so on. It is a process of genetic selection done in a laboratory with a desired outcome. This is essentially how some bioweapons are engineered by the U.S. Army in its laboratory facility in Ft. Detrick, Maryland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nation…).

Although the actual process is more complicated than this, the upshot is that creating a strain of e.coli that’s resistant to eight classes of antibiotics requires repeated, sustained expose to those antibiotics. It is virtually impossible to imagine how this could happen all by itself in the natural world. For example, if this bacteria originated in the food (as we’ve been told), then where did it acquire all this antibiotic resistance given the fact that antibiotics are not used in vegetables?

When considering the genetic evidence that now confronts us, it is difficult to imagine how this could happen “in the wild.” While resistance to a single antibiotic is common, the creation of a strain of e.coli that’s resistant to eight different classes of antibiotics— in combination — simply defies the laws ofgenetic permutation and combinationin the wild. Simply put, this superbug e.coli strain could not have been created in the wild. And that leaves only one explanation for where it really came from:the lab.

Engineered and then released into the wild

The evidence now points to this deadly strain of e.coli beingengineeredand then either being released into the food supply or somehow escaping from a lab and entering the food supply inadvertently. If you disagree with that conclusion — and you’re certainly welcome to — then you are forced to conclude that this octobiotic superbug (immune to eight classes of antibiotics) developedrandomly on its own… and that conclusion is far scarier than the “bioengineered” explanation because it means octobiotic superbugs can simply appear anywhere at any time without cause. That would be quite an exotic theory indeed.

My conclusion actually makes more sense: This strain of e.coli was almost certainly engineered and then released into the food supplyfor a specific purpose. What would that purpose be? It’s obvious, I hope.

It’s allproblem, reaction, solutionat work here. First cause a PROBLEM (a deadly strain of e.coli in the food supply). Then wait for the public REACTION (huge outcry as the population is terrorized by e.coli). In response to that, enact your desired SOLUTION (total control over the global food supply and the outlawing of raw sprouts, raw milk and raw vegetables).

That’s what this is all about, of course. The FDA relied on the same phenomenon in the USA when pushing for its recent “Food Safety Modernization Act” which essentially outlaws small family organic farms unless they lick the boots of FDA regulators. The FDA was able to crush farm freedom in America by piggybacking on the widespread fear that followed e.coli outbreaks in the U.S. food supply. When people are afraid, remember, it’s not difficult to get them to agree to almost any level of regulatory tyranny. And making people afraid of their food is a simple matter… a few government press releases emailed to the mainstream media news affiliates is all it takes….”

    According to this scientist’s study , Hydrogen Peroxide kills E. Coli – or at least the forms tested .
    Here is the link :
    The article further suggests that misting separately your veggies and sprouts with vinegar followed by 3 per cent solution of Per Oxide increases the kill rate ten to hundredfold for all kinds of other organisms.
    Did I miss something ?
    Why are they focussing on the problem when the solution is ever at hand ?
    They can bioengineer E.Coli til they are blue in the face but nothing is going to stop the killing action of powerful oxidizers like Hydrogen Peroxide or Chlorine Dioxide.
    Both these agents have been actively used by the food industry for disinfecting work areas for 70 years .
    Does anybody have any information to refute this study ?
    Because if the solution is really so simple and inexpensive , I have to express the further concern as to why a billion dollars worth of fruit and vegetables are being destroyed so casually ?

    Antibiotics aren’t used on vegetables, yes, but they are used in excess with little regulation on farm animals (and have been for far too long), and the E.coli is thought to have originated from the fertilizer on the vegetables not the veges themselves. Duhh.

      I am not all talking about putting antibiotics in the soil or veggies !
      I am speaking about using Food Grade Oxidizers AFTER THE FACT OF EXPOSURE that ANYBODY with Food industry experience will be familiar with and as described in the link here :

      I am not talking about taking the oxidizers internally in this case either. (But that would be another interesting line of research : Is there a safe level of Chlorine Dioxide and/or 3% Food-Grade Hydrogen Peroxide that would knock out this strain of E.Coli in one or two doses taken over a one or two day period ? The reader should do their own research on the internet . )
      I WAS talking about the end consumer who takes the produce home (or to a restaurant ) and , typically, washes it in the sink with water or soap and water.
      It seems like a “no-brainer” for the local consumers to keep supporting their local farmers by continuing to buy ALL local fruits and vegetables and incorporating this simple protocol, i.e of thoroughly misting their produce at home with 3% Hydrogen Peroxide and/or Chlorine Dioxide/Vinegar , instead of casually destroying a billion dollars or more of vegetables and fruits and destroying people’s livelihood in the process ?
      The only way that would obviously not work is if the E.Coli is deep INSIDE the produce i.e under the skin ?
      Failing that they could do the patriotic thing and steam or cook the tomatoes , salads, sprouts or cucumbers.
      We have to be careful and observe how fear is creating a frenzied, disproportionate and altogether irrational response to the problem.
      Whether or not Mike Adams is correct that Big Pharma and Big Government created the problem , it is obvious that Big Pharma /Big Government / Global Media are driving this clumsy and expensive response to the tragedy .

        I was referring to this: “For example, if this bacteria originated in the food (as we’ve been told), then where did it acquire all this antibiotic resistance given the fact that antibiotics are not used in vegetables?”

  3. Dr. Daniel Marcano

    The engineered superbug is quite an ignorant theory: first of all, E. coli comes from the GI tract (in this case bovine), where a) It is exposed to high doses of all the antibiotics consumed by the animal/person (take into account most antibiotics are excreted through the faeces, so bacteria in the GI tract are always exposed to high antibiotic concentrations b) In that area it is in constant close contact to a wide diversity of bacteria, which, if have antibiotic resistance genes, can transfer them. Furthermore, most of the antibiotic resistance that this bacteria has is codified in a single plasmid, so the resistance to 8 antibiotics is actually a “combo” (the bacteria will usually express all of them together). And as a final note, it is not unusual al all to isolate multirresistant bacteria from enviromental samples (faeces have to go somewhere, right?). So, the theory that E. coli O104:H4 simply acquired a multirresistance plasmid is simpler and more probable than engineering a “superbacteria” that can be treated with Ciprofloxacin, for example

  4. Ian Sanitee

    All nice theories, but I think you’re missing the most obvious explanation. Seems pretty obvious to me it was a plot by the commies, operating under orders of their alien masters from the Gliese 581 system, to undermine the secret European Federal government’s telepathy experiments!

    All the evidence is staring you in the face if you know what to look for.
