• WHO warns of Antibiotic Failure so use Arginine to boost the Immune System

    On 30th April, 2014, a World Health Organisation Report warned about the threat of antibiotic-resistant super-bugs.   Many common infections are now increasingly resistant to antibiotics and seven key bacteria linked to pneumonia, diarrhoea, blood poisoning, gonorheoa and urinary infections are particularly identified.   Keiji Fukuda, the WHO’s assistant director-general is reported to have said, “The world is headed for a post-antibiotic era, in which common infections and minor injuries which have been treatable for decades can once again kill.   Effective antibiotics have been one of the pillars allowing us to live longer, live healthier (sic), and benefit from modern medicine. Unless we take significant actions to improve efforts to prevent infections and also change how we produce, prescribe and use antibiotics, the world will lose more and more of these global public health goods (sic) and the implications will be devastating.”  


    This is why it is now even more important to boost the immune system with good nutrition.   In particular, I naturally say, ‘Don’t overlook L-arginine.’   Arginine Derived Nitric Oxide (ADNO) feeds and stimulates macrophages, which are the front line immune cells killing amongst other things salmonella, E.coli, Helicobacter pylori, Chlamydia and Candida albicans (footnote xxiii on the ADNO page).   Likewise it helps wound healing and resists hospital infections (footnotes xxiv and xxv on the ADNO page).   The very areas highlighted by the WHO as high risk.
