I’m all for recycling plastic, but the use of nano fibers against Candida albicans is another great example of use now, worry about consequences later. Researchers from IBM, yes the people who bring use computers, have found that the use of recycled nano fibers can effectively kill Candida albicans.
“Further research revealed that the nanofibers erased 99.9% of Candida Albicans (C. albicans) – a fungus that is a cause of oral and genital infections in humans, as well as the third most common bloodstream infection in the US.
The fungi was eradicated after 1 hour of incubation and demonstrated no sign of resistance after 11 treatments.
Comparing these results to traditional antifungal drugs, the researchers note that traditional therapeutics developed resistance after 6 hours and were only able to suppress additional fungal growth.
Further studies also looked at the activity of the nanofibers in mouse models. This was done using a C. albicans biofilm infection linked to use of contact lenses.”
The great thing about studies like this is that they always point out the bad about current methods that nobody else wants to talk about or admit. These researchers point out that current anti-fungal drugs create resistance in as little as 6 hours. I’m sure those people who are prescribed these drugs would be surprised to hear about this, and rightfully concerned. Don’t blame your MD however, it’s news to them as well, seeing how they actually know very little about the drugs they prescribe and their side effects. They would probably be equally surprised to find out that anti-fungal medications, as well as antibiotics, suppress the immune system, which only allows further infections to set up.
Nanotechnology hasn’t been proven to be safe, and all those products based on nanotechnology may actually be creating a lot of harm. That harm may not surface for years, or in any way that would easily be recognized as a byproduct of their presence in the tissues.
What we know so far, is that these nano particles aren’t leaving the body and they can build up in the tissues. An abnormal substance in the tissues will always elicit an autoimmune response sooner or later. Of course, it’s not really autoimmune response where we attack our own tissues out of some blind ignorance, it just looks like it as the body attacks the cell structures that these nano particles are imbedded in. Nanoparticles can also build up inside the cells and create a functional traffic jam that prevents normal cell function and leads to cell death.
There are more effective ways to address fungal candida, such as the Candida Plan (www.candidaplan.com), that don’t involve long-term risk, but do involve personal responsibility for our own state of health. Supporting healthy levels of candida in its normal yeast form, boosting the body’s immune response, and restoring healthy bacterial flora at the right time will always be more productive. If however, you’re ready to let IBM become your source of information on health, then line up and get ready. I’ll choose to press the delete button on this information.
