Could cattle feedlots be spreading antibiotic resistance through the air?

A team from the Institute of Environmental and Human Health at Texas Tech University (TTU) in Lubbock, TX, analyzed air samples around feedlots at cattle farms in the Southern High Plains that lie in northwestern Texas.
In the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, they report how they found evidence of feedlot-derived bacteria, antibiotics and bits of DNA that code for antibiotic resistance, in the samples.
The study is thought to be the first to document evidence of airborne transmission of antibiotic resistance from an open-air farm setting.
The researchers accept that while they couldn't assess whether the amounts of the materials they found were dangerous to humans, the results shed light on previously unanswered questions about which routes antibiotic-resistant bacteria could be using to travel long distances to places inhabited by humans.

Extra funding sought to fight antibiotic-resistant bacteria

The Obama administration wants to double the amount of federal funding dedicated to combating
antibiotic-resistant bacteria, a mounting problem that causes an estimated 2 million illnesses and 23,000 deaths annually in the United States.
President Obama will ask Congress for the $1.2 billion as part of his annual budget request, scheduled to be unveiled next week, White House officials said.
The funding would be used to speed development of antibiotics and diagnostic tools, improve surveillance for “superbugs,” and better prevent the spread of antibiotic-resistant microbes in hospitals and other health-care settings.READ MORE Oh Please, just spray down with ionic silver and problem solved.

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A health warning. The extremely contagious measles virus is back. An outbreak that started at Disneyland is starting to sweep the country.
Christie Ileto has the push for children to get vaccinated.
Measles was thought to have been eliminated in the U.S. 15 years ago. Now its back, targeting those who haven’t been immunized.
The outbreak that started in California’s Disneyland is expanding. At least 75 cases of measles span six states.  READ MORE  Sounds like more fear porn-What happened to the Ebola Scare? beinki

California measles outbreak expands to 51 cases; more likely

The measles outbreak centered in California is rapidly expanding, with officials now confirming 51 cases of the illness -- nearly double the number reported Tuesday -- and warning that more people will probably fall sick with the highly contagious virus.
Officials said there was now evidence that the measles outbreak had spread beyond people who visited Disneyland between Dec. 17 and 20 and begun infecting people in the broader community.
It is the beginning of a scenario experts have feared. Health officials generally hope a measles outbreak can be contained within a manageable group of people and eventually extinguished by keeping the ill at home or in a hospital room until they recover, with the outbreak eventually being stopped by the broader community of vaccinated people.

Nanowire-Coated Fabric Keeps You Warm So Your House Won’t Have To

Instead of turning up the thermostat up this winter, why not just throw on some nanowire-coated clothing to stay toasty?
According to the International Energy Agency, indoor heating accounts for almost half of total global energy usage, mainly on heating residential buildings. In a recent study published in Nano Letters, researchers from Stanford University describe a better way to conserve thermal energy. The nanomaterial-coated fabric they created traps heat inside a person's clothing, thereby removing the necessity to heat empty space and inanimate objects, and lowering the cost of household heating to (theoretically) almost nothing.

Stop Killing the Good Guys! Protect Your Child's Microbiome From Antibiotic Overuse

The average child in the United States will receive between and 10 and 20 courses of antibiotics by the time he or she is 18 years old. (2) We are so accustomed to antibiotics being prescribed for childhood illnesses that we assume that they are as safe as they are common. But this is far from the truth. We are now learning the hard way that the common overuse of antibiotics, both as medicines and in our foods (they are given to cattle and poultry to keep them "healthy" until they are slaughtered for food; antibiotics also promote growth in these animals by the same mechanisms that their chronic use increases the risk of obesity in humans) is responsible for two major health problems: global antibiotic resistance to serious infections, and damage to the human microbiome.

Legionnaire's disease in Bronx New York City

City health officials are warning New Yorkers about an increase in cases of Legionnaire's disease, a potentially deadly form of pneumonia, in the Bronx.
 Eleven cases of the disease were reported in the Bronx in December, compared with two in December 2013 and three in December 2012. The 11 cases reported last month represent nearly 20 percent of the total of 61 cases the borough had in all of 2014. Most cases were in the northeast Bronx.
Legionnaire's disease is caused by exposure to the bacteria Legionella, an aquatic organism that grow in warm environments. People are exposed to it by inhaling contaminated aerosols from cooling towers, whirlpool spas, showers and faucets or drinking water contaminated with the bacteria. READ MORE

How Silver Enhances Healthcare And Optical Effects

In its monthly industry release, The Silver Institute reported once again new applications of silver in products across several industries. The Silver Institute has written extensively how silver has helped breakthrough improvements in product development and industries; read previous articles herehere, here, and here.
Electrical Maker Switches to Antimicrobial Silver
Switches and wallplates from Leviton Manufacturing, Co. now offer silver treatment to protect against harmful bacteria. The Melville, New York, maker of electrical equipment is responding to consumer interest in antibacterial surfaces for everyday fixtures such as light switches that eliminate germs that can be easily transferred to those who frequently touch them. This is especially true in hospitals, offices and healthcare facilities, as well as in public areas such as restrooms.
“Leviton’s devices are intended to help keep frequently touched surfaces of switches, wallplates and other electrical wiring devices clean of bacteria and microbes READ MORE

Elevator buttons at hospitals have more bacteria than the toilets

For obvious reasons, hospitals are a hotspot for germ exposure, which can increase the risk of infection for those making a visit by up to 10 percent, according to a recent study. What might be surprising though, is that researchers found more bacteria colonization on the hospital elevator buttons than even on the facility’s toilets. The authors of the study from the University of Toronoto, published in the U.S. National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine, knew that germs were spread over many surfaces in hospitals, but they wanted to find out specifically how elevator buttons compared to other sources of bacteria exposure  READ MORE
