Chicken Meat Linked to Drug-Resistant UTI Epidemic

Story at-a-glance -

  • A form of E. coli known as ExPEC is responsible for over 90 percent of urinary tract infections (UTIs); DNA matching reveals many UTIs are caused by eating contaminated chicken meat
  • Antibiotics have remained widely used in agriculture for growth promotion purposes, allowing resistance to develop, despite the fact that this practice has been suspected of causing human infections for nearly two decades
  • Flies have also been identified as carriers of a gene that renders bacteria drug resistant. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria also enter the food supply via contaminated manure and/or biosolids added to soils
  • Pure D-mannose is 10 to 50 times stronger than cranberry and has been shown to resolve over 90 percent of UTIs within one to two days. It’s nontoxic and completely safe, with no adverse effects
