This 3-Hour Test Could Save Your Life
I’ve told you before how “superbugs” are becoming an epidemic in America.
These antibiotic-resistant infections are killing tens of thousands of people every single year.
And here’s the REAL problem…
It can take up to THREE DAYS for doctors to figure out which superbug you have… and which antibiotics may work on it.
By then you could be dead – or well on your way.
Fortunately, a new test is delivering results in hours and not days.
Most doctors still don’t know a thing about it… but it could end up saving your life.
Scientists from the University Hospital Jena (UHJ) and Friedrich Schiller University in Germany have made an incredible breakthrough in the diagnosis and treatment of antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains.
They have developed a way to clearly identify superbugs and which antibiotics they’re resistant to in just three hours.
Compared to the current 72-hour waiting time, this development will be life-saving for lots of people.
So why does the process take 72 hours now?
Well, prepare to be disgusted.
Doctors sometimes wait for the bacteria to spread and multiply in order to get a large enough sample size.
And all the while, you’re getting sicker and sicker.
But the German breakthrough can take use just a microscopic sample of the bacteria, and employs a laser-light system to make a diagnosis.
Various antibiotics in different concentrations are then applied to those microscopic samples.
Within a few hours, it becomes obvious which antibiotics will work… and which won’t.
The German researchers are currently working to distribute their new testing method to hospitals around the world (some of the larger hospitals may adopt it quickly).
In the meantime, remember that the best way to avoid developing a superbug is to cut out unnecessary exposure to antibiotics.
Only eat antibiotic-free meat, and don’t take antibiotic drugs for conditions they won’t help (like a cold).
