WHO has identified antibiotic resistance as one of the greatest threats to human health. In the European Union (EU), about 25 000 patients die every year from infections caused by drug resistant superbugs.

              Super Bug Facts


  • Superbugs are germs that are resistant to antibiotics 
  • Antibiotic use promotes the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria 
  • Superbugs are created when livestock are fed antibiotics (antibiotics in our food encourages the creation of superbugs) 
  • Treating  a colds and  flu with antibiotics encourages the creation of superbugs ( antibiotics have no effect on virus germs that cause colds and flu) 
  • Turkey,pork, chicken, and beef are sometimes contaminated with superbugs  (After handling these meat products you should wash your hands to avoid any superbugs that are present. Don’t forget to disinfect the counter tops and cutting boards) 


Several Nasty Superbug Germs


MRSA -- Methicillin  Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus

MRSA or Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus is one of the most recognized superbugs around. Since it is very difficult to treat, it can be deadly. It is associated with urinary tract infections, bone and joint infection and can result in ruptured abscesses which are difficult to heal. It has been identified in health care settings, homes, locker rooms, gyms and schools. Mortality Rate: About 35%.




This one can be deadly if it gets into your urinary tract or seep into an open wound. Then, it can become life threatening. VRE, as it is known, is a leading cause of urinary tract infections and meningitis. If this gets you while you are undergoing surgery, it could kill you. Mortality Rate: About 40%.

Resistant Pseudomonas Aeruginosa:


Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a bacterium commonly found in soil and water. But if it gets into you through a break in the skin, it can turn deadly. The superbug, associated with lung, kidney and blood infections, is particularly serious in patients hospitalized with cancer, cystic fibrosis and burns. It causes urinary tract infections, respiratory system infections, bone and joint infections among many others. Mortality Rate: near 50%.

Resistant Acinetobacter Baumannii:


Infections by A. baumannii tend to happen most in immunosupressed patients with underlying diseases. The superbug also attacks patients having invasive treatments in the hospital. It can cause severe central nervous system infections, meningitis and ventriculitis, especially in patients undergoing head trauma. It is also associated with blood and urinary tract infections and pneumonia. Mortality rate: approaching 80%.

Clostridium Difficile :


More commonly known as C.diff, this bacterium is passed in feces and spread to food and other objects when people infected do not wash their hands well. The bacteria generates spores that are very difficult to eliminate. Once the infection spreads, it produces toxins that attack the lining of the intestine. Symptoms include diarrhea to inflammation of the colon, which can lead to death. Among those most likely to come down with the disease are older adults in hospitals or
