Finally - Some Good News about Winning the War Against Super-Infections

One of the biggest problems for men suffering from incontinence is getting Urinary Tract Infections (“UTI’s).  Now for men who use the Men’s Liberty device, they know that UTI’s are a thing of the past – after millions of Men’s Liberty devices being used, we have yet to receive even the first report of a UTI.  The Men’s Liberty PREVENTS UTI’s.

(UTI’s are a common and sad side effect, misfortune and result from using catheters, pads and diapers and other incontinence products)

For those of us who have suffered from UTI’s, we know that the first line of defense is antibiotics.  And of course, that means our bodies are building up resistance against antibiotics, and with some of us, traditional prescription antibiotics fail to prevent bacteria and infection.  That means hospitalizations and in some cases, daily infusion treatments.

That’s exactly what happened to one of our team member’s husband.  He was hospitalized with an infection, and ended up in a coma, had surgery while in a 25-day coma, and then had over 150 daily infusion chemo “cocktail” treatments to kill the drug-resistant infections ravaging his body.  That was over 3 years ago, and still to this day the infectious disease specialists have not been able to identify the source or the pathogen of his infections.  Crazy huh?

Actually, that’s not all that unusual – in fact, more than 30% of all infections are unidentifiable.  Did you know that “infectious disease” is the fastest growing segment of U.S. medicine?  Yes!  It’s like being a forensic scientist dealing with unknown diseases of the body.

Here’s some GREAT news:  Recently, a young 25-year-old scientist by the name of Shu Lam, a Malaysian PhD student has quite possibly created a treatment to kill “Superbugs” that can no longer be successfully treated with antibiotics.

This is terrific news, as without Ms. Lam’s treatment, it’s been predicted that infectious diseases could end up killing far more people than cancer.  Many experts have reported that it could be our greatest health crisis ever.

Superbugs kill an estimated 700,000 people a year – among them 230,000 newborns.  A recent British study estimates this number rising to a shocking 10 million a year by 2050!

So how does Ms. Lam’s bacteria killer work?  She developed tiny star-shaped molecules built with peptide polymers.  The polymers target the bacteria and kill it in multiple ways.

Scientists throughout the world are calling Ms. Lam’s research a “breakthrough that could change the face of modern medicine!”

Kudos to Shu Lam and her team of scientists!  We can’t wait for update reports to her groundbreaking research!  This could truly be one of the greatest contributions to modern day health and science!
