Do Antibiotics Contribute to Mercury Poisoning?

62

Closeup on medicine on table and young woman in background Scientists are no longer even sure how antibiotics work. We have the latest research. Action Alert!

According to Dr. David Williams, antibiotics may prevent the body from excreting mercury, which is found in fish and in many vaccines. This was documented in a study by Boyd Haley, PhD, from the University of Connecticut Medical Center. Mercury is highly toxic. In animals studies, researchers can mimic the exact same physiological changes to the brain along with the signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease by simply adding mercury to the system. Williams reports that increased mercury levels are also a known causative factor in cardiovascular disease.

Dr. Mark Hyman discussed a recent review, presented by Robert Nash, MD, at the annual conference of the American Board of Metal Toxicology, of mercury-associated diseases, mechanisms, controversies, and therapeutic options. The review suggested that the toxic effects of mercury are spread across a broad spectrum of diseases including autism, Alzheimer’s disease, ALS, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, neurodevelopmental diseases, nephrotoxicity, and cancer. According to Dr. Nash, mercury toxicity and retention are enhanced by factors found in the diet, antibiotics, other toxicants such as cadmium and lead, and genetic susceptibilities.

We first learned of a possible connection between antibiotics and mercury metabolism and excretion from a 1984 study on mice. Scientists found that giving mice antibiotics suppressed the gut flora, which reduced fecal mercury excretion. Mercury concentrations in the tissues and various organs were increased in mice fed antibiotics.

A more recent study shows that the mercury resistance gene has often been found together with antibiotic resistance genes. Researchers analyzed different levels of mercury exposure and antibiotic resistance. Mercury-resistant E. coli was found significantly more frequently in the populations that had the highest carriage rates of antibiotic-resistant E. coli, and antibiotic resistance was higher in the population living in an environment with a high exposure to mercury.

None of this should be surprising. Mercury and antibiotic drugs are both antibiotics. In the 19th century, before the toxicity of mercury was understood, it was a principal antibiotic.

Importantly, scientists are just beginning to realize that they might not even have the full story about how antibiotics work. One leading theory is that antibiotics create a pro-oxidant effect. If this proves to be true, there may be a role for intravenous vitamin C to help make treatments more effective against antibiotic-resistant drugs. ANH-USA board member Dr. Jeanne Drisko agrees, but notes the lack of government funding available for research:

We know from many years of use of IV vitamin C (from 1940s onward) that there is definitely a killing of viruses and bacteria. This is a common tool in integrative doctors’ arsenals for infected patients. It was not until recently that my colleagues, Mark Levine and Qi Chen, showed that injected vitamin C forms hydrogen peroxide in the extracellular space, which explains the killing role. We do think it could be helpful for super infections.

We still cannot get NIH to fund any of our IV C proposals and remain dependent on private foundations, which do not have the same cache. But we keep going forward.

Supplementing or complementing antibiotics is important for another reason. As with all medicines, antibiotics may be beneficial to some while harmful to others. People with flavin-containing monooxygenases (FMOs, prevalent in Hispanics and African Americans) and cytochrome P450s (CYPs) may not be able to metabolize some sulfur-containing antibiotics properly producing a more toxic metabolite instead. This is why individualized medicine, especially in drug therapy, is so important.

Another reason to move beyond sole reliance on antibiotics is of course that two million people in the US annually are sickened by antibiotic-resistant infections, and 23,000 people die. Meanwhile, the CDC estimates that half of all antibiotic use is unnecessary! We must turn to natural alternatives both to supplement and to complement antibiotics or pay the price of millions of unnecessary deaths when the big pandemics arrive, as they surely will in time.

Action Alert! Intravenous vitamin C could be a powerful, inexpensive, and safe tool in the battle against antibiotic-resistant “superbugs,” as well as in chemotherapy. It is already being used in burn units across the country. Ask NIH and its National Cancer Institute to fund human trials on IV-C. Please take action today!

    Why do I always get secure3 convio site when I click on “Take Action”? I’d like to see where you link to. What do MS & MD fundraisers have to do with you?

    My Mom died 2 years ago from an iatrogenic infection. She probably wouldn’t have with iv vit C. Long, horrible story, I’m fighting the same reason Mom got that infection. She listened to too many contemporary doctors. I did for 10 years and kept getting worse. Still need one to do blood tests, but they now know I am serious when I say “NO!” Using targeted supplements and getting better – still fighting iron anemia. Doctor prescribed iron infusion, MediCare doesn’t cover (need at home since I’m too weak to drive). I had to retire years ago because of it. The home care doesn’t accept my secondary insurance. I was reading Linus Pauling in the ’60s, because if him my family seldom get colds, etc.

    wow this article blew my mind i dont like to take antibiotics because on a number of instintes they have made me sicker than what they were supposed cure. Tumeric the spice is also a good alternative to antibiotics, make you think twice about how bad witch doctors really were.

    • J.E.W.

      I have been on both sides of the spectrum. Antibiotics have saved my life and not to have them available is unconscionable. But because of harsh antibiotics I developed poor gut flora and over growth of yeast and allergies to everything. This was in the late 70’s, and I got lucky and found a doctor who would treat me outside the “medical box of thinking”. Vitamin C, H202, Nyastin, vitamin B shots, and Allergy shots with a strict diet was all a part of getting my body healthy again. I have spent my whole life with health issues because of antibiotics that saved my life……..More study does need to be done, but it needs to be researched by honest, unbiased researcher/scientist/doctors.

    Please do human trials on IV-C. I know Big Pharma won’t make money on vitamin c, but helping sick people get better is what should be happening. We are creating a sick society where the superbugs are taking over. Too much antibiotic use…..Too much chemical spraying of our food crops.

    Most of what your have said is pure trash! The studies you quote are inconclusive. Heavy divalent metals are excreted in a number of ways (body and head hair for example). Studies based on urilogical results are incomplete. Many antibiotics actually complex with heavy metals by chelating with them! Alas, they are no longer effective antibiotics. But, the heavy metal is removed from circulation. You are pandering to the uninformed. I have a PhD. in Chemistry from MIT and have over 100 publications in strictly refereed journals. What is in your academic wallet???

    • sandra

      Mercury is also excreted into fecal material. Thus fecal metals tests. Urological studies inconclusive? I think not. Chelation is given to patients AFTER a 6 hour urine test, with provocation by DMSA or DMPS. The lead or mercury level determined by the urine test is used by most insurance companies and they must pay for chelation when a specific level is reached or exceeded.

    One would not like to choose one kind of sickness for another, and Mercury Poisoning is probably worse than many things one might take an antibiotic for.

    • sandra

      Vitamin C, high dose chelates mercury, lead and other heavy metals. Ascorbate enemas (not ascorbic acid, but sodium ascorbate) were used when chelation was not legal in the US. Very difficult information to find. Pauling wrote in his notes of a 30 sodium ascorbate retention enema.

  • This is very compelling information.

    I would be interested to know if Lyme Disease is one of the ‘super infections’ that can be helped with IV C…..

    And… if the neurological diseases like Parkinsons can be aleviated by mercury chelation, or if that is only useful as prevention.

    • sandra

      High does vitamin C may help, Dr. Thomas Levy treated a woman with high dose Vit C as documented in one of his books. He used very high dose…………..this info should be on the internet with references from his book.

      There are few places if any, that will take on the liability of high enough dose vitamin C to put Lyme in remission. I believe Levy used several infusions over a three day period as high as 100 grams per IV.

    An MRSA infection led to the death of my aunt two weeks ago. If I had the choice I would have used hydrogen peroxide IV’s along with vitamin C IV’s. H2O2 IV’s saved my mother-in-law after antibiotics failed to help her. I made a bed in the back of my SUV and took her a hundred miles to a doctor that would give her H2O2. I thought it sounded bazar at the time, over twenty years ago, but I am a firm believer today. She was going to die anyway so how could it hurt I thought. She is now 94 years old. By the way she was bedfast before the IV and went shopping the next day. If the NIH won’t fund IVC research they sure won’t study IV hydrogen peroxide.

    • sandra

      Good points about IV peroxide. I know several Lyme patients who use it regularly and stay in remission.

    While it would be nice if we could get the NIH on board with IV vitamin C trial, they are nearly as corrupt as the CDC. I think it’s unlikely they would ever fund any such research, since it wouldn’t be profitable for drug companies if vitamin C were found to be a rival for synthetic drugs. Even if they did run a trial, it’s likely they would skew the data and any subsequent reports would be unreliable.

    There is a pervasive and chronic corruption within the government agencies responsible for protecting the public health, and the recent scandal over the vaccine injury cover up at the CDC is why I have absolutely no confidence in them. If you missed the “Hear This Well” campaign done by outraged parents of autistic children, you should search for it and watch the hundreds of families devastated by the vaccines that the CDC has been telling us for over a decade is “generally regarded as safe.”

    The people who protected drug company profits rather than the public and their children have blood on their hands; they deserve long prison sentences for the unbelievable suffering they’ve caused, and the CDC needs to be defunded. They can’t be trusted, ever again, and neither can the NIH. Both agencies are engaged in depopulation activities using vaccines and allopathic medicine which is completely under control of the globalists whose stated goal is the death of three quarter of earth’s population. No, I’m not okay with asking criminals to start human trials or giving them money to waste on cover ups of the truth.

    • Hey- don’t forget the FDA has just outlawed all natural Vit C from IV treatment- from now on it will only be synthetic Vit C

    • Jerry Sherman

      exactly

    • sandra

      Get NIH on board with vitamin C research???? You think they do not already know how effective C is? With all of Klenner and Pauling’s research? They are not on board by choice. NIH does not originate studies anyway, they just approve or disapprove them.

      Remember, Linus Pauling won the Nobel Peace Prize for his actual research on Vitamin C…………..so the facts are out there for anyone in the medical field to educate themselves with.

  • You folks need to get a grip. Without antibiotics, much of the world including many, many in the USA, such as your self, could be dead! Be responsible and be truthful stop trying to sell whatever natural mendacity you push. Or better yet, leave the antibiotics for us, when you get a really, really bad MERSA infection, you take your products. Deal?? Please??

    • Davy777

      Dr. Jean (I presume you’re THE Dr. Jean?) You just lowered your credibility by calling us liars. (“…natural mendacity you push…” Huh?) I had an aggressive case of MRSA and, yes, 28 days of mega-doses of vancomycin “cured” me. However, I’m told about 20% of the cases are fatal. Do they even try IVC? Or do they just let them die? Or, now with this new information, try to remove all traces of HG with chlorella or MCP? If you’re so gung-ho about antibiotics, please show us the recent independent studies showing full and complete safety.
      And, while you’re at it, please explain why they have to made with HG or AL in the first place. Have they even tried formulating them without using proven neurotoxins? You seem to be far ahead of us so, please, be willing to at least listen to other people, show some degree of concern and calmly discuss the issue, instead of dismissing it out of hand..
      Please note: no one has called you a liar.

        HG assuming mercury or Hg. AL meaning aluminum or Al.

        And I agree with you on the IV Vit C, high dose.

        What is MCP?

        And to whomever posted about low blood pH, that is so tightly controlled by the body that differences in pH using bicarb or acids are miniscule Sodium bicarbonate kills fungus, period. Other things kill fungus such as hydrogen peroxide.

      But you doctors need to support antibiotic use by making sure your patients have a very good probiotic regime after the course of antibiotics is over. This is why we see so many people with Candida Albicans overgrowths that cause cancer, alzheimers, MS, diabetes, etc- and poor health- including recurring sinus infections. This pathogen is NOT being properly addressed, diagnosed or treated correctly in this nation. It should be a doctors top priority since it causes so many negative health problems.

    • Bev

      Well Dr. Linus Pauling discovered that high does of vit. c did in fact kill bacteria and virus. He also discovered that high does also killed cancer. Get a grip pleaseyourself. It’s been know for sometime now in your medical circle that anti-biotics are no longer effective. Whjy is that again? Oh I know, the doc was very unwilling to tell the patient that for a virus you need an anti-viral but oh no the patient wanted an anti-biotic. I thought the word “doctor” meant teacher and weren’t you the guys that wrote the prescription. So instead of the anit-viral you wrote it for the anti-bacterial and you blame this problem now on your patients. If I leave my health in the AMA’s hands I will die. I’ll take my chances with the “Alternative” side. At least they treat the whole body and not just the symptom. Give me a break and don’t cause any more harm.

      • sandra

        Vitamin C, very high dose, inhibits replication in viruses, it does not kill them. AIDS and Herpes are kept in check with high dose vitamin C. AIDS, Herpes, and Lyme both travel through the body via nerve synapses. That traveling along the nerves can be inhibited with C, high dose. Antivirals are notorious failures and toxic so I would never use them, only C.

  • Many conditions such as sinus infections are from fungus and would be treated best with anti fungals such as Diflucan or Nystatin or anti fungal supplements ( olive leaf extract, oreganol oil)

    • shano

      You need a 5% to 20% solution of sodium bicarbonate to kill fungus. The leading expert, Dr. Tullio Simoncini in Italy, has a protocol to end these infections once and for all. It includes baking soda, iodine and I add to this magnesium chloride and a fermented food like vinegar or kombucha.

  • No matter how hard we try to minimize our exposures to chemicals and toxins, they keep showing up in our bodies, sources like mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic, aluminum, plastic by-products, radioactive particles and volatile organic compounds, simply because they are everywhere in our environment, including cosmetics, deodorants, and the damage they do, causes a host of illnesses and diseases.

    Toxins store in our fat cells, making it hard to lose weight and hard to eliminate toxins. They interfere with our immune system. They mess with our memory, clarity and focus. They disrupt the endocrine systems, affecting our energy, sleep and quality. To sum it up, toxins are unavoidable… they are in the food we eat, water we drink and air we breathe.

    This is why we need to detox on a daily basis, safely and effectively.

  • Millions of people take supplements, yet 95% or more of all vitamin supplements are filled with synthetics (i.e. petroleum derivatives, coal tar, and isolates derived from chemicals, toxic binders, filers, etc.) that the body doesn’t readily recognize. For instance, if your Vitamin C label reads Ascorbic Acid, then you are ingesting fermented corn, hydrochloric acid and acetone. Vitamin C (ascoric acid) represents only the out ring that serves as a protective shell for the entire Vitamin C complex. Real vitamin C found in whole foods such as fruits and vegetables contains eight components. The components are rutin, bio-flavanoids (vitamin P), factor K, Factor J, Factor P, tyrosinase, ascorbinogen, and ascorbic acid.

    • sandra

      One is not ingesting HCL (hydrochloric acid) when taking vitamin C. The stomach produces HCL and food cannot be digested without it. Real vitamin C found in the food items you describe would never be sufficient for use in treatments that require high doses such as AIDS and Herpes infections.

      Most if not all produce is radiated before it reaches the stores, destroying many of the vitamins. Another reason food is not a reliable source of vitamin C at doses required for optimum health.

      I agree that many vitamins and supplements have toxic ingredients, however, there are more pure forms if one looks diligently. For example, the Vitamin C Foundation has sodium ascorbate made from non GMO corn from Scotland. One can order tapioca-derived vitamin C on the internet and potato starch-derived vitamin C.

      I have searched and can find no source for your claim that acetone is in ascorbic acid.

      Vitamin C is a specific organic chemical molecular chain composed of carbons, hydrogen and oxygen atoms in a specific configuration. There is no separate outer ring that is different from anything inside it.

      Rutin is not vitamin C nor does it compose Vitamin C, it is a flavonoid. Flavonoids are antioxidants. I have never heard or nor was able to find ascorbinogen.

      If you read Linus Pauling’s information on the Vitamin C Foundation website, you will see that while the items you list may be healthful, they are not vitamin c or ascorbic acid or sodium ascorbate.

      Most if not all produce is radiated before it reaches the stores, destroying many of the vitamins. Another reason food is not a reliable source of vitamin C at doses required for optimum health.

      I agree that many vitamins and supplements have toxic ingredients, however, there are more pure forms if one looks diligently. For example, the Vitamin C Foundation has sodium ascorbate made from non GMO corn from Scotland. One can order tapioca-derived vitamin C on the internet and potato starch-derived vitamin C.

      I have searched and can find no source for your claim that acetone is in ascorbic acid.

      Vitamin C is a specific organic chemical molecular chain composed of carbons, hydrogen and oxygen atoms in a specific configuration. There is no separate outer ring that is different from anything inside it.

      Rutin is not vitamin C nor does it compose Vitamin C, it is a flavonoid. Flavonoids are antioxidants. I have never heard or nor was able to find ascorbinogen.

      If you read Linus Pauling’s information on the Vitamin C Foundation website, you will see that while the items you list may be healthful, they are not vitamin c or ascorbic acid or sodium ascorbate.

    Don’t know much about the vitamin C but would like to share this. My wife and I had problems with colds and viruses. I started taking Vitamin D3 and later K2 and Pro biotics, (D helps in the making of calcium and K2 sends it where it’s suppose to go. To your bones and not your lungs skin deposits heart etc.) In over 4 years no colds or flu’s. I take it only in the Fall, Winter and early Spring. I work out side and get plenty of D from the sun. Less sun during those months mentioned and the angle is lower. That’s our experience. Oh my wife is taking 5,000 units a day and her D levels are normal. She has had an injury that has kept her inside for quite sometime. I take 1,000 per day and if I feel something coming on when I’m not taking it I take a 5,000 one and extra probiotics. Next day I’m fine. That has worked 5 times in the early Spring this year as I was trying to see how early I could quit for the summer. So this vitamin C study could turn up some very good benefits. Hey folks! All of this nutrient supplement stuff works a lot better to when you quit eating all of the trash food out there. Just sharing our experience.

  • Antibioitics are very bad for your health. I was battling a candida overgrowth and went to the dentist to have my mercury fillings removed, before the candida was almost completely gone. I had to have a tooth pulled due to a bad root canal years before. They gave me antibiotics and bam my candida sprung back to life like a snowstorm in Anctartica powerful and fast. It tooks me over 6 months to get rid of the damage that the antibiotics did to my digestive system from just 5 days on antibiotics which I didn’t even need. Antibiotics are highly over prescribed and most of the time will do more damage than help. Educate everyone you can about the dangers of antibiotics they are not helping, unless serious life threatening infections occur.
