On average, one new person living in the U.S. contracts an antibiotic-resistant infection every 11 seconds, while one U.S.-living person dies every 15 minutes from an antibiotic-resistant infection – a sky-high figure compared to the number of deaths associated with leisure activities like vaping that the government is eagerly trying to ban for alleged "public safety" reasons.
"When Clostridioides difficile, a bacterium which is not typically resistant but can cause deadly diarrhea and is associated with antibiotic use, is added to these, the U.S. toll of all the threats in the report exceeds 3 million infections and 48,000 deaths," Homeland Security Today further reveals.
It is now clear that more Americans are killed by pharmaceutical antibiotics than by pretty much all other major causes of death. And yet authorities are reluctant to make any mention of this publicly, let alone issue a plea for Big Pharma's death chemicals to be banned in the interest of public health.
Based on this latest data, we also now know that the actual number of deaths associated with antibiotic-resistant infections is roughly twice the number previously claimed by the government back in 2013. In other words, health authorities have been relying on inaccurate information as they continue to justify the overuse and abuse of antibiotic drugs.

In total, the CDC has now identified 18 different "germs" that it says pose an antibiotic resistance threat, the two newest additions being carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter and drug-resistant Candida auris.
The latter is a type of yeast infection that causes candidiasis in humans, and thanks to Big Pharma it's now become a deadly superbug with no conventional cure.
Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, put together a 46-minute Counterthink documentary about Candida auris that explains how this newer superbug strain is a serious threat to public health, seeing as how those infected with it have a 50 percent chance of dying within 90 days.
"The CDC has reported hundreds of infections across seven states, and is tracking over 1,000 'colonizations' where the fungal strain has infected human carriers who spread it to others," Adams reported back in April.
"There is no vaccine, which is probably why the corporate media almost never mentions this superbug. Even worse, this superbug fungal strain is a product of chemical agriculture, and as long as the agricultural giants continue to inundate crops with fungicides, more fungal superbugs are going to emerge and threaten humanity."
Other antibiotic-resistant infections that the CDC claims are on the rise include drug-resistant Neisseria gonorrhoeae, a sexually transmitted disease, extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae, and erythromycin-resistant group A Streptococcus, infections from the latter of which have quadrupled since the release of the CDC's 2013 report on superbugs.
So, what we can conclude from all of this is that the pharmaceutical industry is far and away the biggest killer of Americans today. Big Pharma also rakes in the most cash on the backs of sick and injured people, all with the blessing of federal authorities that defend its chemical poisons as "science-based medicine."
