43,381 Viruses Found in Sewage, Many Unknown to Scientists

Sewage samples obtained by scientists in Pittsburgh, Barcelona and Addis Ababa were found to contain 43,381 viruses — of which only 3,000 are currently charted by mainstream scientists.

Among the viruses found in the sewage samples were the human papilloma virus (HPV), the diarrhea-causing Norwalk virus, and the common cold virus. There were 16 total known disease-causing viruses out of the 3,000 known viruses present in the sewage samples.

The findings of the study, which highlight the vast number of unidentified viruses dwelling in our sewer systems, are hosted in the online journal mBIO, published by the American Society of Microbiology. Considering that only 3,000 of the 43,381 viruses examined have been charted and identified, there could be a large number of superbugs and other powerful viruses routinely developing and going through mutation due to exposure to thousands of other viruses and bacteria within the sewage system. Improper sewage control could serve as a breeding ground for new strands of viruses and a cocktail of existing ones.

“Our knowledge of the viral universe is limited to a tiny fraction of the viruses that exist,” the study’s authors write.

With over 2 million known species inhabiting the earth, each has adapted to live with viruses that live on or within its members. These viruses can often spread to other species through mutation, such as the H5N1 bird flu which mutated to affect humans. While there may be cases of human weaponization of various viruses, leading to even more complications, even ‘natural’ mutations pose a risk.

As of right now, scientists report that over 80% of these viruses lurking in the sewage are not yet capable of infecting humans nor similar complex organisms made up of complicated cells. Problems arise, however, as these viruses are given the proper environment for mutation to occur, subsequently expanding its potential ability to infect a wider range of organisms. While on such a small scale this could take unknown amounts of time, the viruses which are currently affecting livestock and other animals may soon experience mutation to the degree required to affect humans.

Boosting your immune system is the only way to adequately protect against any foreign invader, whether it is a virus or bacterial strand. Choosing nutrient-dense foods and optimizing your vitamin D levels will allow for your body to fight off disease far better than pharmaceuticals.

And each one of those sewer viruses can be found wiggling around, imitating politicians and other odd lifeforms.

Meanwhile, in the sewers of wanton promiscuity (luv), gonorrhea seems to be nearly resistant to antibiotics:

Beta Glucans are also extremely helpful for a strong immune system. I sometimes wonder if they are so effective, that they will eventually be outlawed.

I will also be tying the vitamin D optimization mentioned here.

Effective allround broadspectrum (cheap!) germkiller: NaC2 = natriumbicarbonate = sodiumbicarbonate = 'bicarb' = baking soda - drink half a teaspoon in glass of water, max. 6x per day - also for cleaning !!

I worked for the NYCTA for a long time as a conductor , flagman , and worked in system safety.
The subway would be a great place to obtain samples for the following reasons.
most if the service is under ground , lack of sunlight (no ultra violet ) allows the bugs to prosper. In the tunnel areas raw sewage is found in the troth between running rails , It would be interesting to see a public epidemiological survey of the health effects on the 3 million people that use the service during the two way daily commute.

Don't eat seafood from the gulf. Way before the BP oil gusher, raw sewage was the norm, esp. after Katrina and other storms as raw sewage, chemicals and dead bodies of people and animals drifted into the gulf and other filth from stream and river run offs. Yet people still sell and eat contaminated seafood some end up with viruses some serious , e coli and salmonella. You can't fix stupid.
