Science At Last Admits Bedbugs Bring Disease

No less distinguished authority than the Center for Disease Control issued a report this week admitting what the overwhelming majority of scientists have denied for years:  bedbugs carry diseases!  The peer-reviewed study based in Vancouver, Canada, in inner-city high drug use neighborhoods found that these pests actually transmit drug-resistant bacteria.  Researchers collected five bedbugs from three patients and found that:  “Three bedbugs from one patient contained methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), and the two from the other patients each contained vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE).”

 Published in the Center’s journal, “Emerging Infectious Diseases,” the study pointed out that these bugs could be the reason that MRSA bacteria, a staph “superbug” that is resistant to common antibiotics, is spreading among hospital patients.  Mike Stobbe of the Associate Press, writes that MRSA is deadly if it travels through the skin into the bloodstream.  Supposedly, VRE is less dangerous. 

 Dr. Marc Romney, a specialist in infectious diseases and one of the group’s researchers, said that they noticed that when the number of bedbugs spiked in a slum neighborhood near Vancouver’s waterfront there was a simultaneously spike in the number of MRSA cases in hospitals and clinics in the area.  Before that, most of the research was around health care workers, from whom it was assumed that MRSA was spread.  “Even though this is a small study, it suggests that bedbugs may be playing a role in the transmission of MRSA in inner city populations where bedbug infestations are a problem,” Romney said.
 
 This especially true in view of the fact that national governments do not really have effective deterrents against this nasty vermin.  While several national governmental divisions have invited exterminators to closed meetings on bedbug infestations, apparently they have not discovered effective ways to permanently kill these pests by generations––since DDT was banned some years ago.  Hopefully, now with this explosive new research, local and national governments and private entities will commit the necessary funds for more effective research.

 The rapid increase of insects harmful to mankind, such as lice, bedbugs, mosquitoes, etc., is one sign of the end-times.  Many of the coming plagues promised in the Book of Revelation coincide with those illustrated in Exodus (chapter eight) and Psalms where God used detrimental insects to force Egypt to free the Israelites: “He sent divers sorts of flies among them, which devoured them . . .” (Psalms 78: 45; “He spake, and there came divers sorts of flies, and lice in all their coasts” (Psalms 105: 31).  At the same time that harmful insect populations such as bedbugs are increasing today, there is a rapid decline in populations of insects which are helpful to mankind and other animals, such as bees and butterflies.   And again, the scientific world is not trying to find out why!
