New Class of Antibiotics and Pain Killers From the Depths of Ocean


Do you believe in prophecies? I do!  After I read the prophecy of 2012 by Dr. Paul Dinakaran of Jesus Calls ministry, I kept my ears and eyes wide open to see if any research study comes by. But I could not find any in 2012 but a research study caught my eye at the end of January 2013. I know you are getting more curious and let me explain. These were the prophetic words


“My grace shall come upon the Atlantic ocean where the depth of the sea shall bring forth great forms of life to sustain mankind in the realms of medicine especially in growing tissues for healing and health. He that hears my voice shall be careful to invest in it. Behold My Angel shall be seen when these are found in the ocean. My glory shall shine forth in them.”



A new research investigation done by the OSHU researchers in collaboration with several other institutions has found amazing scientific treasure in depths of the ocean. They say that the next class of powerful medications may currently reside at the bottom of the ocean. The scientists carried out two separate studies on molluscs. These include snails, clams, squids and their bacterial companions.

What caught the fascination of the researchers were shipworms. Basically they are molluscs and they use their shells as drills and eat wood by making burrows into the wood fibres. They are not worms at all but are a group of clams with long soft naked bodies. They are called as the termites of the sea.


The research team found that one form of bacteria utilized by ship worms secretes a powerful antibiotic that holds great promise for human diseases. This research is of great importance because antibiotic resistance is a serious human issue.

Now the next study was made on cone snails. These are also molluscs. The scientists found that the bacteria carried by the cone snails produce a chemical that is neuroactive. It has an effect on the function of neurons or the nerve cells in the brain. This may help in treatment of pain.

According to Edward Thompson PHD., Chairman of Dept. of Science and Engineering OHSU, “Looking at microbes in the ocean has enormous potential. It could contribute to the development of alternative fuels while at the same time opening a path for biomedical research in largely uncharted territory.”


And according to the prophecy if you are wise enough you will invest in this field of research.


Take care,

All You Need to Know About the Dangers of Talc for Your Baby

If you use talcum powder for your baby, then take a few minutes to read this article. Talcum powder is a mineral based product made up of elements like silicon, magnesium, and oxygen. It absorbs moisture pretty quickly and helps to cut down on friction. 
Mothers use it to keep their babies’ bottom dry and rash free. So far so good. But health experts warn you about the dangers of talc for your baby. 
The American Academy of Paediatrics advises that talcum powder can cause breathing trouble and severe lung damage for babies if your baby inhales the particles. Talc powders contain minute granules which can quickly pass through your babies’ airways.
If your baby inhales the tiny particles, it can lead to lung irritation and respiratory distress. Even asbestos free talcum powder can irritate and inflame your baby’s nasal airways.
The results can be more drastic if your baby is at high risk of respiratory illness. The high risk includes premature babies, babies who've had many respiratory …
