Microbes/disease/antibiotic resistance "One of the many reasons for the lack of progress in dealing with the phenomenon of 'resistance' seems to be the flawed 'war metaphor' which reflects the dominant paradigm shaping our relationship to the microbial world. Experience in tackling infectious diseases is showing that antibiotics are no longer the 'magic bullets' they were once conceived to be while bacteria are also not the 'enemy' to be eliminated through any means whatsoever. We need accurate knowledge of and actions to prevent and treat the relatively few pathogenic threats rather than a general fear of all microbes. Chief among the insights that new research in microbiology is providing is the extent to which human life is closely intertwined with that of the microbial world."

Engineer says Mozart makes microbes more productive The owners of a German sewage treatment plant called on scientists to investigate Wednesday after they claimed playing Mozart motivates the plant's microbes and makes them more productive. Roland Meinusch, manager of the plant in Treuenbrietzen said by playing Mozart's Magic Flute on a half-hour loop, the plant produced 1,000 cubic meters (35,300 cubic feet) less sewage sludge than normal, saving $13,600 over the past year. The harder the microbes work, the more sewage they digest which produces more clean water and less sludge, he told The Local news website. "And the less sludge we produce, the less we have to pay to farmers for them to put it on their fields," Meinusch added. He said the plant was contacted by a company making special loudspeakers that had apparently achieved positive results at an Austrian sewage plant.

A question for researchers: why does BP release un-tested synthetic microbes when we already have natural organic microbes that will eat oil? Excerpt:*

"The physical symptoms of the BP Flu, BP Crud, Blue Flu, or whatever name you choose to call it, are as unique as the synthetic bacteria being used in the Gulf. Since mankind is carbon based, how do these synthetically created hydrogen and carbon hungry bacteria react to human flesh? Internal bleeding as well as ulcerating skin lesions are the physical signs of their computer created DNA signature. BP and their paid minions have released a synthetic biological plague in the Gulf of Mexico and it's out of control. The entire world is a victim of their greed and foolishness. By playing the role of creator, they have begun a very dangerous game with infinite repercussions for life as we know it." article recommends bioremediation for oil spill clean-up

misc Bioremediation of Heavy metal ions and Organic pollutants by Microbes, by Dr. Rani Faryal, a new textbook for microbiology students

told ya so: LOS ANGELES - Dec 9, 2010. A soon-to-be released independent television documentary interviews marine scientists who argue that the chemical dispersant used to treat the largest ocean oil spill in American history is a case of the cure being far more deadly to this highly productive marine ecosystem than the disease (oil) was. The film argues that instead of this harsh chemical, the environmentally friendly technology known as bio-remediation should have been used. Bioremediation is scientifically proven to speed up natural processes such as oil-eating microbes to clean up oil spills. Despite strong scientific documentation that bioremediation technology could have restored the Gulf to health in a relatively short time, interview subjects say government agencies are actively preventing the clean-up efforts through the implementation of extensive bureaucratic red tape rather than working to rehabilitate the nation's most productive biological and commercial ecosystems. The thirty minute documentary "The Hidden Crisis in the Gulf" produced by The Earth Organization (TEO) is being released this week in Louisiana cities with subsequent airings across the other Gulf States during December and January. Its nationwide release is scheduled beginning Monday, Jan 10, 2011.

Social evolution of toxic metal bioremediation in Pseudomonas aeruginosa, by Siobhán O'Brien, David J. Hodgson and Angus Buckling (abstract)

Surfactant-assisted enhancement of bioremediation rate for hexavalent chromium by water extract of Sajina (Moringa oleifera) flower The presence of hexavalent chromium in waste water is a serious environmental problem due to its toxicity and carcinogenicity. Bioremediation is an efficient alternative to the conventional chemical methods of treatment. Bioremediation of toxic hexavalent chromium is done by the reduction of hexavalent chromium to relatively less toxic trivalent chromium. In this study, water extract of Sajina flower, which contains different types of reducing components such as sugar, amino acid, is used as reductant and the rate of bioremediation is increased by treatment with anionic and neutral surfactants.

Phytoremediation of soil and water in chronic kidney disease (CKD) affected areas a case history in Sri Lanka. Kelaniya University researchers used plants to remove heavy metals from the environment in areas with high rates of deadly CKD. "Phytoremediation has been defined as the use of plants to remove or inactivate pollutants from soils and wastewaters. It all started in 1948 when Pichi Sermolli, an Italian scientist observed an unusual accumulation of nickel in some plants. Today scientists know of hundreds of plant species capable of selectively absorbing and accumulating specific elements and substances without showing toxicity symptoms—they are known as hyper accumulators. . . . Plant shoots can be harvested and the heavy metals can be extracted." Dr. Kochian at the Plant, Soil and Nutrtion Lab, New York, said that the flower phlaspi does well with heavy metals, and also cleans up radioisotopes.

Conference proceedings: Phytotechnologies - Preventing Exposures, Improving Public Health International Journal of Phytoremediation, Volume 15, Issue 9, 2013, The 8th International Phytotechnology Conference-Portland, Oregon 2011. Abstract: Phytotechnologies have potential to reduce the amount or toxicity of deleterious chemicals and agents, and thereby, can reduce human exposures to hazardous substances. As such, phytotechnologies are tools for primary prevention in public health. Recent research demonstrates phytotechnologies can be uniquely tailored for effective exposure prevention in a variety of applications. In addition to exposure prevention, plants can be used as sensors to identify environmental contamination and potential exposures.

Dalhousie researcher part of project on microbes, 'little engines' of oceans, by Melanie Patten, The Canadian Press, When you think of bacteria, you always think about (how) bacteria make you sick, they make your food spoil, but most bacteria are really good for the environment. They have a very specific function, they recycle the nutrients in the soil or in the ocean. Also, a lot of bacteria can do photosynthesis . . . and they're at the base of the food chain, so they produce all the food that the fish will eat eventually."

Marine Bacteria Efficiently Clean Oil Spills Plants, bacterial decomposers or enzymes are used to remove contaminants and restore the balance of nature in the wake of pollution incidents, explains Roman Netzer at SINTEF.

Journal of Petroleum & Environmental Biotechnology download a free article - "bacterial isolates were isolated and assessed for the biodegradation of crude oil and phenol in the waste water gravimetrically and by spectrophotometry respectively. The isolated bacterial strains were identified as Alcaligenes odorans, Bacillus subtilis, Corynebacterium propinquum and Pseudomonas aeruginosa which were inoculated into waste water in the form of bacterial consortium. After inoculation of consortium, it was found that oil and phenol contents in the waste water reduced up to 70% and 85% respectively via bioremediation."

FMC to team with university researchers investigating bioremediation approaches to the Gulf Coast oil spill The Texas Institute for Applied Environmental Research at Tarleton State University*, Texas A & M Galveston Dept. of Marine Biology*, Tarleton State Dept. of Engineering* and FMC have formed a research group that will combine naturally occurring microbes with nutrients and PermeOx Plus®, FMC's engineered oxygen-releasing chemistry, to "supercharge" the bacteria for the aerobic digestion of the weathered oil.
