Blood poisoning: third leading cause of death


Blood poisoning: the third leading cause of death in Germany: At the international conference “Trauma, Shock, Inflammation and Sepsis” from March 9 - 13, 2010 in the Großhadern Clinic at the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich, Professor of Surgery Eugen Faist again pointed out the dangers severe blood poisoning in Germany.

Around 420 people get blood poisoning (sepsis) in Germany every day. That is around 154,000 people a year. 60,000 people die from it. One of the reasons, according to Faist, is the fact that nowadays more and more elderly and very sick people are operated on, who are more prone to sepsis than younger people. One reason is an intact immune system. If very aggressive germs enter our organism, those affected by sepsis would not have enough to counteract this and the intruders can "flood" Ogranism.

At the international congress, at which around 2000 Beuscher are expected, causes and consequences, as well as new strategies in dealing with severe blood poisoning are to be presented. There are already medical doctors who use stem cells and novel concepts of anti-inflammatory to reduce the number of deaths want to halve through sepsis. In naturopathy, it is pointed out that a well-functioning immune system should be emphasized in advance. (Thorsten Fischer, naturopath osteopathy, 03/10/2010)
