One of the greatest dangers facing mankind is bacterial resistance. Mainline antibiotics are having trouble killing many of the most dangerous pathogens, such as MRSA, C. difficile, tuberculosis and many others.
The problem is that bacteria evolve to resist treatment, and the more antibiotics they face, the faster they evolve. Conventional cleaning methods, which use harsh “disinfecting” chemicals, are another contributing factor to pathogen evolution. The ongoing increase in hospital-acquired infections, food recalls and chemical sensitivity issues illustrate the flaws in this approach.
The problem is incomplete cleaning. Even if a chemical cleaner kills 99.99 percent of pathogens, the remaining 0.01 percent can divide rapidly and come back strong. Even worse, the genetic advantage that helped them survive the initial attack will protect future generations as they are probably resistant to whatever antibiotic or disinfectant they survived.
However, probiotic bacteria do not create drug-resistant pathogens. Though the combination of the proprietary pH neutral chemistry and the probiotic microbials in the Z BioScience products are not technically disinfectants or biocides, they have been proven to clean surfaces better (as evidenced by extensive ATP testing) without the danger of creating drug-resistant pathogens. The probiotic bacteria used in the Z BioScience probiotic products are all considered GRAS (Generally Regarded as Save) by the FDA and the chemicals used are all from one of following lists: EPA CFR 180.950(a), (b), (c), (e), (f) or Inert Ingredients List A. or List B.
