Is it time to stop using antibiotics to make farm animals fatter?

Antimicrobial resistance: global report on surveillance 2014

Author - WHO Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) threatens the effective prevention and treatment of an ever-increasing range of infections caused by bacteria, parasites, viruses and fungi. An increasing number of governments around the world are devoting efforts to a problem so serious that it threatens the achievements of modern medicine. A post-antibiotic era – in which common infections and minor injuries can kill – far from being an apocalyptic fantasy, is instead a very real possibility for the 21st Century.

Interestingly, a new product that puts bacteria back onto skinhas just totally sold out after an article in the New York Times went viral - My No-Soap, No-Shampoo, Bacteria-Rich Hygiene Experiment "The most extreme case, David Whitlock, the M.I.T. chemical engineer who invented AO+ has not showered for 12 years" The article quotes Pollan “As a civilization, we’ve just spent the better part of a century doing our unwitting best to wreck the human-associated microbiota." We dropped them an email and got this back:

Thanks for your interest in AOBiome and AO+™ Mist.

We are overwhelmed and honored by how many people have reached out to learn with us and join our journey to discover how to return our skin to balance and harmony.  We are excited to have you along, not as a customer but as a partner, sharing our experiences as we reduce, and perhaps eliminate, the use of harsh chemicals that have altered our skin’s natural micro biome.

The interest generated from the New York Times Article, “My No-Soap, No-Shampoo, Bacteria-Rich Hygiene Experiment” written by Julia Scott (and segment on Good Morning America) has been beyond overwhelming, which supports our belief that people are becoming more aware of the importance of nurturing a healthy skin biome.

We are currently sold out of our entire supply of AO+ Mist™.  We are working with our lab to drastically increase capacity and expect to have more AO+™ Mist in stock within 2 weeks.

We will post updates and other related information on our facebook page and website.  We will also send you an email you when we have more AO+™ Mist in stock.

Thanks for your understanding and support.
