- This article in Nature (http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v501/n7465/full/nature12504.html) links topoisomerase inhibitors to the expression of Autism related genes. As I’m sure you know, fluoroquinolones are topoisomerase inhibitors.
- Fluoroquinolones adduct to bacterial DNA, as described in this article – http://www.jbc.org/content/273/42/27668.full. Please see the attached note from a retired toxicologist who was severely adversely effected by a fluoroquinolone, for a description of how fluoroquinolones adversely effect human DNA. These drugs adduct to DNA, just like Agent Orange, and they are given out like candy.
- Recent media articles about how people have suffered severe CNS damage after being in the ICU. Fluoroquinolones are utilized commonly in the ICU. Perhaps it would behoove you to make the connection between the NEJM article noting that people stop being able to think after a visit to the ICU and the severe CNS effects of fluoroquinolones. https://www.google.com/#q=nejm+patient+in+intensive+care+lose+memory Also, Lynn Spalding, the patient who was being treated for a urinary tract infection whose body was found in the hospital stairwell was more than likely given fluoroquinolones to treat her UTI. A severe adverse reaction could have caused the events that led to her death – http://www.cnn.com/2013/10/09/justice/body-in-hospital-stairwell/
- Please read the comments under the NYT article about the dangers of fluoroquinolones. http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/10/popular-antibiotics-may-carry-serious-side-effects/?_r=1 NONE of these people are lying or exaggerating. In fact, many have reactions that are more severe than they describe because it is quite difficult to verbalize your problems when EVERYTHING is going wrong in your body and mind.
