Why Am I Still Sick? The Silent Role of Biofilms in Chronic Disease
Subtitles available in French, Spanish, simplified Chinese, traditional Chinese. The most unusual, informative documentary ever made on the root cause of diseases that affect (infect) one-third of Western Civilization. Interviews with doctors, researchers and patients suffering from such conditions, and striking graphics identify the multifaceted roles of biofilms in causing persistent disease and offer startling revelations: - How bacterial biofilms form sequestered communities within all parts of the human body; - The way in which biofilms help microbes “talk” among themselves, with other species, and exchange genetic programs specific to antibiotic resistance; - The startling numbers of patients ping-ponged within a medical system of outdated diagnostics; - Critical linkages between oral hygiene and systemic health. While the film produced by The Arthroplasty Patient Foundation paints a grim picture of the diagnostics infrastructure within the American medical system, it presents available solutions for patients through current breakthroughs in molecular diagnostics and treatments. These biofilm innovations prevent chronic suffering, save lives, limbs, and many millions of Medicare dollars.
