Default Re: Dire warning on superbug bacterias- "Apocalyptic Scenario"

That's what happens when your own society sets itself up for these superbugs. We give chickens and other farm animals all kinds of human antibiotics, raise millions of them in close quarters, then ship them out so airborne pathogens that survived the antibiotics can spread to us.
Also, doctors are over prescribing antibiotics and patients do not complete their whole antibiotic program.
We can solve the problem if we eliminate over use of antibiotics and keep specific or broad spectrum antibiotics out of use until the bacteria lose that resistance as germs are very selective of their gene load.
