I find people are very unaware of this situation. It first came to my attention when my Grandmother had two hip replacements. She wound up with a Staph infection that did not respond to antibiotics. For the last nine years of her life, she took every antibiotic possible. Pills, injections and IVs. They even put in tubes to flush out the bacteria at times. She would get a little better, and then her hips would swell up and pus would actually ooze out of her scars. The most dangerous bacteria are in our best hospitals. That seems counter intuitive, but evolution doesn't care. It's just living things adapting to their environment. Even Bethesda damn near shut down due to this issue. I put this in the political section, as antibiotic research funding by our government is basically zero compared to the problem. Private companies are NOT trying to make antibiotics, as there is no profit margin. They want to make drugs that people take every day for the rest of their lives. Antibiotics screw up their bottom line. Simple lesson on antibiotic resistance: http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/microbiome/resistance/ Here is a peer-reviewed article on the problem. It is chilling to read, especially this. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4378521/ Here is an article about antibiotic use on farms and antibiotic resistance. There is a Frontline episode that is called "the trouble with antibiotics" that you can google and watch. Part of the episode is in Flagstaff (!!!) where a spike in antibiotic resistant bladder infections occurred. Around 30% of the meat they bought in Flagstaff grocery stores had antibiotic resistance bacteria on them. They then cultured bacteria from the infections, and they genetically matched the bacteria on the meat. https://www.scientificamerican.com/...-bacteria-travel-from-the-farm-to-your-table/ My advice? Undercook nothing. Stop asking your doctors for pills when you have a cold. Or the flu. Antibiotics do NOTHING to viruses, only bacteria.
