Hunting the Nightmare Bacteria

Methicillin-resistant Staph. aureus, also known as MRSA
Following up on the previous post on antibiotic resistance as well as the one on phage therapy as a potential strategy to overcome antibiotic resistance, I want to point out that there's a great episode of PBS Frontline about the rise of drug-resistant bacteria that you can watch over at their website.

I highly recommend watching it if you're interested in antibiotic resistance and the "rise of the superbugs."  Even if you aren't that particularly interested in the topic, it is still worth watching just to be better informed about what is going be a major public health issue that we as a society have to face in the coming years.

  3. That's why I prefer to get health without using antibiotics, if it's possible. Of course, I will take them is needed, but I hate how doctors recommend them when you're having ordinary cold. I'll be okay in a week at home, checking the rating of, no matter with antibiotics or without. But I won;'t grow my antibiotic resistance.
