Guess What Happens When The Antibiotics Stop Working

"Antibiotics aren’t doing what they’re supposed to do anymore. You know, kill infections. Since Alexander Fleming invented penicillin 75 years ago, nearly all bacteria have mutated into strains impervious to antibiotics. Those souped up bacteria now kill hundreds of thousands of people, at a minimum, each year. And according to a new issue of medical journal The Lancet focused on antibiotic-resistant bacteria, things could soon get a whole lot scarier."

Princeton, we have a problem.

I haven't taken an antibiotic in 20 years so my body would not develop a resistance for when I would REALLY need it. Little did I know all you whimps would be out there creating super germs. Thanks everyone.

We've been framing the use of antibiotics as an eradication campaign, which clearly won't work, rather than an arms control proposition or a containment policy. Natural selection and all that.
