Here’s an unsettling paragraph from an article in the Guardian:
The era of antibiotics is coming to a close. In just a couple of generations, what once appeared to be miracle medicines have been beaten into ineffectiveness by the bacteria they were designed to knock out. Once, scientists hailed the end of infectious diseases. Now, the post-antibiotic apocalypse is within sight.
The article makes reference to another in the Lancet Infectious Diseases journal. Bacteria are great survivors, the author says, while quoting a researcher who points out this: “The emergence of antibiotic resistance is the most eloquent example of Darwin’s principle of evolution that there ever was.”
Now it’s going to become a political battle.
