We may have a new weapon to fight dangerous superbugs (and we’re gonna need it)

There is a version of the near future where antibiotic resistant bacteria become more deadly than cancer.  A study released back in 2016 predicted that, if left unchecked, these types of bacteria could claim more than 10 million lives a year by 2050. Cancer currently kills 8 million people annually. In the U.S. alone, antibiotic...CONTINUE READING

The CDC is terrified of these germs, so it’s trying to contain them

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) can’t stop microbes from mutating and becoming resistant to even our strongest drugs. But it is working harder than ever to come up with an effective containment strategy to stop the spread of these lethal bacteria.  In 2017, the CDC’s Antibiotic Resistance Laboratory collected 5,776 “highly resistant”...CONTINUE READING

Antibiotic use skyrockets globally, stoking fears of tough ‘superbugs’

But the doctors found their antibiotics wouldn’t kill the microbe, P. aeruginosa, which like many bacteria in recent years, had become resistant to traditional...CONTINUE READING
