Antibiotic Resistance: Serious Concerns Arise
Biblical predictions about plagues along with the medical establishment’s recent confirming alert of more superbugs will become a reality one day. People may want to scoff at these kinds of things; however, in the mid-1980’s I was told that bottled water maybe necessary because tap water could be unsafe. It was predicted that buying bottled water would be a common practice within a 10-15 year period of time. Perrier and a competitor was new back then. At the time, the notion of purchasing water was ‘crazy’ to me. I couldn’t imagine it. Why would I buy water when it is free, right? Well, here I am thirsting after bottled or filtered water whenever I can drink it because tap water standards are questionable. As for antibiotic resistance, believe it!
For years medicating with antibiotics has been a concern for many, but evidence of increasing resistance poses a bigger threat and a nightmare for those who depend on antibiotics. The World Health Organization (WHO) recently published the ‘bad news’ likely scenario.
‘ “Human resistance to antibiotics could bring ‘the end of modern medicine as we know it’,” according to The Daily Telegraph. The newspaper says that we are facing an antibiotic crisis that could make routine operations impossible and a scratched knee potentially fatal. Similarly, the Daily Mail’s headline stated that a sore throat could soon become fatal.
The alarming headlines follow a new report by the World Health Organization (WHO), which set out ways to fight the growing problem of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). AMR occurs when infectious organisms, such as bacteria and viruses, adapt to treatments and become resistant to them. The publication specifically addressed the long-known problem of antibiotic resistance, where increasing use of antibiotics can lead to the formation of “superbugs” that resist many of the antibiotic types we currently have.’
