Antibiotic Resistance

It's almost unbelievable to think that antibiotics were discovered less than a century ago, and that before then people were severely disabled or killed by what we now regard as easily treatable diseases. Scientists have been warning for years that bacteria is slowly becoming resistant to our wonder cure and that there is no plan B when the last carefully controlled antibiotics no longer work.

Recently there has been a few stories of potential new forms which prevent us going back to the dark ages so I'll be monitoring developments of those here.
