Tag “resistnance”

At least 23,000 Americans die each year from antibiotic-resistant infections, more than the 15,000 who die from AIDS, as stated in the reports of the US Centers for Disease Control. Antibiotics have been commonly available since the 1940s and, they have saved countless amounts of lives from infections. However, germs that are genetically predisposed to survive these drugs have grown more numerous, some even transmitting resistance to other germs.
