Bacterial Resistance

The World Economic Forum released an interesting blog post today discussing the possibility of losing antibiotics to bacterial resistance. As discussed in previous articles (www.outsider-trading.com/bacterial-resistance/), this has been a fear that is becoming more and more prominent across multiple global levels. What are your thoughts on this growing issue?

    Oct 7 2012: I think we can break this down into a few important issues. The first being abuse of antibiotics. It would be difficult to force other countries into regulation. However, we may want to consider presenting the idea.

    The second issue is research. How many of our great minds go towards the creation of iPods and computers? I think this needs to be a social shift towards progress.

    We cannot find answers if we aren't thinking about the problems.
