    Default These pigs could kill us all

    New strains of bacteria which are resistant to all existing antibiotics have been found in pigs & humans in China.

    New antibiotics haven't been developed since the 1980s is the antibiotic apocalypse on the way?

    I 'm probably already dying from all the pig products I' ve eaten..... clogging arteries.
    (I was going to say sausages I've eaten but that could be misconstrued).
    There likely won't be an overnight antibiotic apocalypse but many of our current antibiotics will in time lose their efficacy and possibly be rendered near to useless. Perhaps news such as this may act as a spur to develop new drugs... neither an easy nor a cheap task.
    Alexander Fleming stumbled on penicillin, by accident so the story goes, in the late 20s/early 30s.
    It was left to others a decade later to discover ways of producing commercial quantities of this drug. Before war's end in 1945 limited quantities of penicillin were available to the American military. At first it was a cure all for bacterial infections but over time resistance set in. Nowadays straight penicillan is of little use for many infections. So antibiotic resistance has been ongoing over time.
    By chance a certain number of pathogenic bacteria may be genetically immune to a particular drug. They can survive in the face of such a drug and replace the susceptible bacterial population over time.
    However certain bacteria can spread genetic material coding for antiobiotic resistance to other even unrelated bacterial species. This provides a faster and more invidious route to bacterial resistance.
    Another problem may be that many of us are leading such lives of hygiene nowadays that we are not priming our immune systems by exposure to different types of bacteria. This can result in our bodies being less able to combat subsequent infections we may encounter.
    Antibiotic resistance has been accelerated by injudicious medical overuse of drugs in the past, and by overuse in food producing animals.
    In feed antibiotic medication of pigs and poultry(for disease reduction/growth promotion reasons) , which is likely still practiced in many parts of the world, is a practice which should be questioned.
