The survey of more than 1,000 adults found that 65 percent believe antibiotic resistance is a public health problem, and 81 percent are worried that antibiotic resistance will make more infections difficult to treat or even deadly. Europe used to be the voice of reason in antibiotic discovery and development, but this is no longer the case. The European Medical Agency, Europe’s equivalent of the FDA, is requiring so many clinical trials for antibiotics that it is no longer feasible for companies to market the drugs in the E.U. ACSH advisor Dr.

David Shlaes (pictured) explains. Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest public health challenges of our time. Each year in the U.S., at least 2.8 million people get an antibiotic-resistant infection, and more than 35,000 people die. Fighting this threat is a public health priority that requires a collaborative global approach across sectors.

Antibiotic resistance is becoming a common problem in many parts of the United States. Do I need to worry about antibiotic resistance? If your infection is resistant to the antibiotic you are. 1 day ago · Antibiotic resistance occurs when bacteria change in some way that reduces or eliminates the effectiveness of drugs, chemicals, or other agents designed to cure or prevent infections September 12.

Introduction. Antibiotic resistance has been described as one of the greatest global threats of the 21st century. 1 Although it was recognized soon after antibiotics were first introduced, the impact was mitigated initially by the development and use of newer agents.

However, very few new classes of antibiotics have been developed since the late 1960s, and development has stalled in recent.

  • Hello all! A friendly reminder that antibiotics are medicines that treat bacterial infections, not viral infections, because they can’t kill viruses. Find out more about viruses (i.e. what is a virus? How do vaccines work? What is a pandemic?) with our playlist: http://bit.ly/HumansVsViruses

  • If we want to fix the problem, we also need to fix the agriculture industry. Stop using antibiotics and improve conditions. Offer more non-animal based options as well.

  • Dr. Alexander Fleming warned us on the possible abuse of his discovery. https://www.textbooq.in/2020/07/antibiotic-resistance-in-bacteria-mechanism-cause-prevention.html

  • I noticed the key role of the meat industry in the development of the antibioresistance! One of the most polluting and cruel also!

  • Antibiotic resistance can be minimized by completely halting usage of antibiotics. Natural selection will remove the resistance believing there is no usage. We can use phages instead and prophylaxis for one year cycle.

  • At the end, money is the reason why many good endeavors get dried up. I wish the governments gave more of their attention to medical research rather than to developing powerful missiles.

  • Pharma: “We can’t make enough money by developing antibiotics”
    Bacteria: “God bless capitalism, these humans won’t survive if surviving is unprofitable”

    Darwin, Marx and Koch: “Well, we tried”

  • This is just superb, been searching for “can male impotence be cured” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about Narnlivia Stiff Manhood (do a google search )? Ive heard some incredible things about it and my mate got excellent results with it.

  • There is a lot of mention about profit in this video, and how bad it is when a drug is non-profitable…Thinking about that, well it seems heartless and money minded, Lacks compassion. But sadly, that’s what the world runs on…Great info apart from that!

  • Yeah but most of the -antibiotics abuse is in our farm meat industry about 80% or higher so where is that brought up in this report cbs?

  • I guess it’s too late until some billionaire decides to make a new one. Correct me if I’m wrong, but China has been using the strongest antibiotic available now for pigs farms and poultry for years now. The last defense has been breached, and it’s just a matter of time, to be infected by a bacteria after Covid-19 virus halts.

  • It would’ve been good to include that there are still plenty of countries that have a terrible AB policy (i.e. India).. prescribring them for anything.

  • Prepare yourself for Superbug Pandemics in Post-COVID 19 pandemics. My effort to avert this was stifled by the NHS in the UK. I have given up and so published book and created an App called Dr Maya, to help you reduce spreading infection. Read my articles and spread my message. http://www.the-american-interest.com/2017/01/12/superbug-pandemics-and-how-to-prevent-them/. The Elephant is in the Doctors room, but doctors ignore this https://www.opastonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/elephant-in-the-doctors-room-aidt-18-05.pdf. http://www.maya.doctor

  • Does consuming Antibiotics not necessary weakens our Immune system?

    Considering that by taking some It’ll only makes the varient bacterias develop resistance.

    I want to know because my parents gives me antibiotic drugs even with viral infection.
    Now i stopped

  • The fact that ted put the effort in to make the “original antibiotic tank” an FT-17 warms my heart. Ah yes the topic, us all dying from disease yeah right back to that thing.

  • Sure we can but if a new antibiotic is developed will people practice discipline and not develop a new antibiotic resistant microbe ��, will people use their money to buy a microbiology book and study their own illnesses aka marking time

  • Antibiotic companies should be like a social service. All the countries donate for them and they keep on developing new anitibiotics…..

  • We need to stop using money as the incentive to do good. This do why ppl die. This is a fundamental problem with society. We should do good Because it’s good not for profit.

  • I have a question. Edward Jenner discovered the first vaccine by using a less deadlier version of the virus so that the cells could learn how to fight that virus, right? So, why don’t we make a less deadlier version of the corona virus and use it as a vaccine? ��
    THINK ABOUT IT, PEOPLE!!!??? ��

  • It is obnoxious that falsehoods are mixed with facts in this video. Development of antibiotics and improvements to current antibiotics have not stopped. Example: https://www.fda.gov/news-events/press-announcements/fda-approves-new-antibiotic-treat-community-acquired-bacterial-pneumonia. When meat is cooked to a safe temperature, it does not pass on some type of antibiotic resistant strain to the consumer. Look at amoxicillin… doesn’t work so well but Augmentin is highly effective. Vancomycin is one of the drugs of last resort and it has recently been improved to treat vancomycin resistent bacteria source: https://www.futurity.org/mrsa-antibiotic-modification-1906832/. Hospital acquired MRSA is a very dangerous thing but vancomycin can still cure it. This is not a crisis, but rather, clickbait. Another source: https://www.pewtrusts.org/en/research-and-analysis/data-visualizations/2014/antibiotics-currently-in-clinical-development. I see that Ted Ed’s advisory board includes zero doctors… go figure.

  • Cant we just make a research on how to make our immune system fight stronger viruses rather that take antibiotics to fight the virus?

  • why don’t shine some uv light to an area that not exposed to living thing yet before entering? it surely will broke some of the bacterial dna

  • Just watched the new one today, nice that you show what’s a matter but u don’t do a dam thing to fix it, after u get ur views, disstafied in all show and not even a try to fix it after ur clip is over, just keep milking it, because as far as I see that’s all ur good for, look at the time this video came out and they just milked it again tonight on 60 minutes and r gonna milk it again and not do a dam thing there a mess and a sham, they don’t care about fixing anything except there rating, too dam sad

  • This was scary to watch, this was an extremely scary experiment. Obviously this would be worse than a nuclear blast I you did this with ebola. Sickening job you have.

  • How much of a risk does the new X-Men strength E. coli pose to the general public? I imagine some disgruntled employee throwing the experiment out a window into a street instead of chucking it into an incinerator. Super E. coli would be a messy way to die.

  • Cipro ruined my life..threw off my entire metobolic system. I cant heal..pre diabetes..even mental and emotional issues..just one dose

  • I had mrsa and antibiotics only made me worse, doctors were no help they just gave me more. I took matters in my own hands and I discovered it’s actually very simple. Pathogens thrive in acidity humans thrive in oxygen and they are on opposite ends of the spectrum. Therefore if you stabilize the oxygen in your body pathogens just reproduce less and less till eventually they are gone. It’s a longer process but there is no resistance to oxidation. Only thing that cured my mrsa was stabilized oxygen through chlorine dioxide. It’s the E=mc2 of your health.

  • you stop eating pills and rely on your internal health facility instead of thinking about medical science in terms of saving grace

  • I must say that colloidal silver is clinically and scientifically proven to treat and cure mrsa completely, I wish this guy knew about this option. Mainstream doctors would never tell anyone about this option because it’s not patented and they can’t make money on it. The best brand is sovereign silver because it is the smallest particle size,.8 nanometers and the purest silver 99.999 percent and pharmaceutical grade water when talking about purity here. It’s antiviral antibacterial anti fungus it’s the most antimicrobial substance known to man. This translates into no resistance to bacteria and no case of Argyria or blue skin which is another scare tactic by the FDA. God bless hope this helps.
