Light at the end of the tunnel

“… antibiotics could be deactivated after use so that they no longer accumulate in the environment where they encourage the emergence of superbugs…”

Scrolling through the news I am accustomed to being bombarded with stories of the Democrat-Republican tug-o-war and the latest antics of some Kardashian. Today however, it was something different that caught my eye.

As an alternative therapist, or for that matter a health conscious individual, I try to keep my use of antibiotics to a minimum and encourage everyone around me to do the same. That being said, we’ve all heard about the time-bomb that is antibiotics. Ergo, one can understand my excitement when I came across the above article in BBC news.

 

What do you think? Are you optimistic about the future of our medicinal advancements?
