Science Documentary: Antibiotic Resistance

  • Published 6 years ago

Scientists are now calling it “the antibiotic resistance crisis”. What does it mean? Simply put, antibiotics are not as effective as they were say, 10 or 15 years ago.

Bacteria develop resistance, and it seems that bacteria are developing faster than we, as society and medicine, are able to develop antibiotics. The result is doctors are seeing infections they can no longer treat with the use of antibiotics.

The question many ask is whether we are seeing the end of modern science? Alternative medicine has been growing in popularity lately. You’ll see tons of natural and home remedies being recommended for various diseases, illnesses and conditions.

At what point do we stop and say “we are done with antibiotics”. Understanding the crisis is not easy, and one documentary won’t do it. But it will be enough to get you thinking. The goal is not to ditch antibiotics completely, but find a balance between using them, and using natural and alternative solutions as well.

Antibiotics have saved millions of lives, but can they save a million more? Or we need another cure?
