Solution For Antibiotic Resistance
So knowing the history about the discovery of antibiotics and what was the main purpose of this drug will put your mind at ease. Like I stated earlier, our society take antibiotics for any reason.
One of the best solution is to take a broader view of the microbes. Microbes which are single-cell organisms so tiny that millions can fit into the eye of a needle. They are the oldest form of life on earth. Microbe is a term for tiny creatures that individually are too small to be seen with the naked eye. Microbes include bacteria, fungi, archaea, and protists. We all know about bacteria and fungi. Archaea are bacteria-like creatures that have some traits not found in any true bacteria. Protists include …show more content…
“In the 20th century more than 20 classes of antibiotics were marketed”. During the 1940’s and 1950’s there were plenty of antibiotics being explored. Why? During World War II the making of penicillin motivated others to look or make other antibiotics. “Superbugs are already here, defeating our best weapons” (Richardson). It is a term that most people hear about but have no idea or understanding of the term. It is mainly a bacteria that has now become resistant to any antibiotics. The most common area that you will find bacteria is in a hospital. One of the most dangerous bug out there is Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Many agencies, hospitals have realize the best solution to kill the bacteria is to conduct research. We failed to fully understand how important for many researchers to conduct medical practice in the basic common medication for all diseases and infections. Dr. Chan stated (World Health Organization), “In the absence of urgent corrective and protective actions, the world is heading towards a post antibiotic era”. The reason she is concern is that we are not making drugs that are capable of destroying the bacteria fast enough to treat the human population. For many years there has been a virus known …show more content…
How important is collecting data, here is an example; over 26 countries have been gathering information how antibiotic drugs are being used and how the bacteria is resisting the affects. In Greece thirty eight percent of the population have the highest usage of antibiotics. In Netherland shows the lowest usage of antibiotics. The collecting of data shows the acknowledge of antibiotics abuse and the resistance.
Stop antibiotic use on food products: In the United States what I feel is one of the major problems we faced in antibiotics are in the food products, eighty percent are used on promoting growth to farm animals mainly in chickens, a test was conducted and found traces of resistant bacteria and resistance genes in today’s markets. If the government enforces a law for farmers to lower the dosage of antibiotics or just simple stop using it.
Practice antibiotic: Basically if we tell the human population on the causes of resistant bacteria there might be better control of the use of antibiotics. Here are some ways, “biomarker for infection to avoid unnecessary antibiotic use, short courses of antibiotics, switch antibiotics from intravenous to oral formulations, avoid antibiotic redundancy”
