Cycle in Bacteria

COMMENT: Hello Martin

I’m writing about antibiotics, it’s becoming widely recognised that bacterial superbugs are developing which have genetically adapted to antibiotics in common use.   The meat industry is a major perpetrator of the bad use of antibiotics, and there’s a concern that the health industry could get to a stage where there’s nothing to offer people after surgery to kill bacteria, making all forms highly risky.  (There are more natural plant based solutions, but pharmaceutical companies can’t patent plants – only their own version). Antibiotics are used to kill bacteria, but people save them to use on a virus, further increasing the likely hood of adaptation.

REPLY: This shows that there is a cycle in nature. We have to understand that absolutely everything moves in a cycle and that means we can see disease resurge.
