Antibiotic-resistant bacteria are on the rise, with millions of infections reported every year and thousands of deaths. How does antibiotic resistance work? How did we get here?

Mrsa can be cured with colloidal silver this also cures other super bugs partly because super bugs or bacteria eat the special antibiotics that are suppose to be killing the bacteria but can not eat silver for lunch. Also colloidal silver is antiviral antibacterial anti fungus it's the most antimicrobial substance known to man. If you don't want the flu this helps but so does getting enough vitamin D zinc and whole food vitamin C. Eating an organic diet and being healthy. But as far as super bugs they don't have a chance against silver. The burning centres in America also use sulfasilverdiasine because it's the best substance for healing and for preventing infection from the burn. Just a little bit of facts for all of you. God bless and good health to you all.

Maybe we could release a bacteria with deadly DNA into your body so when they exchange DNA it kills the "superbugs"

Use phages

Joe I have a solution, bacteriophages they can kill just about all super bugs.

Get bacteria completely resistant to antibiotics, that way they are only focusing on one type of defence, so then attack them with phages

Guys look up phages it can kill superbug. It a virus that can target only certain bacteria. Phages therapy had been used in soviet union for 90 years and work wonder. The fda do not approve it, which is crazy.
Dafuq (3 months ago)
I think we should start using bacteriophanges with anti-biotics, because then if a superbug starts to get immune to the bacteriophanges, it will weaken its immunity to antibiotics, meaning that it can be killed again with antibiotics it was originally immune to, meaning it can’t be resistant to both bacteriophanges and antibiotics.

We can just inject bacteriophage in our bodys. Bateriophages kill superbugs

The biggest reason for over prescription of antibiotics is ignorant patients who demand them. If they don't get a z-pak for their cold, they complain and say the doctors are bad or that they didn't get what they paid for. If the doctors get bad reviews, they lose their jobs. It's really a bad system we've got going in the US.

Vic Petrov (6 months ago)
Not a single word about the meat industry's horrible effect on antibiotic resistance! This is much much much more impactful than overprescription. Look it up, people, stop eating meat, stop paying for people using our antibiotics to fund their horrid money-making machines. Your demand for rotting carcasses fuels this! JUST STOP EATING MEAT!

The idea that not finishing antibiotics can lead to antibiotic resistance just isn't proven. There have been studies that suggest that this isn't the case: https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/jul/26/rule-patients-must-finish-antibiotics-course-wrong-study-says

80% used by food industry... Better focus on the other 20% ffs...
Justin Moloney (8 months ago)
No they really aren't. The 80/20 rule is that 80% of effort would be expended on getting the hardest 20% of work correct. When it comes to 80% of drugs that bacteria comes into contact with, it's 80% of the problem! It's the contact that causes the ones that don't die to reproduce, and gain immunity. Basic evolution, watch any of this guys videos and he basically says this.

I don't know if it was known back in 2015 when this video was released but the main cause for the rise of the super bugs as you call it is actually the overuse of antibiotics in animal farms. Either you didnt know about it you you decided that this little detail was not worthy to be mentioned in this video...

PULKIT SINGH RANA (10 months ago)
why can't we do the same with mold i.e, exposing mold to these Superbugs in large quantity , and see which one survive and then use there immune response to fight against these Superbugs ..!!
PULKIT SINGH RANA (9 months ago)
Then we repeat this process like a million time and choose the best mold every time .... but i guess scientists are not stupid they must have already done it , the problem is we have new drugs but pharmaceutical companies are not responding to that change ; because some king of loss ,i guess.... but if we can't treat any bug with even from latest research then i must say we are screwed ..

Stop taking antibiotics. You can kill bacterial infections by oxidizing them. High levels of Vitamin C can help.

People used to die from papercuts because they were malnurished as well as not immune yet. Bacteria will never have the same power it once haf

I am a Scientist currently working on creating a brand new Antibiotic, for a new form of bacteria that likes to hide in your immune system Cells. The research we are doing has currently gotten us new species of Bacteria that is forming a new kind of Antibiotic. I hope when we finish our research, this new Antibiotic won't be abused.

If the policeman has disseminated sporotrichosis, PCN would not be expected to be effective. Fortunately it's better treated today. But best to wear good gloves when working around roses, or anything with thorns. The bugs WILL win. It's just a matter of time. The drug industry is much less interested in drugs that cure the patient, like antibiotics, than in drugs that are continuing revenue sources because they only ameliorate a chronic disease. It's all about money. Phage therapy us used very effectively in other parts of the world. But, as far as I know, the inability for the drug makers to patent phages prevents this very useful modality from being offered to Americans. People who might be cured of their infections are thus allowed to die.
