Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Wrath of Allah: America Has Entered the Post-Antibiotic Era

U.S. Medicine Has Entered the Post-Antibiotic World - US News
Whether in a hospital, doctor’s office, on the farm or in food production, a disturbing
trend in recent years threatens the safety and lives of millions of Americans: Antibiotics are used far too much and they are becoming increasingly ineffective.
On Tuesday, more than 150 food companies, retailers and human and animal health providers gathered at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building for a “Forum on Antibiotic Stewardship,” where they crafted strategies in the fight against deadly, drug-resistant bacteria. The forum builds on a five-year national action plan released by the White House in March to aggressively change the way people and animals are treated for infections.
“We are near a tipping point with antibiotic resistance,” Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, wrote in an op-ed Tuesday in the Wall Street Journal that was timed to coincide with the event. “An increasing proportion of bacteria no longer respond to the drugs designed to kill them. We can either work to improve antibiotic use and prevent infections, or watch as the clock turns back to a world where simple infections kill people.”
We're headed towards a 'post-antibiotic era,' World Health Organization warns
In a report released Wednesday, the World Health Organization warned that society may soon be sliding into a “post-antibiotic era” in which common illnesses like pneumonia will once again become feared killers and surgery will come with heightened infection risks.
In its first investigation into antimicrobial resistance across the globe, WHO reported startling findings about the extent to which viruses and bacteria have evolved to combat antibiotics.
