What Can We Do About Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria? Essay
Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria is bacteria that has mutated and have become immune to antibiotics to treat them. In science terms Antibiotic resistance is the ability of a microorganism to withstand the effects of an antibiotic; this was said in an article called Antibiotic Resistance on Daily Science website. In all the scientific terms it is hard to understand exactly what all of ...view middle of the document...
When antibiotics become ineffective to killing bacteria it becomes a problem, but how do we fix it and what are we going to do about it?
What I have gotten out of the articles I have read. Scientists are studying all the possibilities and were of how to prevent genes from mutation so that we will not become immune to the antibiotics that we have to help heal the infections we typically encounter. There are a lot of studies going on, these are to develop a way to make sure that we do not meet a “superbug," meaning a disease or infection that we cannot fight off because out genes have mutated and we have no antibiotics or treatment. If we do not find a way to prevent our genes from mutating it could result in the extinction of the human race. So in order for that not to happen we either needs to find a way to prevent our genes from mutating or come up with antibiotics or treatments to fight these changes and mutations. This is something that is being worked on by scientists all over the world. The dinosaurs are an example of what could happen to the human race if we do not prepare ourselves to adapt and find a way to change our genes in ways to adapt to whatever comes our way.
