Antibiotics: Is Antibiotic Resistance the Biggest Threat We Have?

How can you join the resistance...against antimicrobial resistance? Take a closer look at the growing problem of antimicrobial resistance. We investigate why this health-care crisis substantially increases illness and complicates care. By applying our knowledge of evolution by natural selection, we learn how reducing unnecessary use of antimicrobials not only reduces the threat of resistance, but also provides other benefits to individuals and populations.
