Antibiotic resistant "superbug" found in wildlife

An antibiotic resistant "superbug" has been found by University of Iowa researchers in area wildlife.

MRSA is a contagious bacterial infection often called a superbug because it is resistant to many commonly used antibiotics

The risk far outweighs any benefit as the risk will vary from child to child.

We just need to legalize cannabis and we should be good as it kills MRSA.

Superbugs develop from unregulated feeding of antibiotics to food animals, nobody cares:

"He says Australian agriculture is up with the best in the world when it comes to antibiotic use, but we need to make some hard decisions about drugs such as cephalosporins.

"I don't think we should be using these drugs at all. If you need to use them it means you are not operating in good conditions, it's too crowded for your animals."

Things move quickly in infectious diseases, as bugs evolve and prescribing practices change.

Collignon is frustrated that more than 10 years after our first serious concerns about superbugs led to the formation of a federal response - the Joint Expert Technical Advisory Committee on Antibiotic Resistance - many of the recommendations it made have still not been adopted.

"Essentially a lot of [the committee] was saying we should do more surveillance of antibiotic use in people and animals, and resistance in people and animals, and that hasn't happened," he says.
