Jim Hightower | What If Antibiotics No Longer Work?

No shit.  Reallly.  Mainstream medicine in my part of the woods is just getting it and the fact is that they don't have any easy or cheap alternatives.  
Antibiotic medicines, long hailed as miracle drugs for their ability to battle infections and save lives — are turning out to be too much of a good thing.
Two factors are at work here. First, infectious bacteria themselves (one of the earliest forms of life on Earth) are miracles in their own right, with a stunning ability to outsmart the antibiotic drugs through rapid evolution. Second is the rather dull inclination of us supposedly superior humans to massively overuse and misuse antibiotic medicines. Every time we take an antibiotic to kill bad bacteria infecting our bodies, a few of the infectious germs are naturally resistant to the drug, so they survive, multiply and become a colony of Superbugs that antibiotics can't touch.
Multiply this colony by the jillions of doses prescribed for everything from deadly staph infections to the common cold, and we get the "antibiotic paradox": The more we use them, the less effective they become, for they're creating a spreading epidemic of immune Superbugs.
