Here’s a great 3-minute video by Ohio State’s Debbie Goff explaining the resistance problem. Keep in mind there’s 3 main actors here: the bug, the drug, and you. And it’s the bug, e.g. MRSA, that becomes resistant to the antibiotic drug, e.g. methicillin, leaving you with a harder to treat, or untreatable, bug-driven infection.
We explored this issue in greater detail with Debbie Goff yesterday. You can access that here.
