dababler: Stop giving antibiotics to livestock so you can force them to live in their own shiat, I don't care about prices going up; lives will be lost if we lose our antibiotics; also, stop giving Z packs to idiots with viral sinus infections.
wild9: I have a friend that I joke around with all the time that he is going to be patient zero when some bacteria mutates that no antibiotic can tackle. Why? He goes to the doctor to get antibiotics for EVERYTHING. Foot hurts? I got some antibiotics. Headache? I think I have a sinus infection so I got some antibiotics. It really is annoying.
Walker: I'll be dead, what do I care? And there are new drug discoveries every day, something new will be invented by then. The cures to all diseases can be found in nature. Naked mole rats are immune to cancer, scientists know why, and are working on a way for humans to get that protection.
machoprogrammer: If antibiotics stop being used, eventually the non-drug resistant bacteria will come back. It'll take time, but it'll happen. The problem is the overuse of antibiotics in both humans and in agriculture.
