A world without antibiotics? The risk is real, experts say:



Humans face the very real risk of a future without antibiotics, a world of plummeting life expectancy where people die from diseases easily treatable today, scientists say.

Experts tracking the rise of drug resistance say years of health gains could be rolled back by mutating microbes that make illnesses more difficult and expensive to cure and carry a higher risk of death.
Some say the threat to wellbeing is on the scale of global warming or terrorism—yet resistance is being allowed to spread through an entirely preventable means— improper use of antibiotics.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) says drug resistance "threatens a return to the pre-antibiotic era".

¿ A world without antibiotics ?




The same question hovered in the head of the director of the Health council of the United Kingdom, Sally Davies. And it develops in a magnificent essay - science fiction of apocalyptic dyes:


"It is a dark July day. Mrs Xu has not been, but it is the fifteenth day of her insolation. It started with a wheeze a week after her son's birthday. She had taken Josh to the theme park with a couple of his school friends. She keeps on going back to that day in her mind -it was full of energy and laughter ".......
"A few years ago the British government had hardened the law turning in criminals to people with infectious diseases than frequenting public spaces. It is the year 2043. "......

I hope that isn't the way it was written - that's pretty awkward.

Back to the topic: Yes, it's a very real threat. Antibiotics are *greatly* abused/overused.
 
This is actually a good way to quickly drop the worlds human population rapidly to more manageable levels. Considering that this problem is being created by stupid persons and lax medical guidelines we kind - of deserve this outcome due to our own shortsightedness.

It is also very ironic (IMHO) that the people who refuse to get flu shots to prevent getting the flu are the same ones who demand antibiotics when they then get the flu. :(

I Would like to see how it should have been written according to you. Will have you the courtesy to show us ¿?

Sure. Here's what you posted originally:

That's some VERY poor English grammar! There are many ways it could be written to make it *MUCH* clearer, the following is just one of them:

"A few years ago the British government had hardened the law turning people with infectious diseases into criminals and preventing them from frequenting public spaces. It is the year 2043. "......

Of course there are many ways to rewrite the paragraphs and all the text. You can be sure.
But you do not expect that I manipulate to my taste the author's syntax just because I believe that his grammar is very poor. ¿ Don´t you think ?

If that was you reason for rewriting it, you have VERY poor taste indeed!!

A world without antibiotics?

"Welcome back to Mother Nature's answer to overpopulation, human beings! She's been eagerly waiting for your return."

"Yes, enjoy that mad as a hatter feeling again: Get your medicinal mercury and colloidal silver in the left aisle while there's a discount. Fresh cattle manure in the refrigerated section for your cuts and lacerations. Severely wounded? Whack that rotten flesh with some wriggling maggot therapy fresh from the jars, in the back department. Olive leaf extract in the displays at the check-out for those of you who buy the antimicrobial hype."
