Misuse and overuse of antibiotics have contributed to antibiotic resistance, a phenomenon that reduces or eliminates the effectiveness of antibiotics skip to main page content when you are prescribed an antibiotic to treat a bacterial infection. Our actions speed up antibiotic resistance in bacteria, especially in the areas of farming and healthcare resistance tends to develop where bacteria are frequently exposed to antibiotics and when there are lots of animal or human hosts. This superbug's strains are dangerous because they can transfer antibiotic resistance to normal bacteria present in our bodies. 'nightmare bacteria' superbug found for first time in us fear an e coli bacteria with the mcr-1 gene could pass it to another superbug with other mutations-- creating a truly super-superbug that resists all known antibiotics bacteria develop resistance to drugs quickly.
One of the biggest current threats to global health is the rise of multi-drug resistant bacteria, caused by the spreading of antibiotic resistance amongst them. But it is a truism that antibiotic use leads to resistance, and the more antibiotics you use, the more resistance you get in the presence of a nonlethal dose of antibiotics, bacteria can mutate to become resistant, breeding a new strain. Bacteria in many environments can readily exchange genes coding for antibiotic resistance with neighboring bacteria antibiotic resistance genes are often located on mobile genetic elements, especially plasmids.
