WHO names 12 bacteria that pose the greatest threat to human health | Society | The Guardian
Health experts have previously warned that resistance to the drugs that are used to fight infections could cause a bigger threat to mankind than cancer.

If antibiotics lose their effectiveness, key medical procedures – including organ transplantation, caesarean sections, joint replacements and chemotherapy – could become too dangerous to perform.

About 700,000 people around the world die annually due to drug-resistant infections and, if no action is taken, it has been estimated that such infections will kill 10m people a year by 2050. &! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-39104411

Superbugs are on track to kill 10 million people by 2050 if things don’t change—fast
[under reported ] Today, 23,000 Americans die each year from infections caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Across the world, the estimated annual mortality rate is 700,000. If these trends continue, by 2050, 10 million people globally will die each year, as the potent diseases of previous centuries return to their old force, according to the Review on Antimicrobial Resistance. In 2012, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported an estimated 450,000 new cases of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis. The emergence of multiple drug-resistant pneumonia and E. coli bacteria strains are predicted to contribute significantly to increased mortalities due to their ability to spread rapidly through populations.

New UK food poisoning figures published | Food Standards Agency
There are more than 500,000 cases of food poisoning a year from known pathogens. This figure would more than double if it included food poisoning cases from unknown pathogens.
Campylobacter was the most common foodborne pathogen, with about 280,000 cases every year. [...] Poultry meat was the food linked to the most cases of food poisoning, with an estimated 244,000 cases every year [... BUT ...] 10 million cases of infectious intestinal disease (IID) a year are not yet attributed to a specific pathogen.

'Almost too late': fears of global superbug crisis in wake of antibiotic misuse | Society | The Guardian
Despite European Union regulations aiming to cut back on the unnecessary use of antibiotics, Dr Brown believes it will take more than just legislation to tackle the superbug crisis. Market forces will need to be compelled to cut usage, perhaps when prompted by a shift in public opinion, he said. “Those with a vested interest find ways around legislation. So, in addition to public policy we will need also the power of market forces,” he added. “When the public start demanding meat that has not seen antibiotics - because they understand that the meat may contain antibiotic resistant bacteria - only then will real progress be made. We need education about the threat.”

Bacteria that resist 'last antibiotic' found in UK - BBC News
[ over 80% of antibiotic use - livestock farming. also use of colistin. self-regulated. ] Bacteria that resist the most common antibiotic of last resort - colistin - have been discovered in the UK. Officials say the threat to human health is low, but is under ongoing review. Scientists warned the world was on the cusp of a post-antibiotic era when such resistance was discovered in China last month. Now checks have discovered the same resistance on three farms and in samples of human infections. [...] Colistin-resistance was discovered in fifteen of them, including samples of Salmonella and E. Coli. [...] The DNA that gives bacteria resistance to colistin - the mcr-1 gene - can spread rapidly between species. The concern is that colistin-resistance will now find its way into other superbugs to create infections that doctors cannot treat. //&! youtu.be/M2xZBngTIas //&! bit.ly/1O5oHWa //&! bit.ly/1MW3FYW //&! bbc.in/1PkB6G9 //&! 50-50 chance to salvage situation - bit.ly/1Zmx8Qg

Superbugs Found Along Britain’s Surf - The Latest News
A proportion of the bacteria found along the U.K. coastline are pathogenic. Of these pathogen some, worryingly, are antibiotic resistant according to a new survey. Researchers have found that some of the Escherichia coli bacteria found floating at the surface of Britain’s coastal waters are resistant to antibiotics. Samples were taken from 97 different costal spots around Wales and England. Of these 97 sites, 15 contained E. coli that was resistant to third-generation cephalosporins, These are a class of antibiotics that are used as antibiotics of last resort, when the other antibiotics cannot be used. Although the actual proportions of antibiotic resistant bacteria was low (less than one tenth of one percent), this is still a dangerous number and poses a risk to people who swim with cuts or to aquatic sports enthusiasts. [...] The growing menace of antibiotic resistance is, arguably, the single biggest threat faced by the world’s population.

Avoiding Chicken To Avoid Bladder Infections - YouTube

I originally explored this topic in Chicken Out of UTIs (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/chicken-out-of-utis/), but decided I needed to take a much deeper dive, especially in light of the cross-contamination issue, which I also previously touched on in Food Poisoning Bacteria Cross-Contamination (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/food-poisoning-bacteria-cross-contamination/) and Fecal Contamination of Sushi (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/fecal-contamination-of-sushi/).

BBC iPlayer - Horizon: 2012-2013: Defeating the Superbugs
Documentary about scientists who are tracking the emergence of 'superbugs' - dangerous bacteria resistant to antibiotics - around the world.

- MRSA and other antibiotic resistant infections and diseases (some recent new cases of Tuberculosis in South East Asia) pose a major public health risk.

History doesn't repeat, but it rhymes. Another similar case of Black Death which will decimate significant percentage of world population will occur again one way or the other.

Finding new antibiotics is of critical concern. But Drug companies incentives to research isn't matched by a 'possible threat'.

Prevalent use for negligible illnesses (using a cannonball to shoot a bird) and abuse of antibiotics in meat and poultry industry makes current antibiotics useless against new superbug strains.

- Rise in UK drug-resistant tuberculosis cases
