Dr. Margaret Chan, Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), dropped an allegorical bomb while speaking in Copenhagen Wednesday, March 14, 2012. The mainstay of modern allopathic medicine and healthcare, antibiotics, was the target. Quite candidly Chan reported,
“We are losing our first-line antimicrobials. Replacement treatments are more costly, more toxic, need much longer durations of treatment, and may require treatment in intensive care unit.” 
Dr. Chan went on to elaborate about numerous bacteria that have become antibiotic resistant, e.g., methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), plus other infectious diseases, i.e., multi-drug resistant tuberculosis, are becoming increasingly difficult and expensive to treat because antibiotics aren’t effective. Chan elaborated further, “Things as common as strep throat or a child’s scratched knee could once again kill.” Are her words to be interpreted as warnings, threats, realities, or a prediction of something even more sinister in the way of pharmaceuticals that will have to be invented?
If one considers a reality aspect of Chan’s remarks, then one realizes that the antibiotic debacle is a disastrous making of choice by two industries (medicine and pharmacology), which apparently didn’t know what they were doing—similar to a drunken sailor’s philosophy, more booze is going to make him feel better—in their almost insane insistence of prescribing antibiotics in a willy-nilly-like ‘feeding frenzy’. That apparent obsessive-compulsive-behavior-like script writing by MDs following Big Pharma’s dictates on the efficacy of their newest wares for just about any health issue created the medical emergency we now face regarding those microscopicbuggers, bacteria.
