CDC Warns Of Spread Of Deadly Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria
ATLANTA (CBSMiami) – An antibiotic-resistant family of bacteria continues to spread throughout the U.S. health care system and is now prompting warnings from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The bacteria, Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE), kill up to half of the patients who get the bloodstream infections from the disease. The disease has evolved a resistance to carbapenems, also called last-resort antibiotics.
Thanks JB. I was just about to correct that.

This is what we are reaping as a result of running to the doctor and demanding antibiotics for ever cold and minor viral infection we get. people need to understand that there is no quick cure for them and doctors need to stop prescribing them just to make their patients happy.
