    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.

    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.

    Well there is also a big problem in underdeveloped countries where people take antibiotics as a "preventative measure". Sheesh India now has an incurable form of TB as a result of bad medicine, India is already full of TB but when bacteria resistant strains were found the doctors would only treat it for a little while which has created "super" bugs.
