I read an interesting article about bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics and how scientists are working to address this issue in order to help protect society.  This can be worrisome, but some of the best advice I have read about this topic in previous articles, is to not take antibiotics unless they are absolutely required (ie, not for a virus), finish all of the antibiotics prescribed, and to remember that good old fashioned hand washing is our best protection against germs.  For more, please read the article below.
