Urinary Tract Infections Becoming Resistant to Antibiotics

Urinary tract infections are becoming difficult to treat as a result of growing resistance to antibiotic drugs.

The problem is caused by the overuse of antibiotics in the farming industry, which then enter the food chain.

BBC News reports:

“... researchers examined Escherichia coli bacteria, which are responsible for the vast bulk of human urinary tract infections. (UTIs). Looking at samples from humans and animals they found an identical gene for antibiotic resistance was present.”
