This video will explain how bacteria forms into superbugs; extreme sickness causing microbes that we use antibiotics for to fight illness. The film will show how these superbugs are becoming resistant to the very antibiotics that used to be the cure and some of the ways doctors are battling to find new cures for them. Take a look at how Professor Hazel Barton goes to remote caverns searching for new alternatives to use to cure those infected by superbugs. Watch how a patient is infected with a superbug after an injury in Iraq and is given antibiotics, only to have them shut his system down. Learn about some of the methods doctors are looking into today to combat these deadly killers.
Learn about some of the reasoning behind the resistance to antibiotics and how misuse or overusing antibiotics can actually be causing superbugs to evolve. This film will take you in depth into the scientific theories about the failing of antibiotics and the supremacy of superbugs today.
