Researchers at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada have looked into their soil to find a lot of resistance. The research scientists took some soil samples and found that a lot of microbes are not affected by antibiotics.
480 microbes were tested and a; showed resistance to two drugs, and most were resistant to 7 or 8 more of the 21 drugs tested. The scientists tried traditional medicines and recently designed drugs.
At first, you might think that this is not good news. I’d say that this is good news because by looking at these microbes we can gain a better understanding of why more and more microbes are resisting antibiotics. The more we know about this the better we can treat people.
