Bacteria may become more deadly in humans than cancer

Bacteria may become more deadly in humans than cancer

Antibiotic-resistant bacteria, in 30 years, are likely to become more lethal to humans than cancer around the world.

At least 23,000 people die in the United States because of an antibiotic-resistant infection every year, and some estimates suggest that deaths are much higher.

Malignant bacteria, which have become untreatable with antibiotics, spread rapidly and have become a serious threat to public health around the world.

Their increasing numbers are fed through excessive prescriptions, waste from pharmaceutical manufacturing plants, the use of antibiotics in animals and even international travel.

By 2050, some estimates suggest that drug resistance in general will kill 10 million people, more than 8.2 million people dying from cancer worldwide.

If scientists can control the resistance of these bacteria, mortality rates may never rise, but resistance to antibiotics has become a very complex problem.

Antibiotic resistance is very common among people who are often forced to live in overcrowded and unhealthy conditions.

Dr. Edward Ryan, a specialist in infectious diseases in Massachusetts, and lead author of the study, said that about one in three international travelers came home with resistant bacteria, but not necessarily infected, according to a continuing study of travelers and antimicrobial resistance.

Passengers will spread resistant bacteria after returning to their homes in the surrounding environment, even if they have the necessary precautions to dispose of them.
