Through the years, overexposure to antibiotics has led to the development of bacteria which are resistant to certain types of drugs. Last year, the World Health Organization sounded the alarm bell that antibiotic resistance should be taken seriously before it’s too late.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 23,000 deaths and 2 million illnesses occur each year in the United States alone due to these drug-resistant “superbugs.” They have spread to every corner of the world and might lead to many more deaths in the future when antibiotics stop working completely.

If this happens, otherwise minor bacterial infections like post-surgical infections or urinary tract infections will no longer be treatable. Instead, they’ll become a life-threatening problem.
