Germs That Thrive On Antibiotics

This is fascinating yet disturbing: Harvard researchers discovered hundreds of germs in soil that are able to feed and thrive on antibiotics as their sole source of nutrition.

Makes you wonder whether more serious or potentially deadly germs might evolve to do the same leaving people defenseless. I try to avoid taking antibiotics whenever I can, it’s definitely not necessary for mild colds or minor infections.

Generally I guess doctors are also handing out antibiotics way too carelessly.
