World's scariest video

Post by Tunnelcat » Fri Jun 30, 2017 12:42 pm

Or at least it should be. This is the bacterium e-coli, growing, mutating and then advancing into a succession of more and more concentrated sections of antibiotics on a very large petri dish. We're doomed.

Nice to see that they're purposefully pushing bugs to mutate and survive as superbugs even faster than they are now. :P

It's no different than doctors giving out antibiotics like candy whenever some mother brings in their sick kid and wants him or her "cured" no matter what or when a farmer constantly doses his cattle with antibiotics as a "preventative" measure. At least the e-coli in that petri dish can easily be destroyed with bleach. That's not so easy of a task when that same "evolution" happens within the human body. That petri dish experiment shows us that we're now in trouble when it comes to trying to control harmful bacteria. :wink:

I don’t think that video is scary, it’s just a demonstration of what we have known for a long time.

You mean the thought of an antibiotic resistant super strain of e-coli running rampant through your body and the docs have no drugs that will stop it doesn't scare you? How about antibiotic resistant MRSA? :o

You DO have to imagine that bug residing inside your body doing what it's doing on the petri dish.... :wink:
