Antibiotics Abuse Warning
International health experts say that life expectancy will plummet by 10 years if the current abuse of antibiotics continues.
Gunnar Kahlmeter, chairman of the European Committee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing, says more infants will die of infection and routine sicknesses will become untreatable.
The newspaper "Dagens Nyheter" writes that five strains of bacteria resistant to antibiotics have already been identified, however no new antibiotics are being developed. (ln)
