Superbugs

How can America keep pumping antibiotics into our food animals? It’s just a matter of time until bacteria trades enough genetic material with each other to cause an epidemic or possibly  a pandemic. Bacteria will kill us the way it did before the thirties. Before we had antibiotics. The E.U. awoke to that fact ten years ago when it banned antibiotics in animal husbandry. It’s just a matter of time. It’s a pretty simple fact that is easily understood. Life adapts and bacteria is life that is very good at adapting. The solution is super immunity from superbugs. How that happens without antibiotics? I don’t know, but a 21st century Pastuer could find a way.
