The danger posed by growing resistance to antibiotics should be ranked along with terrorism on a list of threats to the nation.
This is the warning from the UK government’s chief medical officer for England has said.
Professor Dame Sally Davies described it as a “ticking time bomb”.
She warned that routine operations could become deadly in just 20 years if we lose the ability to fight infection.
Dame Sally urged the government to raise the issue during next month’s G8 Summit in London.
Dame Sally said: “If we don’t take action, then we may all be back in an almost 19th Century environment where infections kill us as a result of routine operations. We won’t be able to do a lot of our cancer treatments or organ transplants.”
She said pharmaceutical companies needed to be encouraged to develop new drugs, because the manufacture of antibiotics was not viewed as profitable.
“We haven’t had a new class of antibiotics since the late 80s and there are very few antibiotics in the pipeline of the big pharmaceutical companies that develop and make drugs,” she said.

Man is the biggest fool that has ever walked the Earth. Not only is he polluting God’s creation beyond what is repairable.
He is also trying to play “god”. Just like when he tried to build the tower of Babel.
Medical science is always bringing man one step forward, and one step behind. Because when you solve on medical problem with chemical substances, you create another problems.
Super-bugs is a fruit of mans foolishness. Antibiotics has now been followed by anti-antibiotics.
Jesus the Messiah warned us in the garden of Eden, about man trying to play God. That was one of the reasons for why man got expelled from the perfect presence of God.
At the end of the broad walk down the broad path, man shall face His creator God. That last encounter is not going to be pleasant.
Repent or perish.
