Use of antibiotics in farms may increase ‘super bugs

A new research has pointed out the increasing problem of super bugs to the extensive// use of antibiotics in the agricultural farmlands.

Super bugs are a new kind of microorganisms, mainly bacteria by nature, which may not be affected by a wide range of antibiotics.

The researchers of Fogarty International Center and others who together had published the research report blame the use of antibiotics in agricultural farms for creating the super bugs. They research had found traces of such bacteria in the air and surface of the farms, in the ground water, in the wild animals that live around and in the animals raised in the farms for the market. These antibiotic resistant bacteria are carried from the farms to the kitchen and in turn infect the humans from common handling through unsafe procedures. Once eaten along with food, these bacteria may survive in the humans enough to cause diseases that may not be treated with common antibiotics.

Based on the evidence that the researchers have found in their studies, they feel that the transmission of these bacteria in humans can happen faster than any transmission of bacteria in hospital conditions.
