Love the subtitle Ticking Timebomb /sarc, it ends;

‘We’re on the brink of Armageddon and this is just contributing to it,’ Wellington says. ‘Antibiotics could just stop working and we could all be colonised by .’

Ask places like population-dense (~1b) India why they aren’t storing their antibiotic medicines properly (a direct cause of growing resistance) with all that foreign aid money, but funding a space program.

Also, ponder the impact of allowing third-world immigrants into first-world countries, carrying in their colons (to be released into the sewerage system periodically) the worst bacteria cultures in the history of the world. Drink up that tapwater!
