Benedictine University Antibiotic Resistance Discussion Questions
I’m working on a Biology exercise and need support.
Answer 2 questions about a page each using the pdf:
Antibiotic resistance is one of the greatest challenges to public health. Millions of people are affected by it every year. There is very little knowledge on the topic and how to solve the issue. The authors, Julian Davies and Dorothy Davies, emphasize how antibiotic resistant bacteria have the highest morbidity and mortality rates. Although researchers have yet to find a solution, do you believe it can be prevented? Based on background information the authors have provided and any prior knowledge on antibiotic resistance, explain a way in which you think this issue can be prevented or maintained.
The discovery of antibiotics is one of the most groundbreaking discoveries. “As in any field of biological study, antibiotic history is replete with misconceptions, misinterpretations, erroneous predictions, and other mistakes that have occasionally led to the truth” Describe what the authors Julian and Davies mean in terms of the problems that came along with antibiotics and provide an example.
