Antimicrobial resistance has become a major challenge in the treatment of diseases all over the world.
From Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococci, and other bacteria and fungi, recent research indicates that not only do these organisms develop adaptive mechanisms against drugs, but human activities also contribute in large to this drug resistance and hence expensive healthcare.
Agrigcultural activities have progressed to the stage of farmers and merchants injecting and spraying crops and livestock with unnecessary drugs to produce better products in meat and milk. Some even use beta agonists to increase lipolysis thus elevate produce. When consumed by human, there is increased resistance.
Another human factor is unprofessional pharmacists who dish out antimicrobial drugs at any slight infection such as cough or colds contributing immensely to drug resistance.
These hazardous ways if avoided can help tackle antimicrobial resistance immensely.
