People are living longer thanks to antibiotics (remember how scared characters in Jane Austin novels were of sore throats?), surgery, insulin, &c. Unfortunately there is also a huge obesity epidemic in the US. So maybe today's adults will live longer despite the risks of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes, thanks to a cocktail of medications. They will probably also have more back, hip, knee, and foot problems due to carrying excess weight. Unfortunately this epidemic is affecting children, who are expected to grow up with a lot of health problems. Girls are entering puberty at age 8 now, and this may be related to diet.

Some medical researchers think that breast cancer is related to environmental chemicals. As is the deformation and disappearance of frogs in our wetlands.

Those days are apparently returning - remember 'MRSA'?

-
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is also called multidrug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and oxacillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (ORSA). The development of such resistance does not cause the organism to be more intrinsically virulent than strains of Staphylococcus aureus that have no antibiotic resistance, but resistance does make MRSA infection more difficult to treat with standard types of antibiotics and thus more dangerous.


MRSA is especially troublesome in hospitals and nursing homes, where patients with open wounds, invasive devices, and weakened immune systems are at greater risk of infection than the general public. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methici...ococcus_aureus



QUOTE FROM WHO (WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION)
"Antibiotics were regarded as the solution to infectious diseases but they are becoming less effective as resistance to them spreads," said WHO Director General Hiroshi Najakima and it is one of the main dangers facing world health today, warns the 1996 World Health Report. "The resistance of diseases to antimicrobials has increased dramatically in the last decade, with a deadly impact on the control of diseases such as tuberculosis, malaria, cholera, dysentery and pneumonia," it says. ENDQUOTE




And the above mentioned report was published sixteen years ago. The reality is, antibiotics are less effective because bacteria have become increasingly resistant: antibiotic resistance results when some bacteria are able to adapt to survive in the presence of an antibiotic.
