The end of Modern Medicine has arrived, according to the WHO

The day is coming when the host of antibiotics doctors currently use to fight off bacterial infections wont work anymore, leaving the worlds population vulnerable to everything from scratches on your knee to disease, according to the United Nations UN World Health Organization WHO.
Thats because bacteria are becoming so resistant to common antibiotics that the phenomenon will bring about the “end of modern medicine as we know it,” warns Margaret Chan, the director-general of WHO.
What that will mean for mankind, she says, is that – if current trends persist – todays antibiotics will essentially become useless, and so much so that even routine operations wont be possible. A cut could be fatal.
More than that, however, breakthrough drugs to treat long-standing diseases like tuberculosis, malaria and HIV/AIDS would suddenly become ineffective.
“Things as common as strep throat or a childs scratched knee could once again kill,” she said. “Antimicrobial resistance is on the rise in Europe and elsewhere in the world. We are losing our first-line antimicrobials.”
An evolving threat
She said replacement medications for antibiotics would most likely take longer to heal and, naturally, would be more expensive.”Replacement treatments are more costly, more toxic, need much longer durations of treatment, and may require treatment in intensive care units,” Chan noted.
