Antibiotic-Resistance and Why it’s a Big Threat

Ayala, Jackeline

   Lately in the medical field there have been many problems and threats one of them being, Antibiotic-Resistance. Antibiotic-Resistance is when someone gets a bacterial infection and their body becomes resistant to antibiotics. Antibiotics is a type of medicine to cure bacterial infections. This is a threat because leaving an bacterial infection untreated has many bad consequences and may even lead to death.

   An example of a bacterial resistant to antibiotics is Gonorrhea. Gonorrhea has been resistant to all of the medication it has been used to cure it, but there is still one medicine out there that could be effective. Like mentioned before if it goes untreated it can cause many complications in both men and women, and can also be life threatening.
