Environment and the antibiotic resistance


Environment is all around us and is influencing antibiotic use by us as well as the development of antibiotic resistance. We are dumping antibiotics in our environment, which in turn is not only helping resistance development in bacteria but is also toxic to us.

We may not be able to control the environment fully
But
We may become wise
And
Manage antibiotic resistance better
If we know
What`s the relationship between
The environment and the antibiotic resistance
