Are you concerned about Super bugs?

They have been in the hospitals for years and are showing up in communities more and more.
Most drug companies are not working on developing new antibiotics that the bacteria are not resistant to.
This is happing because Doctors have over prescribed antibiotics for years. They have no affect on Viruses but some people want them for every cold.
Live stock have also been feed antibiotics.
I only eat organic or minimally processed chicken.
What do we do now?
I just watched a report on CBS Evening News. This is upsetting.

Yup... it is a problem, and we need to find better ways to combat these bugs, but I think we also have to remember that the news does what ever it can to get people to watch. They have a tendency to sensationalize every story. While the threat is real, they always make it sound like the Boogey Man is knocking specifically at your door. That doesn't mean we should ignore the issue, just that we shouldn't get overly anxious to the point that we can't enjoy our lives.
I think the wooden cutting board would be a fair example. They made it sound like anyone using a wooden cutting board was doomed. While I was growing up, everyone used wooden cutting boards, and not once in all the years, and out of all the people I knew, did I ever hear of even one person getting sick from a cutting board transfer of a pathogen.
While the threat is real, it's not as sure a thing as the news makes it out to be. So I take precautions, as in frequent hand washing, especially after being in public places, but I don't see doom lurking in every corner either. If I did, I couldn't enjoy my life.
