[Alert] New Antibiotic-Resistant Threat Discovered!
It’s a common sickness that impacts millions of American’s every year… and many of them are seniors.
And other than making you miserable for a few days, most folks are no worse for wear.
But that all could be about to change.
Because this seemingly harmless bacterial infection is threatening to become next on a growing list of antibiotic-resistant conditions.
And if it does, we’re looking at what researchers are calling “a global public health infectious disease problem.”
Strep is a nasty infection.
It can leave you with a throat so sore that it’s difficult to swallow, fever, vomiting, and more.
But with a quick round of antibiotics, strep can be cleared up in a matter of days.
For now, anyway.
Researchers have just learned that the bacterium that causes strep—Group A streptococcus—could become resistant to antibiotics in the future.
When researchers analyzed samples from over 7,000 Group A streptococcus strains collected from multiple countries, they found that two percent had gene mutations that caused the strains to be less vulnerable to certain antibiotics.
Two percent might not sound like much.
But what it shows is that this bacterium has the potential to become antibiotic-resistant. Up until this point, scientists didn’t think Group A streptococcus had the gene mutations that could contribute to antibiotic resistance.
They were wrong.
But their solution—to develop a strep vaccine—well, that’s wrong, too.
Instead of developing a new drug for a future problem, the better solution is to recognize the threat now—and take steps to prevent strep from becoming antibiotic-resistant in the first place.
And that’s up to you AND your doctor.
Doctors need to stop overprescribing antibiotics.
And when antibiotics ARE necessary, patients need to make sure they take the entire course.

Heart failure is nothing to mess around with. In addition to being deadlier than cancer, it’s also the number one reason people over 65 are hospitalized.
