    The main cause of drug-resistance is due to the use of antimicrobials both in humans and animals. And also due to dumping of inadequate treated effulence by pharmaceutical industries.

    Other causes are: poor of sanitation and lack of hygiene, patients not finishing their treatments, over use age of antibiotics to livestock’s and fish farming.

    Prevention:

    Intake your antibiotics and antimicrobials only if it is necessary.
    Wash your hands properly as soaps also contain anti-bacteria.
    Get organic foods.
    Ask for shortest course of antibiotics.
