Answer ( 1 )


    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.


    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.
