Worth a Watch: Life finds a Way

I came across this TED talk by Ramanan Laxminarayan (Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy) titled, ‘The coming crisis in antibiotics.’ Definitely worth a watch. The Issue: Bacteria are becoming resistant to Antibiotics. The Key Message: Life find a way. It’s not only a problem in Antibiotics, but we are seeing this issue in multiple areas: including drug resistant tuberculosis, resistance developed by viruses and agricultural pests, etc. There are number of ideas discussed on how to handle the issue with ideas drawn from the energy sector. Definitely a relevant topic for this year and a very important topic that everyone including government, doctors, pharmaceutical companies and the general public should plan and execute for the long term well being on the human race.
