Superbugs can not only render antibiotics useless but lead to prolonged suffering and death in humans. Focus on better sanitation and public awareness is the need of the hour.

There is a huge dearth of cleanliness in India--open defecation is rampant; garbage management in most cities is in shambles; toxic hospital and industrial wastes and sewage are allowed to drain into water sources and food products are laced with chemicals.

However, we still seem to be oblivious to the much more dangerous consequence of this incessant poisoning of our water, soil and environment and its impact on health and survival. For lurking behind the filth are superbugs or antibiotic resistant bacteria.

Superbugs, killers in disguise!
