Bacteria numbers skyrocket in new cultivation method

Clip from Michael Mosley v The Superbugs SBS December 11, 2017

For 70 years war has been waged against harmful bacteria using antibiotics. Bacteria are fighting back and today more and more bacterial infections are becoming resistant to antibiotics. Drug-resistant superbugs are spreading, and not just MRSA, but also TB, pneumonia and E coli. In Britain, hundreds are already dying of these infections, mainly the very young or the frail and elderly. Experts warn that unless the problem is solved, by 2050 there will be a massive health crisis with over 10 million people dying of resistant-bacterial infection every year. Dr Michael Mosley goes in search of the causes of the crisis and new solutions to overcome it, and asks: Have we caused the resistant superbug crisis by overusing antibiotics?

Dr Michael Mosley puts human behaviour under the microscope in this bold series that uses the latest scientific studies to explore the evolutionary factors and animal instincts that drives human behaviour. A plush country house is fixed with surveillance cameras while a group of unwitting test subjects - former pupils of a UK school - are first exposed to youthful memories to test if it can improve their health. This episode looks at how we behave in groups and puts our notions of hierarchy to the test.

Michael Mosley and a team of experts place human behaviour under the microscope. In this episode, Michael and scientists Dr Jack Lewis and Dr Jennifer Wild explore the biology of fear and anxiety in the modern world. Fear is one of our most basic human emotions. In the past, it kept us from being eaten by a wild animal. But today, that isn't so much of a threat and yet we live in a state of anxiety - it's becoming unhealthy.
