I just heard the CBC interview with Maryn McKenna on the Post-Antibiotic Age. From the Sunday Edition's web page:
Antibiotic-resistant superbugs like MRSA, C. difficile and CRE lurk in hospital rooms and kill patients who have undergone medical procedures that would have otherwise saved or improved their lives.
In fact, a lot of medical and public health experts now fear that we're on the cusp of an unsettling new age...the Post-Antibiotic Age.
Maryn McKenna is an award-winning science journalist who specializes in public health issues. She's a columnist for The Scientific American, and her books include Superbug: The Fatal Menace of MRSA, as well as an upcoming book about the connection between antibiotics and agriculture. She's also the author of a new article called "Imagining the Post-Antibiotics Future" for the online magazine, Medium.com.
Click through to listen to the interview. McKenna should have her own radio program; she has a wonderful radio voice, and has a lot to say in it.
