Superbugs: a case of natural selection

Regular price $89.00 $0.00

Antibiotic-resistant bacteria “superbugs” are a growing threat to public health. Where do they come from? And why is the problem getting worse?
Superbugs are the result of natural selection. This program examines:

  • the essential features of Darwin’s idea of natural selection (inspired by his visit to the Galapagos Islands)
  • malaria: resistance to anti-malarial drugs in the parasite and the mosquito carrier
  • other antibiotic-resistant bacteria (including Golden Staph and VRE Enterococcus) and how hospitals are grappling with the problem.
