Scientists find first superbug strain of gonorrhea


Scientists have found a "superbug" strain of gonorrhea in Japan that is resistant to all recommended antibiotics and say it could transform a once easily treatable infection into a global public health threat.

The new strain of the sexually transmitted disease -- called H041 -- cannot be killed by any currently recommended treatments for gonorrhea, leaving doctors with no other option than to try medicines so far untested against the disease.

I have been doing a power point presentation on viruses and it is totally crazy how many they are and how hard they are to do anything about.

On another note, I have also learned what cancer is. You always here about it but I never really knew what it exactly was or what it did to the body.

Read The Emperor of all Maladies by Siddhartha Mukherjee if you get the chance.
