Food Systems Feeding the Next Superbug?

  30 August 2019

The emergence of Candida auris, a recently known fungus causing fevers and illness, often resistant to medicine, raises red flags about the overuse of antibiotics making bacteria and fungi harder to kill and potentially deadly to humans. In early April, a New York Times investigation revealed that simultaneous infection outbreaks of C. auris in more than a dozen countries had been kept out of the public eye. Researchers are still unable to pin down its causes, linking C. auris’ unbreakability to antifungals’ abuse in healthcare and agriculture, the article shows.
