Drug Resistant Antibiotics & China

Horrible headline, but the best explanation of what happened so far.

Basically the price of Pork in China is a major issue. If it goes to high, you risk upset people. And if you use Colistin, a super antibiotics, with your pigs, it increases their weight. The problem is Colistin was one of the last antibiotics that worked against super bugs.

And why are not more antibiotics being developed? Cost in the US. The average drug costs is $2.6 Billion to get approved. And it does not make financial sense for antibiotics.
