Drug-Resistant Bacterial Kills 23,000 People a Year

A new study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that antibiotic-resistant bacteria kills roughly 23,000 Americans each year. Researchers blame overuse and misuse of antibiotics for the mass drug resistance happening in the U.S., says the Associated Press. CDC officials claim that a majority of those deaths come from staph infection methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
