Comment: Problem: breeding multiresistentcies brings money (Score 4, Informative) 237

by NotInHere (#49131911) Attached to: The Peculiar Economics of Developing New Antibiotics

The main point where multiresistencies are created is animals. When we give them antibiotics in order to enable "storing" them even denser, we enlarge the contact between patogen and antibiotics by a huge factor.
Our greed for cheap meat has brought us to the point where we destroy our own hardly-won victories against illnesses. And, the current system unfortunately even rewards you if you apply your antibiotics for animals -- by giving you money.

Yes please, require 10 certifications until you can connect a router to the internet. Best is the build is signed, and the user's access to the system is restricted, otherwise they can install malware because of infected computers. Of course every single of those 10 certifications needs money, but everybody can pay 1.000.000$ for releasing a build, so thats no problem. With government certifications, it would be ensured that insecure and uncertified router firmwares like dd-wrt are forbidden, which is good for users because of security and companies because then they can deliver an even better experience to their customers.
