The patterns and colours reminded her of modern art, and seemed just as suitable for a museum wall as they did for a laboratory.<br /> <br /> Dr Iacobuzio-Donahue collaborated with medical photographer Norman Barker to create the book Hidden Beauty: Exploring the Aesthetics of Medical Science.<br /> <br /> One of the book's main goals is to explore the juxtaposition of how beautiful diseases can look up close - and the reality of how they wreak havoc on our bodies.<br /> <br /> Produced by the BBC's Taylor Kate Brown and David Botti<br /> <br /> Images courtesy: Christine Iacobuzio-Donahue and Norman Baker Antibiotic 'apocalypse' warning tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2013-01-24:2182797:Video:2150839 2013-01-24T13:56:29.582Z Napoleon Bonaparte http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/napoleonbonaparte <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/antibiotic-apocalypse-warning"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="135" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/wZ6gv5BX9U5XqGzybdsQrJ4yUkRoV8QR5B-Y7toGW818bklkefkUnurJw9hM*0ANjE0ChL8zycVyXwA*WqcRq9QWAm8jXyyH/tmp538672.png?width=240&amp;height=135" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>The rise in drug resistant infections is comparable to the threat of global warming, according to the chief medical officer for England.<br></br> <br></br> Prof Dame Sally Davies said bacteria were becoming resistant to current drugs and there were few antibiotics to replace them.<br></br> <br></br> She told a committee of MPs that going for a routine operation could become deadly due to the… <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/antibiotic-apocalypse-warning"><br /> <img src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/wZ6gv5BX9U5XqGzybdsQrJ4yUkRoV8QR5B-Y7toGW818bklkefkUnurJw9hM*0ANjE0ChL8zycVyXwA*WqcRq9QWAm8jXyyH/tmp538672.png?width=240&amp;height=135" width="240" height="135" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />The rise in drug resistant infections is comparable to the threat of global warming, according to the chief medical officer for England.<br /> <br /> Prof Dame Sally Davies said bacteria were becoming resistant to current drugs and there were few antibiotics to replace them.<br /> <br /> She told a committee of MPs that going for a routine operation could become deadly due to the threat of infection.<br /> <br /> Experts said it was a global problem and needed much more attention.<br /> <br /> Antibiotics have been one of the greatest success stories in medicine. However, bacteria are a rapidly adapting foe which find new ways to evade drugs.<br /> <br /> MRSA rapidly became one of the most feared words in hospitals wards and there are growing reports of resistance in strains of E. coli, tuberculosis and gonorrhoea.<br /> <br /> Prof Davies said: "It is clear that we might not ever see global warming, the apocalyptic scenario is that when I need a new hip in 20 years I'll die from a routine infection because we've run out of antibiotics."<br /> <br /> She said there was only one useful antibiotic left to treat gonorrhoea.<br /> <br /> "It is very serious, and it's very serious because we are not using our antibiotics effectively in countries.<br /> <br /> "There is a broken market model for making new antibiotics, so it's an empty pipeline, so as they become resistant, these bugs, which they would naturally but we're breeding them in because of the way antibiotics are used, there will not be new antibiotics to come."<br /> <br /> Possible solutions will be included in her annual report to be published in March.<br /> <br /> The World Health Organisation has warned the world is heading for a "post-antibiotic era" unless action is taken.<br /> <br /> It paints a future in which "many common infections will no longer have a cure and, once again, kill unabated".<br /> <br /> Prof Hugh Pennington, a microbiologist from the University of Aberdeen, said drug resistance was "a very, very serious problem".<br /> <br /> "We do need to pay much more attention to it. We need resources for surveillance, resources to cope with the problem and to get public information across.<br /> <br /> But he said it was not a problem entirely of the UK's making.<br /> <br /> "People are going abroad for operations, going abroad for, let's say, sex tourism and bringing home gonorrhoea which is a big problem in terms of antibiotic resistance - and then there's tuberculosis in many parts of the world.<br /> <br /> Prof Pennington said the drugs companies had run out of options too as all the easy drugs had been made.<br /> <br /> "We have to be aware that we aren't going to have new wonder drugs coming along because there just aren't any."<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-21178718">http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-21178718</a> Penn and Teller - Vaccinations (Full Episode) tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2011-10-02:2182797:Video:1678191 2011-10-02T07:18:33.963Z Donegal http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/Donegal <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/penn-and-teller-vaccinations-full-episode"><br /> <img src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/M93413D*HzoTme6XOijHdJs79fKP9oLDXZGtoUeRqsaIPw1ZtVK9-NsyBSRgBenXots7PzEc1o2hQc7heMj-9BgkbPA4Babx/558074303.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />One of my all time pet peeves: the anti-vaccination movement.
