    Time to review the use of antibiotics and how the government should better protect us. Some things in America are just so ludicrous and harmful that it makes you wonder how low our culture and political system can go. Antibiotics can save lives. They should fight disease and infection to save lives. But this is a case of too much of a good thing is not wonderful. For years some in the medical community have tried to spread the message that indiscriminate use of antibiotics has been making some bacteria drug resistant and fatal superbugs. But over use of antibiotics for relatively minor ailments and problems caused by viruses in humans is nothing compared to even wider use of them in farm animals.

    Robotic Vaporizers Reduce Hospital-Borne Infections
    January 03, 2013 - It's a growing problem for hospitals around the world: strains of deadly, drug-resistant bacteria contaminating operating and recovery rooms. To combat this serious threat to patient health, two dozen U.S. hospitals are now using robotic, hydrogen-peroxide vaporizers to sanitize rooms where infected patients have stayed. A new study finds that use of the vaporizers' germ-killing mist has significantly lowered the number of hospital-borne infections.
