Fox News -- -- team he's the vice chair.
Urology department at New York's.
Mount Sinai hospital -- didn't get here today we're very glad that.
There was a big draw we're getting here yet big drama out there today but my agreeing tidy but allowed -- doesn't -- here for adding that about wearing Green.
-- -- -- -- -- -- removed and when it's dark out there but again -- Napster are right so let's talk about this of the World Health Organization issues this warning saying essentially that.
That we're starting to become immune to antibiotics -- Yes that's -- has that turned out.
Well that has been going on now for the last two decades actually recover the program together about this staph Aureus.
Which is a very aggressive bacteria -- its floating in most hospitals in this country.
And they're becoming more more resistance to most antibodies to be used.
So it's not uncommon today to see that -- says doctors using two or three antibiotics to go after the same bug because these bugs and bacteria and viruses.
Are becoming very Smart they're revolving they're not responding to all of these guns and missiles I ripped that and there.
Asking for independence and they're not they're getting very Smart and they're not working.

I mean it -- is that -- is that actually a real -- reality.
That that's a very good theory and I'm glad you got it up so that -- that's -- is spreading rumors I have but well your theory is based on the fact that maybe you're wiping out all the bacteria is.
And when you actually need it we would be trouble.
That's that's a good one but that theory here is really.
The fact that the doctors we have used or misused so much antibiotics for either good reason or another good reason I'm over time.
These factors are evolving to resist and I -- what's going on us so really when the doctor you you have some sort of post nasal drip.
We have a little sinus infection and they start giving out about it.
Ask them to like.
