I realize that there are bacteria out there that cause lots of nasty stuff in suseptable persons. But, for some reason, today’s society is hell bent on getting rid of these infections that create problems, mostly through the use of vaccination. The problem is that Mother Nature is not inclined to be happy about it, so while we eradicate some infectious bug, another pops up right behind it (AIDS, anyone?).
This article clearly demonstrates this. While the pneumococcal vaccine has reduced the number of infections that it is made for, a subgroup of this same bacteria is increasing. I envision it as one large “whack a mole” game.
