Smart Video Reveals How Antibiotics May Have Created a Dangerous Apocalyptic Scenario

Video: Kurzgesagt details the "antibiotic apocalypse" in their latest video and it's a doozy.

These superbugs are now immune to those antibiotics, which could lead to a pandemic. Luckily, it's not all bad! As bacteria evolves, we get smarter too. So it's a race to stay ahead of the doom, basically.

    If you've never listened to Radiolab now should be the time you start.
