Antibiotic resistance and Iatrogenic medicine's losing war on disease - "Superbugs" Book Review
Superbugs is a well-written deep-dive into the fascinating history of antibiotics and a glimpse into the frontline struggle of doctors and scientists versus some seriously nasty strains of infectious bacteria and fungus. The book is written by Dr. Matt McCarthy, a staff physician at New York Presbyterian Hospital.

Taking these red pills about the monstrous betrayals of humanity committed by the institutions of sciences and medicine can be depressing but the antidepressant is action, in this book review we'll include some evidence-backed biohacks that you can and should implement to fortify yourself against this world rife with microscopic villains.
