For those who have a n interest in the microscopic world, this will enlighten you and encourage more reading in this area. Without question the microbial world with have and continue to have significant impact on mankind. Despite modern medicine, microbes will continue to impact our lives. The advent of antibiotic resistances potential may through society back to the pre-antibiotic era, where infectious diseases were major contributors to morbidity and mortality. This will come as a huge surprise for many. Antibiotic treatments have been over used and abused. The microbes are one step ahead of us in the development of appropriate and adequate control measures. Flu, novel and emerging pathogens will be a continued old and new threat to society.
