Weekend read: Don’t let germs be your gift

A fair amount of my professional time is being spent on antimicrobial resistance at the moment. It is a frightening but fascinating topic, which is getting increasing coverage in the mainstream press.

One particularly good article on the subject appeared in The Scotsman last month: Lori Anderson’s “Don’t let germs be your gift” summarises some of the interesting parts of the topic.

If that article whets your appetite, then you could do far worse than to read Prof Dame Sally Davies’s book on the subject, The Drugs Don’t Work: A Global Threat. I admit a degree of bias, having played a very small part in putting the book together, but I found it an absolutely riveting read.
