08 March 2019, EU researchers find link between resistance to antibiotics and sanitation

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) – the ability of microorganisms to resist antimicrobials such as antibiotics – is directly linked to sanitary conditions and the population’s general state of health: the better the sanitation, the lower the problem of AMR. This is one of the conclusions of a large EU-funded investigation into the AMR problem that gathered data through state-of-the-art DNA analysis of sewage around the globe.
