HOW MODERN MEDICINE COULD END OUR SPECIES

We humans seem bent on always taking the easy way out, eat the candy and tomorrow be damned.  So we burn oil and heat up the planet, we farm for profit and pollute the ground and oceans, and now our medicine is helping fast-evolving* bacteria to out-run our science.  Could the next plague be completely unstoppable?
