LONDON (AP) — The World Health Organization has issued a list of the top dozen bacteria most dangerous to humans, warning that doctors are fast running out of treatment options.

In a press briefing on Monday, the U.N. health agency said its list is meant to promote the development of medicines for the most worrying drug-resistant bacteria, including Salmonellae and Staphylococus aureus. WHO’s Marie-Paule Kieny said that if such priorities were left to market forces alone, “the new antibiotics we most urgently need are not going to be developed in time.”

WHO said the most-needed drugs are for germs that pose a particular threat to hospitals, nursing homes and among patients who need ventilators. The agency said the dozen listed resistant bacteria are increasingly untreatable and can often cause fatal infections.

    it has come to me through thought not of my own,but still thoughts all the same. A list of thing that the Lord heavenly father wishes us to do . One of them being medication,believe it or not we are not suppose to take them because it opens our bodies to be use by demons and makes it easy to control us.Joined with the music we are being tricked and losing the battle on the spiritual war.We are suppose to trust in the lord and ask him to heal us and trust in him to do as he promised.The end is very very near as i have seen in a dream and we need to find heavenly father and find Jesus Christ. I also seen that we are to worship the father and love him and Jesus Christ,but we worship Jesus it seems all the time. Well heavenly father is what i call him because im afraid of crying out to the wrong name.He is the one who sent Jesus to pay for our sin because he loved us that much.Yet Jesus said don’t worship me but worship my father.i was giving a long list of thing i was suppose to share and it seems theirs alot of strongholds on us all. But i pray that someone shall see these few words sent from the LORD and pass it on . I had ms and i haven’t taken medicine for years now It has come to me that sickiness is a manifestaion and its started by man doctors.The Lord says trust no man because people selling drugs it’s for a profit.Please if your reading my message get baptized band make sure it done the way Jesus taught us for our whole body to be dunked into the water so that we are completely washed from our sin. catholic chruch is incorret .please trust in the lord and ask him to help guide you if you dont believe me.

      Thanks for your comment tifanie a ruiz!

      I believe that God put medicinal plants on earth for a reason, many of which help us with our ailments, and I believe that God wants us to use them wisely for such purposes. However, I also believe that using drugs on a recreational level can lead to demonic influence and even possession. Satan takes advantage of God’s original purposes and uses them for his own purpose.

      God is a trinity, composed of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. So if we pray to Jesus are we not also praying to our Father in heaven? And if we also pray to the Holy Spirit are we not also praying to Jesus Christ and our Father in heaven? Personally, I pray to all three, perhaps not all at the same time, but sometimes all at the same time, I use the three different names or persons of the Trinity in my prayers.

      I believe that we are to be baptized in water as an outward sign of our faith, not to cleanse us of any sin, only Jesus can do that. God is a Spirit, and the physical action of baptism is merely a shadow of what God does for us in spirit. I believe that all that is really true is in spirit, it is eternal.

      God bless! Maranatha!
