Rise of the superbug Bacteria

Superbugs are strains of bacteria that are resistant to several types of antibiotics. More than 58,000 infants died last year as a result of antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections, according to a study last year in British medical journal The Lancet. Former cures for these bugs are no longer as effective because the bacteria are mutating around them.  India has lost the war against the toughest forms of antibiotic resistance, largely because of poor sanitation, unregulated use of antibiotics and an absence of drug resistance monitoring, according to the man who discovered a type of drug resistance in bacteria in New Delhi.

India’s Nuclear Energy Problem

It’s an inevitable question. Conventional wisdom says that the energy demands of an ever-growing number of humans will soon push india’s resources to the limit. India has been among the world’s fastest growing economies for the past two decades. The country continues to lead not only in growth but also in energy demand growth. Over the next 25 years, India needs to raise about 800 million people up out of poverty by producing 3 trillion kWhs of electricity per year. That means India must triple its present power production by 2040. USA will be major contributor to this effort, six new reactors are under construction in India, and 40 more are planned. In just the next 20 years, India expects to increase its present nuclear fleet from 21 reactors. But Nuclear power is not quick fix of energy problem in India. After the Japan incident we have to also think about other sources of energy production. Do India have a choice? We have to think about it.
