MOAR peons to serve me.
MOAR resources, all mine.
MOAR ME!!!

I vote you die first mr. Genocide "xlink"

My own view, the more people on earth the more brains that could be used to better our lot.

After all, it is "US" humans that harness all these resources to serve us.
Shhh!

Interesting. I've always wondered about the idea of drug-resistant bacteria. Is it that some bacteria naturally had such genes, and only now that we've essentially "killed off" all other bacteria with drugs, that the "drug-resistant" ones are visible. Or is it that mutations occur because of the drugs we try to use to eradicate them? I'm sure the latter has happened to an extent, but I wonder if it plays a big role?

That being said, does it matter if a bacteria is drug-resistant when it's obviously not affecting the indigenous people that are drinking, eating, and bathing it in every day? Guess if you get an infection with enough of the bacteria, then it's not good.

I believe they have always had these genes. Beta-lactams are drugs like penicillin. Penicillin, as you may or may not know, was discovered by noticing that some fungus can inhibit bacterial growth. Fungus has been producing beta-lactam antibiotics, like penicillin, for millions of years.

So in other words the turf war between fungus and bacteria is ancient. Beta-lactamases are the bacterial response to the anti-bacterial weapons of fungi. Humans have simply discovered fungi's tricks and exploited them.

New anti-biotics currently being designed use entirely different mechanisms than beta-lactams. Beta-lactam drugs inhibit proper construction of the cell wall of bacteria.

That's what they get for defecating and floating dead bodies down the Ganges on a daily basis.

They also bath in and drink the water from the Ganges so it only makes since that they are bombarded with deadly bacteria.

What if these indigenous people were to travel? That's where the concern lies.

Ah, good point. So...you're advocating for international closed-border policies then... J/K!

It has everything to do with their disgusting habits. Some people are just nasty. Just because there are millions of people with the same habits doesn't mean they aren't totally asking for a meltdown. If you live in filth all day every day and spread the bacteria and germs around on your bodies all day to everyone around you some interesting things happen.

"It offers cheap, world-class medical care to Western tourists at private hospitals, yet has some of the worst child mortality and maternal death rates outside sub-Saharan Africa."

"There were more than 670 million cell phone connections in India by the end of August, a number that has been growing by close to 20 million a month, according to government figures.
Yet U.N. figures show that only 366 million Indians have access to a private toilet or latrine, leaving 665 million to defecate in the open."


"In Annabhau Sathe Nagar, a raised latrine of corrugated tin empties into a river of sewage that children splash in and adults wade across. The slum in east Mumbai has about 50,000 residents and a single toilet building, with 10 pay toilets for men and eight for women – two of which are broken."

"A large blue barrel outside a home is filled with murky brown water, tiny white worms and an aluminum drinking cup. "


-If people just keep ignoring their own health so they can have 2 cellphones they are obviously going to die out in a tornado of disease. If they are that dumb...

The average person in India does not have any concept of bacteria, viruses, or the idea of germs in general. My girlfriend did humanitarian work in India and she said they had no hygiene standards whatsoever. The entire concept of germs was alien to them.

It's quite shocking just how ignorant and uneducated the lower classes are in India.

EDIT: To add to my comment, most of them believe in spirits and demon possession. Most diseases are thought to be evil spirits.
