Antibiotic resistant humans?

January 10, 2012
The Journal

To the editor:

Can someone please explain to me how people become resistant to antibiotics, as Thursday's front-page article "Some antibiotics in livestock limited" says twice. Anitbiotics are supposed to act against germs, right? Not people. People can be allergic to antibiotics. That's not the same thing. Surely someone in our fine medical community has ten minutes to explain this. And while that question is on the table, here's another: Is it true, as some people say, that hand sanitizer creates superbugs? Because I'm not seeing any creative powers in a bottle of alcohol gel. Alcohol's not even a mutagen. Thanks!
