Doctors are finding that cases of gonorrhea are becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotic treatments.
Gonorrhea, one of the most common sexually transmitted infections in the world, occurs disproportionately among minorities who are marginalized due to race, ethnicity, class, and sexual orientation, according to the New England Journal of Medicine. In the last few years, doctors have seen a growing number of drug-resistant infections, but the disease is now becoming so resilient that it may soon become incurable.
Scientific American also notes that several other diseases have become harshly resistant to the typical methods of treatment, including a sample of E. coli bacteria found in Antartica and a form of tuberculosis found in India.
