    Interesting finding!! There's positive research resulting from the whole "antibiotic resistance" problem. This study reminds me of one posted here at HH a few weeks ago about antibiotics causing gut microbes to stop signaling the the lining of the lungs that an impending flu bug was about to invade. By the time the lung cells mounted a defense, the flu had taken hold and became more deadly.
