Cigarette Smoking May Increase Antibiotic Resistance

Cigarette Smoking May Increase Antibiotic Resistance Researchers said that exposure to smoke can make strains of Staphylococcus aureus drug-resistant. This microbe appears in up to 60 percent of the global population. S. aureus has been linked to potentially deadly diseases, such as skin infections, pneumonia and endocarditis.

This stress then forces the microbe to make emergency response by increasing its mutation in microbial DNA. Such response makes S. aureus stronger and capable of resisting antibiotics, the researchers said.
