In the case of antibiotics, greed isn't the problem; from the medical side anyway. It's a loooong history of combination of doctors prescribing them unnecessarily to placate a patient (or a ped patient's parent) and of patients for whom it was appropriately prescribed not taking it for the full prescribed term. Both cases expose bacteria to the drug but not enough to kill everything, which allows them to build resistance.
In regards to the greed issue, the ag industry's use of them is a different issue.


I suspect another factor is that in some countries, particularly where the doctor sells the medicine to the patient, not a third party pharmacy, the doctor sells a few days' course of AB with instructions to return. But the patient feels a bit better and does not return.


Another thing I have found interesting is the discussion of hospital infections related to resistance of the bugs to the fancy pharmaceutical industry antibacterial chemicals. But I have never heard mention of resistance of bugs to the old traditional cleansing agents such as ammonia, or iodine or alcohol, which worked on gross physical attack rather than subtle biological attack. Somehow the chemical companies have got everyone excited by their better smelling products.

That has nothing remotely to do with politics.
It's all in the mind of the beholder, who the heck is the "beholder" anyway? Has anyone ever met him or her?

There was a user called 'Beholder' on the German DSLR Forum - he made most of his posts in the 'Nude' category gallery, so I guess the beauty was indeed in his eyes.

That brings up the question, can you really think you know a woman if you haven't seen her with her clothes off? Otherwise she might be hiding something.

Newsflash, you can see a woman naked 200X a day but unless she wants you to, trusts you, you will never REALLY know her. Some women are pretty much what you see is what you get types, but most of the women I've known in my life they have busy inner lives. They hold secrets their men seldom if ever learn about.

Thanks. I forgot to mention bleach. We use that at home for tasks such as dunny cleaning. The smell can get over-powering when cleaning the inside to the shower cubical door because of the lack of ventilation.
