As It Turns Out, The Antibiotics That Help Us Now Might Kill Us Later
Everyone has a theory about how the world is going to end. Will we fall at the hands of global warming? Nuclear war? Super volcanoes? Sinkholes?

It’s up to us to use antibiotics in ways that won’t make humanity come to a screeching halt like it did in Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Either way, I wouldn’t be surprised if the apocalypse ends up being James Franco’s fault in the end.
