It's not what NS eats that is important, nor is it a question of what antibiotics NS may have had in the past. It's that the new super-bugs get out into the environment and infect people and the antibiotics that used to work are no longer effective. It is not "my theory" or anybody's "theory", it is a fact. You would not think it was blown out of proportion if YOU had the infection that didn't respond to drug after drug after drug (was it 4 in the case of NS before they found something that helped?)
One example: tuberculosis (consumption, phthisis, scrofula, Pott's disease, the White Plague) was a huge killer for thousands of years, but was almost always curable after antibiotics were developed. There is now a new strain of TB that is resistant to every known antibiotic.
