Evidence is emerging that biocides and heavy metals all contribute to the growing problem of antimicrobial resistance. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in the clinical setting has been getting increasing coverage in the media in the past few years. However, emerging research shows that there is more than just the overuse of antibiotics which leads to AMR. The use of biocides and heavy metals contribute to the global problem of AMR and only targeting antibiotic use will not solve it.
