Well, we've known about this for years and haven't bothered to do anything so far. What are the chances we act before it becomes a problem when acting is inconvenient?

We do things though. Why do you think antibiotics require a prescription?

Antidepressants require a prescription but depression isn't developing SSRI resistance. It's not a measure we've taken to fight antibiotic resistance
