    Antibiotics have become a familiar resource in households. We use them to treat infections and get cured eventually. However, with time, the infection-causing bacteria adapt to the environment and the antibiotic becomes less potent to cure the infection. Ultimately, we are left with antibiotic resistance, a global menace that, if not tackled in time, can
