EP 831 A Deadly Threat to Global Health
Most people think of cancer, Alzheimer's and heart disease as the biggest threats to our health, but what if we woke up in a world where an antibiotic-resistant disease has run rampant, creating a global pandemic?

In Deadliest Enemy: Our War Against Germs, co-authors Dr. Michael Osterholm and Mark Olshaker say that this devastating situation is more than possible -- it's inevitable -- and we should all begin preparing for it.

Looking back on outbreaks such as Zika, Ebola and MERS, the authors discuss what you can do to protect yourself from the growing threat of infectious diseases.
