Germs can cause infections. Germs can spread. Germs can battle back against antibiotics. And germs can share their weapons with other germs. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention communicated on Tuesday the early outcomes of their targeted campaign to identify infections by “nightmare bacteria” – any of several germs that cause infections that are nearly impossible to treat with currently available medications.

There's still a perception that 3D printing is an expensive and overhyped way to manufacture cheap plastic toys, but the reality is that today's 3D printers can process a wide and increasing range of materials and complex designs.With comparatively low manufacturing costs - and no shipping costs - 3D printin...
