comment Can antibiotic resistant bacteria compete with normal one in an antibiotic free environment?
You do not listen. Ban penicillin worldwide and treat people with metronidazole. Then switch. Stain resistant to both of them will not survive in competition. After a year of penicillin treatment all metronidazole resistant stains will extinct. And so on.

How long will XDR tuberculosis and MSRA Staph last if we ban antibiotics or if we will globally alter one antibiotic with another once in a decade? That is a question. If resistant stains are less fit then normal stains then they will extinct.

I am interesting how AR strains are able to spread. If they can't compete with normal bacteria then worst possible scenario is to ban antibiotics worldwide for a year. Wait while AR bacteria instinct in a competition with normal one and remove the ban. Or better to switch between two types of antibiotics on odd and even years. If AR bacteria really lose to normal one then the issue is not as bad as it depicted in mass media.

AR bacteria is less viable it will not be present if I didn't use antibiotic. Both this infections fight not only with immune system but also with eachother and AR lose.

So it is a myth that antibiotic resistant bacteria is somehow dangerous? You will not catch this AR infection if you are not using antibiotic. Normal bacteria will outgrow it.
