Such development of antimicrobial resistance in many pathogenic microbes poses one of the most serious problems in the arena of controlling infectious diseases [3,13,14]. Because antimicrobial resistance results from the ability of microbes to adapt to anthropogenic pressures, it is not a passing trend, but likely a permanent feature, in the fight against infectious disease . Table 6 is a partial list of preservatives and biocides  to which resistance has been reported since 1942. Considering the macroscopic scale of globalization, it interferes with infectious disease control at the national level.
