The future of Infectious Disease: Management and Prevention of Decay?

A brief missive: I was thinking as I posted yesterday's story about a potential microbacterial link to colon cancer that this is perhaps the next frontier for infectious disease (ID) specialists and microbiologists. As we begin better managing infectious diseases as an entity, I think we will likely need people to explore and treat infectious diseases as etiologic agents of other diseases (see gastric ulcers, gingivitis, etc). In other words, as we better manage (and move from) the era of Disease, ID will find a central place in the era of Decay
