Branching off an idea recently discussed, Are there also memetic
antibiotics? What are the memetic equivalents
* Moulds producing anti-bacterial substances in order to survive.
* People using those anti-bacterial substances in ever-growing doses.
* Bacteria developing immunity\resistance to anti-memetic substances by
natural selection.
* "Carnivorous-bacteria", common species of bacteria which become lethal on
certain circumstances. That
Streptococus [sp?] scaring northern-Europe about a year ago for example.

The stress is upon memetic antibiotics, not upon memetic immune-systems
and\or memetic antibodies.
