Antibiotics and your Health

ImageAntibiotic resistance is the ability of a microorganism to withstand the effects of an antibiotic.  Multiresistant strains become  superbugs. Science Daily outlines the many ways that antibiotic resistance has grown to be the threat it is to our health today.

Overuse of broad-spectrum antibiotics, unnecessary prescriptions, improper use of antibiotics by patients, and the introduction of antibiotics  into our food through livestock have all hastened the resistance to antibiotics of infections that can kill.

In order to effect change in this cycle of antibiotic abuse we can eat organic meat, rest when we do become ill, resist the temptation to take a pill for every cough and cold, exercise and support our constitution with homeopathic and natural health care.
