The WHO now recognise that the use of antibiotics is causing a health volcano that is now about to erupt.
If you have a cold or the flu, refuse antibiotics. Tell your doctor you will use traditional methods such as rest, water and healthy foods, vitamins and echinacea (to help generate mucus that expels the virus).
Antibiotics do not work against viral infections! They are a nuclear option against bacteria, most of which are actually beneficial to us. Fungal based, these drugs will wipe out many of your digestive bacteria and thus result in long term problems as you are less able to absorb nutrients.
They should be preserved only for life-threatening infections. Adding antibiotics to animal feeds is evolving stronger and stronger germs that could cause epidemics we have no way to control.
