Antibiotics are one of the biggest steps in the development of medicine and the desire to preserve and restore health that far in time mankind began to forget that these are drugs that are prescribed for certain symptoms.
Today, antibiotics are prescribed for the smallest problem in most cases without antibiogram to be seen which is the most appropriate antibiotic and we slowly but surely starts to damage ourselves with what is intended to save lives.
Antibiotics save lives – a fact, but not less true is the fact that harms health – when taken indiscriminately without prescription without reason.
Another big misconception is that everything is treated with antibiotics. Viruses are not susceptible to treatment with antibiotics and fighting a virus with antibiotics is at least useless if not harmful.
Drinking antibiotics for no reason and all too often risk to harm many more – to become resistant to antibiotics and a group at a time when you really need them, they do not work. This can be dangerous not only for individuals but also globally, as thus increase people infected with resistant bacteria. Alarming data alarm that people carriers increasingly resistant bacteria increased and this could become a global health threat.
We cannot afford to return to the era before antibiotics, because it would mean pneumonia once again become a deadly disease and organ transplantation and treatment of cancer to become impossible. And to not do so, all must be responsible and to appreciate discoveries that save lives, not destroy them.
Antibiotics are panacea but not in all cases so if we want to be healthy we should use them carefully and only with prescription. Otherwise this evolutionary inventory will become useless and even dangerous for life.
