Too Many Antibiotics!!

I discussed the overuse of antibiotics in the last post. Every antibiotic course we take has a biological cost. In other words, the overuse of antibiotics is resulting in the loss of our body’s ability to maintain our internal balance of diverse microbes that protect us from disease. Recent studies suggest that normal people have already lost 15% to 40% of their microbial diversity and the genes that accompany it. Our internal microbes have been with us as a species forever and have been constantly degraded over the last century. Since the world is now a very small place, we become that much more vulnerable to disease and scary unimaginable outcomes! We must cut antibiotic use and be more judicial in its use, and investigate the cost/benefit quandary.
