sharing knowledge; enhancing wellbeing.
I’ve said it once (or twice) before… And, I’ll say it again (and likely again and again!). Antibiotic resistance is on the rise. And, it doesn’t show any slowing so long as we continue on with our ignorant ways. What does that mean for YOU? Potentially bacterial infections that cannot be cured with antibiotics; thus, potentially life-threatening illnesses. EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THIS.
I read an article TODAY that reported antibiotic resistant bacteria is now found in at least 37 states (yes, United States). Other countries are not immune (no pun intended) either. What’s more, encountering certain types of superbugs puts a person at a 50% mortality rate! So, what can you do?
2) Google antibiotic resistance and look at some of the information out there on the web. Find out why using antibacterial products, taking antibiotics without first getting a positive culture back from your doctor, and eating GMOs and non-organic meats are all a part of the problem.
3) TELL YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS, CO-WORKERS, LOCAL BUSINESSES, ET CETERA that they can be a part of the solution by refusing to use antibacterial products (I see so many places that put this stuff EVERYWHERE, and it’s enraging – just wash your hands with hot water and regular soap as soon as possible instead of slathering that stuff on your hands!), eat GMO/non-organic meat, or refrain from asking for antibiotics without first knowing that you have an infection (something to think about – our water supply has antibiotics in it, likely from many sources including urine from animals and people!).
4) Share this post with everyone you know! Ignorance is bliss, but it is certainly not a part of the solution. Knowledge is power!
