The truth about "antibiotics"

  • Antibiotic-resistant disease is a major threat to public health, and the primary cause for this man-made epidemic is the widespread misuse of antibiotics—both in medicine and agriculture
  • Recent research shows children whose mothers took antibiotics during their pregnancy were more likely to develop asthma. Children predisposed to asthma were twice as likely to develop asthma if their mother used antibiotics during the third trimester, compared to those whose mother did not use antibiotics
  • A baby gets his or her first "inoculation" of gut flora from the mother’s birth canal during childbirth, which is why a mother’s use of antibiotics during pregnancy may predispose the child to asthma and a variety of other ailments, including neurological dysfunction and autoimmune disorders
  • One chicken farmer has demonstrated that even large-scale animal farming can manage without routine administration of antibiotic drugs by using an herbal remedy of oregano oil and cinnamon instead
  • You can help yourself and your community by using antibiotics only when absolutely necessary and by purchasing organic, antibiotic-free meats and other foods. Natural compounds with antibiotic/antiviral activity include oil of oregano, garlic, and Echinacea, which you can try before resorting to drugs
