How many of us have been to the mustawsif and had the doctor write up an antibiotic prescription for something that a warm chicken soup and some vitamin C could have taken care of? Well the antibiotic-quick-draw talent doctors have here has never been a good thing..as we already know the more antibiotics you take, the more likely you will be to destroy your immune system and the more likely you will be to create a strain of bacteria that is the superman of bad bacteria that will come after you with a vengeance.
Well, as as if things weren't bad enough.. there's more news this week:

-
Using antibiotics more than 10 times in childhood increases the likelihood of developing non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), a cancer that affects the body's lymphatic system, new research suggests.
-
remember antibiotics can be in the meat you eat if the source is not organic. So that 10 times doesn't just come from a prescription.
Parents, keep your kids warm and eating healthy so that they don't have to get a cold every other week..and a cold is not the flu, and some vitamins and tlc are better than the quick fix you get with antibiotics when you don't need them (there are certainly infections that require antibiotic treatment. You and your healthcare provider decide which ones, with care)

I totally agree! Antibiotics are treated like candy. Same goes for Panadol, and it's not taken seriously.

Hi Guys, nice to see you around..
Yeah 3baid, I forgot to add the piece in the same article that mentions that too much ibuprofen (advil etc) also increases the risk a small bit..
