Antibiotics misuse rendering them ineffective...

    • Thread Starter


    To be fair, this is why I like the medical culture in the UK that anti-biotics should be prescribed by a doctor when they are necessary. Unlike some countries such as France and Spain, which you can buy willy nilly over the counter in Pharmacies. You may have a viral through infection, and taking an anti-biotic such as Amoxicillin in this case will do more harm than good.

    I thought this was quite obvious.., but money make people do stupid ****.

    No idea what this statement has to do with the original question... Are you high?

    This isn't exactly news, antibiotic resistance has been an issue for absolutely ages. The WHO sometimes dramatise things, but this is a worrying problem indeed
