Excessive use of antibiotics giving rise to superbugs

blood superbug (2)

Antibiotics have been used for a long time in order to counter even the least harmful diseases. Now, the negative effects of such an excessive use of antibiotics are starting to take their toll. Natural News reports that this unlimited use of antibiotics are now paving the way for the rise of superbugs that are impossible to control and contain with the application of existing drugs. In fact, according to Archives of Internal Medicine, these superbugs have already started to kill 48,000 U.S. citizens every year on average. The number is almost the same as the total number of American soldiers killed during the Vietnam War.

The unrestricted use of antibiotics has impacted the world in a way that was never anticipated. It gave the bacterial strains a chance to get accustomed to the antibiotics and thus become more and more resistant to the medicines. Though it is impossible to kill these antibiotic-resistant bacteria through conventional treatments, colloidal silver can prove to be effective in this regard. But the medical industry hardly accepts the effectiveness of colloidal silver and never recommends its use.

Amid this situation, a pharmaceutical company in California has decided to flood the market with antibiotics. They claim that this is a philanthropic step as they want each and every person in the U.S. to be healthy. But it is quite evident that this act is going to give rise to more and more antibiotic-resistant superbugs. In a statement made by the company, it has been indicated that their products can help people stay healthy, especially in the winter months when there is a prevalence of the flu. But the irony is that antibiotics are useless against the flu because they only work on bacteria and not on viruses and the flu is undoubtedly a viral infection, reports Natural News.
