Antibiotic Overuse: Are you guilty?

The one with the smallest circle/ no circle is having a hard time fighting the bacteria.

Antibiotics don't kill viruses!

Viruses are not living things so, antibiotics won't help! Before you jump to the antibiotics, be sure to make sure you know what you have! ................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

The more you use these anitbiotics, the more your body learns how to fight it. Much like taking the same test over and over again. This is harmful, because if you ever get the sickness again, there will be less of a chance that the medicine will work!

Well, human kind has evolved so much and the theory of evolution, shows us that through each generation, our bodies start becoming more and more immune the more we use it. It is even predicted that all current antibiotics will be immune by 2020. Scary right?

So, you go to the dermatologist for your acne and they prescribe you an antibiotic for your blemishes and at first it works but in five years, after taking it, it has become less and less effective. Your body is becoming immune and you have to try more and MORE antibiotics, that never work.

So, What does this have to do with Evolution?

Imagine a world without antibiotics!

Don't take any antibiotics not perscribed to you, or if the doctor just suggests it.
