Antibiotics side effects


Antibiotic overuse doesn't just make us vulnerable to minor infections that can become life-threatening when the bacteria have developed resistance against one or more antibiotics, Antibiotic use in childhood also appears to be linked to a host of problems well into adulthood.
Taking Antibiotics JUST IN CASE is highly inadvisable & you'd be wise to rid yourself of this misconception.

Many studies have shown Antibiotics have both short & long-term effects on the composition & health of the microbes in your gut & your microbiome play a crucial role in your overall immune function & general health. 

Research also suggests children treated with antibiotic raise their risk of developing health problems in adulthood, including making them more susceptible to infectious diseases, allergies, obesity & autoimmune disorders as they grow older...

Frequent & inappropriate use of antibiotics can cause bacteria or other microbes to change so antibiotics don't work against them. This is called Bacterial Resistance or antibiotic resistance. Treating these resistant bacteria requires higher doses of medicine or stronger antibiotics. Because of antibiotic overuse, certain bacteria have become resistant to even the most powerful antibiotics available today. 

Sometimes taking antibiotics can cause a person to develop diarrhea due to a lack of good bacteria that help to digest food properly.
