For years now, scientists have warned us that an overexposure to antibiotics will cause superbugs to develop as our own immune systems become weakened by continuous vaccinations. Antibiotic resistance is a real threat and one which doctors from the NPS Medicinewise (a federally funded health education council) say has caused over three million prescriptions to be wasted on common viral infections. During the period of 2006 to 2008, antibiotic medicine sales dropped significantly but when swine flu came into play in 2009, this utterly idiotic disease caused sales to shoot up as billions of suckers the world over dropped hard-earned cash on wasteful vaccinations.
As for the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, they identified thousands of cases where doctors had over-prescribed antibiotics for infections such as repository tract disease – a nameless clinical research associate stated that one of the overlaying issues was that patients were expecting a quick solution to any illness and waiting for time to heal their illnesses was not on their agendas. They had busy lives and expected to jump back into the swing of things as quickly as possible.
When the standard patient falls ill, they fail to realize that a few days of rest would actually cure them of their illness – but today we have access to myriad drugs which can destroy the virus in a day or less; this unfortunately leads to the creation of superbugs. The regulatory affairs manager for the Royal Australian college of General Practitioners mentioned that doctors need to stop prescribing needless drugs and assist the public in building up their antibiotic resistance mechanisms once more. This is a worldwide problem with no quick solution, and the excessive use of antibiotics as a growth promoter in the agricultural market has also greatly contributed towards its position as a drug which has slipped into every facet of our lives.
