What Glatt said. I'm finally off all antibiotics after many years, not all
I still take clindamycin before all dental procedures.

Moral of the story

Stop taking antibiotics prophylactically.

They are effective, it appears, when used as a firebreak. To stop their progress. Not to sow their fields with salt, so to speak.

It seems that careless use of antibiotics like in that experiment, simply breeds STRONGER FUCKING BACTERIA.

How is this unclear to anyone?

because people are dumb. and when they are hurting they don't care about the bigger picture. See Trump.

And when prophylactic antibiotics in our food supply make the meat cheaper, they really don't care about the bigger picture. Money always wins.

Antibiotics suck - I wish my parents didn't give me a lot of those every time I had a cold. Now I'm in my 30s and my hands shake like crazy every time in a high pressure situation. One thing that has been working for me a lot is just drinking vegetable powder juices. I think they call it super greens powder.

Wouldn't it be fascinating if, in the future, no one could trust anyone's "personal opinion" anymore, because the majority were fake, and even the average people you knew were taking freelance gigs as "viral promoters" on the sly, and the pendulum swung back until the only thing people trusted were massive, expensive, high-production-value advertisements, because they figured at least the company had made enough money to afford the spot?
