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?
Also a very stable genius.

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.
