      Thank you for your information . What we need is for pharmacists , vets , drug manufacturers and drug suppliers to stop supplying the latest drugs for livestock .
      Look up the research . When we end up with traces of these drugs in our foods that bugs can overcome . That is why we have resistance to even the latest drugs . This is of even greater concern than patient non compliance .
      This should be made criminal offence internationally .
      Otherwise no one will save us from the pandemic to come .

    Sometimes I worry about super bugs like Ted Cruz posing a threat if I don't get enough exercise and study up on my god given right to use a brain. Good thing I practice getting sick every day and eat my vitamins and sunshine so I can handle some super bug or whatever. Because you know Felicia ain't gonna play square when it's her turn to monitor the most dangerous batch of plague known to man in the chilling rooms of the lab that one day you decided to play hooky and not show up for work after a night of spanky panky. But that's not a problem because nobody is really afraid of government conspiring to make everyone sick and if you have a problem with that you have a problem with the pharmaceutical community. Don't skip out on your vaccines! Annnnnnd POST

        Wait a second so the more I take antibiotics the higher chance the bacteria inside of me gets immune... in our country taking antibiotics is like literally mostly 99.99% of times of anyone with a simple cold!

        so do all depressing videos have that ominous intro? if not, you might want to consider doing that for the videos that cause 'existential crises' so the sensitive people can avoid them lol

                                  @Captain Spy it can be . its possible to make a bacteria immune to evrything for exemple lyme disease is immune to phages and not all antibiotics are effective

                                            there are some good bacterias that control the bad bacteria and help you digest that are eliminated by antibiotics so probiotics are also important

                                                      Its pisses me off so much. I know someone who goes to the doctor's when they have a cold and asks for antibiotics. And they fucking let her have them!!! GPs need to be held accountable for this. They are the ones that people who don't know any better are supposed to trust with their lives.

                                                                                        2) If you started a course of antibiotics prescribed by a doctor, do not interrupt it when you first improve your condition in, take until the end of the course.
