By 2050 it is predicted that bacterial infection will be mans biggest killer overtaking cancer, heart disease, stroke etc.I've been prescribed antibiotics a number of times. I've been surprised at how complex the decision has become. Different germs respond to different antibiotics, and if they stop responding, the doctor doesn't just throw darts at a dartboard. There are specific protocols. Sometimes they have to test you to see exactly which germ is making you sick.
So I think DIY antibiotic choice is very risky, and undoubtedly contributing to the mess we are in with drug-resistant bacteria.
Not sure the human race as we know it has 300 years....Again, germs are going to mutate anyway, no matter what. It's what they do. Even if all antibiotics were banned all over the planet for the next 60 years, in 60 years plenty of today's germs would have naturally mutated enough, that most of today's treatments would be useless, including antibiotics.
My daughter, and I had an interesting discussion. In 300 years from now, the viruses, and diseases, for the most part, would be radically different from the ones we face today. Just like now, many illnesses, and ailments that were serious in yesteryear, are harmless, or have been eradicated now. In 300 years, I suspect a lot of what we face today, will be things of yesteryear. In that time, there will be diseases, and illnesses they will face, that we've never even heard of.
Too sad. Such a tragic and preventable way for a child to dieI was just reading today about the study published in the 90's that supposedly said that vaccines caused autism. (They DON'T.) The study was retracted years later (which is a big deal) but people are still quoting it. Most of the quotes were to say it the results were false, but sadly, it's still alive and well, killing children.
Samoa actually closed all the schools. They are taking it seriously due to the sudden rash of deaths.
Poor you, no mumps! Got all those and mumps too. Older sister and I managed to miss out on the scarlet fever which my younger sister got, don't know from where or how we managed to miss it.So I got sick with measles, rubella, and chicken pox. Somehow missed the mumps.
Sure does, same virus. After you recover from the outward symptoms and think you have it beat it goes and hides in your spine waiting for a sneak attack decades later. Mine was about 10 years ago, before I was "old enough" for the vaccine. One of the most painful experiences of my life. I got the vaccine a few years ago before the new one came out, guess I should get that one too because I do NOT want shingles again.and chicken pox suppose to make us more susceptible to shingles right
Hmm, wonder why that would be. Maybe you could record the little demons some day so you can play it back while you clean houses just so you don't suffer in silence.Hi Bob! I’m cleaning houses today...much quieter
