      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 .

                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.

                                                  Follow the simple rules:
                                                  1) Do not use antibiotics when there is no need for this.
                                                  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.
