The use of antibiotics is only indicated in severe bacterial infections in which our immune system cannot cope with the germ on its own. Did you know that incredible numbers of antibiotics are prescribed every year. Many people take them like candy.

So think twice the next time you insist your doctor give you an antibiotic.
