Antibiotics Are Losing Their Effectiveness

18 Sep

The CDC officially acknowledged that antibiotics will soon become ineffective.

Centers for Disease Control warned that America is threatened by a wave of new antibiotic-proof germs that could threaten public health”


The cause of this problem is due to the over-use of prescribed antibiotics as well as the over-use of antibiotics in industrial agriculture.

There is and has been a concept known as Wait-And-See Prescriptions (WASP) for some time. The specific reason WASP has been used in countries like Sweden, is to reduce the likelihood of antibiotics losing their potency or effectiveness.

Perhaps it is time to initiate a WASP/ Wait-And-See Prescription program in the US.
