In what ways are antibiotics harmful?



  1. 0 Votes

    The over-use of antibiotics, both for humans and livestock, has the potential to add so many antibiotics to the surrounding environment that large numbers of microorganism develop resistance to these products. Populations of antibiotic-resistant microbes may then be able to transfer their resistance to disease organisms, making it difficult or possible to treat certain strains of diseases with antibiotics. This is part of the reason why it’s not a good idea to take antibiotics unless you really need them. It also means there’s reason to worry about the large amounts of antibiotics fed or injected into cattle and other animals in the livestock industry.
