(NaturalHealth365) A staggering 70 percent of children and 40 percent of adults take antibiotics – every year. They are also given to literally billions of animals that are used for food. But, here’s the real shocker: the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that “30 percent of all antibiotics prescribed in outpatient clinics are unnecessary.”
And, while proper use of certain antibiotics may offer benefits, over 10 percent of users report experiencing adverse antibiotic side effects. In some cases, the use of antibiotics has led to long term health issues and even fatalities.
