Antibiotics Kills Good and Bad Bacteria In Your Gut
The other issue for you is that every time you take an antibiotic, you essentially also kill the good bacteria in your system.
Your body requires healthy bacteria to function properly and remove toxins.
Without these good bacteria, you ironically become susceptible to all kinds of health issues.
Many doctors will actually tell you now that if you take an antibiotic, you should also take a probiotic after to counter the damage caused by the antibiotic. But it isn’t that simple.
In short, long-term use of antibiotics will lower your immune system and put you at risk for some very serious diseases.
An Added Problem
What you may not be aware of is that even if you do not take antibiotics regularly, you are being subjected to them in the meat (beef, poultry and pork) you eat and even in the milk and other dairy products you eat.
The beef industry currently represents a whopping 70% of all antibiotic use in the United States! That means that only 30% of the antibiotic used is for medical reasons.
