Antibiotic overuse documentary

A great little free documentary. Unfortunately (as Bapcha's comment shows) far too many people know far too little about antibiotics and what they do. Half of all antibiotics are prescribed inappropriately - and hospitals that have started managing them properly have made savings of hundreds of thousands of dollars annually from lower drug costs, less drug side effects and shorter hospital stays.

All superbugs came from antibiotic overuse - not underuse. It's very clear that the more we use them, the more we find resistant organisms. The example of Norway in this documentary shows how with stringent controls and social changes (less "addiction" to using antibiotics for every sniffle, and less use in agriculture) you can avoid the superbugs like MRSA.

Do we really want to kill all the bacteria? There are more bacteria in your body than human cells. We need some of them... Yes there are vulnerable people out there - but if we want to save them from superbugs the rest of us have to act more responsibly - patients and doctors alike.

I have saved this to my iPad to use for educational purposes for medical students and doctors.

Remembering 911

Thank you Dan for a wonderful report. It was tastefully done. It focused on the upside of what happened on 9/12 when Americans came together to help one another. I am proud to be a volunteer with the New York Says Thank You Foundation and the National 911 Flag Restoration Tour as a Stitcher.

As usual - USELESS reporting.

Dan Rather's "addicted to antibiotics" is a rather ill-thought out, one dimensional documentary. NOBODY is addicted to
antibiotics. Addiction is psychological PLUS physiological, and antibiotics are not amenable to addiction. If he means
"societal addiction", NOBODY has actually studied how much $$$$ antibiotics actually save - as opposed to a tiny sliver
of overuse.

Certain ex-cancer patients are better served overusing antibiotics - than dying of pneumonia.

Bottom-line: Like ALL medicines, antibiotics have their good and bad effects. Only your physician is qualified to
make a decision on whether you should be taking it - OR NOT. If there is an upside, I see little to no problem when
antibiotics are overused - better we kill all the bacteria - than dose half-way, NOT kill the bacteria, and end up with
a super-bug.
