Antibiotics. Antibiotics. Antibiotics. Research continues to reveal the toll that these drugs take on human health. Antibiotics (meaning, “Against Life”) have been associated with many diseases in adults and children – obesity, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, malnutrition, diabetes, neurodegeneration, and many others. Two new studies, just published in the International Journal of Obesity and Nature Journal, cite once again the link between antibiotic use and weight gain in children. Antibiotics are given to farm animals to increase their weight. This type of use alone can be considered to be practical scientific evidence that…http://candidaplan.com/blog/425/antibiotic-use-in-infants-is-associated-with-being-overweight/

In 1929, Alexander Fleming warned that bacteria could develop resistance to the newly discovered antibiotic penicillin, thus creating a more difficult problem. Today, the World Health Organization (WHO) lists antibiotic-resistance as one of the top 3 threats to human health. There are now 7 common species of bacteria that are resistant to all antibiotics, with Tuberculosis (TB) being one of the main ones, and concerns of upcoming TB epidemics being untreatable by medicine.

Was Alexander Fleming a prophet, or a scientist who…http://candidaplan.com/blog/379/antibiotics-unsafe-at-any-level/

As I continuously repeat in my posts, antibiotics destroy the ecosystem of the gut. This is repeatedly demonstrated by research. By destroying the ecosystem, they also reduce the diversity of the intestinal flora/bacteria. Studies have shown that a 5-day or 7-day course of antibiotics will wipe out the 100 trillion organisms/bacteria of the gut, leaving only a few antibiotic resistant strains. These antibiotic resistant strains will be the only ones present in the gut for up to…http://candidaplan.com/blog/419/antibiotics-a-pathway-to-colon-cancer/

More and more science points out how critical and essential the intestinal flora (microbiome) is for health in the body. We are “Super-organisms.” The current point of view is that we consist of host cells (human cells) and support cells (bacteria, parasites, viruses, yeasts, fungi, etc.). Over thousands of years, we have co-evolved into a cohesive and co-dependent unit, where the presence and health of all the parts (human and non-human alike) constitutes the health of the whole. This recent research article demonstrates how the intestinal flora, or gut microbiota, play a regulatory role in creating a healthy pregnancy.
