FDA Strengthens Warning on Powerful Antibiotics

The FDA has strengthened warnings against a class of antibiotics called fluoroquinolones. The statement reported by NBC News says, "While these drugs are effective in treating serious bacterial infections, an FDA safety review found that both oral and injectable fluoroquinolones are associated with disabling side effects involving tendons, muscles, joints, nerves and the central nervous system."

TAKE A STAND: In the past, research has indicated that many prescribed antibiotics are unnecessary and cause damage. You can help yourself and your community by purchasing only antibiotic-free meats and other foods and using antibiotics only when absolutely necessary. This is an important step that everyone should take, even though ultimately the problem of antibiotic-resistance needs to be stemmed on a global level. That said, your lifestyle choices are the most critical factors in determining the health of your immune system, which determines your ability to resist infections.
