Antibiotic Use Can Threaten Your Health

Antibiotic Threats

Our biggest threat comes from the agricultural industry that uses antibiotics indiscriminately and is filling our food supply with these chemicals. The only way to avoid them is to purchase meat from animals that have been raised without them. 
There is a relatively new group of antibiotics that are even more harmful than the older ones. They are called Fluoroquinolones because they contain fluoride. The fluoride helps the antibiotic get deeper into the cells, but fluoride is a neurotoxin. It kills brain cells. Unfortunately they are the most widely prescribed antibiotics. The side effects of these drugs are not for the faint of heart and do not always go away when you stop taking them. They can cause permanent damage to the human body. They are found under the names;
  • Ciproflaxacin (Cipro)
  • Levofloxacin (Levaquin)
  • Gemifloxacin (Factive)
  • Moxifloxacin (Avelox)
  • Norfloxacin (Noroxin)
  • Ofloxacin (Floxin)
