antibiotics as pills


This website will be talking about the cons of antibiotics and some alternatives.

Antibiotics are a group of powerful drugs that are used to fight bacterial infections. The first type of antibiotic, penicillin, was invented by Alexander Fleming in 1928. They fight bacteria in two ways: they either kill them directly or stop the bacteria from growing too rapidly. Antibiotics are (at best) able to save countless lives for those who depend on them for treating sicknesses caused by bacteria, or those who are prone to sickness caused by bacteria because of a surgery or a major wound. But if antibiotics are used incorrectly, things can go terribly wrong for the patient.
