USELESS ANTIBIOTICS: The superbugs are winning the day (and the herbs

The day of the superbug, resistant to every kind of antibiotic, gets ever nearer. Researchers have been assessing the effectiveness of the antibiotic cirpofloxacin in intensive care units in the USA for the past decade – and it makes for worrying reading.


They have found that, in the six years until 2000, it declined from an 86 per cent effectiveness to just 76 per cent – and the researchers lay the blame squarely at the door at persistent antibiotic overuse.


Within the intensive care setting, the most common antibiotics are the fluoroquinolones, commonly prescribed for the treatment of urinary tract infections and pneumonia.


As with food infections, there are good herbal remedies to treat these problems – but we forgot, they’re banning them, aren’t they?
