On superbugs, antibiotics and self-medication

This video shows how superbugs become immune to even the strongest antibiotics. As a dentist and a surgeon, I have to prescribe antibiotics several times a day to my patients, to prevent infection in the bone following implant surgeries or complicated extractions.

And I always wonder if it’s 100% necessary. The truth is that a lot of people around the world self-medicate antibiotics the second they get a small cold or a snivel, and a lot of people don’t understand the difference between a viral infection, which causes the common cold, and a bacterial infection.

I really recommend that everybody gets a prescription for antibiotics when they are sick and do not self-medicate, because superbugs are a reality and once they set in there’s nothing that can save you!
