I am sure posters here are very cautious about anti-biotic use in themselves and their children. But What I found worrying about this article is that it seems the gut flora never recovers from the loss of beneficial bacteria as the result of anti-biotic use and that this can reach through the generations, so a mother with lost flora will result in her child having lost flora too.
The impact on the health of our children seems to be a pandemic of chronic diseases rare fifty years ago, with the emphasis on treating symptoms rather than finding the cause of these illness.
Ever more toxic methods of suppressing symptoms, while hiding adverse effects, are researched and pushed on conventional medicine's victims.
Two of the most critical functions in health are drastically compromised in enormous numbers of today's children.The ability to metabolize food and the ability to breathe are being stolen from this generation. Yet the treatment they're receiving for this poor health does nothing to make them well. It only masks the symptoms and makes theirchildren even sicker!
