In a biology class in 1953 we were told what the consequences of urestricted use of antibiotics would be. Apparently no one listened. As recently as 2001 I was advised by my boss when I had a cold, to go to the doctor and get an antibiotic shot. In forty-eight years we learned nothing.

I am in agreement with many of you. Antibiotics are incorrectly used through mass productions of food such as livestock, fish etc. Examine for yourself why they are used. Just for thought. Perhaps in our consumption of food (s) that has been given antibiotics, and our air and water flowing with pollutants that has caused our infections to begin with as well as our resistant to treatment. (My fact: the reduction/permanent removal of GMO foods & Clean H2O We look & feel better. Immune system better along with a healthier life). Clean Air?

Why can't we try using vitamins and minerals the old fashion way? Things that naturally help your body heal.

The dominoes line up perfectly. Food, energy, drugs, water. When collapse comes (not if), it will be perfect as if by design. To top it all kids being educated with Laptops and ipads. Mega useful for the future that is heading our way like a 1000 foot tsunami. How many blacksmiths do you know?
