A situation where most treatments are no longer effective

Jan 31st 2014 at 8:46 PM

The past repeats itself

As antibiotics lose their effectiveness, a known situation returns. Test-Chats warns: "Certain surgeries and illnesses that previously were not dangerous, risky, and now again we have ever stronger drugs needed to fight infections that it is a vicious circle.".

Even Professor Dewily admits the risk we run. "If the resistance continues to rise, we are within twenty to thirty years in a situation where most treatments are no longer effective, what we call a very innocent bronchitis now -. Where you stay home for two days and antibiotics increases - will turn a life threatening condition be as was the case a hundred years ago. When there were no antibiotics, and people were dying of such simple infections. "

A "solution" to the problem

So we have to use. Fewer antibiotics "Our country is one of the largest users of antibiotics in Europe," explains Test-Chats. "We have an intensive meat production in which one wants to render optimal animals All the animals preventative treatment against diseases, so even when it is not needed, it would already be an improvement, we had our animals only when needed -. In disease. - administering antibiotics. "

Professor Dewily refutes that claim. "We try to use in veterinary medicine, fewer antibiotics because there is definitely a lot of the cause. But most of the resistance problems we find with the use of antibiotics in humans., And less antibiotic use is a measure in a broader fits context.
