Been reading about antibiotic resistance. A bunch of non-antibiotic pills may be encouraging the swapping of genetic material between bacteria. I suppose if the rate of swapping is accelerated then it's sending resistance into overdrive. Fascinating.
Additionally, these non-antibiotic pharmaceuticals caused the bacteria to have responses similar to those detected when exposed to antibiotics, such as inducing the SOS response, and enhancing efflux pumps. The findings advance our understanding of the bacterial transfer of antibiotic resistance genes, and importantly emphasize concerns of non-antibiotic human-targeted pharmaceuticals for enhancing the spread of antibiotic resistance.

I still can't understand why doctors restrict access to antibiotics when animals are fed it everyday.

It's ridiculous. When they restrict prescribing them, the infection gets worse then I require two courses... !rolleyes ... plus days off work
