Overconsumption of medicine also left its mark on the planet. Antibiotics, which are now prescribed for minor ailments, make their way to water reservoirs after they are digested by us. They also leak into the soil when disposed unused, from which get to underground water.
The most noticeable effect of our over-medicated lifestyle is the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which cause many incurable diseases. Before you buy any medicine or take a prescribed antibiotic, consider alternative treatment.
Always think whether your condition is so advanced, that without antibiotics you won’t recover? Not only they devastate our planet, but your organism as well, reducing your resistance and causing long-term negative health consequences.
