Medicine's negative effect on the immune system

Bio Research project: the negative effect modern medicine has had on the immune system throughout the recorded evolution of humans

General Background: When & How to take Antibiotics

The Alliance for the Prudent Use of Antibiotics (APUA) has been the leading global non-governmental organization fighting to preserve the effectiveness of antimicrobial drugs since 1981. With affiliated chapters in over 65 countries, we conduct research, education and advocacy programs to control antimicrobial resistance and ensure access to effective antibiotics for current and future generations.

There's a lot we don't know about our Paleolithic ancestors and their fitness. We can't exactly put them through a modern strength test or fitness routine. But we do know that thousands of years ago, those ancestors spread out across the globe, traversing deserts like the Sahara and freezing regions like Siberia, scaling mountain ranges like the Alps and Himalayas, and even crossing segments of the ocean to populate new lands. When you consider the physical feats those people accomplished, they put us all to shame.

Antibiotics & The Immune system

The constant use of antibiotics with humans and livestock is a leading factor in our growing inability to eradicate disease.
