Eating This Feeds Bacteria That Can Poke Holes Through Your Gut

Story at-a-glance
~
Azithromycin (Zithromax) is a macrolide antibiotic used in the treatment of bronchitis, pneumonia, ear infections, and sexually transmitted diseases. It’s known for having unpleasant side effects such as skin rashes, itching, allergic or anaphylactic reactions, and severe, watery diarrhea.
~
But it’s also associated with more severe side effects, such as myopathy―muscle and tendon pain, weakness and cramping―when taken in combination with statins. And previous research has shown that use of any type of antibiotic increases the risk of breast cancer in women.
~
~ Recent research found that the macrolide antibiotic Azithromycin increases your chances of dying from a cardiovascular event by 250 percent within the first five days of usage, compared to taking amoxicillin. Those who already have heart problems are at an even greater risk of dying from the drug, which parallels Vioxx that had killed 60,000 people by the time it was removed from the market in 2004.
~
~ Antibiotics are indiscriminate bactericides, meaning they kill ALL bacteria, both good and bad, and many of the immediate and long-term side effects are related to this fact, as disrupting your gut flora has a detrimental effect on your overall immune system.
~
~ The greatest danger posed by antibiotics does not come from prescribed courses of antibiotics, but rather from the food you eat. The prevalence of antibiotics found in both conventionally-grown meats and vegetables has the potential to throw off, or contribute to intestinal imbalance and subsequent immune system dysfunction.
~
~ It’s estimated that the non-therapeutic use of antibiotics in livestock accounts for 70 percent of the total antibiotic use in the US, and when all agricultural uses are considered, the share could be as high as 84 percent.
~
~ On December 22, 2011, the US FDA posted a notice in the Federal Register that it was effectively reneging on its plan to reduce the use of antibiotics in agricultural animal feed. Instead, the agency issued voluntary guidelines in April of this year, suggesting that livestock should only be treated with antibiotics to cure illness, not to enable growth.
