Urgent: Seniors TRICKED Into Taking More Meds!?
At this point, I know that you know not to mess around with unnecessary antibiotics.
Over the past few years, you’ve probably heard more than enough about drug-resistant superbugs – germs that DON’T RESPOND to mainstream meds – and how over-prescribed antibiotics have led to their development.
Heck, I know I’ve spouted off about the dangers of these nasty drugs more than a time or two… reminding you that many docs STILL haven’t gotten the message on rolling back those Rxs…
But new research reveals that your awareness DOESN’T MATTER.
No matter HOW GOOD you are at turning down your doc’s antibiotics, another sneaky source is still FEEDING YOU these superbug-spreading meds…
And you’re probably taking them without a second thought.
In a new study, published in JAMA Network Open in May, Chicago researchers used a database called Truven to analyze dental visit records from 2011 to 2015, focusing on the relationship between pre-procedure antibiotics and heart risk.
See, national guidelines recommend that dentists only prescribe pre-procedure antibiotics to high-risk cardiac patients – NOT everyone or anyone undergoing a dental operation.
But unfortunately, the study revealed that those rules AREN’T FOLLOWED!
Accorder to the researchers’ report, an unbelievable 81 PERCENT of the 168,420 antibiotic prescriptions dispensed went to OTHER PATIENTS.
That means that 81 percent of prescriptions (more than 136,000 of them) went to patients who DIDN’T NEED THEM!

This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
Are we literally FEEDING cancer cells by putting this one food on our dinner plates?
This is important. THIS one food could be growing cancer cells.
And here’s where it gets interesting… as soon as we STOP eating it, the opposite happens: cancer cells STARVE to death — and die out by the thousands.
Skeptical? See the evidence here.
So, they were completely unnecessary…
And that’s nothing to brush off.
Dental care-related antibiotics account for about 10 percent of all antibiotic prescriptions… i.e. 10 percent of the superbug problem we currently face!
I’ll let corresponding author Katie Suda, an associate professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, tell you more…
“Use of preventive antibiotics in these patients opens them up to the risks associated with antibiotic use — increasing bacterial resistance and infections, for example — when the evidence used to develop the guidelines suggests that the risks outweigh the benefits in most patients,” she says.
Getting into the study’s specifics, researchers found that unnecessary prescribing was most prevalent in the Western U.S. and urban areas – so if either of those includes you, be sure to keep your guard even higher.
Bottom line: Don’t assume that docs are the only ones to blame for the spread of deadly superbugs – and don’t treat your dentist any differently than you would a mainstream physician.
If either one suggests an antibiotic regimen, speak up.
Ask questions and confirm that those drugs are ABSOLUTELY necessary… and if they’re not, just say no.
