Antibiotics as a Cause of Obesity

What do we know about this word — antibiotic? Everyone probably has an Association with the disease, sometimes very severe, where you had to drink medicines, called antibiotics. But is it?

It’s right to call a spade a spade

Antibiotic-a substance of microbial, animal or plant origin, capable of inhibiting the growth of certain microorganisms or cause their death, the growth of living cells, most often prokaryotic or protozoa.

Fully synthetic drugs that have no natural analogues and have a similar to antibiotics overwhelming effect on the growth of bacteria, has traditionally been called not antibiotics, and antibacterial chemotherapy. In particular, when only sulfanilamides were known from antibacterial chemotherapy drugs, it was customary to talk about the entire class of antibacterial drugs as “antibiotics and sulfanilamides”.

Anti-bacterial, that’s what you need to call drugs, which are now so fashionable to treat people. Antibiotics have nothing to do with this. It’s just better, more profitable and easier. For whom? Yes, all for the same medical mafia, which does not treat, but mutilates and and for a very large amount of money. You probably no modern doctor will not say that after taking “antibiotics” 8th generation your immune system will not recover ever. I am sure that there are already “antibiotics” and more advanced.

However, in recent decades, in connection with the invention of many very strong antibacterial chemotherapeutic agents, particularly fluoroquinolones, approaching or exceeding the activity of traditional antibiotics, the term “Antibiotic” has become blurred and expanded and are now often used not only in relation to natural and semi-synthetic compounds, but also to many strong antibacterial chemotherapy.

It is not always possible to stop the reproduction of bacteria or kill them all. The strongest can survive and continue to spread. A person can get sick again. In this case, it becomes more difficult to kill the pathogens.

The more often you take an antibiotic, the more likely it is to stop acting on the bacteria. Because of this, some diseases become difficult to control. The treatment takes more time, and we have to go to the doctor more often. And you may have to take stronger drugs. Qwestion: Who benefits?

The two main causative agents of infections are bacteria and viruses. Because of them, diseases occur most often. Anti-biotics kill bacteria, but do not act on viruses. Viruses are the cause of all diseases. Not with those fight goes. Moreover, these same drugs directly affect the weight of your body, and not for the better. You, just taking antibiotics-gaining weight in the form of body fat. And then wonder. From where does this come from, if I constantly eat low-calorie food and do sports. Few people know that antibiotics affect obesity, but it is a fact.

The widespread use of antibiotics in medicine has led to the formation of resistant strains of pathogens. According to the world health organization, in 2011, 25 thousand people died in Europe as a result of infections that can not be treated with modern antibiotics. But this is not the only danger associated with antibiotics.

Taking antibiotics in childhood causes obesity. Antibiotics help to feed pigs or chickens, they also contribute to the appearance of excess fat in children. So popular and widely used “drugs” can be to blame in the spread of epidemic child obesity.

Today, in many prosperous countries around the world, about 30% of children aged 10 to 11 years and more than 20% of children aged 4-5 years are overweight or obese. This may lead to the current generation of children going out of life even earlier than their more slender parents, as obesity reduces life by 15-20 years.

In children, taking antibiotics, significantly changing metabolism and increases the amount of fat tissue. About the immune system you can forget. It is not needed as the element is turned off.

In America, it has been known for more than 50 years that taking small doses of antibiotics increases body weight in farm animals by up to 15%. And now the experiment in the United States showed that rats receiving such doses at an early age, added weight 10-15%.

The use of antibiotics affects bacterial populations and alters the metabolism of certain nutrients. It is proved from different kinds of medical journals and books. Medical records of 11532 British children for the period from birth to 23 months showed that those who were under 5 months of age were given antibiotics, then weight exceeded the norm.

In the years 1941-1945 military doctors have successfully used antibioticstreptomycin to treat wounded soldiers. Immediately after the war, the drug interested representatives of the agricultural industry. Streptomycin not only prevented the deaths of chickens from common diseases, but also twice accelerated their growth. Soon, the use of antibiotics in poultry and animal cultivation became typical in many countries of the world. Consequently, the war is still going on. Against whom?

If antibiotics make animals fatter, what happens to people? In the gut of every human being dwells a community of beneficial bacteria with a total weight of 2 kg. Scientists have discovered the relationship between the microflora and development of obesity and diabetes of the second type. Changes in the microbial community of the intestine affect the processing of carbohydrates and fats by our body.

Violations of intestinal microflora occur not only because of the treatment with antibiotics. Preparations accumulate in the meat of animals and birds, which we eat. For example, milk and meat in developed countries may contain up to 100 micrograms per kilogram of tetracycline, a broad – spectrum antibiotic.

This means that a person who drinks two glasses of milk a day, uses about 50 micrograms of tetracycline daily. It’s a little, but it is necessary to take into account that many people drink milk every day throughout life. I am sure that the growth of obesity is associated with the chronic effect of antibiotics on our body. I think the increase in caloric intake can not fully explain this trend.

Modern scientists believe that in some cases, the feasibility of antibiotic treatment may be revised in the direction of abstinence from prescribing these drugs. Moreover, the side effects of antibiotics are not limited to one obesity, and lead to many other disorders of the body. Unfortunately, such scientists are few.
