Wouldn't that be good for the economy for all those people to be on long term antibiotics? Or are the recommended antibiotics now generic, and not helpful to big pharma anymore?

Is the medical community worried about super bugs becoming more common if a lot of people go on long term antibiotic therapy?21`

It really seems like a conspiracy to me but I'd like to know the possible motivations.

A lot made sense to me after reading "Cure Unknown" by Pam Weintraub - she discusses it in a very sane way that makes sense.

....more profitable to push anti-depressants which are often used forever, than a year or so worth of usually cheap(except for mepron)anti-infectives.

the 'societal implications' of antibiotic overuse have nothing whatever to do with it...it's just a ploy to emotionalize the argument.

follow the money

Insurance companies are afraid they would go broke.

IDSA would have mud on their faces.

FDA can't keep up with progress as it is.

CDC will have to hire more people to process stats. on all the people truly sick.

Not mainstream thinking, just my own thoughts. The biggest excuse I see is the worry of antibiotic resistant bacteria.
