Nearly a third of antibiotics in the US are over-prescribed, according to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That amounts to about 47 million patients receiving the wrong treatment for colds, sore throats, bronchitis, and flu. The study published on Tuesday analyzed the use of antibiotics in doctors’ offices and emergency departments throughout the US in 2010 and 2011. The CDC found that 13 percent of all outpatient doctor visits, some 154 million a year, resulted in an antibiotic being prescribed, 47 million of which were unnecessary because they were prescribed for conditions caused by viruses, which do not respond to antibiotics. “Antibiotics are lifesaving drugs, and if we continue down the road of inappropriate use we’ll lose the most powerful tool we have to fight life-threatening infections,” said CDC Director Tom Frieden in a statement released on Tuesday. “Losing these antibiotics would undermine our ability to treat patients with deadly infections, cancer, provide organ transplants, and save victims of burns and trauma.” Wow our doctors in America have a hidden legal drug cartel hidden under their scrubs. No wonder some paitents have to go back on multiple visits, probably due to being over drugged which just makes patients with ailments worse off. Or are they over prescribing to take part in some form of illegal drug trade like the meth epidemic? All this should go to show Americans, is that the hospital system in America has been nothing more then drug turf for the FDA. Americans as a whole close to 50 percent of us, are all under some form of doctor prescribed medication. In other nations around the world it has been proven that being on doctor drugs, just simply don't work and just make people worse. America has quite possibly the worse healthcare system in the world, for when treatment fails drug people and make a profit off it.
