Many people think antibiotics are harmless, but side effects and allergies to Nike Shoes Orange And Purple the medications are actually one of the most common reasons people go to the emergency room, she said.
"When people think about antibiotic resistance, they think it's their body being resistant," Hicks said. "They don't realize that the actual number of microbes or bacterial cells in the body outnumber the human [cells]."
"The database is like a [national] census of antibiotic use," and the information was obtained from all pharmacies and drug makers nationwide, Hicks said.

The researchers also found that there are higher rates of obesity and smoking in areas where there is more antibiotic use.
"There are infections out there that have become almost impossible to treat," Hicks said. "We really are on the verge of going down a path where there may be nothing that works. Now we're seeing young, healthy people getting these highly resistant infections requiring hospitalization where in the past a simple oral antibiotic would have taken care of it."
