This is the 3rd time in 3 years that I’ve seen this warning coming from Dame Sally Davies, the UK’s Chief Medical Officer. It makes for an interesting study on how unaffected people are by this.

Likewise, in 2014, the World Health Organization (WHO) stated that “the world is in grave danger of entering a post-antibiotic era.”

In 2013, “Dr. Arjun Srinivasan of the CDC (U.S. Center for Disease Control) warned that the antibiotic era had already ended.”

Another article predicts 10 million deaths per year from antibiotic resistant microbes beginning in 2050.

In 1997 a U.S. House subcommittee pretty much issued the same warnings. Year after year, the warnings come and nothing changes. Antibiotic prescriptions continue to rise and the death toll from antibiotic resistance continues to increase yearly toward the 10 million a year mark.

The business of medicine goes on as usual and people continue to line up and accept whatever their grossly undertrained doctors prescribe for them.

I’ve written about this so many times that it gets boring to rehash it so often, but it needs to be written about. Somewhere along the way, people will begin to to wake up as they watch loved ones close to them die from this.

Antibiotics are deadly drugs and create more harm than good in the hands of the medical profession, yet people accept them without question.

Marketers always look for the ‘pain point’, the unbearable reality, to convey the benefits of going a new way, or the harm in continuing to do things they way they are currently being done. The pain point here is 10 million deaths a year and the end of a doctor being able to help the majority of the patients they see.

People on the other hand, medicate this particular pain point away by telling themselves that their doctors would tell them if it was true. They believe that their doctors know better. That enables them to avoid the fear and anxiety about dealing with these issues themselves.

There’s an old saying that authority calms fear and anxiety. We fool ourselves when we believe that medical doctors are an authority on health, but it allows us to avoid being an authority on our own health. We put off taking care of ourselves on a daily basis, because we’ve grown up believing that a quick doctor’s visit or pill will solve our problems, and life will go on.

In truth, life will go on, but it might be without us, or loved ones we cherish. We shouldn’t be so quick to medicate these pain points away. Decades of doing so has already set a very large ball in motion for many people. At some point, the dominoes will begin to fall. The warnings are there. The signal fires have been lit.

Act now to create a better way. Assume the responsibility that is yours and yours alone. It’s always been your responsibility and never anyone else’s.

In the end, the doctors will blame the patients for all of the deaths, saying that for this reason or that, the patients are to blame. This is their practice already. We are to blame if we listen to them. More and more people are turning away and seeking better advice and sound choices.

For those who don’t, there’s always another pill.
