GOT A COLD OR SINUS INFECTION THAT WILL NOT GO AWAY? (TULSA)

GOT A COLD OR SINUS INFECTION THAT WILL NOT GO AWAY?

Approximately 150,000 adults are treated in emergency departments each year because of adverse events from antibiotics.

In 2009, more than 3 million kg of antibiotics were administered to human patients in the United States alone; in 2010, a staggering 13 million kg were administered to animals.

More than 23,000 men, women and children in the U.S. die every year from antibiotic-resistant infections while over 4,000 Americans perish from influenza.

Food production accounts for about 73% of all medically significant antibiotics sold in the United States. Drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to kill at least 23,000 people and sicken a total of 2,000,000 people each year in the United States 21 which results in $20 billion dollars in health costs.

Viruses are typically the cause of acute bronchitis, but despite this up to 80 percent of these patients will be prescribed antibiotics.
