Prescribing antibiotics to children in the first years of their life…

Prof. Michael Borg’s warning against prescribing antibiotics to children

” There are already numerous factors contributing to asthma and obesity, such as genes and environment, which we have no control over. What we do have control over is antibiotic use so let’s do something about it.

We are becoming more and more aware of the importance that the microbiome – the trillions of ‘friendly’ bacteria in the human body – plays in the development of the body, especially in early ages.

It would appear that the more antibiotics are administered, especially to children, the greater the risk of disrupting these bacteria in the gut with potential repercussions.”

Warning against prescribing antibiotics to children, timesofmalta, March 7, 2016.

said Prof. Michael Borg, head of the National Antibiotic Committee in Malta.
