Watch out, Saliva Animals Containing Antibiotics Bacteria Immune

Expressing affection on pets can be done in many ways, such as stroking, tickling, kissing up. But especially for the kiss, you should think twice before doing so.

A new study from New Zealand found that the saliva of animals may be as a means of transmission of infections that are resistant to antibiotics in humans. The study, led by Professor Nigel French from Massey University analyzes the irrational use of antibiotics in animals is the cause.

Massey said, exposure to saliva of animals as a means of transmission of bacterial infections have been identified by the WHO as a major health problem and is growing. He emphasized the need for attention to the increase in the incidence of two types of antibiotic-resistant bacteria that commonly cause urinary tract infections.

These antibiotic-resistant infections found in almost all pets are spread through fluids and dirt. Animals such as dogs or cats to clean themselves by licking, that's why their saliva might be met also by the antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

3 Types of Fish It's Dangerous to Health

 Famous fish with healthy fats such as omega-3. However, some of these fish more precisely the content is not healthy.

Because a delicacy, some types of fish are overfished, endangered thereby disrupting the marine ecosystem that will be bad for life.

Although famous for its delicious taste, but the sea conditions are increasingly polluted, making this fish can actually be bad for your health.
  • Meat and shark fin
Besides threatened with extinction due to overfishing of the fishermen, the marine ecosystem also be disrupted due to the lack of top predators such as sharks, shark meat is not considered more healthy to eat.

According to CNN reports since 20 years ago, the level of mercury in shark can cause loss of coordination, blindness, and even death. Moreover, the level of mercury in shark meat rated increasing lately.

Scientists think it happens because sharks can accumulate mercury in their bodies through the small fish are eaten.

"What we found is that one-third of the 124 shark studied had very high mercury levels exceed the normal limits recommended the Food and Drug Administration," said Robert Hueter, director of Mote Marine Laboratory's Center for Shark Research.

Why Antibiotics Should Be Limited

Prior to 1928, the year in which penicillin was first discovered, small open sores on the skin can be fatal. If antibiotics are never found, perform the operation as is commonly practiced in modern medicine can not be done.

Antibiotics are the medical field discovery invaluable to fight infection. On the other hand, this wonder drug is also responsible for the ability to manipulate the natural bacteria in the body.

Irrational use of antibiotics should be stopped. There are at least three reasons why the use of antibiotics should be started is limited.

  • Changing the ability to fight infection
Natural human microbiota, or group of microorganisms that live in our bodies, help stabilize the immune system. The bacteria block the pathogenic microbes and give a signal to the immune system to fight infection.

Consumption of antibiotics can reduce the population of these beneficial bacteria. The decline in the number of natural human microbiota can begin in infancy when doctors prescribe antibiotics.

Decreasing the amount of good bacteria in the critical period of development of the immune system causing downside risks. For example, infants at risk of developing allergies and weight disorders.

  • Trigger antibiotic resistance
Super bacteria or bacteria that are not working anymore on antibiotics, is a major health problem. If not addressed, within a period of 25 years will find a lot of deaths from diseases that could be treated.
