Antibiotics or antibacterials can cure what ails us, so what's the big controversy? One of the most compelling reasons for controversy is that bacteria adapt to this medication and come back even stronger. Another reason is that our bodies have good bacteria, which antibiotics can kill, causing problems in areas that we're not even trying to treat. Give your readers a fascinating look into the controversies of antibiotics. Essays are arranged in a pro versus con sequence, so that readers can benefit from more than one intelligent viewpoint per topic. Across four chapters, readers will evaluate the issues that arise with use, whether it should be used in agriculture, how they should be used across different diseases, and what the dangers of use really are. Superb essay sources include the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Humane Society of the United States, Pew Charitable Trusts, Ohio Pork Producers Council, and the National Cancer Institute.
