Missing Microbes: How the Overuse of Antibiotics Is Fueling Our Modern Plagues

3.5 rating

In 100 Words or Less: Antibiotics are a modern, medical miracle; they have saved millions of lives. But for many, they also mean life-changing but poorly understood side effects. The potential risks are greatest during early childhood, yet the average American receives seventeen courses before they are twenty years old. This book is both fascinating and terrifying, but it's important to know that research in this emerging field has only just begun.
