Pfizer's World Antibiotic Awareness Week Press Con

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Did you know that antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is an increasingly serious health threat globally? It is predicted that AMR will kill more people than cancer by 2050.

In line with the celebration of World Antibiotic Awareness Week, Pfizer invited us to a press conference last November 7, Wednesday, from 10 AM–1 PM at the New World Makati Hotel.

Here, their guest doctors outlined alarming stories that cause Anti Microbial Resistance. Possible caises is when you do not follow the exact prescription, or when you stop taking medicine when you start feeling well, worst is when you let others botrow your prescription, which is totally wrong as we all have unique characteristics.

  1. Informing citizens about treatment and new medicines is a good goal. However, the current fascination with antibiotics can lead to addiction to such components. I vote for maximum herbalism, CHECK THESE GUYS OUT. CBD oil is a new remedy based on cannabis. It has analgesic and anti-inflammatory functions. I use CBD for home treatment and it helps a lot.
