I wrote the following post about fluoroquinolone toxicity for Fearless Parent:

ARE DANGEROUS ANTIBIOTICS CAUSING CHRONIC ILLNESS?

Please check it out and share it.  Thank you!

Fearless Parent is a great organization with lots of interesting articles on their web site, and many interesting podcasts.

I was interviewed on the Fearless Parent Podcast a few weeks ago.  You can get more information about the podcast, and listen to it, HERE.

For those who are parents, or who want to spread the word about the dangers of fluoroquinolones to parents, this post on Hormones Matter is a good one to share too – DON’T LET YOUR BABIES GROW UP TO BE FLOXIES.

Thank you for spreading the word about the dangers of fluoroquinolones!  I HATE that children are getting floxed.  HATE IT.  Perhaps, with awareness, we can keep some kids safe.

    An increase in the prescribing of the Fluoroquinolone antibiotics, as well as all antibiotics, is as a result of the aggressive and corrupt multimillion dollar marketing practices of the drug companies. In this clip from a late night social commentary television talk show, host John Oliver discusses (in a comedic although informative way) the real statistics behind the marketing of drugs to our doctors.

    The statistics are staggering, in that our physicians are being paid tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to write prescriptions of one or another drugs that are being marketed to them by drug reps. Financial incentives are provided as well in the form of meals for office staff, bogus ‘speaking engagement’ fees, etc.

    The show also provides the government website that now tracks these payments from drug companies to our doctors. All you have to do is enter your doctors name and the state in which he/she practices, and the amount of money accepted and from which drug company, will pop up in an itemized format. I was shocked to learn how much money my doctor receives from pharmaceutical companies to ‘push’ these drugs:

    The government website to check your if doctors pockets are being lined by the pharmaceutical companies: (its easy to do a search)
