Donít Take that Antibiotic! You Might Get ... Fat?
Norman Moore, PhD, Director, Scientific Affairs for Infectious Diseases, Alere

 

Even though the global threat of antibiotic resistant microorganisms is significant, many patients demand antibiotics and doctors are far too willing to provide them. This talk shows that the relationship between us and our bacteria is more important than previously thought. Disrupting that balance can cause a host of issues.
