Mike, I don't know quite how to reply to this, or even if I should, but
since I've had a very personal experience with antibiotic resistant
bacteria, I guess I'll give it a shot.
Resistant bacteria are not killed by the antibiotic they're resistant to,
even if you give them a large dose. I almost died from bilateral bacterial
pneumonia, because the bacteria were resistant to the antibiotics I was
given. I assure you I didn't stop taking the antibiotics. They simply
didn't work. The disease just kept running its course as though I hadn't
taken antibiotics at all. At the hospital they gave me different antibiotics
which still didn't work. Far as I could tell, I got well on my immune system
alone, although it certainly helped to have the oxygen and glucose IV's.
