The antibiotics do not harm other normal body cells, It is possible to treat the diseases by the antibiotics which were fatal prior to the development of antibiotics, The prescribed antibodies can harm the disease-causing the microorganisms but the antibiotics have been developed to attack the human cells for the treatment of cancer.

Macrolide antibiotics are strongly germ-killing medicines, They have been regarded among the best-tolerated antibiotics for almost 50 years, They have broad antibacterial spectrum, They are simple to use which have convenient dosing regimens and they are used daily or twice dosing regimen.

The heavy indiscriminate use of the antibiotics in the poultry (the meat , the dairy products) production can transfer the residual antibiotics to the human food and they can transfer the resistant bacteria to the humans.

If the antibiotic is used long enough, The bacteria will mutate to withstand the antibiotic, This is known as the antibiotic resistance, Many infections cases are caused by the bacteria resistant to some antibiotics, The antibiotic-resistant bacteria creates life-threatening infections danger that don’t respond to the antibiotics.
