"It has been highlighted that the use of antibiotics is the single most important factor leading to antibiotic resistance around the world".

- In the United States, at least 2 million people become infected with antibiotic-resistant bacteria every year, of which at least 23,000 people die, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.

"Students at BYU-Idaho are partly involved in solving this antibiotic crisis by searching for new antibiotics in the soil around campus", Kelson said. This not only ensures you and your family get the best treatment, responsible use of antibiotics will also help reduce the threat of antibiotic resistance.

"Too often we see patients in the dental chair who have been treated inappropriately with antibiotics for a dental condition which should and could have been treated effectively by a dentist-sometimes without the need for antibiotics".
