Are you guilty of overkill?

Experts warn that if we don't stop overusing antibiotics and antibacterial products now , we will shoulder the blame for creating a warrior class of drug-resistant supergerms that will threaten not only our children but their children and beyond. Hard evidence exists that the crisis has already begun. But understanding the long-term effects of antibiotic abuse is one thing, and taking responsibility for our own health day after day, year after year, is another. Or is it?

In this timely and thought-provoking reference, Dr. Kimberly M. Thompson tells you exactly what you need to do to protect and promote your family's good health without endangering their future. Because, let's face it--there is no real comfort in winning the battle against germs if we are destined to lose the war.
