Do Anti-Biotics and Pro-Biotics Argue?
Setting aside the fact I am not a doctor, not a scientist, and have an imagination that does not like to sit the hell down, I can’t be the first to realize co-mingling antibiotics and probiotics on the same shelf could lead to bedlam. What I’m saying is, it doesn’t take a genius to figure those who are for biotics are not fond of those who are against them.
According to The Oxford English Dictionary, Second Edition, Volume II: Biotic is an adjective meaning:
- Of or pertaining to (common) life, secular.
- Of animal life; vital.”
I’m on biotics’ side. I don’t know, something about it “pertaining to life” and the word “vital”woke me up. They are facing formidable challenges. Far tougher than I ever imagined. On a recent visit to my local drugstore, I saw things called (drum roll) triple antibiotics!
Here’s my question. What happens when you take both antibiotics and probiotics? Would there not be some kind of conflict set off inside your body when you ingest two things that clearly don’t like each other?
Skim Milk and Whole Milk have a standing truce. No Anti Milks and no Pro Milks. That said, Skim Milk stands next to Whole Milk on the supermarket’s shelves. Side by side they are. It must be hard on the Skims, standing next to a group of Wholes knowing they’re more milk than they’ll ever be. Don’t even get me started on how the 1% and 2% milks might be feeling about all of this.
