Most of this antibiotic resistance is caused by feeding livestock antibiotics non stop to make them grow quicker thus exposing bacteria constantly to antibiotics and giving them a chance to adapt to the antibiotics, thus making them resistant. You always hear about over prescription of meds and how people are prescribed antibiotics even when they don't need them. While this is true and a problem, the major cause is livestock. Your talking about billions of animals being given an antibiotic non stop for years. Only a matter of time before resistant strains of bacteria evolve and adapt to the environment. Antibiotics truly are a magic bullet that we basically discovered by accident. Bubonic plague killed half of Europe. You can't begin to imagine how many lives have been saved by antibiotics. It truly is one of the few miracle drugs and unfortunately we are working steadfastly to help make them ineffective by over prescribing them to people and using them in livestock operations. Their use in livestock should be banned immediately. I'm not talking animal rights here. It's about people.

For the best couple of weeks the water has been the worst I have seen it. Two weeks ago, the white water in deal was brown. Surfed Friday night in LB and Sat morning in Asbury and now have the worst sinus infection. I have been spitting blood from my sinuses for the past week. Stuff is gnarley.
Fished all day Sunday from the Hook to NYC, the river was filled with trash and what looked like red tide. I havent seen the water this dirty in years.

I agree that the water has been pretty dirty. Gosh, I remember the time I had a real bad ear infection because of something that had been in the water. I had this purple goo come out of my ear. Anyway, aside from neti pots, are there any nutritional supplements out there that build up a high immune system against all this crap in the water? Im a big fan of natural organic but for some reason I'm that into ayuverdic stuff.

I feel like dog **** too. Started in my ears, now it's my sinuses and throat. Really really tired too. I thought it was from going to the casino and being around a lot of people. But it definitely started with the surf.
The whole situation is extremely disturbing. Any thoughts on doing something about it?

Use Sinu-cleanse. It works great.
