Natural Antibiotics: More Effective than Pharmaceutical Antibiotics

Antibiotics were introduced about two decades ago to fight bacteria. It turned out that the bacteria evolved during the same period and have become resistant to most of the antibiotics. It means that in some cases, more than double the amount of antibiotics is needed to fight a bacterial infection.
