I’m going to talk about something completely different than the usual obesity, insulin and type 2 diabetes stuff – antibiotics. This is another area where current medical teaching is completely logic-free.
In many ways it reminds me of the entire “Type 2 diabetic patients have too much insulin. So, let’s give them more insulin and see if it helps” argument. Logically it makes no sense. So, instead the medical establishment adopts an “I’m the expert so don’t bother trying to talk sense into me. Just do what I say” attitude.
