I don't see any homeopathy on that chart, but then again I wouldn't know what to look for.

Also, I'm a bit surprised by vitamin C being below the 'worth it' line. I'll look into that...

I wasn't very specific. Penicillin is a 'wonder drug', a broad-spectrum antibiotic and can be used quite a few times in each patient. The problem I refer to is mostly amongst people like me who are allergic to penicillin.

Here's an article about antibiotic's becoming less effective.

Further research on Google should give you the full picture.

Why is cannabis not on this? It definitely gets googled and has a long list of different conditions/illness/ailments that it helps. Vitamin THC fools. Peace

"Also, there are only 4 or 5 types, and once you've used one of them up, that one will never do you any good ever again. This is why when your doctor suggests antibiotics, you should query him that they are absolutely necessary, since you could be using up one of your "chances" that you might wish later on you still had."

I'd like to know where you heard that. just because you use an antibiotic doesn't mean it won't work for you again. I've been on penicillin 3 times now, and its worked every time.

Now, what would make an antibiotic NOT work, is if you took a few pills, then stopped. then the bacteria grows resistant, resulting in an immunity to that certain type of bacteria, thus, requiring the use of another antibiotic.

Why are people so confused by this graph? It pegs the treatments with the most evidence supporting their claims at the top. The farther down you go, the less evidence there for each treatment. The bigger bubbles represent higher search frequencies on Google.

This is a really useful graph, that is, if it's in any way trustworthy.

> Why are antibiotics below the "worth it" line?

Because they are non-specific (ie they don't specifically fix a particular problem, they just work everywhere at once) so they aren't consistently reliable for treatment.

Also, there are only 4 or 5 types, and once you've used one of them up, that one will never do you any good ever again. This is why when your doctor suggests antibiotics, you should query him that they are absolutely necessary, since you could be using up one of your "chances" that you might wish later on you still had.

Keep in mind folks, this infographic pertains to when the vitamins are taken orally by a person with a healthy diet. It's not saying Vitamin C's not worth it, it's just that a person with a healthy diet already gets enough of the vitamin that they don't need to take it orally.

Oh, correction on the last post, it was referring to a specific antibiotic that hasn't been proven, called pau d'arco.

Why are antibiotics below the "worth it" line? Antibiotics do work. If you ever get an infection on the outside of your skin, take a Penicillin, the infection will clear in about 15 minutes.

"but green tea in the other info-graphic we saw says it increases your life span..."

There's nothing conflicting about it... things at the top have been 'proven' to work. After you dip below the "Worth it" line things stop doing what people think they do

Remember Bubbles from Finding Nemo? "Bubbles! Bubbles! Bubublelebubbles! My bubbles."

That's about all I got from this infographic.
