UNITED NATIONS Air Max Mens Clearance , Nov. 20 (Xinhua) -- Using antibiotics correctly will help conserve an essential part of modern medicine, the World Health Organization (WHO) director-general's special representative for antimicrobial resistance said.
"A world without antibiotics would look very different to the world we live in now," said Keiji Fukuda in a recent interview with Xinhua. "We count on antibiotics for basically all of modern medicine, people get infected and we expect that they can treat it and get cured."
"Using (antibiotics) in the right way is the way that we conserve what we have."
Antibiotics are an important safety net which make surgery, and even giving birth, less dangerous Air Max Mens Sale , said Fukuda. Antibiotics are also important for people with chronic illnesses, such as cancer or diabetes, who are much more prone to infections, he added.
However, antibiotics are not effective against viruses, which means they should not be used to treat colds and flus Air Max Mens Shoes , he said.
This is just one of many misunderstandings about antibiotics which are contributing to antibiotic resistance, as shown in a recent WHO survey, which found that 61 percent of people surveyed in China think, incorrectly, that colds and flus can be treated by antibiotics .
"Antimicrobial resistance is something that really develops quite quickly when people don't use antibiotics in the right way," said Fukuda.
"So when large numbers of people are taking antibiotics either for reasons or diseases which are not going to get better with antibiotics -- or if they are taking them in the wrong way -- they are helping resistance develop more quickly."
The WHO survey also found that 53 percent of the respondents in China wrongly believed that they could stop taking antibiotics when they felt better Air Max Mens , rather than taking the full course as directed.
Taking the full course is another important way to prevent bacteria from becoming resistant to antibiotics, said Fukuda.
"When your doctor gives you an antibiotic and tells you how long to take it, he or she is giving it to you so that you have a chance of completely getting rid of the bacteria which are causing whichever illness you have," he said.
"When you stop taking the antibiotics sometimes the illness is not cured and those leftover bacteria become resistant and so that's one of the ways that you begin to increase antimicrobial resistance."
Fukuda said that many different sectors will have to work together to address antimicrobial resistance, including the health sector and the agriculture sector.
In some countries, if not in many Cheap Nike Air Max Mens , he said, more antibiotics are used in animals than in people. The antibiotics are often used to help animals grow and people who eat these animals are exposed to antibiotics often without knowing it. Animals can also develop bacteria which are resistant and can spread this resistance to people, he said.
Fukuda welcomed a new joint fund recently launched by China and Britain to address antibiotic resistance.
"It's really a very welcome development that China and the United Kingdom both recognize in order to deal with antibiotic resistance we are going to need resources," he said.
Nov. 16-22 is the first-ever World Antibiotic Awareness Week.

When Kirk Kenney, co-founder of folk band Mountain High, was a teenager Nike Air Max Mens White , China wasn't even a blip on his radar. He grew up in a sheltered suburb of St. Petersburg, Florida, spending most of his time watching television.
Last week, he played two packed shows at the National Center of the Performing Arts in Beijing, speaking to the crowd in fluent Chinese, and joyfully performed traditional music with some of the most talented folk musicians in China.
Kenney traces the story back to when he was just 16 years old and feeling bored with life.
"I had just been playing guitar for a year Nike Air Max Mens Online , and it was the first thing I ever cared about learning," said Kenney. There were a lot of things he wanted to see and understand, but none of them overlapped with what he was learning.
One day, he was driving around a lake listening to music with an old friend, who put on the soundtrack to Genghis Blues, a film about a blues musician who discovers the ancient art of Tuvan throat singing. What he heard blew him away.
"This subverted my sense of what music could be. This was someone using their body in a way no one around here does Nike Air Max Mens Outlet ," he said.
This particular style of singing works by compressing the throat, chest and stomach to create piercing, harmonic sounds similar to whistling.
Prior to that, he had listened obsessively to bands like The Who, Spike Jones and His Orchestra and Sublime, but this opened up a whole new world for him. In college Nike Air Max Mens Clearance , he discovered Chinese bands such as Xiao He, Hang on the Box and especially Wild Children, whose key members moved into the Chinese countryside to live with peasants and study their folk music.
"I was inspired by that story. It seemed like something I could do, because I was learning Chinese, and I liked the music of Asia," said Kenney. He liked the fact that Wild Children was collecting old folk tunes such as Alan Lomax and other key figures in the American folk revival.
Forging a career
To further his studies Nike Air Max Mens Sale , Kenney enrolled in Bennington College in Vermont, but struggled with the new freedom that the unconventional liberal arts school offered. He found that he could not shake off a feeling of cynicism and being adrift. In his third year, he went to the Green Mountain Institute in Portugal to study massage and integrative therapy. It was an experience that changed his life.
"I was thinking about how the body connects to emotions, and fear and moods." He realized that massage and music both change people's moods in the same way. "If mu.
