Question posed by Darcee: Can antibiotics cause breast cancer when used long term?
I’ve read that there is a connection between the use of antibiotics and breast cancer.

No 1 answer:

Answer by Henry W
antibiotics have no carcinogens (chemical that can cause gene mutation and cancer) so its not possible they can cause cancer in themselves. however prolonged use can cause your immune system to become too used to having antibiotics do the work and so become weak meaning your body is less able to combat free radicals in the body and viruses that can cause cancer.

my advice: use antibiotics if you need too and use them for the duration of the course. but don’t take them if you don’t need to. consult your doctor and ask him about this.
