It isn't so much us you have to worry about. It is the bacteria. Prolonged over use or unnecessary use of antibiotics leads to resistant bacteria, aka superbugs. MRSA is one. You know, flesh eating bacteria, that sort of thing. No cure because the bacteria has evolved to be immune to the antibiotics we would normally use to fight it.
