    Scientists have found a link between the use of oral antibiotics and the risk of Parkinson's disease. They suggest that the connection could be due to the drugs' impact on gut microbes.

    The strongest links were for macrolides and lincosamides. Doctors prescribe oral dosages of these common antibiotics to fight a range of microbial infections.

    Yet another example of how drugs can alter gut microbes and result in long term harm. This also demonstrates that drugs, even antibiotics, have side effects, whether immediate or years later.
