Summer fun security tips

TORONTO (JULY, 2015) – As summer approaches and people begin to make use of their cottages and boats, it’s important to keep safety and security in mind while enjoying the warmer weather.

If you’re packing up for a weekend trip to the cottage, there are several things to remember when it comes to keeping your seasonal home safe throughout the summer and into the fall.

“With summer homes and cottages only being occupied a few months out of the year, they are much more vulnerable to break-ins than a typical home,” said Steve Kolobaric, Marketing Manager, Weiser. “Taking a few proactive steps can be the difference between your cottage being at risk or being passed by.”

Antibiotics: Not As Safe As You Think

Antibiotics - Copyright – Stock Photo / Register Mark
Antibiotics have been credited with saving thousands of lives, these days antibiotics are also in the news for not being as effective. According to the Centers for Disease Control, up to two million Americans fall ill from antibiotic-resistant bacteria every year and that at least 23,000 die from those infections. 

Why is this so significant? It happens to be the first time that federal authorities have quantified the effects of organisms that many antibiotics are powerless to fight.

This is something serious to think about. 

In 2007, the C.D.C. estimated that about 100,000 people died every year of infections they developed while in hospitals. Most of those infections were believed to be resistant to some antibiotics, but not necessarily the most widely used ones. And it was unclear how many of the deaths were caused by the drug-resistant infections until now. The report also said that about half of antibiotic use in people is inappropriate.

So what can you do to protect yourself?

Make sure to talk to your doctor about the risks involved in taking an antibiotic and make sure to be aware of natural ways to fight off certain infections. Many things such as the common cold can be fought off without antibiotics. Be aware of what you are putting in your body.
