Writing Exercise #6

My mom has always warned me about using antibiotics and their possible dangers of them. This being said, my mom’s concerns weren’t from her scientific knowledge, but instead, they are from her assumptions about Western Medicine. My parents are Vietnamese immigrants so my mom grew up learning about natural remedies and was warned about antibiotics and other pharmaceuticals. Learning about antibiotics and the biological dangers of them expanded my knowledge and aided my personal opinions on taking antibiotics. I would take antibiotics if they were prescribed to me and I would take them exactly as indicated. I have only had to taken them a few times in my life and I have never strayed from the instructions that my doctors have given me in fear of resistance or messing up the process.
