How damaging can antibiotics be? Our healthy and fit Pano reporter Peter Brems did the test and took a full course. He was not alone. Belgians lead the pack when it comes to taking powerful medicines.  The famous US microbiologist and antibiotics expert Martin Blaser warns: “The long-term impact is becoming clear: asthma, obesity, diabetes and food allergies are on the rise”.

Can the damage to our reporter’s intestines caused by strong antibiotics be repaired? We created a unique, medical experiment.
