In USA, out of 500000 of patients with this infection 29000 have met death. High dietary Zinc amount causes the changes of the normal flora inside the intestines and prepare the intestines as an optimal space for Clostridium difficile. People with long time antibiotic use also have a higher risk to have the infection than the individuals with no long antibiotic treatments. Prevention is better than cure. So why do we face a risk with having much Zinc in our meals!
