Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria Found in Half of U.S. Meat Supply!

"Recent studies have shown antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria, such as MRSA, are in nearly half of the United State's meat supply."

"Dr. Guy Loneragan, an epidemiologist and professor of food safety and public health at Texas Tech University, is concerned with the well-being of humans and animals alike. He explained that people on all levels of the "production chain" are responsible for ensuring food safety."

"So what do we do? For starters, we should consider buying meat and dairy that's raised without the use of antibiotics as a preventive measure among livestock. The use of antibiotics, in most cases, is not a reasonable course of preventive medicine. As we can see, it seems to cause more harm than good."
