We live in strange times.
Bizarre times, indeed.
In America, over 50 million people have no access to medical care or life-saving antibiotics because they have no health insurance and can’t afford the outrageous, extortionist fees doctors and hospitals charge.
But in America the animals, particularly chicken, cows and bulls, are every day pumped up with antibiotics, far more than necessary.
In fact, animals get such alarming levels of antibiotics that the medical and scientific community has been raising concerns over fears that disease causing organisms will become immune to the antibiotic drugs. Presumably, due to humans’ indirect consumption of antibiotics via meat.
Is anybody listening? Hell, no.
A new study by the respected outfit Consumer Reports says 80% of all antibiotics sold in the U.S. is used by the meat and poultry industry to make animals grow faster or to prevent disease in crowded and unsanitary conditions.
