I heard this on the news this morning.
You know how we're not supposed to take too many antibiotics, because it results in drug-resistant bacteria?
And you know most meat animals are given antibiotics to keep them free of infection?
Well, now they've found that American meat has a lot of drug-resistant bacteria in it. And we're eating that meat! :|
I guess it's more important that ever to cook meat thoroughly. Or go vegan. (Because if drug-resistant bacteria is in the animals, it must get into their milk, too.)
I just wanted to throw this out there for your thoughts. It hasn't yet stopped me from eating meat, but it's scary. And why didn't anyone realize this would happen?
