RE: Super bug bacteria in meat and poultry, study says
I would like to know what kind of antibiotics make an animal grow faster. It was my understanding that antibiotics were used to treat infection or kill bacteria, not make animals grow faster as is indicated in the article. According to research, 20% of the human population are long-term carriers of S. aureau. I dislike this kind of biased reporting. While I don't dispute the study in question as I have not read it, I do dispute the spin of the author to make it seem as all strains are due to overuse of antibiotics caused by farming. The article makes no mention of handling of the meat and the cause of possible contamination of the meat while being processing by dozens of humans carrying the disease. Perhaps it's more an issue of sanitary conditions than it is with farming practices blamed for meat contamination. Unbiased blogging would be appropriate here, not one sided posting. Shame on you.
