Why UTI’s and Chicken Might be Linked

A steady increase of urinary tract infections in women within the past 3 years has raised concerns about its cause. The culprit, E.coli, has been found; however, the source of this strain was unknown until recently. Research studies in the United States, Canada, and Europe have found close genetic matches between resistant E. coli collected from human patients and resistant strains found on chicken or turkey sold in supermarkets or collected from birds being slaughtered. According to researchers, chicken, which is the low-cost, low-fat protein that Americans eat more than any other meat is the link that allows resistant bacteria to move to humans.

How is it possible to go on exploiting animals so mercilessly and expect no consequences? Surprisingly, this is what humanity has been doing and continues to do in spite of the warnings. So, if we want to create a healthy, peaceful and joyous world, we need to spread with warm hands the same onto other beings. Allowing God’s animals to live healthy, peaceful and joyous lives is probably the easiest but most important task we have as stewards of God’s creation. After all, what we sow, we also reap.
