God’s Farmed Animals Are Laden With Antibiotics

Last year, about 80 percent of all reported antibiotic sales (30 million pounds) were fed to livestock as standard procedure in order for these animals to survive the conditions in factory farms and to make them grow faster than nature intends. David A. Kessler, commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration from 1990 to 1997, explains that this irresponsible use of antibiotics is the leading cause of bacterial resistance to antibiotics.

Please visit Antibiotics and the Meat We Eat:
The fact that health and government officials are ignoring the overuse of antibiotics in God's farmed animals is simply appalling. We are creating the perfect environment for an epidemic that we might not be able to stop, unless we wake up to the fact that God's animals are not commodities to be used and abused, but rather sentient beings who share the Earth with us.
