FDA Plans to Reduce Antibiotic Use in Factory Farms

Antibiotic-resistant bacteria is a major threat to public health. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration Agency (FDA) is devising a plan to curb antibiotic use in livestock, where the majority of antibiotics are used. According to the FDA 81% of all the raw ground turkey, 69% of pork chops, 55% of ground beef and 39% of chicken the agency tested was contaminated with antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The FDA's plan will encourage the voluntary reduction in antibiotics used in livestock.

Antibiotics are used in God’s animals raised for food so they can survive the conditions in factory farms that include intense confinement and filth, where disease is very common. Instead of waiting for pharmaceutical companies and factory farms to voluntary reduce the use of antibiotics in meat, egg and dairy production, we should all stop eating God’s animals. Change starts with us and the effects ripple throughout God’s Creation.
