Vladimir Putin is quite irritable these days. And probably, for a good cause.
On top of all the stress of invading and conquering, Vladimir, like most Russians, eats a ton of meat and dairy products, proven to be choke-full of antibiotics, which reek havoc on our gut and digestive tract.
Poor Vladimir, right? WRONG! Poor all of us.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) admitted during Congressional testimony that the overuse of antibiotics in cows, chickens, pigs and other animals is leading to new strains of antibiotic-resistant “super bugs”.
“(The) USDA believes that it is likely that the use of antibiotics in animal agriculture does lead to some cases of antibacterial resistance among humans and in the animals themselves and it is important that these medically important antibiotics be used judiciously,”
Antibiotics are now in our food supply, on your table for tonight’s meal most likely, or in that hamburger you grabbed for a quick lunch break.
According to a study from the Union for Concerned Scientists, meat producers feed some 25 million pounds of antibiotics to chickens, pigs and cows for non-therapeutic purposes each year.
Stated another way, the amount of antibiotics fed to healthy animals is eight times greater than the amount given to sick people, which is 3 million pounds per year.
Eight Times GREATER!
We need to restore our good bacteria, called “probiotics” that are killed by all of the “antibiotics”.
Read on to hear about our new, improved Pro-Biotic Max formula and learn how to avoid horrific digestive issues – like Irritable Bowel Syndrome – once and forevermore!
70% of all Antibiotics are used on Farms
The massive over prescription of antibiotics on animals is breeding new strains of antibiotic-resistant bacteria that can, and have, spread to humans. One such “super bug” is Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus or “MRSA” that is a growing problem in schools, hospitals, day care centers, locker rooms, public restrooms, and prisons.
In fact, more people die in the U.S. from antibiotic-resistant staph infections like MRSA than from AIDS. And antibiotics continue to decline in effectiveness for treating both human and animal diseases.
Please, take a moment now to watch this short video with Katie Couric of CBS reporting on the problem.
Factory farms pump the antibiotics into healthy animals at such saturation levels that they automatically flow through to us humans. The report, “Hogging It: Estimates of Antimicrobial Abuse in Livestock”, states that the livestock industry feeds 10 million pounds of antibiotics to healthy hogs each year; 11 million pounds to poultry; and 4 million pounds to cattle.
What scientists now fear is that the antibiotic saturation of our meat supply means drugs not approved for use in humans are now turning up on our family dinner table.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is aware of the issue and in July issued a “draft guidance” on the use of antibiotics for healthy animals, which unfortunately is non-binding (meaning non-effective) and does not go nearly far enough to stave off the coming public health disaster.
Critics say quite rightly it is just pandering to the big, deep pocketed livestock industry. Until the FDA implements effective and unambiguous regulations to curtail the use of antibiotics in meat production, the risks to the American public will only increase.
How Bad Is It? – It is Really, Really Bad!
A 2009 study from the University of Iowa found that 70% of hogs and 64% of workers in industrial animal confinements tested positive for MRSA, the antibiotic-resistant super bug mentioned above. Government officials now lamely admit that humans can become infected from eating or even handling infected meat.
Antibiotics fed routinely to livestock in their food and water promotes faster growth, but the practice is also used as a way to compensate for the effects of extreme overcrowding and unsanitary conditions in factory farms.
Big livestock producers argue that there are no alternatives, but that is not the case. In 1998, after growing worried about the spread of resistant bacteria in humans, Denmark banned antibiotics for non-therapeutic use in animals. Since then, the Danish livestock industry has grown 43%.
While the FDA’s draft guidance may have some good suggestions, entrenched interests like big livestock producers AND big pharmaceuticsal corporations, will not respond to voluntary half measures.
So, is There Hope?
YES! There is so much hope.
First, you need to immediately stop eating all dead animal meat and all dairy products. Choose instead to use non-dairy alternatives.
Over a century ago, in 1907, Russian biologist and Nobel Prize winner Elie Metchnikoff wrote about longevity research in his famous book “The Prolongation of Life”. The hero of the book was a probiotic bacterial strain called “Streptococcus thermophilus”, which was famous in scientific circles for promoting gastrointestinal health.
Streptococcus thermophilus, along with Lactobacillus bulgaricus, soon became the starter strains used to make yogurt. Every tiny tub of yogurt today owes its existence to these two amazing probiotic compounds.
They form the core of our newly updated Pro-Biotic Max formula, along with 25 BILLION other live probiotics that can absolutely save your gut from these foreign, toxic organisms and help you to avoid IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME!
Should we send some to Vladimir?
Pro-Biotic Max: The KEY to YOUR Billionaire Gut
Our stomach and intestines contain billions of good and potentially harmful micro organisms. The good bacteria in the intestines (called probiotics) are considered to be an integral part of normal immune system support and are important in synthesizing certain vitamins and short-chain fatty acids to support a healthy intestinal lining and bolster immunity.
Healthy people usually have a ratio of approximately 85% good to 15% potentially harmful organisms in the intestinal tract. Daily exposure to environmental toxins such as chlorinated water, meat, dairy and antibiotics change the optimal microbial balance essential for good health.
Pro-Biotic Max ™ contains a blend of 10 different probiotic strains; Bifido bifidum, Bifido longum, Bifido breve, Lacto lactis, Lacto acidophilus, Lacto rhamnosus, Lacto casei, Lacto plantarum, Lacto bulgaricus, Lacto salivarius, totaling 25 billion live bacteria per capsule at time of manufacturing.
These “friendly bacteria” are blended in a base of Chamomile flowers, Orange blossoms, Slippery Elm Bark and Jerusalem Artichoke to aid the probiotics in passing through the through the stomach to the middle GI tract for increased absorption of nutrients and improved elimination of toxic compounds.
