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.
