Human health endangered by Cattle growers

Postby Sergio » Mar 13, 2007 9:24 am

Here is the quote from Slashdot
"The Washington post reports that the FDA is expected to approve the marketing of the new antibiotic called Cefquinome for use in cattle. This is over objections of the American medical association, the FDA advisory board and the World Health Organization. Cefquinome is from a class of highly potent 'last line of defense' antibiotics for several serious human infections. It is feared that large scale use in cattle will allow bacteria to develop a resistance to these drugs. This news follows complaints from the FDA that it is no longer getting the funds needed to do the research required for the desired level of food safety."

And people ask why humanity should become vegan?
Because otherwise we will destroy ourselves.

Wow. . .


What amuses and frightens me about this is that many people I know would side with FOX and the Meat & Dairy Associations claiming any objections as "bullshit!".

Do they really know what they are doing? Seemed that they don't really care about human health...
