The horrifying truth about the antibiotic issue

According to Natural News, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not established enforceable guidelines for the appropriate use of antibiotics in livestock; the conventional meat industry continues to feed about 30 million pounds of these drugs annually to these animals. Recent figures released by the Pew Charitable Trusts reveal that the amount of antibiotics used in meat and poultry production now outpaces the amount used to treat sick people by a factor of five.

An "infographic" recently put out by that non-profit public policy group illustrates a steady rise in animal antibiotic use since the early 2000s, despite near-steady usage rates in humans, which recently prompted the FDA to at least acknowledge the problem.

"[W]hile human antibiotic use has leveled off at below 8 [million] pounds annually, livestock farms have been sucking in more and more of the drugs each year -- and consumption reached a record nearly 29.9 [million] pounds in 2011," writes Tom Philpott for Mother Jones. "To put it another way, the livestock industry is now consuming nearly four-fifths of the antibiotics used in the U.S., and its appetite for them is growing."

Although "USDA Organic" standards and labels prohibit the use of GMOs or Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) confinement practices, the overwhelming majority of non-organic foods in grocery stores or supermarkets today fail to reveal whether or not they likely contain GMOs or come from a factory farm supply chain. Up to 90 percent of U.S. soy, corn, cotton, canola and sugar beets are now genetically engineered and routinely laced into foods with no labels or safety testing whatsoever. And, of course, hapless animals confined in CAFOs are reared on a diet of genetically engineered corn, soy, cottonseed and drugs.
