U.S. Meat Farmers Brace for Limits on Antibiotics
After decades of debate, the Food and Drug Administration appears poised to issue stronger rules on antibiotics, intended to reduce what it calls a clear risk to humans.

I'd forgotten recently how much livestock production is responsible for the introduction of drug resistant bacteria strains to humans... it's just another reason I'm glad by being vegetarian I'm not contributing to the problem, and I'm hopeful about these new limits too, if the meat producers don't end up winning once again.

C'mon, look at those beady eyes and tell me they aren't cute...! Just like Wilbur!
