WORST BEE DIE-OFF IN 40 YEARS

Spring is in the air, and as we plant our vegetable gardens and enjoy the blossoming flowers, it’s easy to forget the small creatures that keep many of our spring favorites alive and are essential to our food supply: bees...

One out of every three bites of food you and I eat is pollinated by honeybees. In fact, bees and other pollinators are necessary for about 75 percent of our global food crops....

As you may have read in the news, these critical pollinators are in trouble, victims of Colony Collapse Disorder – or CCD, a phenomenon in which bee colonies have been mysteriously collapsing when adult bees seemingly abandon their hives...

Neonics are the fastest-growing class of synthetic pesticides in history, and the neonicotinoid imidacloprid (Bayer Crop Science's top-selling product), is currently the most widely used insecticide in the world. Neonics are used as seed treatments on more than 140 crop varieties, as well as on termites, cat and dog flea treatments, lawns, landscapes and gardens. Neonics are persistent and last for years in the soil. They permeate the entire plant and are expressed in pollen, nectar and guttation droplets (dew). And, they can’t be washed off food, meaning that we are all eating them.

What’s worse, Neonics aren’t just in use in commercial agriculture. Many of the plants and seeds we buy in nurseries across the U.S. have been pre-treated with the pesticides and at much higher doses than is used on farms – so when we plant our gardens we may unwittingly be harming bees!...http://www.foe.org/news/blog/2013-03-worst-bee-die-off-in-40-years

THE TRUE COSTS OF INDUSTRIALIZED FOOD

THE TRUE COSTS OF INDUSTRIALIZED FOOD | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

24 March, 2013 - Other Worlds

The objective of much of our industrial food system is to provide a profit to shareholders and CEOs. Coca-Cola’s advertising budget was over $2.9 billion dollars in 2010, money well spent from a stockholder’s point of view: profits that year were $11.8 billion.

The current system, however, was not built only to amass wealth. Many policymakers and supporters, historically as today, have been driven by the conviction that industrial agriculture is the best way to produce massive amounts of affordable food. And in some ways it has accomplished this. People in the U.S. spend relatively little on food – about 7 percent of their total spending, as compared to 13 percent in France, 23 percent in Mexico, and 38 percent in Vietnam.

On the buying end, it seems an irresistibly good deal, our 99¢ soda or $1.50 loaf of bread. But these prices represent just a fraction of the true costs of getting that soda and bread into our shopping bags. We pay for the hidden costs of the corporate food supply chain in multiple ways, not all of them financially.... http://www.otherworldsarepossible.org/other-worlds/true-costs-industrialized-food

Bill Gates' Excellent African Adventure: A Tale of Technocratic Agroindustrial Philanthrocapitalism

Bill Gates' Excellent African Adventure: A Tale of Technocratic Agroindustrial Philanthrocapitalism | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

GeneWatch: Council for Responsible Genetics by Phil Bereano, JD, professor emeritus at the University of Washington and a co-founder of the Council for Responsible Genetics.

 

From 2009 to 2011, Bill Gates' foundation spent $478,302,627 to influence African agricultural development. Adding in the value of agricultural grants going to multiple regions and those for 2012, the Foundation's outlay to influence African agriculture is around $1 billion. Of course, Gates is not an African, not a scholar of Africa, not a farmer, and not a development expert. But he is a very rich man, and he knows how he wants to remake the world.

Gates' support for ag development strategies favors industrial, high-tech, capitalist market approaches. In particular, his support for genetically engineered crops as a solution for world hunger is of concern to those of us - in Africa and the U.S. - involved in promoting sustainable, equitable agricultural policies.

First, his technocratic ideology runs counter to the best informed science.... http://www.councilforresponsiblegenetics.org/GeneWatch/GeneWatchPage.aspx?pageId=459

In an attempt to improve food safety, the country has apparently tightened rules so that dead pigs can no longer sold for human consumption or for animal feed, such as fish food. Consequently, it seems as though farmers are dumping carcasses into the rivers at night. Prior to the stricter controls, which began in 2005, it was rare to find pigs in the waterways...http://inhabitat.com/hundreds-of-dead-pigs-pulled-from-chinese-waterways-every-month/

- ▶  U.S. REGULATORS SNEAKILY GIVE CHINA APPROVAL TO PURCHASE SMITHFIELD, AMERICA'S LARGEST FACTORY FARM HOG PRODUCER. The merger has drawn congressional scrutiny in regards to food safety, as well as concerns about drug safety.

Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., noted that because the CFIUS review includes issues of national security, it is done in secret with no public oversight or transparency. 

    “It remains unclear what factors the [CFIUS] took into account in making its decision,” Stabenow said. “We still do not know if the potential impact on American food security, the transfer of taxpayer funded innovation to a foreign competitor, or China's protectionist trade barriers were considered.”

Monsanto is the agricultural-biotechnology monster who brought us Agent Orange and Round-Up. They also brought us “Round-Up Ready” corn, soybean, cotton, and canola seeds. These seeds, which are sold to industrial farmers, have been genetically engineered to withstand overhead spraying of glyphosate, the herbicide found in Round-Up. Monsanto’s latest horror, Round-Up Ready alfalfa, which spells the end of organic dairy products, was approved by the Obama administration in January, 2011. http://www.scoop.it/t/agriculture-gmos-pesticides/p/2174451098/sneak-attack-bringing-gmo-seeds-to-your-home-veggie-garden-without-labeling

 ▶  NEONICOTINOID TOXIC PESTICIDES IN YOUR GARDEN  : WORST BEE DIE-OFF IN 40 YEARS http://sco.lt/9E5WIT Neonics are the fastest-growing class of synthetic pesticides in history, and the neonicotinoid imidacloprid (Bayer Crop Science's top-selling product), is currently the most widely used insecticide in the world. Neonics are used as seed treatments on more than 140 crop varieties, as well as on termites, cat and dog flea treatments, lawns, landscapes and gardens. Neonics are persistent and last for years in the soil. They permeate the entire plant and are expressed in pollen, nectar and guttation droplets (dew). And, they can’t be washed off food, meaning that we are all eating them.

 

 ▶  NEONICS AREN'T JUST IN USE IN COMMERCIAL AGRICULTURE.  Many of the plants and seeds we buy in nurseries across the U.S. have been pre-treated with the pesticides and at much higher doses than is used on farms – so when we plant our gardens we may unwittingly be harming bees! http://sco.lt/9E5WIT

How GMO Foods Affect Health - Gene Altered Foods Now Large Part of American Diet | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

 March 8, 2013 - Daily Health Post

- ▶  HOW GMO FOODS AFFECT HEALTH

The FDA’s position on genetically modified foods is that they are totally safe to eat, and pose no risk to the health of consumers. But health-conscious eaters (as well as the entirety of the European Union) have some reservations, and recent studies show that an aversion to GMO foods is not just idle paranoia. In fact, crops and meats that have been genetically modified may have a harmful effect on various organ systems and consumers’ health in general. Read on to find out more.

pdjmoo's insight:

Everything is interconnected.  Common sense tells us that if it impacts the health of our natural world and its incredible and intricate web of life it is impacting we humans, for we depend upon a healthy natural world for our own health and wellbeing.   Nature is the key.  To restore human health, we must restore Nature's health returning to the natural demands of our environment that it needs to maintain balance and wellbeing.  The old industrial, military complex mindset has led us to this brink of planetary ecocide and we must find a new way of living on this glorious planet for the sake of all living species.

Pesticide use is the leading cause of a nationwide decline of grassland bird species, beating out habitat loss, according to a new study....

Species of owls, sparrows, and meadowlarks are on the long list of American farm-dwelling birds that are disappearing in part because they’re sucking down any of more than 100 types of pesticides. The pesticides also take a toll by killing the insects that the birds would eat.... http://grist.org/news/pesticides-kill-birds/

There is a growing push to integrate trees and shrubs with crops. The understanding of agroforestry is increasing its acceptance, use and potential for boosting food security and sustainable land use... Done well, it allows producers to make the best use of their land, can boost field crop yields, diversify income, and increase resilience to climate change... http://ourworld.unu.edu/en/how-agroforestry-schemes-can-improve-food-security-in-developing-countries/

pdjmoo's insight:

This is how nature was originally before man stepped in with his idea of more, faster, bigger philosophy. Biotechnology and science have altered nature and her landscape beyond recognition, destroying soil, biodiversity, ecosystem and environment in their rush for control of the global food supply.  Small farmers were gobbled up by multi-national corporations and we began eating factory farmed produce, raised and grown in un-natural ways.   But we forget that the food grown has to be marketed, processed and packaged. The result ... sickness and colonialization of developing countries through destroying their cultural diets in favor of western, which their bodies were not accommodating and destroying family livelihoods in the process.  If you want to change a culture, you change their food.

Why We Poison Our Food and Dr. Seuss

Why We Poison Our Food and Dr. Seuss | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

Jan 31, 2013 Jill Richardson

I just finished reading a book I highly recommend: The War on Bugs by Will Allen. Allen grew up on a farm, then studied war chemicals in the Marines, and was surprised when he returned to the farm to find out that farm chemicals were "modified versions of the nerve poisons and antipersonnel weapons that [he] learned about when studying chemical warfare in the Marine Corps." Today he’s an organic farmer and he serves on the policy advisory board of Organic Consumers Association (as do I).

 Agricultural chemicals didn’t hit the big time until after World War II, for a number of reasons. But much of the story happens before World War II, before they became widely used on U.S. farms. That history is significant, and Allen uses primary sources to completely document it.

As early as the 1800′s, advertisers began promoting farm chemicals, often industrial wastes and often highly toxic heavy metals like lead and arsenic. ...Even before pesticides hit prime time in the U.S., advertisers were hard at work, trying to figure out how to successfully overcome farmers’ and consumers’ concern about applying poisonous chemicals to food....

RSPB demands ban on deadly pesticides linked to bee decline

RSPB demands ban on deadly pesticides linked to bee decline | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

Feb 21, 2013 The Independent

Controversial nerve-agent pesticides widely linked to decline in bees around the world should be banned, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) says today.

More than 30 separate scientific studies in the last three years have shown adverse effects on insects from neonicotinoids, which are "systemic" insecticides, meaning they enter every part of the target plants – including the pollen and nectar which bees harvest.... http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/nature/rspb-demands-ban-on-deadly-pesticides-linked-to-bee-decline-8503950.html

pdjmoo's insight:

Common Sense and critical thinking do not require a Scientific Ph.D.   If these highly toxic pesticides and chemicals are destroying our biodiverity and beneficial insects, what do you think they might be doing to our human body.  FEB 23, 2013 MONSANTO's "ROUNDUP" IS MORE TOXIC THAN DECLARED PROVES NEW SERALINI STUDY http://www.occupymonsanto360.org/2013/02/23/roundup-is-more-toxic-than-declared-proves-new-seralini-study/ Could they be having the same impact resulting in Alzheimer's and other neurological deficits?  And what about the food we eat that have been sprayed with these poisons?  And what about the honey that these poor bees produce?  Is that contaminated too?  Time for the big global chemical companies to take responsibility for what they're doing to our planet and we humans with little or no disclosure, regulation or oversight, like gigantic ships in the night slipping under the safety radar screen.

SPEAKING UP FOR WILDLIFE
Have we perhaps been afflicted with some kind of madness? Surely it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that life on Earth cannot be sustained if we continue to systematically wipe out the plants and animals that the planet's food chains and eco-systems depend upon for their very existence?  http://beestrawbridge.blogspot.com/2013/06/speaking-up-for-wildlife.html

WORST BEE DIE-OFF IN 40 YEARS http://sco.lt/9E5WIT

Neonics are the fastest-growing class of synthetic pesticides in history, and the neonicotinoid imidacloprid (Bayer Crop Science's top-selling product), is currently the most widely used insecticide in the world. Neonics are used as seed treatments on more than 140 crop varieties, as well as on termites, cat and dog flea treatments, lawns, landscapes and gardens. Neonics are persistent and last for years in the soil. They permeate the entire plant and are expressed in pollen, nectar and guttation droplets (dew). And, they can’t be washed off food, meaning that we are all eating them.

 

WHAT'S WORSE, NEONICS AREN'T JUST IN USE IN COMMERCIAL AGRICULTURE.  Many of the plants and seeds we buy in nurseries across the U.S. have been pre-treated with the pesticides and at much higher doses than is used on farms – so when we plant our gardens we may unwittingly be harming bees! http://sco.lt/9E5WIT

Monarch Butterfly Migration Plunges - The Perfect Storm: GMO Crops, Big Ag & Pesticides

March 13, 2013 - New York Times

MONARCH MIGRATION PLUNGES TO LOWEST LEVEL - THREATENING EXTINCTION

The monarch migration population to their winter home in a Mexican forest sank this year to a 59 percent declines since December 2011 due to extreme weather and a lack of the milkweed that the butterflies feed on, experts say.

 But an equally alarming source of the decline  is the explosive increase in American farmland planted in soybean and corn genetically modified to tolerate herbicides.

The American Midwest’s corn belt is a critical feeding ground for monarchs, which once found a ready source of milkweed growing between the rows of millions of acres of soybean and corn. But the ubiquitous use of herbicide-tolerant crops has enabled farmers to wipe out the milkweed, and with it much of the butterflies’ food supply.

“That habitat is virtually gone. We’ve lost well over 120 million acres, and probably closer to 150 million acres,” Mr. Taylor said.

A rapid expansion of farmland — more than 25 million new acres in the United States since 2007 — has eaten away grasslands and conservation reserves that supplied the monarchs with milkweed" ...  http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/14/science/earth/monarch-migration-plunges-to-lowest-level-in-decades.html?smid=tw-nytnational&seid=auto

Feb 26, 2013 - Common Dreams

Corporations relying on cheap land and labor are ruining human lives and the natural world, says campaign

The world's largest food and beverage companies may be profitable, but according to Oxfam International their practices are helping to destroy not only the natural resources that support a global food system but the lives of the people they depend on most: their employees and their customers....

In a new effort called Behind the Brand, part of their ongoing GROW campaign to fix the broken food system, Oxfam has singled out the ten largest food processing companies—Associated British Foods (ABF), Coca Cola, Danone, General Mills, Kellogg’s, Mars, Mondelez, Nestlé, Pepsico and Unilever—to make a singular statement about the failure of these behemoths to fulfill their social and environmental responsibilities.

According to Oxfam, these “Big 10”—that together generate $1 billion-a-day in profit—are failing millions of people in developing countries who supply land, labor, water and commodities needed to make their products.

This matters, of course, because we deserve to know where our food comes from--and how it's made.  http://www.fastcocreate.com/3032899/see-who-actually-owns-the-food-you-eat-and-how-theyre-behaving

Ryan Pigeau's curator insight, January 22, 10:11 AM

Companies which combined generate over $1Billion a day have the power to make ethical decisions and make lasting impressions on the world.

 

It's only the larger companies like this that we can depend on to make any responsible changes because their impacts are on a global scale.

Unfortunately, right now it's the opposite.

 

Those companies which we've looked to and depended on throughout our entire lives are now faced with the choice to alter the way they do business and stop hurting the world around them or continue to produce on a greedy, destructive path

A research team at the University of Guelph has developed a new line of transgenic Enviropigs. The new line of pigs is called the Cassie line, and it is known for passing genes on more reliably.

Though no studies indicate a food safety risk from genetically modified Enviropig pork, meat from the Enviropig is not yet available for human consumption. Forsberg said using Enviropigs could improve food production and the environment.... http://www.seeddaily.com/reports/Scientists_improve_transgenic_Enviropigs_999.html

Los Angeles, May 03, 2014
- ▶ USA SCIENTISTS RACE TO BIO-ENGINEER CHICKENS AND FARM ANIMALS UNDER THE GUISE OF CLIMATE CHANGE & 'FEED THE WORLD" SPIN.

                 "The idea is to create animals that are more efficient,"

The researchers are in the vanguard of food scientists, backed by millions of dollars from the U.S. federal government, racing to develop new breeds of farm animals that can "stand up to the hazards of global warming" (and keep the billion dollar corporate factory farm industry in control of our food)

   Some climate-change activists dismiss the work, which is just getting underway, as a distraction and a concession to industrial-style agriculture, which they blame for compounding the world's environmental problems. Those leading the experiments, however, say new, "heat-resistant breeds of farm animals" will be essential to feeding the world as climate change takes hold.

▶ HOW COMPANIES FRAME ISSUES OF FOOD AND GLOBAL HUNGER FOR THEIR OWN SELF-INTEREST AND BOTTOMLINE PROFITS

There is a new, but deceptive, foreign drive to end hunger in Africa through large-scale agribusiness. Yet helping poor households in rural Africa feed themselves in an affordable manner means introducing low-cost, sustainable enhancements to farming.

History is riddled with examples of the poor dying of hunger when food was plentiful. Classic amongst these is the famine which wracked the West African Sahel during the early 1970s. While people were dying of hunger in Senegal, Mali and Niger, peanuts — a key sauce ingredient and source of protein across the region — were being exported to Europe....

...The rise of philanthrocapitalism in the US, where former and current business leaders, through the strength of their foundations, have increasingly come to influence the shape and direction of US international development programmes. Central to the philanthrocapitalist worldview is a belief that private enterprise is the fundamental agent of progressive change and that business acumen trumps other forms of expertise... http://www.pambazuka.org/en/category/features/85291

To illustrate the scale of this operation, Europe's largest gene sequencing centre is the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute near Cambridge. It has 30 machines.

Since about 2006, Ventria has been quietly cultivating rice that has been genetically modified (GM) with genes from the human liver for the purpose of taking the artificial proteins produced by this “Frankenrice” and using them in pharmaceuticals.

Three decades ago, humanity had a problem; science had a fascination; and industry had an opportunity. Our problem was injustice. The ranks of the hungry were expanding while the ranks of farmers were thinning. Meanwhile, science was fascinated by biotechnology – the idea that we could genetically engineer crops and livestock (and people) with traits that could overcome all our problems. Agribusiness saw an opportunity to extract the enormous surplus value that was laced throughout the food chain. The hugely decentralized food system held pockets of profit just crying out to be centralized.  All the biotechnology industry had to do is chase away the competition and coerce governments into surrendering control. ....http://www.etcgroup.org/content/who-owns-nature

National Geographic, "Future of Food" May 02, 2014
▶ FEED THE WORLD:  FAMILY FARMERS HOLD KEYS TO AGRICULTURE IN A WARMING WORLD. Faced with global warming and a population that will swell to nine billion by 2050, a growing number of experts say that the way to feed the masses as climate change makes growing our food more difficult is to focus on family farmers, who often can barely feed themselves. ... 

   When policymakers in the developed world talk about feeding billions of extra mouths in the decades to come, it's multinational agribusinesses—which operate industrial-size farms—that usually get most of the attention.

   But in the long run, it's small-scale farmers in the developing world, using low-tech but sustainable agricultural techniques, who may be best poised to lead the way in adapting to a warmer world and ensuring the security of the global food supply. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2014/05/140502-climate-change-agriculture-family-farm-science/

pdjmoo's insight:

THE ETHICS AND MORALITY OF PATENTING LIFE

There are no serious regulations, oversight or ethical requirements  for altering our food and food animals with genes for one reason...  Huge Profits .. To allow corporations to control our  factory farms and monculture crops and continue expanding, destroying health of environment and ecosystems and rivers.  Rather than stop what they're doing, this biotech gene-altering cartel will have changed nature and life within it to suit their ongoing juggernaut to control the world food supply - with or without authentic independently funded,peer-reviewed research as to both short and long-term affects on the animals, ecosystems and human health.  The growth-hormones used in our meat and poultry and pesticides/chemicals for the agricultural crops will eventually show up in the human condition, but it will be too late.  Obesity, Cancer and Diabetes is already a global epidemic wherever these GMO foods penetrate markets.  Most processed foods contain genetically engineered ingredients.

 ▶ WAKE UP AND SMELL THE GMOs - A MOTHER'S VOICE SPEAKS OUT ON CORPORATE BETRAYAL OF TRUST

By Tracy Madlener - Spicie

I am angry.  I can’t believe that I live in a country where the food I buy and give to my children is not trustworthy.  I am astounded that there are well known businesses in America that are using the citizens who live here in this country as their lab rats.  I am mad as hell that there are people that work for these companies that are poisoning our kids.  I am disturbed that when those that speak up for what is right is fired and or threatened for their knowledge of the truth.  I am displeased that our eyes have been covered from the dangers that is being fed to us and our babies… but no more, my blinders have come off....  http://spicie.com/health/wake-up-and-smell-the-gmos/

    -▶ TOXIC INSECTICIDES PUT WORLD FOOD SUPPLIES AT RISK, SAY SCIENTISTS. Regulations on pesticides have failed to prevent poisoning of almost all habitats, international team of scientists concludes. The world’s most widely used insecticides have contaminated the environment across the planet so pervasively that global food production is at risk, according to a comprehensive scientific assessment of the chemicals’ impacts.
The researchers compare their impact with that reported in Silent Spring, the landmark 1962 book by Rachel Carson that revealed the decimation of birds and insects by the blanket use of DDT and other pesticides and led to the modern environmental movement.
Billions of dollars’ worth of the potent and long-lasting neurotoxins are sold every year but regulations have failed to prevent the poisoning of almost all habitats, the international team of scientists concluded in the most detailed study yet. As a result, they say, creatures essential to global food production – from bees to earthworms – are likely to be suffering grave harm and the chemicals must be phased out... http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/jun/24/insecticides-world-food-supplies-risk

 ▶ MONSANTO ROUNDUP: BIG AG PESTICIDES AND  THE IMPACTS OF GLYPHOSATE HERBICIDE ON HUMAN HEALTH
The foodstuffs of the Western diet, primarily grown by industrial agriculture, are increasingly being produced using a two-part system of engineered plant seeds and toxic chemical application. Consequences are most of the diseases and conditions associated with a Western diet, which include gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.

The End of The Line - The Future Of Fish

The End of The Line - The Future Of Fish | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

July 07, 2012 TIME Magazine

Fish are the last wild food, but our oceans are being picked clean. Can farming fish take the place of catching them?

"Fish are the last wild food," says Paul Greenberg, author of Four Fish, one of the best books on the state of seafood. "And we're just realizing it."

But we may be coming to that realization too late, because it turns out that even the fathomless depths of the oceans have limits. The U.N. reports that 32% of global fish stocks are overexploited or depleted and as much as 90% of large species like tuna and marlin have been fished out in the past half-century. Once-plentiful species like Atlantic cod have been fished to near oblivion, and delicacies like bluefin tuna are on an arc toward extinction. A recent report by the International Programme on the State of the Ocean found that the world's marine species faced threats "unprecedented in human history" — and overfishing is part of the problem.

pdjmoo's curator insight, February 17, 2013 7:42 PM

The global pesticide industry is a trillion dollar business.  The fact that they poison our ecsytems and lifeform within them, devastate our soils and waterways and enters our human bodies in the form of food and water is not their concern... it is control of the global food supply and quarterl bottom-line profits.   Their first line of defense is to attach any independent, peer review research that contradicts their own industry-supported findings.

FDA dithers on regulation, releases new numbers on the industry's showing nearly half of retail chicken carries antibiotic-resistant Campylobacter.

While human antibiotic use has leveled off at below 8 billion pounds annually, livestock farms have been sucking in more and more of the drugs each year—and consumption reached a record nearly 29.9 billion pounds in 2011. To put it another way, the livestock industry is now consuming nearly four-fifths of the antibiotics used in the US, and its appetite for them is growing... http://www.motherjones.com/tom-philpott/2013/02/meat-industry-still-gorging-antibiotics
