I think the interesting thing that most americans dont realize is that the FARM BILL is connected to all of this, and not the way that you think. If you look at % of money that goes into the farm bill and goes into the USDA, and then look at the money that goes into food stamps, I think that most people would be shocked.
STRONGER Australian livestock exports - not just to Indonesia - are on the priority list for the newly elected Coalition government, says federal Nationals leader and incoming deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss.
Traditional farming methods were transformed in the 1920s when it was discovered that vitamins A and D could be added to animal feed and allow livestock to be raised without exercise and sunlight for growth.
LiveScience.com As Superbugs Rise, New Studies Point To Factory Farms (Op-Ed) LiveScience.com For decades, scientists have been teasing out the link between the abuse of antibiotics on livestock farms and the rise of superbug infections in humans.
Josh Nelson's insight:
Interesting, would like more facts and statistics on the subject matter than just one case.
Going into a differnt but same topic,
Being a person who grew up on a farm, I personally feel that i am more resistant to getting sick and diseases. I feel my immune system is lot better than a normal person for being indroduced the things I have going out and helping my father plant and harvest the crops and being in the pig and cattle barns when I was little. I am not sure if there is any scientific data behind it, it would be an interesting study to do.
I dont know if this can be related to the antibiotics but in terms of immunity, I feel that living on a farm has helped.
If you know if I am completly imagining all of this and thinking a lie please let me know.
New scientific research has cast grave doubt on the safety testing of hundreds of thousands of consumer products, food additives and industrial chemicals.
Everyday products, from soft drinks and baby foods, to paints, gardening products, cosmetics and shampoos, contain numerous synthetic chemicals as preservatives, dyes, active ingredients, or as contaminants. Official assurances of the safety of these chemicals are based largely on animal experiments that use rabbits, mice, rats and dogs.
But new results from a consortium of researchers and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggest such assurances may be worthless
In summary, repeated experiments confirmed that, when it comes to inflammation, mice and humans have little in common, a finding important enough in itself given the prevalence of inflammation-related diseases in humans. These include allergies, celiac disease, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, and autoimmune diseases.
