Don’t get surprised by random infections cases around.
If you share locality with non-veg eaters whose dead animals come from industrial animal farm, you also share gutter with them and all antibiotic pollution and resistance. And this is true for all non-veg eaters as they really don’t have control over their food chain.
The Infectious Diseases Society of America estimates that antibiotic resistance is costing the U.S. health care sector between $21 and $34 billion a year.
For your kind information:
Indian Govt and all state govt(s) are sleeping on this issue. Will wake up when situation will go out of control. Guj Govt even gives subsidy for poultry business, even by violating rule that no poultry can start within 500 m of human habitat ! Mr. Narendra Modi openly promoted it in his speeches.
Doctors Call on Hospitals to Oppose the Overuse Of Antibiotics in Animal Agriculture
To help stop the spread of antibiotic resistance, UC San Francisco scientists are urging hospitals around the country to stop buying meat from animals that were given antibiotics for growth promotion.
For the last two years, UCSF Medical Center has been phasing out meat from animals that were routinely fed antibiotics, and now nearly a third of the meat served to patients, as well as in the medical center’s cafeterias and catering operations, comes from animals that were only given antibiotics in the case of illness.
Experts warn that the overuse of antibiotics in animal agriculture is endangering human health. Agricultural use accounts for nearly 80 percent of the antibiotics sold in the United States, and the vast majority are from classes used to treat infections in people.
“This practice encourages the development of resistance,” said Thomas B. Newman, MD, MPH, professor of epidemiology and biostatistics, as well as pediatrics at UCSF, and an author of the commentary, which appeared in the Oct. 15 issue of the American Journal of Public Health. “Antibiotics are now more and more recognized as a precious resource that needs to be managed sustainably.”
