FDA to Phase Out Use of Antibiotics in Meats

It’s a start. Antibiotics have been used to increase the growth rate of animals. But their use has been linked to¬† antibiotic resistance and implicated in illnesses in humans. There is a long way to go to get them out of our food chain, but this is a beginning. My recommendation remains to do all you can to eat healthfully raised animals only–even if it means limiting how much meat you eat.
