(Salon)   Politicians who support "big agriculture" and factory farms are plunging the US into an antibiotics nightmare because bacteria are adapting a resistance to drugs and there might be a global pandemic that would destroy us all. Or not   (salon.com) divider line 5

I think its ignorant and farking silly to think giving our livestock antibiotics ISNT hurting us down the line. MRSA and the like that come from hospitals are becoming to resistant simply because over overexposure to antibiotics, to think livestock who get it farking daily arent creating antibiotic immune diseases is just plain ignorant

It's worth pointing out that everyone who purchases meat produced with antibiotics is directly supporting and funding the problem also.

Of course,  it feels good to say that it's someone else's fault.  Especially if you can pin it on someone you already hate - evil corporations, or heartless politicians - those rat bastards.  But the truth is that theconsumers of meat are just as complicit as anyone else, if not more so - they are where the money flows from from.

If "evil" means looking out for your own self interest without concern for the consequences on other people, then consumers who
knowingly support the industry are every bit as "evil" as the corporations.  You can end the practice with your purchasing habits.  Have a bowl of oatmeal instead.

Summoner101: El Dudereno: Summoner101: That's a little hyperbolic, but the past couple decades of using antibacterials as a first line panacea for everything isn't doing us any favors.

Seriously. Until fairly recently, people were being prescribed antibiotics for viruses. WTF?

Fortunately, working in a hospital, it's great to see doctors taking a harder stand against patients who are diagnosed with non-bacteria related diseases demanding to be prescribed antibacterials.


Patients are usually morons in that regard, and can be forgiven (whilst still denying them the anti-Bs). It's the doctors who prescribe Anti-Bs for every farking little ailment to prevent "Secondary infections" that need to be taken out back and shot.

BMFPitt: I'm actually shocked that this hasn't happened already the way we overuse antibiotics.

I guess total overkill is better than taking half a course. Harder to gradually ramp up resistance that way.

Ever notice how young girls have huge ass racks at the age of 12 now.. No I'm not a perv.

Shoot up the cows with a hormone to make them milk more. Kids drink the milk, kids have huge ass knockers at age 12.

Suddenly lost my train of thought, carry on.
