So we use antibiotics in meat animals? What do we do with the ones that aren't made out of meat?

Gee wally. I wonder why people make fun of Organic foods that don't include such things as antibiotics.

Raharu: Would you rather have diseased meat on your table?

Really, at that rate of consumption, it's not meat anymore, not meat ever again. I wonder if it decomposes?

Oh and it's not diseased until the cattle hit the feed lot and start eating corn. Cattle are meant to eat grasses not corn. When they're fed corn for 120 days they'll die if they aren't fed antibiotics. Can't say much about chicken - just don't know. Well other than it's "hurry up and die" from a producers stand point

Some of you fine folks have to watch some muck raker documentaries to really understand it. I say this because I can't be sure if there's a lot of innocents and republicans or just folks lacking a bit of insight.

As much as I rail about Netflix, they have a great library of titles on the crap in the grocery store that passes for food.
