    You could not breed MRSA without the robust effort to treat livestock first.

    farm animals...could we define this a bit more...cause its will be mostly chickens and cows...if you want to bitch and whine.....about animals raised for food then do it but do it with a more convincing reason...ie....grain being diverted from human consumption to feed animals....downer animals being put in the food supply the list just goes on and on...the use of anitbiotics is just one of the issues....

    so echo what do you think should be down with so called farm animals...stop raising them.....what

    Do you believe in SCIENCE? Are you aware that Humans are Omnivores? Are you aware we are SUPPOSED to consume meat products, it is required to stay healthy? It is NATURAL? It is what NATURE intended for us?

    Not only that but a diet high in grains is bad for humans and animals that are fed grains are not good for us either.

    I had read some years ago that they injected animals with antibiotics to fatten them up. Make it illegal to use methods like these, it would be a start anyway.
