They kill: Resistant bacteria in meat, egg, and milk?

Posted on: February 20, 2011

In the last three decades, medical professionals have been warning mature people to avoid eating meat, egg, and milk:  Cardiovascular problems are the number one killer from high cholesterol levels and blood pressure, and…  Actually, eating meat, egg, and milk produced in industrial farms causes more deaths from ingesting resistant bacteria to antibiotics.  How that?

In the US, Canada, and Australia you have giant industrial animal farms, larger than entire villages.  Cattle, pig, and volatile are not fed with their natural food:  They eat cereals, of the same kind you eat, to fatten them quickly, with one difference.   The cereals of these farms are manufactured loaded with growth hormone and all varieties of antibiotics for “preventive reason”  so that the “edible” beasts do not get sick before they are slaughtered.  Cow can be sent to slaughter in half the time it normally take to fatten.

For example, in the US, the farm animals consume 70% of all antibiotics produced in the USA or 12,000 tons (while people in underdeveloped countries are dying of curable diseases).  The consequence is that the meat of these animals are infected with all kinds of virulent bacteria that are resistant to all the antibiotics they regurgitated.  Who die from eating cow, pig, chicken meat and products?  Mankind!

The bacteria E-Coli, Clostridium or C-difficile, flesh-eating bacteria (Meleney syndrome), golden Staphilicocci (Sarm), and streptococci  are rampant and killing thousands around the world.  Community cases of these resistant bacteria have increased from 6% to 25% in less than one decade.  The number of these dangerous cases has increased 17 folds in hospitals in one decade.

People raising pigs in the Netherlands are 760 times more prone or susceptible to catching the resistant bacteria than other people.  A sample of Sarm from a single industrially raised animal can be responsible for 20% of cases in the Netherlands.

The World Health Organization (WHO) warned that “this crisis is a menace to the entire world and might deprive us from the possibility of treating a variety of infectious diseases.”

For example, tuberculosis, scarlatina, diphtheria, syphilis, meningitis,… and other common diseases that can be treated might resurface as resistant bacteria if no new more powerful antibiotics are not invented.  It is to be remembered that one out of 4 people died of tuberculosis in the northern hemisphere half a century ago!

The European Union has banned supplying antibiotics in animal farm food.  This ban has increased by only 12 cents the kilo of meat.  Isn’t it worth the new increase in price and saving the trillion of dollars spent on health for diseases that should not be there in the first place?

Note:  Industrial cattle farms are the most polluting for the surrounding environment.  Methane gas (20 times worse than CO2) are emitted by cows and herbivores in large quantities.
