Hooray. The FDA has banned the preventative use of a commonly used antibiotic in all major livesotck. This is a major win for all of us because the practice of low dose drugs put into animal feed has been speeding the adaptation of bacterial resistance to these drugs. It is also a waste of resources, cruel treatment of animals, and helps pollute the down stream water systems from most confined animal operations. Please read the medical news today article for more detail and a statement from FDA rep.
Call the FDA and congratulate them too, if you can spare the time. Thanks FDA, for finally doing something smart!
