Recently the New York Times released information regarding new statements from Food Industry insiders that livestock injected with antibiotics is making many strains of bacteria harder to fight. Probiotic Action shares insight on what foods to potentially avoid, and how to start strengthening the immune system to fight the new and stronger bacteria strains.
David A. Kessler, commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration from 1990 to 1997 stated in the New York Times article, “While the F.D.A. can see what kinds of antibiotic-resistant bacteria are coming out of livestock facilities, the agency doesn’t know enough about the antibiotics that are being fed to these animals. This is a major public health problem, because giving healthy livestock these drugs breeds superbugs that can infect people. We need to know more about the use of antibiotics in the production of our meat and poultry. The results could be a matter of life and death.”
Livestock like meat and poultry are specifically known to be carriers of antibiotics, which, when ingested are weakening the good bacteria in the human immune system.
Fernando Perez of Probiotic Action explains why these meats with antibiotics are causing more harm than good. “ For humans, using antibiotics for illness kills the good and bad bacteria in the immune system, leaving the body with less good bacteria to help fight off new intruders. When we ingest meat with antibiotics, the same process occurs. Ingesting meat regularly with antibiotics not only kills the good bacteria, but allows bad bacteria time to learn how to resist new medication when illness occurs.”
Perez also suggests that if avoiding meat is not an option, reading the labels, and finding meat that is antibiotic free may help antibiot
