Oh boy, burgers at school today!

Watch the first episode, of the last season, of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution if you really want to see the process used for much of the ground beef we eat. You can watch for free on Hulu. Pretty gross.

Another shocking fact is that it is pretty hard to find beef that is fed what cattle are supposed to be feed. Corn feed is not what the should or want to be eating and it makes them sick (we cannot eat most of the corn grown in this country without processing into corn syrup and so forth either). So ranchers pump them up with antibiotics to keep them from getting sick. In fact 67 percent of antibiotics sold in this country are to the livestock industry.

Obviously we ingest them and the long term effect is antibiotic resistance to even simple staff and strep infections. Hospitals are already concerned that they cannot get patients to respond to antibiotic therapies without mass doses of IV versions.

Sort of ironic that Superman (aka Christopher Reeves) with everything he was going through and that could have killed him died for sores that would not respond to antibiotics. I am of a generation where antibiotics where handed out like candy and for every ailment whether appropriate or not. I too have begun to pay the price in the form of growing antibiotic resistance.
