I’m kind of obsessive about food safety, and that obsessiveness was only magnified after I read Fast Food Nation. One of the most disturbing current agricultural practices is the use of antibiotics in animal feed. This isn’t one of those things that you can ignore if you’re a vegetarian, either (I’m not a vegetarian anyway), since it’s creating resistant strains of all sorts of nasty bacteria. Anyway, the latest group to denouce this use of antibiotics is the American Medical Association, which joins such other radical leftist groups as the World Health Organization and the American Public Health Association.
