The Food and Drug Industries Don’t Want You to Know the Facts
As stated by Kessler, we have more than enough evidence that using
antibiotics as growth promoters is threatening human health. Yet the drug and
food industries are doing everything they can to block proposed legislation
that would limit this practice, and both the FDA and the Senate Committee on
Health, Education, Labor and Pensions aid and abet them. For example, the
Committee took no action on a proposal from Senators Kirsten E. Gillibrand
(D-NY) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), which would require the FDA to report
data on agricultural antibiotics that it already collects but does not
disclose. According to Kessler:
“'In the House, Representatives Henry A. Waxman of California and
Louise M. Slaughter of New York, also Democrats, have introduced a more
comprehensive measure. It would not only authorize the FDA to collect more
detailed data from drug companies, but would also require food producers to
disclose how often they fed antibiotics to animals at low levels to make them
grow faster and to offset poor conditions.
This information would be particularly valuable to the F.D.A., which
asked drugmakers last April to voluntarily stop selling antibiotics for these
purposes. The agency has said it would mandate such action if those practices
persisted, but it has no data to determine whether the voluntary policy is
working. The House bill would remedy this situation, though there are no
Republican sponsors.' ...Lawmakers must let the public know how the drugs
they need to stay well are being used to produce cheaper meat.”
How to Avoid Hidden Antibiotics in Your Food
This is one of the many reasons why I always recommend buying your meat,
whether beef or poultry, from a local organic farmer rather than your local
supermarket. The only way to avoid this hidden source of antibiotics is to
make sure you’re only buying organic, grass-fed, free-range meats and organic
pasture-raised chickens, as non-medical use of antibiotics is not permitted
in organic farming.
If you live in an urban area, there are increasing numbers of community-
supported agriculture programs available that offer access to healthy,
locally grown foods even if you live in the heart of the city. Being able to
find high-quality meat is such an important issue for me personally that I've
made connections with sources I know provide high-quality organic grass-fed
beef and bison, free-range chicken and ostrich, all of which you can find in
my online store. The farms our supplier uses have three USDA inspectors on
hand that regularly inspect the packaging facility. Additionally, all of the
cattle are grass-fed on open pastures, and E. coli 0157 testing is performed
daily. You can eliminate the shipping charges though if you find a trusted
farmer right in your area.
The Weston Price Foundation has chapters all over the world and many of
them are connected with buying clubs in which you can easily purchase these
types of foods locally. Another resource you can try is Local Harvest, which
you can use to find farmers' markets, family farms, and other sources of
safe, sustainably grown food in your area.
For Optimal Health, Tend to Your Gut
The micro-organisms living in your digestive tract form a very important
"inner ecosystem" that influences countless aspects of health, including your
weight. More specifically, the type and quantity of organisms in your gut
interact with your body in ways that can either prevent or encourage the
development of many diseases, including heart disease and diabetes, and may
help dictate the ease with which you’re able to shed unwanted pounds.
Since virtually all of us are exposed to factors that destroy beneficial
bacteria in the gut, such as antibiotics (whether you take them for an
illness or get them from contaminated animal products), chlorinated water,
antibacterial soap, agricultural chemicals and pollution, ensuring your gut
bacteria remain balanced should be considered an ongoing process.
Cultured foods like raw milk yogurt and kefir, some cheeses, and
fermented vegetables are good sources of natural, healthy bacteria. So my
strong recommendation would be to make cultured or fermented foods a regular
part of your diet; this can be your primary strategy to optimize your body's
good bacteria. If you do not eat fermented foods frequently, taking a high-
quality probiotic supplement is definitely a wise move. In fact, this is one
of the few supplements recommended for everyone. A probiotic supplement can
be incredibly useful to help maintain a well-functioning digestive system
when you stray from your healthy diet and consume excess grains or sugar, or
if you have to take antibiotics.
