  • When we eat, these animals were also taking in the harmful chemicals used to fatten the animals up.

  • It becomes a public health issue when antibiotics that are important for human health are giving to animals on a massive scale.

  • This act encourages the growth of drug resistant bacteria that can lead to diseases being progressively harder to treat.

  • Yeah, however, there is a solution to this issue.

  • Animals like humans, need antibiotics to help their bodies fight or prevent certain types of infections.

  • It is the overuse of these antibiotics that causes the animals to gain weight and fills them with the chemicals that are harmful for us to ingest.

  • Mhm.

  • The FDA has taken note of this and implemented a policy that regulates how much medicine animals receive and a process to ensure that they're monitored by veterinarians.

  • Making sure you buy your meat from your local deli or farmers market is a great way to avoid eating animals that have been fattened up for consumption.

  • Switching to a vegetarian or vegan diet can also ensure that your body doesn't fall harm from the drugs being pumped into livestock.
