A new study has shed even more evidence that meat products are not
safe. Researchers at the Translational Genomics Research Institute
tested 137 packages of chicken, turkey, and other meat bought at
twenty-six grocery stores in five cities across the country. Nearly half
of the tested samples were infected with Staphylococcus aureus bacteria,
which are known to cause staph infections and a host of other serious
illnesses. Moreover, half of the bacteria found in the study were
resistant to at least three antibiotics. “Antibiotics are the most
important drugs that we have to treat Staph infections; but when Staph
are resistant to three, four, five or even nine different antibiotics —
like we saw in this study — that leaves physicians few options,” said
Lance B. Price, Ph.D., senior author of the study and Director of TGen’s
Center for Food Microbiology and Environmental Health.

Nationwide study finds U.S. meat and
poultry is widely contaminated
The typical American diet is full of animal products, including meat
of all types, which is obtained from animals raised in factory farms.
These intensive confinement systems are the perfect vessels to allow
bacteria to mutate due to the irresponsible high amount of antibiotics
given to these poor animals. When we cause misery to God’s animals, we
are causing misery to ourselves and the rest of Creation.
