Did you know that it is estimated that one glass of commercial, non organic milk purchased from a grocery store may contain the residues of up to one hundred antibiotics? Or that commercial cattle and dairy cows are given antibiotics regularly just to make them gain weight more quickly, and not because they are sick?
I didn't know either of these facts before I started the Maker's Diet five years ago. As it turns out, the FDA is just now catching on to these little known facts, (or is just now choosing to care) and has decided to do something about it. My husband saw this article in Google News today, talking about the FDA's recent statement they released concerning antibiotic usage in animals, and its ramifications. Check out the original article here.
Although it's really great that they are stepping in, the process is undoubtedly going to take a very long time, and in the meantime, you'd be much better off switching your meat and dairy to safer, antibiotic and hormone free alternatives that meet the Maker's design.
