Katie Couric/ CBS story: Antibiotics in Agriculture
Anyone catch this 2-part story? It aired 2/9 & 2/10... find links at http://www.ecovore.org/blog/?p=852
Haven't seen all the 2nd part, as computer overheats easily w/ video (grrr!!), but seems like some high-profile/ mainstream attention to at least one particular problem with the way industrial animal ag does business...
Glad to see people (even non veggie types!) thinkin' about this, & going, 'Hey, this might be a problem or somethin'!
I saw one part of it. I thought it was pretty well done, I guess. I don't know, I just got the whole "michael pollan anti-factory farm but eat local organic meat" vibe. You could totally tell that pork board lady didn't believe a word she was saying though...that most farms use anti-biotics "responsibly." She was lying through her teeth.
I saw this on Vegan.com... I hope people actually caring about what they shovel into their face becomes a growing trend... I think it is catching on a bit... Especially with all the press our lifestyle (in general) has had lately... Food Inc., Eating Animals, etc.
I think you might need a new computer ::)
