Antibiotics Useless on Pigs

This site looks like something a girl would do. It is hard to read, so you are on your own.  Maybe try the print function.

This will give new meaning to Biblical admonition to avoid pigs and pork.
Lev_11:7 And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.
Lev_11:8 Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.

Another fellow what’s pretty smart, says: “Bacteria share the genes conferring antibiotic resistance by creating little circles of DNA code called ‘plasmids’, which are excreted and can be taken up by other bacteria and incorporated on their genomes. Plasmids can contain the coding for more than one kind of antibiotic resistance, making it even more likely that the resistant strains will dominate when the environment has antibiotics in it.

But, he goes further and says that this is evolution, in action. He may be smarter than me, but that ain’t evolution.

He continues: “Giving pigs antibiotics literally puts the value of a pig as higher than the value of a human. Since this practice was not stamped out at the first inkling of resistant strains of bacteria, demonstrates the sheer unadulterated stupidity of mankind. The fact that the practice continues foretells the return to a time when the horrors of bacterial infections were everyday challenges. Go back to the Civil War, when wounds were a death sentence. That is what we are looking at. Surgery will become very problematic. IV’s will be problematic. Sutures will be problematic. And why?

Fatter pigs, more profits, a corrupt FDA, a willfully ignorant electorate and complicit legislators. Politicians who think they are immune [sic] from society’s problems.

Everyone is due for an education. Unfortunately, revisiting the problem will not mean that it can be solved. You cannot run time in reverse, or unbreak an egg.

The issue with pigs seems to be in the way they detoxify, rather than what they eat. Hogs harbor toxins.

Are we next?

“Super” pigs grow bigger and faster than traditional hogs. All you need to do is shine a light in their faces 24 hours a day, cram them into small cages, feed them GM corn, and pump ‘em up with drugs from pharmaceutical pushers. Only one problem – super pigs are loaded with “super” bacteria. Ah, the industrialization of food.
