Factory farms, antibiotics and superbugs: Lance Price at TEDxManhattan
http://tedxmanhattan.org http://saveantibiotics.org How antibiotics are being used to compensate for the overcrowded, stressful conditions on industrial farms and how that's creating superbugs that threaten public health. Lance Price is a public health researcher who works at the interface between science and policy to address the growing crisis of antibiotic resistance. In the laboratory, Dr. Price uses cutting-edge DNA sequencing to trace the origins of new antibiotic-resistant pathogens. By analyzing the genomes of bacteria found in humans, food, and livestock, Dr. Price and his colleagues have traced the origins of new superbugs to industrial livestock production. Dr. Price and his colleagues have also begun to broaden the scope of foodborne disease to include urinary tract infections caused by foodborne E. coli. In the policy arena, Dr. Price works with grassroots organizations, NGOs, and policymakers to develop science-based policies to curb antibiotic abuse in food-animal production and stem the emergence of new superbugs. Dr. Price's work was selected by Discover Magazine as one of the top 100 science stories of 2012. His research has also been covered by top-tier media around the world, including the BBC, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Scientific American, Men's Journal, and Fitness Magazine, among others.

Fix Food - Fix Antibiotics - Meat Without Drugs
Sign the petition now: http://www.meatwithoutdrugs.org/ AMERICANS ARE UNDER THREAT FROM ANTIBIOTIC-RESISTANT SUPERBUGS, making us vulnerable to common, once treatable infections. Unfortunately, a remarkable 80 percent of antibiotics in the U.S. are used not by humans, but by the meat and poultry industries so factory farm animals can grow faster and survive crowded and unsanitary conditions. This is creating superbugs and humans are exposed in a number of ways, including when we handle or eat undercooked meat. Our life-saving drugs are becoming less effective when we really need them. Unfortunately, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has refused to take meaningful action to restrict the use of unnecessary antibiotics in livestock production. But consumers can still do something to make change. We can be the catalysts to turn the tide on this public health crisis. We can show our support for companies that don't take our health for granted, and we are asking grocery stores to join us by choosing to only sell meat raised without antibiotics. We're calling on Trader Joe's to only source their meat from animals raised without antibiotics. As one of the most progressive national retailers, Trader Joe's has already demonstrated care for their customers' health by saying no to GMOs, artificial colors and trans fats in the products they sell. Trader Joe's can also be a leader by helping move the livestock industry in the right direction.

Tour of How Antibiotics Are Used on the Farm
Dr. Brad Jones, a veterinarian with the University of Nebraska and Great Plains Veterinary Educational Center takes viewers on a virtual tour of a livestock production facility to show the decision-making process regarding antibiotic use in cattle and pigs, including the diagnosis of illnesses, treatment and antibiotic use considerations and how animals are tracked from antibiotic administration to harvest. "I think the use of antibiotics in our industry is appropriate and I would also use the term responsible. It’s appropriate for animal well-being and comfort. It’s appropriate to treat certain diseases that affect the animal,” Jones says. “How we utilize antibiotics and the decisions we make when we give them have a lot of thought behind them; not only thought because we’re mandated to because of laws and rules, but thought because we understand the importance of maintaining use of antibiotics in our industry for the health and well-being of animals.”

Antibiotic Use In Farm Animals To End?
The World Health Organization warned on Tuesday, farmers should severely limit their use of antibiotics in animals. This in order to stop the growing threat of antibiotic resistance to the human population. Antibiotics are routinely used today to protect the health of the herd and promote animal growth. New guidelines issued by WHO call for an end to those practices in order to maintain the effectiveness of the current supply of antibiotics. This and to quell the rise of superbugs. They are resistant to almost all forms of medication. According to a report published in The Lancet on Monday, limiting the antibiotics given to food-producing animals ― such as chickens, cows and pigs ― can reduce antibiotic-resistant bacteria in those animals by up to 39 percent. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/who-antibiotics-farm-animals_us_5a01fa3be4b0920530585dd9?section=us_healthy-living http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Farmers Use Too Many Antibiotics
In a new report by the American Academy of Pediatrics calling for an end to overuse of antibiotics in animals. The "overuse" and "misuse" of antibiotics in animals and in people in largely to blame for antibiotic resistance. In 2012, most antibiotics in the United States weren't sold to help humans. Some 80%, or 32.2 million pounds, of antimicrobrial agents were for use with animals, according to the report. Some 60% of those drugs are the same ones that help fight infections in humans. If overexposure to antibiotics creates bacteria that can tolerate those drugs, that means doctors will no longer be able to use them to help treat people, hence this is a public health threat. http://rss.cnn.com/c/35494/f/676999/s/4b925c13/sc/14/l/0L0Scnn0N0C20A150C110C160Chealth0Cantibiotic0Eresistance0Emeat0Cindex0Bhtml0Deref0Frss0Ius/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

#AskAFarmer about antibiotic use
Healthy animals are the foundation of a safe and abundant food supply. Sometimes it’s necessary for farmers to treat cows with antibiotics when cows are ill, just as people sometimes need medication when they are sick. Dairy farms only use U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved antibiotics and work with their veterinarians to administer them. Milk from a cow being treated with antibiotics is separated to ensure it does not go into the milk supply. All milk is tested for antibiotics upon delivery at the dairy plant. Any milk that tests positive cannot be sold to the public. Festival Foods dietitian Lauren Tulig went to a farm to learn more: http://bit.ly/2p6xE7S We encourage you to #AskAFarmer about dairy farming and food.

Antibiotics in Beef
How much truth is there to claims of risk caused by the treatment of beef cattle with antibiotics? Nobody wants to eat beef containing antibiotics, but there’s a ton of misinformation out there on this controversial practice. Some people think that beef we get from these cows contains antibiotics. This has never been true. Antibiotics are quickly metabolized by the body. This is why when you take antibiotics, you have to take them every day. Each drug has an established “withdrawal time” which is anywhere from 0 to 60 days, during which treated animals cannot go into food production. This is verified by the US Food Safety and Inspection Service, the FDA, and the EPA. Some retailers market their beef as containing no antibiotics. This is deceptive, because no beef on the market contains antibiotics. In advertising they call this a “preemptive claim”, saying something about your product that’s also true of all similar products, in the hope that pointing it out will frighten consumers away from the competition. Don’t be fooled by deceptive marketing. The real concern is that using antibiotics in any species eventually evolves resistant bacteria. If such bacteria are in the meat and we eat it without properly cooking it, then it’s possible for those resistant bacteria to transfer to us humans. Therefore, about 85% of ranchers in the United States follow the Beef Quality Assurance program, which restricts antibiotic usage to the narrowest spectrum that works, treats the fewest possible animals, and limits usage to the treatment or prevention of disease. The guidelines also recommend avoiding types of antibiotics that are used in human healthcare wherever possible, to minimize any possible transmission of bacteria that might be resistant to drugs we use on ourselves. Some farmers, mostly of pigs, do use an antibiotic called ractopamine which promotes faster muscle growth. This is called a sub-therapeutic antibiotic. This usage, while not medicinal, is still subject to a withdrawal time, and this specific drug is not used in humans. So why don’t all farmers do this? One reason is that antibiotics are expensive, so farmers have to find a careful balance of using just enough to make economic sense without wasting money on unnecessary overuse. The bottom line is that as long as you’re cooking your meat, there is absolutely no realistic health concern about eating beef cattle that may have been treated with antibiotics. So enjoy your steak and hamburger, and don’t worry about an imaginary dose of antibiotics. References Antibiotic Stewardship is Not New to Cattle Ranchers. (2015, June 2).

Farm Animals and Antibiotics - CommonGround
Teresa Brandenburg, a Kansas farmer raising beef cattle explains the regulations surrounding the use of antibiotics and farm animals. She points out that antibiotics are only used when prescribed by a veterinarian and they always use the right dosage and keep good records. The FDA requires an animal that has been on antibiotics to stay on the farm a specific number of days while the medicine leaves the animal's system, and farmers must testify that they have adhered to these withdraw regulations before taking livestock to market. "I have a 3-year-old sonand if he gets sick I never hesitate to take him to the doctor and if the doctor tells me he needs antibiotics, I make sure that he get what he needs right away...The same goes for our beef cows," explains Theresa.

How Cow Antibiotics Are Increasing Methane Global Warming
Cows are create twice as much methane when they are treated with antibiotics compared to those who are not. This roughly equates to as much methane in a day as a car does. Antibiotics in factory farming is a common practice and is heavily relied on to prevent the spread of sickness among the cows. This methane is 25x more toxic than carbon dioxide and mainly comes from the cow's mouth rather than feces because of the way they digest food, which requires them to belch.

USDA's Tom Vilsack Addressess the Animal Agriculture Alliance About Antibiotic Usage in Animals
Q: Kay Johnson Smith, President & CEO, Animal Agriculture Alliance: "Despite the usefulness and benefits of antibiotics in livestock production, opponents are concerned about the possibility of unintended consequences to humans. FDA is set to address these concerns and animal ag groups are also taking action. Some still say it's not enough, especially given the state legislation that passed recently in California. What are your thoughts?" A: Tom Vilsack: "Well the Department of Agriculture is an integral part of a task force that the President established by executive order to take a look at this issue of antimicrobial resistance and figure out the best strategies. And within that strategy, there is the focus on judicious and appropriate use of antibiotics for livestock, understanding that there is a time and a place and an opportunity to use antibiotics appropriately and reasonably and to use it in the context of a veterinarian taking a look at all the circumstances and situations. And we see a continued acceptance of that notion as we travel around the country. We've been working with the FDA, the Food and Drug Administration, to educate producers about the appropriate use of antibiotics. That's the first thing. Secondly, there's a lot we don't know about antimicrobial resistance and so one of the things that we're doing at USDA is to encourage additional research. A lot of these pathogens are naturally occurring in the soil and there are also ways in which we potentially could reduce them on the farm. So there's a need for us to do more research and better education. And then finally looking at alternatives, probiotics and things of that nature. Are there ways in which we could potentially be more effective in prevention, rather than necessarily treatment. So there's an awful lot going on in this space and I really appreciate the fact that you're out there educating people because in this day and age with so much information, so much specialized information, sometimes people think they know what's going on, but in fact they may not. And it is, I think, important for folks to know farmers take this very seriously, they're very concerned about it and they are taking steps now to reduce the use because the market is demanding it and it's the appropriate thing. But making sure that we do it in a reasonable and thoughtful way so that we continue to have a strong livestock industry."

Ag Experts React to Antibiotic Plan
FAIRFIELD, IA (CBS2/FOX28) -- The Food and Drug Administration is now working to phase out the use of some antibiotics used to promote growth and feed efficiency in livestock processed for meat.The voluntary FDA plan asks pharmaceutical companies to stop labeling drugs for human infection as acceptable for use in animals. The hope is, if those drugs are only used when animals are really sick, it will cut down on the spread of antibiotic-resistant superbugs in people, and make the population healthier. For Francis Thicke, the program is a good first step. Thicke drives an electric four-wheeler up a rocky dirt path to the field where his organic dairy cows graze on grass in the summer and hay in the winter. By definition, these organic cows can't be fed antibiotics at all, so Thicke keeps them healthy in a different way. We have 60 small pastures on our farm and after each milking, twice a day, they go from pasture to pasture, Thicke said. That's the opposite of how most livestock in America live -- most of them cooped up in high-density confinements -- and why 70 to 80 percent of all the antibiotics in the country are fed to those animals, Thicke said. Most of them in conditions that are not healthy. That's why the antibiotics are used, he said. Thicke thinks the FDA's plan is a good place to start, but that the voluntary aspect is too big of a loophole. You might say a large enough loophole to drive a feed truck through, he said. No, I've talked to farmer all across the country and they're scared. FDA has made it clear they want some changes and they're going to make it happen, said Scott Hurd, associate professor in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Iowa State University. Hurd is also the former Deputy Undersecretary of Agriculture for Food Safety, and said, it is not realistic to think that industrial farms will all one day look like Thicke's -- he said confining animals is what makes American agriculture so efficient -- but it is one way to make the process safer. Antibiotics in livestock production are an important tool, they're not a crutch, Hurd said. Part of the plan also makes many current over-the-counter drugs only available through a veterinarian's prescription. Many industrial farms also have those veterinarians on staff, Thicke said.
