Are Animal Antibiotics a Threat? CBS Evening News Coverage Explains

The last couple of nights on the CBS Evening News, Katie Couric’s investigative reports gave some excellent arguments on why it’s important to keep antibiotics out of our meat.  I wanted to share the video with you here in case you missed it.  Neither video is long, and both are well worth the few moments to watch.  Let me know what you think.

Part II, which ran last night (Feb. 10, 2010) is entitled Antibiotic-Free Animals.  

It’s easy to find meat without antibiotics.  As mentioned in the second video, you’ll easily find meat without antibiotics just by reading the label.  Any farmer raising animals without them will proudly state so on their packaging.

  1. Thanks for posting this. I just sent this on to my family.

    I lead the type of life where I read/learn a lot about health and environmental issues, try to tell friends and family who don’t really listen or believe and end up having to wait until the news comes out via mainstream media (which usually takes years). It’s very frustrating!

  3. Yes, Laureen! It is frustrating waiting for what we’ve learned to hit the mainstream. I remember when I started this blog my son was just about 6 months old. We didn’t want to use plastic baby bottles (I nursed but sometimes you gotta bottle it!) and there was not a glass bottle to be had anywhere! I special ordered them from a tiny little online store. Now, over 3 years later, the health problems associated with plastic is finally making it in the limelight. We must have looked like the most overly-cautious parents hauling around our glass bottles! An example in my life of what you’re talking about.
