I just want to call everyone’s attention to a couple of really good article’s written by the New York Time’s Nicholas Kristof. In two related op-eds (the first, and the second) Kristof discuses the massive use of antibiotics in factory farms and what that means for resistant superbugs that can kill humans. Definitely a must read! These articles only reinforce how when it comes to food issues, it is difficult to separate concern for the well being of the environment, non-human animals, and animals.
