Let’s label meat when “Raised without antibiotics.”

My hero Mark Bittman, NYTimes columnist and a leader against use of antiobiotics in animal feed, writes, “I think we’re looking at an industry-friendly response to the public health emergency of diseases caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria, resistance that is bred in industrially raised animals… this overuse of antibiotics is leading to increasing bacterial resistance, that we’re breeding an army of supergerms.”

“Push for labeling: ‘Raised without antibiotics’ is a label we could pay more attention to. And push our markets to carry more truly antibiotic-free meat, and buy it.
