Women with antibiotic-resistant UTIs from eating chicken

No one predicted that creating antibiotic-resistant E. coli in chickens would lead to an epidemic of drug-resistant UTIs in the US and Western Europe, as reported in The Atlantic:

The proposed link between resistant bacteria in chickens and those causing UTIs is not the first time researchers have traced connections between agricultural antibiotic use and human illness. But because the UTI epidemic is so large and costly, the assertion that it might be tied to chicken production has brought renewed attention to the issue.”

The Atlantic’s article discusses Amee Manges’ research that links antibiotics fed to chickens to women having antibiotic resistant UTIs.

This research presents another wake up call to stop the practice of using antibiotics in livestock feed!
