There are approximately 750
drug products approved for use in food animals.
 Antibiotics comprise a significant corner of
the market, especially those approved for use in
synthetically increasing the growth rate of animals.
The scope of antibiotic use is absolutely stunning.
Among the antibiotic drugs approved for use on animals
are bacitracin , bambemycins, chlortetracycline
, erythromycin, lincomycin, monensin, oleandomycin,
oxytetracycline, tylosin, virginiamycin, penicillin
, tetracycline , and nitrofurans (nitrofurazone,
Almost 50% of the antibiotics in use in the United
States are used on animals. It is now known,
but generally ignored by the FDA, USDA and food
industry that the use of antibiotics with food animals
results in the development of anti-biotic resistant
bacteria, rendering human treatment with other anti-biotics
ineffective. That is exactly what is happening out
there, isn’t it? Both animals and humans now
have this new problem to deal with. The medical,
pharmaceutical and food industries are literally
“making a killing.”
samples surveyed by the National Research Council
between 1979 and 1983 indicated high levels of
illegal antibiotics in the American meat supply.
NRC research revealed that only 1% of animal carcasses
were subject to USDA laboratory tests. The British
were smarter, and curbed the use of antibiotics
with animal feed in 1969, after studies found
possible hazards to human health. The FDA reacted
to the publicity generated by the British study
in 1970 by appointing a committee to “investigate
the matter.” Nothing was done.
In 1987, it was indicated that the creation of
an anti-biotic resistant strain of Salmonella
was a problem that was growing out of proportion..
In 1989, after receiving a risk assessment from
the National Academy of Science Institute of Medicine
that was “unable to find data implicating
antibiotics given to animals with illness in people”,
the FDA buried both knowledge of the 1969 British
scientific studies and the whole discussion. Meanwhile,
the number of bacteria that are becoming resistant
to antibiotics are increasing.
All the public media has done since 1990 is present
the public with a “mystery” with “no
apparent cause.” Criminal negligence? Yes.
The end result is that conditions are being deliberately
created where humans suffering from the general
decline of the immune system of the population,
due to biological and chemical contamination,
can no longer be treated by known antibiotic drugs,
insuring increased medical profits and increased
death rates filling population trimming mandates.
 About 30% of the chickens, 60% of the cattle
and 80% of veal calves and pigs are routinely given
drugs in their feed.
 Bacitracin can cause
an allergic cross-reaction in humans that may
prevent the effective use of other antibiotics
for the treatment of infection, especially neomycin
and streptomycin. Physicians Desk Ref.
 In 1968, the FDA proposed
revokation of the residue tolerance of this drug
in fish and poultry, but it is used today with
a tolerance of 7ppm for uncooked poultry and 5ppm
for raw marine products.
 Penicillin is given
to 6,500,000 cattle or cows at any one time to
treat the mastitis which appears as a result of
the use of other substances. It is added to the
feed or drinking water of salmon,catfish, lobsters,
chicken, pigs and turkeys. Food Additives Status
List, Jan 1, 1988. FDA. Humans who have developed
allergic reactions to pencillin become sensitized
to the antibiotics in animal food. People who
are in this category should avoid dairy products
 In December 1994,
it was announced in Science News, Vol 146, that
scientists were using Tetracycline to turn genes
“on and off”. The technique was developed
in 1992 by Hermann Bujard of the University of
Heidelberg in Germany. Tetracycline binds to DNA
structures. The implications are enormous, considering
the use of these compounds in both animal and
human allopathic medicine.
 The government was
advised to stop the use of nitrofurans in 1979,
but ignored the warnings. Human reactions to these
can involve allergic reaction, respiratory effects
and resistance to medical application of nitrofurans
to treat urinary tract infections.

also develop Salmonella infections that cannot
be treated. They are slaughtered and turned into
hamburger for human consumption.
