+ - Farm workers carry drug-resistant Staph despite partial FDA antibiotics ban.->

Europe has long ago banned the use of antibiotics in livestock, but the FDA remains behind the curve with a partial ban. Thanks to large industrial farming operations, we all remain continously at risk as our last line of antibiotics is wasted on animals.
