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

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "New research out of the University of North Carolina now shows factory farm workers actually carry drug-resistant staph. 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."
