In what can only be described as a food freedom win, the FDA has reversed their decision to de-regulate antibiotic use in livestock, poultry, and swine. I wrote about this a few weeks ago and mentioned that CAFOs, or Confined/Commercial Animal Feeding Operations, accounted for roughly 80% of the antibiotic use in America. That is a staggering figure!

These commercial farms inject the animals with sub-therapeutic levels of common antibiotics in order to accelerate weight gains, not to mention the fact that cows and other livestock tend to suffer from a variety of ailments and disease when fed a diet of GMO corn, soy, and other grains in these tightly packed, unsanitary commercial lots.

Cows, as we all learned in elementary school, eat grass all day, and the cheaply made, genetically modified grains they are fed in CAFOs disrupt their normal digestive system, to say the least.
