Super Germs Found in U.S. Meat

Bacteria in meat have always been present; that's why it's important to cook meat properly before eating it. MedlinePlus reports on a study that found half the meat sampled from grocery store shelves is contaminated with antibiotic-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.

The likely reason behind this development is the routine use of low level antibiotics given to animals by food growers. Antibiotic therapy is instituted to help reduce the incidence of disease and death among the animals that we use for food -- turkey, pork, beef and chicken.

Lance Price, head researcher of this study conducted by the Translational Genomics Research Institute of Arizona explains that more than 130 meat samples were taken from 26 grocery stores in five states. Study findings concluded that 96 percent of meats tested were resistant to at least one type of antibiotic and 52 percent of meats tested were resistant to three or more types of antibiotics.

Staphylococcus aureus is one of more than 30 bacteria that cause infections in humans. Of all bacteria, Staph. aureus is the most frequent cause of infections, ranging from skin infections to pneumonia and toxic shock syndrome.
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA, is a form of the bacteria that is resistant to a group of antibiotics called beta-lactam, explains the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition to methicillin, this group of antibiotics includes penicillin and amoxicillin. This gives health care providers fewer medication options to successfully treat the Staph aureus infection.

If you see the "MRSA and Meat" article, comment on it! :please: There are even more articles and studies about the antibacterial properties of cannabis in my list- that first link in my sig, or look in the stickies in the medical section!

Lots of folks will read articles on MRSA- it's scary as heck! So let's keep that 4/20 energy going and educate about cannabis! Cannabis kills MRSA germs and it's been known since 1955!

And a marijuana marinade might be just the thing for your pot roast tonight! :Steak: :hungry:

Local honey is for sure THE BEST treatment for hayfever...mainly because it has LOCAL pollen in it and acts like an immunizer actionleaf.gif .... honey from other parts of the country...or another country , has different polled than wh@ you would have locally, as a rule... actual BRAND NAME medi honey is strained/filtered with minimal heating to remove these pollens and stuff because it is intended to be used on open wounds and such. If you can get local honecomb with the honey, chewing a small amount...about half a teaspoon full a day will significantly help most hayfever cases... muA
