Which food and restaurants are doing the most to create dangerous superbugs?

You've probably heard about people dying from scary antibiotic resistant bugs that can no longer be treated. Certainly part of the problem is that doctors give out antibiotics too quickly for colds and kids' ear infections. But the vast majority of antibiotics are used on livestock...to help them grow faster and prevent diseases caused by inappropriate foods and crowded conditions. The FDA recently passed a regulation (with a big loop hole) regarding antibiotics and meat. In this article, you can find out:

...what the FDA ruled
...what the loophole is
...which of your favorite restaurant chains have the best and worst practices around antibiotics.

If you don't want to go back to the olden days before antibiotics where a scratch or having your wisdom teeth out or having a baby could lead to death, pay attention to the food you buy and the restaurants you frequent.
