Is your meal free from antibiotics? Why does it matter? Your life may depend on it!
Do you think that one day you may need to take antibiotics? Maybe to fight MRSA (staph infection) or pneumonia? If that day comes and you have been ingesting food containing antibiotics, chances are the prescribed antibodies may be useless because a resistance to the antibiotics has been built up. This becomes a dangerous situation that could spiral out of control.
It becomes harder to figure out the antibiotics situation if you eat out. Do you ever eat out at a fast casual restaurant? If so, researchers rate chain restaurants on antibiotic use: How does your favorite stack up? Only a handful of fast-food chains received passing marks.
