Bittman on the FDA’s Cephalosporin Ban

January 9, 2012

To recap, the F.D.A. will partially ban a disappearing family of antibiotics that is relatively non-existent in animal agriculture and that the meat industry does not rely upon. Not exactly a bold move. Kind of like protecting less than 1 percent of the acreage in the rainforest or 1 percent of the fish in the sea while allowing producers to devastate the rest, and patting yourself on the back to boot.

Perfectly said. It’s time to go after the antibiotics that are most commonly abused by agribusiness. Link.
