There is now great concern over the overuse of antibiotics on animals such as pork, beef, and chicken also Turkey.

Today, most meat sold in the US (beef, pork, chicken, turkey, etc.) is raised in a CAFO.

It’s a corporate-controlled system characterized by large-scale, centralized, low profit-margin production, processing, and distribution systems, built around efficiency — producing more for less.

There has been an emergence of methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (LA-MRSA) which has been affecting babies and other diseases in adult humans

In other words to be safe it may need you to change your shopping habits when buying food products for your family especially if you are pregnant.

Organic, grass-fed, and finished meat that is humanely raised and butchered is really about the only type of meat that is healthy to eat.

So when looking for antibiotic-free meat, it’s best to familiarize yourself with the various labels currently in use, as some are useful, while others can be downright deceptive
If you go to The FoodRoutes site “Find Good Food” map can help you connect with local farmers to find the freshest, tastiest food possible. On their interactive map, you can find a listing for local farmers, CSA’s, and markets near you.
