Louise Slaughter (who represents the Rochester area of Upstate NY) has put forward strong legislation to basically shut down the routine and uncontrolled use of antibiotics in livestock food and water which is causing this. Please take the time to read her release AND the legislation (HR 1150), which contains the history of knowledge of livestock antibiotic use in livestock and the promotion of resistant bacteria.

Due to the widespread and continual use of antibiotics bacteria have evolved (I said it) to be resistance to the current drugs in circulation. Drug resistant bacteria can only be neutralized with newer drugs. Unfortunately there has been something of a slow down in the development of new antibiotic drugs leading some in the medical community to now warn that drug-resistant bacteria represent a serious threat.
