Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Demerit Badges

you-dont-sayBoy Scouts of America (BSA), under fire for a policy which prohibits membership for homosexuals, has come up with a jaw-dropping and breathless proposal they feel just might remedy the situation:

Fifty percent of ground turkey contains resistant E. coli, 10 percent of chicken parts and ground turkey tests positive for resistant salmonella, and 26 percent of chicken parts come contaminated with resistant campylobacter. (Grist.com – emphasis mine)

The government released this information in February. So why are we just learning these astounding numbers now? The results of supermarket testing for contamination was buried deep in the FDA’s 2011 Retail Meat Report. It took additional analysis and calculations on the part of the Environmental Working Group (EWG) to uncover just how terrifying the data truly is. We’re not just talking about bacterial contamination, we’re talking about antibiotic-resistant bacteria found in:

Scary, isn't it?

We’ve all been warned about the over-use of  antibiotics…
