Food quality concerns are not limited strictly to produce. "According to the Centers For Disease Control (CDC), conventional meat production, which regularly uses antibiotics, is contributing to antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria," Leah shared.
Basically, if you eat meat from these animals and it makes you sick, antibiotics may not be able to treat you. This isn't a "what if" problem; millions of people are infected each year in the US, and about 23,000 die due to complications.
According to Leah, "Because organic and grass-fed meats have lower cases of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, focusing on these would be a good solution. If you are on a budget, however, focus on more plant-based meals."
