The Unseen Invader: Antibiotics in Your Dinner

The Invisible Daily Dose of Antibiotics

I've got a question for you. Are you unknowingly being served antibiotics on your dinner plate? It might sound bizarre, but here's the truth. Every meat dish consumed in our beloved country is like an uninvited antibiotic party for your system.

Let's paint a picture with numbers. The data visualization I'm about to share may stagger you. It's a snapshot of antibiotic sales across the nation. Observe the daunting dark red segment marking an alarming 81%. This represents our beef, pork, and chicken consumption. Yes, you read it right! These animal consume 81% of all antibiotics, leaving a meager 19% for human consumption. So, even if you've never had a prescribed antibiotic course but you indulge in meat, you're unknowingly swallowing antibiotics.
