Biotin-resistant (vitamin-resistant) microbes

Probably I won't be heard because this is just a deaf dead-end email address.

But you are more right than you can imagine. It is not just antibiotics we must be afraid of being used in feedstock. If we start using antivirals some factory farmer may make another undeserved dollar at a high cost to us all.

The important difference between humans and bacteria for purposes of species evolution is expected life span. That means bacteria can evolve much much faster than we can. So we are at a big disadvantage when it comes to evolving our species. Also, our feedstock is at approximately the same relative disadvantage.

The danger is much much higher than most people think. The human species is at a definite risk from both antibiotic and antiviral resistant drugs. These microscopic creatures can not only evolve resistance to our chemical defenses but quickly spread to wipe out an entire species of our food animals. Plus they can easily spread between mammalian and avian species.

Use by farmers cause super virulent versions of diseases we haven't even conquered yet. For instance recent testing shows a Vitamin may be the key to fighting MS. But the primary uses of the substance biotin (the Vitamin) cause it to be used in large quantities for cosmetic and veterinary purposes. The use of this drug is unlimited in factory farms. But if MS is caused by some unknown microbe, we may have Vitamin-resistant species before we can have a chance to use it to cure MS. MS may become incurable not in the past but in the near future. The same may be true of other diseases. We may never catch up with the farmers long enough to cure them.

In fact use of antimicrobial substances may even cause many gut-borne diseases such as MS.

We should be banning a lot more than just antibiotics in farming.

Because we raise other species for food, we must be ultra careful how we save them from natural disease, lest we wipe out our own species.

Let’s build a million-strong call to outlaw the cruel and deadly abuse of antibiotics in factory farms, and deliver it to each of them. Once we win in Europe, we’ll take this around the world.

Much of modern medicine depends on antibiotics, including cancer treatments, and surgery and a major report estimates that 10 million more people will die per year by 2050 if we don't save antibiotics.
