"Polymyxins remain the last line of defense against antibiotic-resistant Gram-negative bacteria. Now, researchers report that a gene that confers resistance to these drugs is found in a growing number of bacteria from meat samples in China — and from some hospital patients. More worrying is that the gene, mcr-1, is found on small pieces of DNA called plasmids that easily spread between bacteria.

The researchers found that in 2011, more than 5% of Escherichia coli isolates from retail chicken and pork meat from China tested positive for the colistin (polymyxin E) resistance gene mcr-1. By November 2014, the last date for which data are available, the percentage of positive isolates had increased to approximately 25%.

Thus, not only have microbes now achieved resistance to polymyxin, but the resistance is spreading quickly. The rapid spread is a result of the fact that mcr-1 is not located on the chromosome, as has been the case for previously identified polymyxin-resistant genes, but is found on plasmids that bacteria exchange regularly."

As far as I can tell, it appears you're OK if you do not eat meat, or meat by products. I could be wrong.

It's not uncommon for a bug to be contagious. If that becomes the case, I don't think anyone is OK.

Aside from a spiritual belief(compassion for all living beings), going vegan may be for more selfish reasons- preservation.

We're animals too . .

This video, for me, is not meant to be a scare but another serious wake up call. It's sad though, when you've seen the cruelty and the awful conditions/treament of the animals that suffer from our meat industry and yet you still choose to eat meat... Then you see something like this and think, now that MY life is on the line being vegan doesn't look so bad.

Horrendous and I'm a part of that group. There's a lot of suffering in this world and in most cases we're the reason for it.

Dragonpie recently joined us on a mission back to Razaldorf. He is handling foreign affairs for an evolved civilization in the custard pie constellation.

So maybe it was dragonpie himself who introduced the antibiotic resistant bacteria on earth?

but I've been aware of what he is clearly expounding here for many years, at least rumours are circulating, not outpsoken dicussions, lest the population suddenly decides to go vegan and the meat industry is ruined.

Anyway, I take it that bacteria are not resistant to heat, so it is enough to eat meat well done. Many like it rare though. another source of contamination might be the handling of raw meat.

But th emost worrying development of course is that, by the mentioned interactions, antibiotic resistant bacteria are going to propagate everywhere in living environments. They can be particularly obnoxious or deadly in hospitals.
