The pres­ence of an­tibi­otic residue in chicken is not good news for meat lovers. Is our food safe to con­sume?

Not just chicken; fish has be­come un­safe too. In­dian fish­er­men are us­ing dan­ger­ous chem­i­cals, in­clud­ing formalde­hyde and urea, to pre­serve fish.

Same goes for vegetables and fruits like mango.

Farm­ers are ap­par­ently giv­ing oxy­tocin in­jec­tions to grow gourds quickly. It is also known that vegetables are painted with lead to make them ap­peal­ing. Food now has be­come dan­ger­ous.

This is rub­bish. There has been no sci­en­tific study to support that an­tibi­otic re­sis­tance is de­vel­oped due to poul­try.

For fu­ture gen­er­a­tions, it will be like a trea­sure hunt to get pure food.

I made a friend read CSE's anal­y­sis on an­tibi­otic residue in chicken while he was en­joy­ing his meat. He seemed happy to know that his food was pro­vid­ing him with free an­tibi­otics. Peo­ple are just not aware of an­tibi­otic re­sis­tance.
